Pokhara in Pictures

Pokhara is the second biggest city of Nepal (after Kathmandu). Sprawled around the fabled Phewa (Fewa) Lake, mirroring three of the worlds top 10 highest mountain peaks - Annapurna, Mansalu and Dhaulagiri, the place is a retreat like few others. 

The pin point peak of Macchepuchere (Fish-tail), few dark-long caves (including a bat-cave - literally having thousands of bats hanging upside down from the roof) and a world peace stupa perched atop a hill (providing the panoramic view of the white mountains) are the prominent treats to the eye here. The place also serves as the base for several sought after trek-routes and adventure sports like white water rafting and paragliding.

Machherepuche (Fishtail - from another angle you can the twin peaks shaped like a fish tail - or like the Sauron's eye)



Seti Gandak - The river along with another dozen rivulets and lakes split the valley by deep gorges created by them
