Pokhara

Wednesday, July 4, 2007

Pokhara is the next popular city after Kathmandu in Nepal. It is just 200 kilometers away from Kathmandu city. The tourists who visit to Nepal will most often be going there. It lies in the western part of Nepal. Not even international tourists but national tourists from Nepal itself do go there for their vacation.

Pokhara is the gateway of trekking into most of the Himalayan ranges in Nepal. There are lots of beautiful places where one will find peace and serenity in Pokhara. The most famous includes the Fewa lake and David Fall with the picturesque Machhapuchhre Mountain reflecting over the lake also called as Fishtail Mountain in English. Other landmarks include Mahendra Cave, Mahendra Bridge where the Seti river can be seen so far downhill as just a line of white marking which is actually a big river. The Barahi temple is situated inside the Fewa lake, meaning there is a small island like exposure of the small hill near the edge of the Fewa lake where there is a beautiful template of Barahi, a Hindu goddess. Another temple of Bindhyabasini is also situated in a small island in the beautiful Rara Lake. We can find lots of Hindu devotees praying in these temples.

I always wonder what might be the specialty of Pokhara, then I end up having a long list of things we can view in Pokhara. It is worth making that list and no I am not providing that list here as I leave that to the people who wants to visit Pokhara. You should first be there to experience that majestic feeling inside you. You need not worry about the food and lodging once you reach there as there are lots of motels, hotels, restaurants and bars, and lodges around Pokhara. You will find more tourists than the locals there. The city is fully urbanized by the latest technologies available like internet service, telephone lines, satellite television channels, etc. which will make you feel like home and never make you out of contact from your actual homes. I am sure whoever visits Pokhara will have a lifetime experience and will remember those awesome moments for the rest of their lives.
