Pokhara Tourist Map and Attractions
Pokhara tourism mainly focuses on viewing snow-capped mountains, swimming lakes, and outdoor sports. The scenery of Pokhara is centered on a lake and a mountain, with sparkling clear waters of Fewa Lake and snow-capped Fishtail Peak.
Fewa Lake can be described as the tourist soul of Pokhara. On the narrow southeast side of the lake, it is a good place for boating. Bypassing the lake to the southwest of the entire lake, you can also enjoy the reflection of the entire Fishtail Peak, which is magnificent and spectacular.
Paragliders and gliders are the classic items of Pokhara tourism. Both are aerial flying projects, which can overlook the entire Pokhara scenery from the air. Fewa Lake, the old city, and the distant snow-capped mountains can be perfectly viewed from the air.
