Phewa Lake, Pokhara

phewa lake pokhara

We took advantage of the laid back sleepy lake side town of Pokhara by finally slowing down and relaxing. Along with renting a motorbike and going to different viewpoints of the Himalayas, we also rented a boat to row around Phewa Lake. For a cheap 370 Nepalese Rupees or about $3.70 USD you can rent a boat for an hour and enjoy the views around Pokhara and Phewa Lake. What started as a relaxing getaway quickly turned into one of our favorite past times; a photo shoot, taking advantage of the glass like water and surrounding mountains. It was a nice break from the rushing around we had been doing and what was inevitably waiting for us in India.

    Ahhh love Phewa lake! Pokhara is such a random little place, but being on the lake surrounded by mountains and water was just stunning! Did you guys hike up to the peace stupa on the other side of the mountain? xoxo Katie

    Wow, how gorgeous! I miss living near water, so this was a good tonic! Gald you enjoyed your time there!

  • Bonnie Rose

    Love spending time out on the water. It became my favourite thing about our area here in Bath, England. We now have our own kayaks to go up the canals and rivers and we too love taking photos there. Love that you were able to just enjoy the picturesque views and now you have some cherished photos to remember that moment for a lifetime! Love it. x

    Chelsea! When I first saw that picture on your FB I thought “oh man, Jeremy and Chelsea already went to Lake Ten Killer in Oklahoma”. Then, I saw the writing inside the boat that was in a foreign language. ha!

    These are really pretty pictures. Glad you had a relaxing time.
