For the love of nightlife in Nepal

Pokhara is a dream destination for people who love nightlife. Paired with the beautiful landscape, this place is going to take your breathe away . . I stayed in Pokhara for three days and still couldn't get enough of the place. The streets are super busy and full of life. The streets are full of lively restaurants and dance bars . Start your day by watching the sunrise from Sarangkot, and if you're lucky enough to get a clear sky, you'll be able to see the Himalayan Range and also The Mount Everest. You can also go for paragliding there. Do visit Phewa Lake. The lake is surrounded by mountains and it looks amazingly beautiful in the evening . Take a stroll down the main street and you'll be amazed to see the variety of restaurants with lively ambience. I went to Koyla The lounge and it was an overwhelming experience. Good food and live music - simply the best combination. Also, pay a visit to the peace pagoda. The stupa situated on the mountains is for the peace lovers. You get a view of the whole city from there. On the way, take a stop at the Peace of mind cafe which offers authentic coffee and great view. Overall, it was a really nice experience. If I were to sum up my stay in Pokhara, I'd say, "Beautiful place, Amazing landscapes, lively culture, good food, good mood".

Pokhara Overview

The city of Pokhara is located 200 km from the capital city of Nepal, Kathmandu. It takes about 5 hours to reach Pokhara from Kathmandu. The city is situated at a height of 827 metres above sea level. It is called the adventure capital of Nepal because of the presence of many trekking opportunities in the area.

Pokhara is surrounded by the snow capped Himalayan Ranges. The local people of Pokhara are called Pokhralis and Nepali is the local language spoken. It is an import centre of various foreign goods which are distributed to other neighbouring districts.

The city has a population of about 200,000 people and is the third largest city of the country, Kathmandu and Biratnagar being the number one and number two of the country. The headquarters of the Kaski District, the Western Development Region and the Gandaki Zone are located here.

The Seti River flows through the valley and has developed many canyons in the area. It is basically a quiet town with trekking as the major tourist attraction apart from fishing in the lake of the region. However, of late, rapid development has started taking place in Pokhara and pollution has been on the rise in the city.

Among the attractions of the city, the most popular is the Phewa Lake. It is a picnic spot and there are boating opportunities in the lake. The Annapurna Range that surrounds the city is also a major tourist attraction.

Other places to visit in the area include the Mahendra Cave, Davis Fall, Bhimsen Temple, Bindhya Basini Temple and the Gurkha Museum. The Gurkha Museum is dedicated to the Gurkha regiment which is known for its bravery and courage.

There is so much to see in Pokhara.
