Nepal - Getting to know Pokhara
Picture a cobalt blue lake, with a gaggle of colourful rowing boats on the shore. Add in the soaring snow-capped peaks of the Annapurna range behind, their reflections gleaming on the lake's mirror-still surface. And there you have it - picture-postcard Pokhara. Nepal's most popular resort town is in the most gorgeous of settings. Besides its picturesque location, Pokhara is the main hub for trekking in Nepal, offering everything from a multi-day hike to a gentle afternoon stroll. There are all sorts of other activities available too, including rafting, mountain biking and paragliding.
