Phewa Lake is the jewel of Pokhara and the second largest lake in Nepal, after Rara Lake. On a clear day you can see the snowy peaks of Annapurna, Machapuchare and Hiunchuli reflected off the water. The views are stunning, particularly from the World Peace Pagoda, that you can reach via a small creek on the southern bank of the lake.
I have very special memories of hours spent on the lake, fishing on a small boat hoping to catch my evening meal and wandering along its lush, green banks . If you're looking for a relaxing holiday , this is place to be!
