Pokhara Sub-Metropolitan City (Nepali: à¤ªà¥‹à¤–à¤°à¤¾ à¤‰à¤ªà¤®à¤¹à¤¾à¤¨à¤—à¤°à¤ªà¤¾à¤²à¤¿à¤•à¤¾ PokharÄ Upa-MahÄnagarpÄlikÄ) is the second largest city of Nepal with approximately 300,000 inhabitants and is situated about 200 km west of the capital Kathmandu. It serves as the headquarters of Kaski District, Gandaki Zone and the Western Development Region. Pokhara is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Nepal. Three out of the ten highest mountains in the world: Dhaulagiri, Annapurna I and Manaslu or Lamjung himal are situated within 30 miles (linear distance) of the city so that the northern skyline of the city offers a very close view of the Himalayas. Due to its proximity to the Annapurna mountain range the city is also a base for trekkers undertaking the Annapurna Circuit through the ACAP region of the Annapurna ranges in the Himalayas.
