Unless you’re headed someplace; I’d give this place a miss. Not much to do except stare at a (comparatively) empty lake. Also, there are no good restaurants nearby. Therefore, once you finish boating - you’ll need to head back to lakeside for some good choices...More

Nice lake near Pokhara with some restaurants nearby and the possibility for boat trips. The lake can easyly be reached with a public bus from lakeside Pokhara in about an hour busride. The scenery arround the lake is beautiful and invites for little walks.

Lovely lake about 3hr. 30mins out side of Pokhara. Spent the day chillin' on the water, eating fresh grilled fish, drinking cold beers and enjoying the feeling of air in my lungs after Tilicho Lake and Annapurna. Very quiet, hardly any tourists..mainly locals.

Nice, peaceful, clean lake to swim in and chill out at. There's a little pier too if you're interested in diving. The lake is really deep so diving is safe. Very relaxing place and great for a big group too. Only it's a bit hard...More

Want to be away from the noise, smells and sounds of Peshwa lake area, begnas is the place to go. Good road to reach . If time permits proceed to Rupa , but can give it a miss.

Very nice lake worth a short visit. There’s not much to do around other than walking near the shore. But the lake is definitely beautiful. Also it’s tourists free!

Comparatively within surrounded area of Pokhara valley Begnas remains in its class and location. Little off from main pokhara city Begnas lake is in Lekhnath municipality. But the lake is yet to explored a lot. Beautiful view and convincingly located begnas has its own identity.

If you've already been to Phewa Lake, you must know about its crowd and noise. Begnas will absolutely offer you a quality peaceful time. Mostly locals visit this place.
