Lake City

Pokhara, the second largest city in the country, attracts visitors with its superlative natural wonders and easygoing atmosphere. The lakeside settlement charms visitors, with colorful wooden boats bobbing in the waters and a backdrop of rugged hillsides and snowy peaks. Trips to Pokhara often come before or after great physical exertion, and the pleasant tea rooms, street food stalls, and accommodations make the city a restful and restorative place to visit at either end of a trek. The city boasts a large number of outdoor adventure tour operators, with hiking, paragliding, climbing, and caving to be enjoyed in the world-famous mountain ranges that surround.

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.
