Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Phewa Lake, Phewa Tal or Fewa Lake is a freshwater lake in Nepal located in the south of the Pokhara Valley that includes Pokhara city; parts of Sarangkot and Kaskikot. The lake is stream-fed but a dam regulates the water reserve, therefore, the lake is classified as semi-natural freshwater lake.[1] It is the second largest lake in Nepal, the largest in Gandaki Zone followed by Begnas Lake[2]. Phewa lake is located at an altitude of 742 m (2,434 ft) it covers an area of about 5.23 km2 (2.0 sq mi)[3] with an average depth of about 8.6 m (28 ft) with maximum water depth is 24 m (79 ft).[4] Maximum water capacity of the lake is approximately 4,600,000 cubic metres (3,700 acre·ft).[5] The Annapurna range on the north is only about 28 km (linear distance) away[6] from the lake, and the lake is famous for the reflection of mount Machhapuchhre and other mountain peaks of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges on its surface.[7] The Barahi Temple is situated on an island in the lake.[8]
