    After the Everest base camp trek, we took a bus to Pokhara to relax, recuperate and chill out by the lake. But it turns out that once we saw the scenery here, we regretted not trekking the Annapurna Circuit instead of toward Everest. The mountain views at sunset or under a full moon -- well, it's hard to imagine it getting any better than this, anywhere in the world.

    Super-easy-going town by the lake. Great place to chill out for a few days. Pokhara has enough guesthouses and cafes with Nepali and foreign food. When you're tired of relaxing, take a yoga class or meditation retreat, take a hike, or cycle around the lake. Or, better yet, go trekking in the Annapurna.

    What's not to like about Pokhara? Sure, it's a bit of a tourist trap, and you may tire of the legions of t-shirt salesmen stridently trying to induce a purchase; but this lakeside town surrounded by stunning Himalayan peaks is undoubtedly beautiful, and a great place to rest going to or coming from a trek in the nearby Annapurna massif. Like Kathmandu, it's got a score of good, cheap guesthouses, bars, and restaurants, and a pleasantly relaxed vibe. Venture out on a boat into the lake for some photos (be sure to bargain), or complete the one-day circuit trek around the lake, taking in awesome scenery and a hillside village or two along the way.

    Nestled up against the Annapurna mountain range and within 30 (linear) miles to 3 of the ten highest mountains in the world -- Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, and Manaslu, Pokhara is Nepal's second largest city and a hub of activity for Nepali and travelers both. Here you'll find lovely mountain views and a natural launch pad for many an outdoor adventure opportunity in that region.

    Although I can't say I passed much time in town, I found my short post-trek stay here to be comfortable and fairly relaxing compared to the much more hectic pace of life in Kathmandu. So needless to say, you too should have no problem turning down the pace and settling in to a more palatable rhythm for the next leg of your trip.

    Hire a boat and spend a day (or night) exploring Phewa Tal, the great lake that is at the heart of the city. Or row across and then leave the boat behind while you take the trail up to Shanti Stupa (the World Peace Pagoda) which sits atop a hill on the other side. Surrounded by peaks and forest, this lovely lake makes not only a great daytime outing, it also serves as a central gathering place for local townspeople and travelers alike. Lakeside you'll find a wide range of restaurants with local and international fare, relaxed cafes, lively bars, shops selling everything from souvenirs to mountain gear, and all types of street activity. Stroll among young Nepali couples and family groups gathered along the shore, stop in for a Mo mo, check your email at a cafe, then grab a Nepal Ice or an Everest in time for sunset. No doubt you'll have soon be off on one of the many hiking, mountain biking, trekking, rafting, or even paragliding -- with eagles no less! -- adventures that await. Or just plan to spend a day or two exploring the surrounding area at a slower pace. You certainly won't find many places in the world offering better views for any of these activities.

    Like the rest of nepal, Pokhara is simply amazing! The warm weather and stunning lake side make it the perfect place to relax and give your body some time to recover after the grueling, yet magnificent trek through the Anapurnas. Although Pokhara is the third largest city, it is significantly more relaxed than the hustle and bustle of the rickshaw lined streets of Kathmandu. Definitely recommend checking it out!

    A laid-back lake-side town that's the base for many back packer services. Cheap and clean accommodation, good food choices, and an array of outdoor activities ranging from trekking in the Himalayas to rafting with the Nepalese national team, to paragliding.

    we travelled to Pokhara via Biratnagar, their airport was so tiny, and it was like a local buss stand.. planes were also those small ones without air-conditioning, i remember we had girls throwing up the entire journey.. but alls well that ends well, once we reached pokhara, the beauty of the place made it worthwhile.. pokhara is a hill station, it was winters, so it was really really cold there.. but the view of the himalayas is mind-blowing from pokhra, looks so close to u, its wonderful!!

Description

Pokhara is the third largest city in Nepal, and the most popular among tourists. Its lakeside location offers both a respite from the harsh, mountainous Tibetan plateau and an embarkation point for Himalayan trekking. The city is modern and comfortable, but most of the attractions in the area are of the natural variety. Be sure to visit any (or all!) of the lakes in the area (Phewa, Bengas, Rupa ... read more
Tal, Dipang Tal). Renting a boat is very cheap and highly recommended. Due to its proximity to some of the highest mountain peaks in the world, Pokhara is a common starting point for trekkers, especially those attempting the Annapurna circuit. However, if a twenty-five day trek isn’t up your alley, there are plenty of shorter treks and day hikes available. Annapurna base camp is an eight-day trek, and well worth it for the views of massive Himalayan peaks. Sarankot is a two-day hike (with an overnight stay in an on-the-mountain guesthouse) with beautiful sunrise and sunset vistas. Nepalese food is not well known in the western world; don’t let that hinder you. The cheapest and often most delicious food can be found at the many street vendors that fill Pokhara’s downtown. Accommodations of all levels are present, making Pokhara, one of the most beautiful places in the world, accessible to hostel-hoppers and 5-star-ers alike.
