Pokhara is a rare combination of the long arrays of snow clad peaks, crystal clear lakes, turbulent rivers with deep gorges and picturesque villages inhabited by simple and friendly ethnic people.
Situated at the lap of the panoramic Annapurna Himal, the climate of Pokhara remains favorable all the year round neither to warm not too cold. The moment you step into any part of Pokhara the first thing that takes you to immediate delight is the gorgeous view of the gigantic mountains. Pokhara is infact, the first and foremost convenient point for mountain-oriented sightseeing. Mt.Annapurna, literally meaning the GODDESS of Abundant Harvest, lies at a horizontal distance of 40km from the valley of Pokhara which is at an elevation of just 900 meter above main sea level. Some mountain peaks visible from Pokhara are Mt.Dhaulagari(8167m),Annapurna(8091m), Mt.Machapuchhre,Lamjung Himal, Mansalu and Himalchuli.
Pokhara is a city of fine lakes with crystalline water. The lake in the immediate vicinity of the city is Phewa Tal with an island temple dedicated to Goddess Barahi in the middle. This legendry second largest lake of the Kingdom remains a major source of attraction for the visiting tourist.

The city of Pokara is renowned for its setting rather than its historical or cultural endowments. Its quiet lakeside location and proximity to the mountains mean it is an ideal place for recovering from (or gearing up for) a trek, taking leisurely strolls or simply putting your nose in a good book. And wouldn't you know it, Pokhara has some of the country's best accommodation and restaurants as well. There's a batch of Tibetan settlements, a hilltop monastery and the pretty Devi Falls nearby. Day walks can be taken to Sarangkot (1592m), the limestone caves at Mahendra Gufa or Rupa and Begnas Tals lakes. More exertion (but not much more) will be required to tackle the three to four-day Annapurna Skyline Trek.
