Pokhara is a most picturesque area and in the old part of the town you will see the former bazaar buildings. The newer townshop is on the bank of beautiful Lake Phewa. Although Pokhara is only 204 kilometers from Kathmandu the road there is rough and the traffic fearful. With an hour break for lunch it took us 9.5 hours to get there and 9 hours to return. Our English tour company said it would not fly there us due to the reputation of Nepalese airlines.

Pokhara Pokhara is a bustling metropolis located 120 miles west of Nepal's capital, Kathmandu. As the provincial capital it is nine times bigger in area than Kathmandu. Also the altitude varies from 2713ft in the south, to 5710ft in the north. Also the lofty Annapurna Range has three of the ten most high mountains on the planet, some of which are within15 to 35 miles of this spacious valley. If you are a backpacking/mountaineering enthusiast the famous Annapurna Circuit via trekking through the Annapurna Conservation Area may greatly be appealing. Since Pokhara is a humid, subtropical zone, it is warmer than many other parts of Nepal...thus it is less of an extreme climate. Be forewarned,it is wise to have available rain gear...such as umbrellas and windbreakers, sweaters, etc....especially if venturing out in Fall or Winter. In terms of accommodations there are two 5star hotels and many midrange and budget lodgings in the town. It is best to inspect them in person if possible to help ensure that you will be satisfied with the various available choices. For an outlying day trip adventure, signup at your hotel or travel agency for the Sarangkot sunrise tour via taxi for excellent panoramic vistas of the Himalayan Range, as at dawn the views are awesome! Also, keep your eyes open for local street festivals....traditional music and dance events which showcase the best of Nepali folk culture. Here you will encounter talented multi~Instrumentalists playing drums, bamboo flutes and sarangi. Pokhara is said to have the most cultural festivals of any area of Nepal. When is all is said and done you may want to visit a juice bar where delicious tropical drinks are served. I hope that you will enjoy what attributes Pokhara has to offer!

After the Everest Base Camp Trekking I was delighted to be in Pokhara for the deserved rest. It is a very peaceful city, but full of nice restaurants, and sites. While you are resting, you won't be bored. Plenty do do and see. and above all, I've missed the terror of the earthquake in Katmandu as in Pokhara, it was very mild a with zero casualty. Thanks to the Universe!

If you like riding bike around countryside and mountain,rent a decent mountain bike on lakeside street and enjoy it. Remember to ask for a helmet.

Actually my short visit to the old town of Pokhara was not in my itenary because i have no information about the existing of this place, but the manager of Silver Oaks Inn hotel advised us to visit this place . This old town, known Purano Bazaar by the locals, only 4km from Phewa Lake, located in the north of Pokhara. We spend about one hour, from 4.30pm to 5.30pm walking through a narrow street lined with old shops and houses . The appearance of the old shops and warehouses along the street are very different with other shops and warehouses in Pokhara. Most of the building made from brick in red colour and with elaborate wood curving. According to my guide, the architecture of the old buildings was inherit from Newari tribes. In 1752, the king of Kaski invited Newaris from Bakhtapur to Pokhara to promote trade, Newari people well known as traders, and their heritage well preserved until now.
