Buddha Air is planning the first international flight from Pokhara, the second most popular destination in the country after Kathmandu Valley.

Under its upcoming ‘Nepal Tourism Year 2011‘ project, the Nepal Tourism Board (NTB) has envisioned promotion of Pokhara, a picturesque city 200 km west of Kathmandu, as a hot destination for tourism in adventure, pilgrimage and air-sports.

Pokhara is the ultimate destination for aerial adventures hosting Paragliding, Ultra-light aircraft, and future possibility of SkydivingPokhara has great potential to become an adventure tourism hotspot, as major trekking routes including Annapurna Circuit and Muktinath start from here. Besides Seti and Kali Gandaki rivers are popular for rafting and kayaking.

Hotspots in Pokhara such as lakeside, caves, Devi’s Fall, International Mountain Museum, and World Peace Pagoda also are also popular among travelers. Every year, Pokhara attracts over 1,25,000 tourists with maximum arrivals from the UK, Japan, China and India.
