Kunming has formally established the sister city relationship with Pokhara City of Nepal, according to a municipal meeting on Wednesday.

In December of 2010, a 6-person delegation of Kunming visited Pokhara City and signed an agreement to establish friendly city relationship with the city.

To this day, Kunming has already established friendly city relationship with 15 cities around the world.

Pokhara City is located roughly 200 km west of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal. It is a place of remarkable natural beauty.

A local website in Nepal said that if Kathmandu is the cultural hub of Nepal, Pokhara is its center of adventure. This enchanting city has several beautiful lakes and offers stunning panoramic views of Himalayan peaks.

The city is also part of a once vibrant trade route extending between India and Tibet. (Editor: Ryan Li)
