The Pokhara Valley – one of the most picturesque and polpular tourist spots of Nepal, is adorned by its lovely Phewa, Begnas, and Rupa lakes. Situated at mere 200 kilometers west of Kathmandu, Pokhara is well connected by air or by bus from Kathmandu and Bhairahawa – a border town near India. This marvelous valley is treasure of nature’s wonders. Beautiful lakes known as “taal” in Nepali that offers fishing and boating and magnificent mountains like Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Manaslu (8, 128m), Macpuchhre (6,997m), the five peaks of Annapurna and others are Pokhara’s pride.

Mountain views can be more spectacular than one envisions. The still waters mirroring the enormous mountains are some of the features of this place. Pokhara has pleasant climate with its lake waters generally warm and ideal for swimming. Lakeside, the most sought after site of the city is one of its kinds. The well lit shops around Lakeside are illumined like Christmas tree and it is worth spending at least an evening at this fantastic place.

The mountains viewd are:

Dhaulagiri                   (26,795 ft; 8,167m)
Annapurna I                (26,545 ft; 8,091m)

Pokhara’s proximity to the mountains and scenic lakes of the region makes it an ideal place for the ultralight base.

Various flight durations starting from 15, 30, 60 or 90 minutes are available to quench our flying thirst. However there are some massive requirements to go for this lifetime experience and for that you simply have to leave your woes behind on earth, soar to the heights, bathe in the clouds, reach out for the mountains and kiss the azure sky. The spectacular view from high up there will make you easily let go everything for a while.

Since Pokhara is the starting point for classic routes like the Jomsom trail, it has become an ideal stopover for the trekkers for a lazy recuperation after the three-week Annapurna Circuit.

And it doesn’t disappoint the non-trekkers either. The valley offers mountain views and glimpses of rural Nepali life going far beyond those of the Kathmandu Valley. In brief, let’s say Pokhara  is a wonderfully relaxing place something spectacular to offer to all its aficionados.
