It takes only 15-20 minutes by taxi from Pokhara. The best idea - to hire a jeep and make round trip. In the left side of the lake (if you see from the point of arriving) - the most picturesque place - you can go downhill there and come to the very water. Here - the most quite, nice place, almost an another planet.
On the right side of the lake - cottages for tourists (very costly and very basic) with restaurant (good food). And from here you can see another lake, adjacent to Begnas.

Short local busride from Pokhara
Beautiful lake but unfortunately the clouds prevented the reflections of the Himalaya

Quite nice, different vibe from Phewa lake, but nothing amazing. Very popular with Nepali people, especially couple. Not well served for eating places

This lake is about 10 km from the city, it takes around 40 minutes to get there by taxi. It is a serene, peaceful lake, with boats to hire like in Phewa lake.

Beautiful views and quieter than fewa lake. It is about half an hour by taxi from Lakeside and you will have to get a taxi that is happy to wait for you and take you back - our taxi driver invited himself along on the boat ride, but at least he wasn't going to leave without us!
