Not far from Phewa lake and can be accessed by care hire or motorbike. You can walk along the lake and enjoy the view of the lake and mountain range. There is a dam by the lake and you will see locals washing their laundry by it.

I had been to this lake couple of times and every time I visit here I find it very different. Calm and peaceful. In terms of facilities (restaurant and cafe), you won't find it delightful as compared to lakeside while boating at Fewa lake. It has its own uniqueness and features. It lacks place to sit and enjoy the view though.

One of the best place to hang out on Begnas lake. Deck by the lake, great grill fish with the stunning view. One can enjoy boating, swimming and sun basking. Typical stay no more words to describe. Will be there soon again

I have had mixed feelings, when i find myself being intimated. I do not like to mention what happened, may be if you like then you can view my past reviews about what did happen and who be responsible for. I wanted to stay on peace and in silence, so Begnas Lake was there for me. Being on the center of lake, viewing Himalayas, though ive seen best of them from Machhapuchre Base Camp, when i was on solo trip to ABC trek from renowned tour agency, but i ended with disappointment at very last moment. I don't know what went wrong when i was writing, i had taken picture of my past review to send to Mr. Ganga when i believe it was posted. Later came to know it was not successful and had to draft again....may be that's the reason, it got posted twice. I cannot express what that be like and i would even write the same thing 10 times if i have to, only the female can understand it..

Begnas Taal is a popular lake lying on the eastern side of Pokhara valley.
It takes about nearly 40 mins to go by vehicle to reach the lake. This Lake lies on the outskirts of Kaski, giving the visitors a lovely scenario of lake, hills and mountain ranges. The lustful green hills which surround the whole lake from four sides makes the environment an amazing place to visit. As you go to the lake, you will be surprised by the aura that gives you a pleasant feeling once you are there. This place is famous for its delicious fish and other items. The Lake is quite big compared to other lakes of Pokhara. Once you actually step there, you will surely go for boating as nothing is better for sightseeing than boats. There are several things which you can do there. You can go upto hill top restaurants and enjoy the serene view of the lake from the top. Not only the food, but the people residing there will give you a warm company once you are there. Here are the several to do and not to do things in the Lake lists.

To Do things
1. You can go for boating there to observe the natural environment.
2. You must definitely try the local cuisines as well as fish in the lake.
3. Make sure you have one guide if you want to explore the junlges there.

Not to do Lists
1. It is better to take one boat driver whenever you are boating because this is a vast lake.
2. As the lake is full of bio diversity inside, it is strictly prohibited to throw any litters there.
3. If you go for boating, make sure you know about the climate well. Monsoon and stormy days are considered risky.

One of the most beautiful lake in the beautiful city of Pokhara. I was there to explore this lake but I explored other one for free that means when you go there to explore this lake you will explore another one as well. And the begnas resort offers you a very comfortable stay there.

We had a wonderful time at Lake Begnas this trip. We took public transport there and really enjoyed a long walk around the lake. There were places to stay, lots of restaurants, boats to rent and it was a nice change of pace from the more tourist driven Lake Fewa. Next time we plan to stay overnight and see the sunrise over Lake Begnas.
To catch a bus from Lakeside, there are a couple of options. Either from Hallen Chowk or Barahi Temple ask to get off at Prithvi Chowk (15NR). Then head out of town and ask for a direct bus to Begnas. Another 15NR.

We took a cab from Pokhara here one day. Think it cost 400 rps each way. It is a beautiful lake with special views of the mountains. We only say one tourist the whole time we were here. It was all locals out on the boats or playing in the water. There are a few restaurants and bars here, so you can come out here for lunch or a chilled afternoon. Nice to get out of Pokhara and see more of the beauty of Nepal.
