Pokhara is a city in central Nepal, on the shores of Phewa Lake at an altitude of around 827 meters above sea level. It is located approximately 200 kilometers west of the capital Kathmandu, and is the second largest city in the country.

The city, whose name in Nepali means "lake", was forged in the seventeenth century as a trade route between Tibet and India.

The city of Pokhara is located in the northwest corner of the Pokhara valley. In this region the mountains rise drastically, and less than 50 kilometers there is an elevation from 1,000 meters to more than 7,500 meters of altitude.

Three of the ten highest mountains in the world, Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu, are located less than 48 kilometers (in a straight line) from the city, thus offering a landscape very close to the Himalayas.
Pokhara is a fairly modern city, however, it is part of the old Newari buildings and temples of medieval times such as the Barahi temple, Bindhyabasini, Bhadrakali, Sitaldevi, Gita Mandir or Bhimsen.
The city promotes two high points to see the city and the surrounding landscape;

- The World Peace Pagoda built in 1996 on the other side of the southern shore of Lake Phewa, located on top of a hill. To get to this particular stupa built by Buddhist monks you have to walk about three kilometers, either following the marked path, or going out on the road, from where you will reach the David Falls, an abrupt fall of water from the Phewa lake

- The population of Sarangkot which is a mountain village located at 1,600 m from where you have an impressive panoramic view of the Himalayas; In a northerly direction, you can see the Dhawalagiri, to the south you can see the city of Pokhara, as well as its lake in the northwest area of ​​the city. The road is not very good but it is passable. The views are extraordinary, nowhere else on the planet is it possible to contemplate with such a short distance such a number of vertiginous mountains, which makes the town the main starting point of the best trekking routes in the country

LAKE PHEWA "the magical lake of the Himalayas"

It is the second largest lake in Nepal, with an extension of 5.23 square kilometers and a maximum depth of 24 meters. It is known for the impressive reflections that originate in its fresh waters, on which it is possible to see the iconic and sacred Mount Machhapuchhre (it is forbidden to tread its summit), as well as the Dhaulagiri and the Annapurna, located just over 25 kilometers from distance.

Right in the center of the lake, on an island rises the sacred temple of Bahari, to which every Saturday hundreds of faithful go on pilgrimage to sacrifice birds in honor of the newar goddess Ajima.

It is a dream place that moves us from zero to eight thousand kilometers in a single glance
