Pokhara


Pictures of Pokhara taken some time ago. Pokhara, beautiful as always and less polluted than Kathmandu valley. Places to see in Pokhara include Fewa Lake, Sarangkot, World Peace Pagoda, Bat Cave, Begnas Lake (the largest lake in Pokhara), Devi's Fall among several other wonderful places.

Devis Fall
Devis Fall (also known as Devi's Fall or David's Fall or Devin's Fall or "Patale Chhango") is an attractive waterfall in Pokhara that runs through the "Gupteshowr Mahadev Cave". The water can rise quite high on rainy seasons.




Bat Cave
Considered to be the most difficult cave to pass through, Bat Cave (or "Chamero Gufa") is so called due to the huge number of bats present inside the cave.




Fewa Lake
The most popular of the lakes in Pokhara, Fewa Lake (also known as Phewa Lake or Fewataal) also holds the temple in the middle of the lake named "TaalBarahi". On a clear day, the Annapurna range and Machapuchre are visible from this lake. One can also climb to the World Peace Pagoda after a short boating in Fewa Lake. The place around Fewa lake is popularly known as Lake Side where there are lots of hotels or guest house to stay in. The Lakeside is the most attractive destination for tourists in Pokhara.
