This Pokhara City Tour will give you a knowledge about Pokhara, a city of lakes, mountains and natural beauty. It is just a little over 120 miles (198 km) west of Kathmandu, and stretches along the shore of a tranquil lake with bobbing paddle boats. From the lake, and possibly even from your hotel bed, a clear view of the snow-capped mountains can be observed.It also boasts a booming adventure sports industry; it is arguably the best paragliding venue on the globe and is surrounded by white-water rivers. It’s the gateway to the world-famous treks in and around the Annapurna range and beyond.
Davi’s Falls, also known locally as Patale Chhango, which means underworld waterfall. The water flows from the Phewa Lake and travels 1600 feet (500 m) underground into the Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave. A lingam, an abstract representation of the Hindu god, Shiva, is preserved in the cave. It is said to have certain healing powers and be in the same condition since it was first discovered. The cave is divided into two sections. One part of the cave is 130 feet (40 m) in length with natural tunnels and the lingam. The second part begins after this shrine and leads to the falls.
Fewa Lake is surrounded by a combination of monkey-filled forests and the high white peaks of the mountains. Phewa lake is also used for commercial fishing. You will have about an hour boat ride on the lake, where you will see the Barahi temple, which is located on an island in the lake, accessible only by boats.

It is a museum about mountaineering and its history, and offers examples of the people living in the Himalayas and descriptions of the 14 highest peaks and their most famous expeditions.
