A sleepy lakeside city in the heart of the Himalaya, Pokhara is both the gateway and endpoint for those trekking the Annapurna Circuit. Hikers setting off can find guides and supplies here, and weary ones return to relax and recuperate. But, Nepal’s second-largest city is more than just a way station for long-distance trekkers. You can spend a few days here discovering the city’s Lakeside district and museums, as well as a nearby Tibetan settlement and the serene Lake Phewa.
