    You should visit it is the wave city but it's nothing on the other side of the road with respect to other attractions in the city but it's nothing otherworldly.

    It's cool and it made good in July, watch it slide a little on the ground, then go see the bats a little higher, for the slender one out with finesse, for paunchy them output as input.

    Small park including the cave. The cave is fun for a few minutes, after that you get wet and bored, exit by the entrance, otherwise you have to climb trough a narrow muddy part of the cave. Unless you...  more »

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
