Pokhara is Nepal’s most frequented tourist destination and there are several compelling reasons behind this fact. The valley of Pokhara is blessed with immense natural beauty and resources. It hosts 7 lakes of different sizes, reason why Pokhara is also known as the 'City of Lakes.'
Pokhara is also a central hub for trekkers, especially for those aiming for destinations within Annapurna Sanctuary. Fascinating panoramic vista of the Annapurna Range and other peaks including Machhapuchhre add to the natural beauty of Pokhara.
Pokhara is also popular among domestic and inbound pilgrims, especially Hindus and Buddhists. Adventure tourism and sports available in the valley is equally contributing to the flow of tourists into the valley.
