The people who are providing services to tourists in Pokhara Lakeside are so friendly. The prices for services and goods are fixed. No haggling and rip off intention among them. The boulevard are clean and wide with good lighting during the evenings and nights. Water smell is the smell of clean fresh Himalayan water.

The lakeside area offers breathtaking views of the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri mountain ranges. There are plenty of shops and stalls in the area where visitors can buy souvenirs, handicrafts, clothing, jewelry, and other local products.

Lakeside is a very chill place to recover from adventures in Nepal. It's a great place to shop for souvenirs as it has much less pressure than Thamel. Sitting by the Lake watching life go by is great therapy. The choice of food outlets is vast

Currently, Sep-Oct2022, vehicle traffic in Pokhara Lakeside is once again loud, crowded, fast and dangerous, particularly the motorcycles.
In 2018, a Walking Street was established on Lakeside Road from Hallan Chowk to the other main boat landing and bus stop (between the bus stops where local busses are not permitted). That was a long time coming and long overdue. It greatly added to the attractiveness and pleasantness for tourists and businesses alike. (see my review in 2018).
Now, post - Covid, the walking street has disappeared and the traffic is a horrible insane mess, especially in the evening. Please! Restore some sanity!
Also, speed bumps are needed near crosswalks, particularly in North Pokhara near Hallan Chowk. There is not a single speed bump until Bakunde, a couple of kilometers further, where there is hardly any traffic!
I have been coming to Nepal for over 30 years. I now normally come here twice a year as a tourist, usually for a month or more each time. But this trip was an unenjoyable and intolerable experience because of the traffic volume and noise! I could hardly wait to take my flight out of the craziness.

Horrible experience in Pokhra Nepal. If you go to Nepal, Pls don't walk during the night.

I have visited Nepal on 14th august 22 and My brother has been attacked by locals during night at 1am and he lost his vision as well. They are horrible.

Normally, I guess there'd be great views of the mountains, but we were there in May so we just saw clouds. There are boats to rent and many restaurants.

You can not swim in the lake or at least as the water is dirty it is not recommend. You can hire a boat and go to the bottom of Peaceful Pagoda and climb up or aimlessly paddle around and on the clear day, usually in the morning, enjoy Himalaya mountain range.. The range is also visible from the lake bank. The lake is lined with many restaurant or just simple small stalls. Every evening you can watch sunset celebration.

The lakeside has a number of fancy restaurants lined up along the main street, so there will be no shortage of food options. The quality of everything here is magnitudes higher than Kathmandu, even the little convenience stores had some good produce and snacks. You can take a small boat to the island temple which will give you a nice view.
