Surrounded by a tier of green mountain wall, in the Kathmandu valley, Kathmandu is the largest city and capital of Nepal. It is a city of great historic, artistic and cultural interest dotted with many shrines, temples, palace squares, charming old bazaars and ageless sculptures. Its heart is represented by the Kathmandu Durbar Square with palaces and temples, including the current incarnation of the Kasthamandap or "Wooden house" that gives the city its name. This is believed to be one of the oldest wooden buildings in the world - dating from around 1000 AD and it is the most popular UNESCO World Heritage Site in Nepal. The city is the starting point for numerous adventures such as trekking, rafting, jungle adventures, and more extreme sports in the rest of the country, including the breathtaking Himalaya Mountains.
Located in the middle of Pokhara valley on the banks of the Seti River, Pokhara is the center of adventure of Nepal - the perfect starting place for hikers and trekkers. The serenity of Phewa Lake and the magnificence of the summit of Machhapuchhre (6,977 m) rising behind it create an ambience of peace and magic. The valley surrounding Pokhara is home to thick forests, gushing rivers, emerald lakes, and of course, the world famous views of the Himalaya. The most interesting part of the town is the old centre in the north of the city (purano bazar) where many old shops in the Newari style can be found. Temples worth visiting are Bindhyabasini temple and Bhimsen temple. The best viewpoint of Pokhara is Sarangkot (1600 m )and Thulakot (in Lekhnath a part of famous Royal Trek from where four lakes Phewa, Begnas, Khaste and Dipang and whole annapurna range is seen) to the west of the city.
