Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), Pokhara

4.5
#1 of 41 in Nature in Nepal
Visit Nepal’s second largest lake, Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), and enjoy a peaceful walk along its scenic banks. The lake is a semi-natural body of water, fed by streams but regulated by a dam, and features an island with a Hindu temple. Hike or cycle around the lake, surrounded by verdant forest on one side, with the touristy lakeside area on its eastern bank. Rent a vividly painted boat and set off on the lake’s calm water, which reflects the towering Annapurna mountain range.

  • The Lake is the central attraction of the town. If you live on the Lake side, it is not bad. Along the shores of many shops and restoranjaikov. Several marinas on the lake where you can rent a boat and go. To do this it is necessary. Island in the middle of the Lake with a temple, on the other side of the trail to the mortar world. Shrewd boatmen proposing trips across the Lake at dawn to see the stunning panorama of snowy mountains. It's not cheap, but certainly very nicely. Only have to choose the weather. Our arrival in the morning was fog and walking would only disappoint, well that was abandoned.

  • Phewa lake is one of the big lakes in Nepal. This Lake is elongated from West to East and covers large area of Pokhara city. The interesting part of Phewa lake is that, it has a glorious beautiful temple of goddess in the middle of the lake. Many people just come and take a ride to visit the deity. Beautiful exciting boating experience. People take a random walk along side the lake and due to this reason, especially in the evening, the lake side area is very crowded. There are lots of pub, restaurants and bars along side the lake and it is such a wonderful place to enjoy the evening.
  • Lake is beautiful plus mountains clear view gives more feel. It clean and many hotels restaurants are located near phewa lake. But more work need to done on the cleanliness.
  • One of the best place to visit. You can enjoy the view of lake in peaceful environment.
  • One of the best and wonderful place to visit in Nepal situated in Pokhara. Boating gives a freshness and joyful moment which becomes your unforgetfull moment here.
  • Very impressive & large. You will ever remember its memory, will not be able to erase the moment you have passed here. Good looking natural scenery all around. Water never dried up. A journey by boat is available upon hourly rental basis

Where to stay in Pokhara

The country's second largest city has long been on the radar of international travelers, so you won't be disappointed with the number of places to stay in town. Most people look no further than the lakeside area, and if you're only in town for a short while, it really makes sense to stay by the water. You'll find standard larger hotels and pristine boutiques with attractive gardens and views, as well as a number of guesthouses run by families and aimed at backpackers. If you're going to be in town for a while longer, take a look at the rental properties available, either by the lake or in some of the less-frequented residential districts.
