Swimming Pool, Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge, Pokhara, Himalayas, Nepal

Pokhara

Travellers arrive in Pokhara to the most spectacular setting – the perfect pyramid of Mt Machhapuchhare which looms high over Pokhara Town and its stunning reflection in the calm waters of Tal Lake.

Pokhara is a gateway to the Himalayas, the endpoint for the famous Annapurna circuit trek and the start point for many other treks into the Annapurna range.

For some, it represents the last chance to stock up before heading for the mountains; however, if you aren’t a dedicated trekker, there’s plenty here for you too. Pokhara has numerous museums and there are some fascinating caves, waterfalls and Tibetan villages in the surrounding hills.

Kate Hitchen

My travels were first inspired by my love of the UK, which I take as much pleasure in exploring as countries far and wide. For me, travel is all about the adventure, the people I meet and the food I sample along the way.
