Fewa Phewa Lake Tal Pokhara Nepal SailboatIf you’re looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of downtown Kathmandu, staying lakeside at Phewa Tal (aka Fewa Lake) in Pokhara Valley is the place to go.

The placid waters are perfect for a sunny afternoon of kayaking, boating or (on occasion during the Springtime winds) sailing.  But even if you’re not big into the water sports, walking along the paved path just enjoying the view or reading a book isn’t too bad of a recourse to opt out on either.  There are even some locals who offer camel back rides…believe it or not!

Either way, whether you’re visiting Pokhara to go whitewater rafting down the Kali Gandaki River, hangliding over the Himalayas, seeing Nepal’s Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave or taking in breathtaking views from the World Peace Pagoda, you must take some time to reflect on life while watching the sunset over the lake.  

Here is my photo essay from the sunset I enjoyed overlooking Phewa Tal in Pokhara Valley during my recent trip in Nepal.  Enjoy! 🙂
