One of Nepal's top tourist destinations is Pokhara. With effect today (March 17, 2024) , the Nepali government has formally named it the nation's center of tourism.

"Pokhara, a popular tourist destination known for its unique blend of natural beauty and cultural adventure options, has been officially declared Nepal's tourism capital," said Dhanraj Acharya, head of the Pokhara Metropolitan Municipality, in a speech during the ceremony. This accreditation will greatly accelerate the expansion of tourism in Nepal and the Gandaki area.
