South Asia’s Proud Nepal, undoubtedly nature lovers favorite destination. But this mountainous land is not only famous for the Mighty Himalayas, there are much more to explore here being a nature lover. If you’re in Nepal then you shouldn’t miss visiting the beauty of Nepal in Pokhara.
I’ve loved being in Pokhara, Nepal a lot, famous for many attractive spots. This city is lovely, calm and quiet like me :-), locals are friendly and helpful and so no problem to move around alone. The whole Nepal was in a festive mood and so Pokhara, they were celebrating their main festival, Tihar (Dipawali), a festival of colors and lights. From Hotel Grand Holiday, where I’ve stayed, some tourist spots are close to visit and Fewa Lake (Phewa Lake or Phewa Tal) is one of them. And this is the must-visit spot for all tourists and nature lovers.
On Thursday, October 23, 2014, I was lucky enough to visit some cool spots from early morning to evening. In Part One, you came to know about Annapurna Mountain at Sarangkot, Pokhara. Now I’ll take you to Begnas Lake, Fewa Lake and Davis Falls in Pokhara.
Some Must-Visit Beauty of Nepal in Pokhara
Who doesn’t like boating in a fresh and deep blue water lake? I love Boat and Boating, it took me always in a different world where I found myself the happiest one. There are eight lakes in Pokhara and among those, Begnas and Fewa are the famous ones. And this is the second largest lake after Fewa lake. It took me 40 mins to reach at Begnas lake from the hotel. Here you can move around or go for boating. I’ve gone for share basis boating with other tourists, if you don’t know swimming (I don’t know), no problem they will support you with a life jacket. Cut the ticket and enjoy boating here.
Oh, what a beauty!! I’m on a boat under the clear blue sky and clouds where snowy peaks of the Himalayan too visible (were a dream to me). Sorry, I’ll not mind if you lost yourself there 🙂

One of the main attractions in Pokhara city and just 10 minutes walking distance from the Hotel Grand Holiday. Can you imagine? Just before sunset, you are in Fewa Lake, enjoying the tranquility and the abundant beauty of nature. Yeah, I was exactly at that time and found myself once again the happiest one. Here you cannot go for share basis boating. Check out the hanging list of Boating (price and timings) before cutting the ticket. Here ticket price is more than the Begnas Lake. But you can find many options. You can row a boat by yourself if you know that or spend time by swimming.
There is one small island here where the Tal Barahi Temple is located, one of the serene place. You may only go for boating to visit that island. I took a boat for one hour where no one else except me and the boatwoman (first time I saw and really loved and enjoyed her company with beauty around). Boating in a Fewa Lake will be always one of my favorite trips among all.

The underground waterfall, Davis Falls is interesting because of the natural tunnel from where the water travels. One of the popular and favorite attractive spot for tourists and locals. It’s got a tragic story about one Swiss tourist after whose name this fall is known as Davis. But better to visit during the rainy season to enjoy the deep flows of water.

Here all photos captured by me (©nafisa_habib) with my Lumia720.
- Oct – Nov (during Autumn) is the best season to visit beautiful lakes in Pokhara.
- There are many hotels and resorts, villas nearby all lakes.
- If you are planning for luxury travels in Begnas Lake, then directly go to Begnas Lake Resort.
In my next blog will come back more about Kathmandu and Pokhara. So Stay Tuned.
