Pokhara is one of the most scenic cities in Nepal and its lakeside is blessed with beautiful nature. It is a lovely water body surrounded by green hills and snow clad peaks. When I was there last month, I did not get to see any snow clad mountain views due to the cloudy weather, but I saw mist shrouded hills, slippery dirt trails, sensationally green country side and very pleasant weather. The people of Pokhara are also very nice and so is the easy pace and charm of this city.
The Phewa Lake area of Pokhara is ideal for the traveling family or the couple as it offers a multitude of exploration options that include boating on the lake, visit to nearby temples, stupas, paragliding over the lake, a relaxed evening walk by the lakeside, lots of shopping and great dining options. The next time you think of a Himalayan holiday retreat, think of Pokhara and be blown away from its easy pace and rich nature.
