Situated in the central Nepal, Pokhara is one of the most beautiful tourist cities in Nepal. It is best described as a roughshorn resort town, a place to relax, go on leisure walks, ride boats and bikes, find a shaded area and read a book, or sit on the lakeside terrace of a restaurant enjoying the best lake and mountain views in Nepal while eating Thamel-style fare. Not surprisingly, Pokhara is the most visited destination in the country next to Kathmandu.
The small valley town of Pokhara is located some 125 miles west of Kathmandu. It is the hub of the central mountains, used as a base by trekkers because of its proximity to several popular hiking routes. There are several tourist buses for Pokhara run frequently to and from Kathmandu.
During the dry season, it takes about six hours to reach Kathmandu from Pokhara, which includes the typical lunch stop at Mugling. The ride is bumpy but an interesting one that passes through picturesque villages, river gorges, and pretty terraced fields. Some choose to fly one way and bus the other, or vice-versa.
Pokhara valley is the largest in Nepal, but its perennial problem is its shortage of water for irrigation. The city is situated 3,000 feet above sea level at a lower level than Kathmandu and is only 20 miles south of the central Himalayas. This gives residents great close-up views of the mountains, as well as an astounding annual rainfall of more than 150 inches caused by clouds dumping their rain as they crash into the peaks.
