Pokhara is the headquarters of Gandaki. It belongs to Kaski district. It is located at an altitude of 1400 meters above sea level. This is a beautiful place. Many tourists come here to visit.
Location of Pokhara
Pokhara falls in the central hilly region. The scenery here is breathtaking. To the north, there is a beautiful view of Machhapuchhre, Annapurna and other mountains.
Tourists coming for trekking at Annapurna Base Camp have to go through Dhampus. Dhampus is a beautiful place. People also come there to see the fresh air and the beautiful greenery.
There is also a phewa tal in Pokhara. In the middle of it is the Taal Barahi temple. A small boat is used to reach the Taal Barahi temple. The water of Fewa Taal goes through a dam and the leaves fall into a waterfall. We have to buy a ticket to see this waterfall.
The leaf is also called the David fruit. Gupteswar Cave is on the right side of the gate. There are many types of temples in this cave. For example: Krishna temple, Gai temple, Durga temple, etc. There is also a well. The water from that well came from the leaves.
Another fun place is the Peace Stupa. This stupa is at the top of the hill. This stupa is the place where most of the Buddhists come to pray.
