Pokhara (900m) is a beautiful valley with a panoramic view of Annapurna and Machapuchare (shape of fish tail) in the north and Dhaulagiri in the west and, Lamjung himal and Manaslu in the east. Machapuchare is just 28 km from your hotel! Pokhara has several lakes, among them Phewa Tal is a major attraction. Most of the hotels, lodges and eating places are located on the eastern edge of the lake. It is one of the favorite tourist destination next to Kathmandu. Pokhara is linked by 200 km road with Kathmandu. The road branch out at Mugling to go to Chitwan for safari adventure. Trishuli river that runs parallel to the road provides white water rafting. It is also linked with Bhairawa and Lumbini, birth place of Gautama Buddha, by Siddhartha Rajmargh (highway). You can also fly to Manang and Bhairawa direct from Pokhara.
Travel duration by surface from Kathmandu to Pokhara is about 6 hour and flight duration is 30 minutes. Beside jungle safari and rafting, tour to Pokhara provides one of the best extension tour. You may join a packaged conducted tour or take public bus operated for tourist only. There are several hotels with good quality. If you have more than 5 days to spare to look around in Nepal you should consider overnight visit to Pokahra. A combination of overnight tour with your visit to Kathmandu would be suitable. Flight to and from Pokhara would give you more time to spend looking around and relaxing under the shadow of the Machapuchare peak in the Phewa lake. Pokhara is also considered as an overnight stay point in the beginning or at the end of trek in Annapurna region. It is also an add-on tour to Jungle safari in Chitwan and river rafting in Trishuli river.
