  • Sad to see it is a bit polluted with plastic bottles and scum. Still a nice place to visit away from the the city center. Anyways nice place to visit once a life. The reflection of mountain in the lakes make everyone awesome and thik its like heaven
  • The place is really cool to visit for nature lover but the problem is that their is no proper way to go and the way is going thought a jungle with no proper way. May be it can be kind of adventurous trip.
  • Great place with so much peaceful and serene environment.. Boating here is less costly and more enjoyable than in fewa..
  • Begnas Lake is about a 30 minute drive from Pokhara. It goes toward the same highway to Kathmandu then turns off. Begnas is beautiful and undeveloped and you are able to rent a paddle boat or walk around the lake and enjoy the nature. The best thing about the lake is the view of Annapurna III and the moutain's reflection in the lake.
  • Beautiful place to spend awesome time with friends and family .
