  • Another beautiful lake just like Phewa Lake, but not so touristy. It is situated just outskirt of Pokhara city. Check it out if have time on hand. The view is amazing with Himalayas in its background. There is also another lake near to it which can be visited same time with this lake. Few hours for overall visit will be enough.
  • On a clear sky, the view is very good. Try to go to Sundari Dara for a better view of the lake and the horizon
  • Breathaking. The lake is amazing. Temperature was beautiful too. Definitely recommend to cross it or just wander around in one of the little boats. Also, there are really nice restaurants to have a bite that have a straight view of the lake. A must in Pokhara
  • Its a best place to visit at evening or early morning. From here we can have the mountain view and have the fun of boating for hours.
  • Nice and beautiful Lake, people who love silent and peace would definitely like hang around.
