Very beautiful but not as expectedly popular lake in pokhara is Rupa. Having different access route from lekhnath municipality this lake has many potential to be as touristic destination in Pokhara.

Located in far east from city center, the lake is beautiful. The water is blue and natural. I appreciate the human activities in this lake is still less. It should be in the list of must go place in Pokhara.

It's a peaceful area with not too much built up around it. Water level was low when I was there, so it wasn't as beautiful as it might have been in another season.
