Our 1-hour Phewa Lake rowboat ride included a short stop at a small island that is the home to the Barahi Temple. This charming 2-tiered pagoda-style Hindu temple dates to the 18th century. It is used for worship by both Hindus and Buddhists.

You can go to temple by boat from shore. It takes around 10 min by boat. We spent around 20 min after darshan to have nice views of lakes, mountains and forests area.

You have to take a boat ride in Phewa Tal to go here, and it's really worthwhile. Doesn't take up much of your time, but gives you a sense of peace no matter which religion you follow (or don't!)

I got on one of the "roof' boats balanced on a couple of canoes with about 10 other people. The sign said it was 100NPR per person (for foreigners; Nepalis get a discount) for a 4-person boat, but that's not the way they do it....More
