Situated amongst lush terraces and jungle, about ten kilometers south Pokhara, Nirmal Pokhari is best known for its production of oranges.
With an elevation of around 1,000m, it is part of the Kaski District. To the east is the Village Development Committee (VDC) of Kristi and to the west, the Shivalaya VDC.
Compared to some other villages Nirmal Pokhari is less developed, making it a good choice for visitors seeking an escape to experience day-to-day farming and community life in Nepal without the distractions of busy tourist activities. An established volunteering program also exists for visitors to teach local children.
