About Phewa Lake (Fewa Tal)

Phewa Lake is the focal point of all tourist activities, often the hub where people start their Pokhara tours from. This over-visited-always-crowded area is a beauty in itself. With the beautiful backdrop of the snow white Machhapuchhre (fishtail) mountain, the stark greenery on the other side of the lake and colorful boats dispersed all around, it’s a view worth all the hassle.  The skies are clear and blue; the air is fresh, although the surrounding have been quite polluted with the increase of tourist in the recent years. The lake has a Vishnu temple situated right on the center of the 5km stretch, which is filled with local people on Saturdays.

On a clear morning you can see the mirror image of the Machhepuchhre (fishtail) mountain on the lake, which is a breathtaking sight. Boat rides take you to the Tal Barahi temple in the center or simply show you around the lake whichever option you choose. Personally, a boat ride in Phewa tal while in Pokhara is a must, it’s a completely different experience as you paddle in this beauty with the mountains surrounding you in every direction possible. Locals are more than happy to help you with their boats in case you can’t find one. The market stretched on the entrance of Phewa tal is popularly known as the lakeside and is the perfect destination for shopping, eating, hanging out or just following the peaceful trail.
