One of Nepal’s top tourist destinations, Pokhara, is the starting point for treks into the spellbinding Annapurna Mountain Range. And once you are done conquering the mountain peaks, the town offers plenty of opportunities to relax those tired muscles, with quiet rides on brightly painted boats on the placid Lake Phewa and easy walks to see soul-stirring sunrises just some of the things that will make you fall in love with Pokhara.
Kathmandu, Nepal’s vibrant capital, is an exciting mix of cultural and nature-based activities. Explore the city’s many UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the Kathmandu Durbar Square, the Pashupatinath Temple, the Boudanath Stupa, and Lumbini, the birthplace of Lord Buddha - to name a few. And to get an adrenaline rush, you could always go white water rafting or bungee jump, head first, into the 160 deep Bhote Kosi River gorge.
