Pokhara is arguably the most beautiful city in Nepal. This city of lakes is a mirror for the
mighty Himalayas in the north. Its laid-back charm and the colorful nightlife, along with the
view of Annapurna (8091m) and Machhapuchhre (6997m) over the skyline makes Pokhara
ideal destinations for tourists. On the Pokhara Valley Tour, you will visit not only the main
