Autumn travel is for colour, culture and smaller crowds – as these six destinations prove. When Britain’s summertime ebbs away to autumn,
The peaceful town of Pokhara lies on the shores on Nepal’s second largest lake, Phewa Tal, and is surrounded by the majestic snow-capped Annapurna mountain range. Pokhara once belonged to the independent Kingdom of Kaski, and on the surrounding hilltops stand the ruins of ancient stone fortresses. This lush setting is backed by some of the world’s highest peaks: Dhaulagiri, the Annapurna massif, Manaslu, Himalchuli, and most spectacular of all, the soaring spire of Machhapuchare, the ‘Fishtail’. All of this, combined with a gentle climate make Pokhara an ideal place to simply relax, take walks in the surrounding hills, or engage in the more energetic pursuits of trekking or white-water rafting which this region of Nepal is famous for.
