The climate of Pokhara (Nepal)
Pokhara is located on the border with Tibet in central Nepal. This medium-sized city is situated on Lake Phewa and offers a spectacular view of the Anapurna mountain range. The city attracts many tourists. The surrounding scenery is beautiful and offers many possibilities for walking and cycling. The Anapurna mountain range is very beautiful, when you travel higher you have a beautiful view of the Himalayas. Besides the beautiful scenery the region offers many cultural attractions. Beautiful Nepal temples and Stupas, the influence of Tibetan refugees who settled here after the Chinese invasion give the region a unique atmosphere.
Pokhara has a tropical savannah climate; precipitation figures are far below 60 millimeters per month during several months, especially winter and spring are very dry. During the summer there is a long period with heavy rainfall. Because the surrounding mountains rapidly rise to great heights Pokhara gets more rain than other parts of the region. This is because the air is forced up the mountains, cools down rapidly causing rain clouds to form. Especially summers are very wet.
