Pokhara is the second-largest city in Nepal, located in the Annapurna Mountain range on the Pweha Lake. Three of the ten highest mountains in the world are located within 30 miles of the city.

Historically, Pokhara was a major stopping point on the trading route between China and India, though the date of its founding is unknown. 

Today, Pokhara is known for its beautiful mountain views, crowded and busy streets, boating, tourism, natural scenery, waterfront, and culture.
