  • Try boating... Its fun. It is a freshwater lake in Nepal spread up over 5 Km. this is a very famous tourist attraction in Pokhara. Water sports can be done here. So many boats in lake give you postcard view. Tal Barahi Temple, located at the center of Phewa Lake, is the most important religious monument of Pokhara. You can go there through the boat. The street beside this lake is very lively in the night and it gives you the vibe of any major street from big cities. A must visit in Pokhara.
