Pokhara is one of the main tourism centers in Nepal. The city is located in a subtropical valley dotted with lakes. The Annapurna range is at a distance of 30 to 40 kilometers away provides a stunning backdrop. The proximity to the snow-covered mountains and the gentle and picturesque landscape at its feet have contributed to Pokhara�s growing popularity with travelers. The magnificent scenery is filled with charming villages and surprisingly abundant forests. The good trails are old but are still heavily used as mule paths. They lead through fields, and over forested hills and mountain ridges that invite one to indulge in the spectacular views of the Annapurna massif.
Baidam on the Phewa Tal lake is the true center of Pokhara�s tourism activities. The region achieved fame for its mild climate, its lakes and beautiful mountain scenery. Machhapuchhare, 6997 m, a mountain known for its shape as a fishtail, exudes a particularly strong magical effect on locals and travelers alike.
