The lake is absolutely beautiful. You can see the Annapurna mountains in the background and there's great cafe's and restaurants around. Perfect for taking kids along as there's a walkway along the lakeside so kids can run along safely.

When i was back from Annapurna base camp trek i stayed Pokhara 2 nights. During my staying in Pokhara i like Phewa Lake where you can see shadow of himalaya. I loved to boating. If you feel tired and want to get some relaxed after Annapurna area trekking i suggest to stay in Phewa lake and you feel fresh.

I do like the lake with the boats and the walking trail along the lake. It's just over commercialized for our taste. The garbage seams a problem almost everywhere in Nepal. Pokhara itself is very clean compare to rest of Nepal cities. So why they can not keep there best attractions clean? Maybe someone can answer that.

I loved this lake and stayed in a hotel overlooking it. It's colours changed from misty grey mornings, to blue skies and snowy peaks during the day, to wonderful sunsets in the evening. It's so peaceful to walk along, with chilled-out cafes en route, and boats to hire to row across the lake. A stunning setting.
