Boating is one of the many ways to relax, relieve stress and enjoy the nature around the river or the lakes. The numerous lakes and rivers in Nepal make boating one of the major attractions among the tourists as well as the locals. Be it floating slowly on the lake or playing against the rapids of the river, boating in Nepal is an incredible experience. The various lakes and rivers offer boating as an adventurous and recreational experience in many parts of Nepal. Most famous boating destination in Nepal is the Phewa Lake in Pokhara. The island like structure in the middle of the lake housing the temple of Taal Barahi is one of the attractions here. Also, the clear view of the blue sky and the magnificent Machhapuchre (Fishtail Mountain) on the pristine waters of the Phewa Lake make it one of the favorite boating destinations. The boats could be hired for an hour or a whole day and one can choose to row her/himself or let the boatman do it. Three types of boats are available in Phewa Lake: sailboats, rowboats and pedal-driven boats.
