Phewa Tal (Fewa Lake), Pokhara

4.5
#1 of 53 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.

  • Nice serene lake with great view of Himalayans. It is the icon of Pokhara and touristic center. There are many restaurants, shops, hotels, activities have been established by its side. Can be reached by car, bus, and small plane. Good place for relaxing, holiday, or just family moment.
  • When i was in Pokhara, i always think about Phewa Lake. The Lake is near with the hostel, hotel, bar, supermarket, restaurant, outdoor shop, etc. It's really nice to walking around the lakeside or you can rent a boat with your friends with affordable price. When the sky gets clearer, u can see the snowy mountain on the backside of the lake. The people around the lakeside are so friendly and welcome. can't wait to go back... :)
  • A boat ride here is a must when you're enjoying your stay at Pokhara. Pretty affordable and safe and calm. Boats can also be hired without driver on rent if you enjoying rowing yourself and can take your time to explore all the corners of this beautiful lake with good views all around.
  • 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.
  • One of the most beautiful lake of Nepal. Fewa Lake in Pokhara is the second largest lake in Nepal. It covers an area of about 4.43 sq. km and has an average depth of around 8.6 m. The lake is a major attraction to those who are drawn to water sports or families who simply love absorbing the beautiful scenery. The warm water of the lake is inviting and ideal for a trip on a little wooden boat. The boats can be rented along the shoreline o an hourly basis or even for an entire day.  Sailboats are also available but there isn’t enough wind. The Annapurna Range and the Dhaulagiri Range loom in a distance. On a perfectly calm day, the mountains are mirrored on the surface of the lake. Away from the shore, the water is clean and deep and the dense forest along the south side of the lake is rich in wildlife. The lake also holds religious importance.The holy Barahi temple is situated on an island in the lake.
