Phewa lake

View from east shore of Phewa lake before sunset
One of Pokhara's many attractions is the beautiful Phewa lake. If the sky is clear, reflection of the Annapurna range on the lake offers a spectacular view from the south shore. Many postcards and souvenirs have this picture too. Alternatively, one can watch sunset from the west shore.

You can hire a boat to get yourself to the small island in the middle of the lake. There is a nice little shrine there. Or you can actually go all the way across the lake. There is a large Buddhist temple on top of a hill on the other side. The place where they tell you to dock your boat, there is a little restaurant. The lunch served over there is very good.
