Pokhara valley is one of the most picturesque spot of Nepal, it is known as the 'Jewel of the mid-west'. With the magnificent Annapurna range of mountains as a backdrop and the serenity of the three lakes of Phewa, Rupa and Begnas, Pokhara is the ultimate destination for relaxation. The valley has grown in recent years as the destination for boating, bird watching, trekking and mountain biking.
Its pristine air, the spectacular backdrop of the snowy peaks, the serene lakes and the surrounding greenery make it 'the jewel in the Himalaya', a place of remarkable natural beauty.
Lakeside sprawls beside Phewa Lake and is reminiscent of Thamel except for the ample space and miniscule traffic which makes Pokhara so much more enjoyable and relaxed than its counterpart in Kathmandu. The enchanting Pokhara valley with the dominating presence of Mt. Machhapuchhare (Fishtail Mountain) in the background is the gateway to the Annapurna region where many a trekker finds his Shangri-la.
