The Pokhara Valley at 827 meters above sea level and 200 km west of Kathmandu is one of the most picturesque spots in Nepal. Glorious views of the Annapurna Range of the Himalayas including Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I - IV and the magnificent "fish tail mountain" Machhapuchhare are visible from the town. Machhapuchhare for example, is only 28 kilometers from Pokhara's Phewa Lake, without a single mountain range intervening between the two. The beauty of the valley is enhanced by its lakes -- Phewa, Begnas,and Rupa, which have their source in the glacial region of the Annapurnas. Pokhara has a much more tropical feel to it than other mountainous regions; a fact well appreciated by the beautiful diversity of flowers which prosper in its environs. Indeed, the valley surrounding Pokhara is home to thick forests, rapid rivers, emerald lakes, and of course, the world famous views of the Himalaya. Also, since Nepal is further south than north American mountain ranges, the snow levels in Nepal are higher. In fact the lower snow level in the Annapurna Himalayas start at 15,000 feet; higher than the summit of the tallest mountain in the contiguous 48 states
Pokhara is a big tourist spot because it has the beautiful Phewa Tal Lake, great mountain scenery, and is the gateway to the most popular treks in Nepal. It is one of the most beautiful places in Nepal. There are several excellent one day trips and short works in the area. Some of the best river rafting tours in Nepal begin nearby. It is a pleasant laid-back, relaxed place to stay for a while. Located at just 800m above sea level, it is close to the 8000m Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges and there some outstanding views to the north. Machhapuchhare(Fishtail Peak), which is one of the most beautiful mountains in the world, is right next to the city. Pokhara .
