The beauty of Pokhara with the mountains so in the vicinity is enhanced by its lovely lakes, which have their source in the glacial region of the Annapurna range of the Himalayas. Situated 200 KM west of Kathmandu at an altitude of 827 meter from the sea-level, for the mountain viewers Pokhara offers a magnificent view of Dhaulagiri, Machhapuchchhre (Fishtail), five peaks of Annapurna and others. Pokhara is the only place in the world to provide such a dramatic views in a sub-tropical setting. Machhapuchchhre, for example, is only 28 km from Phewa Lake and not a single mountain range intervenes between the two.
