Top 10 Best Cities In Nepal

The Top Ten
1 Pokhara

Kathmandu is more well known, and historically more attractive, with the malla temples and whatnot. But it's lost its appeal. It's crowded, dirty, and you can't see the mountains that much anymore. Butwal, Chitwan, Dharan is way too hot, Terai cities like Birgunj are just worse. 30C is hot weather in pokhara and 35C+ never happens. It is right in front of Macchapuchharre (mt fishtail) and within 50 aerial miles of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu, which are 10th, 8th, and 7th tallest mountains in the WORLD. And yet it never drops below -2C. Absolutely everything about this city is so appealing
