Take a boat out on the lake - it is a superb experience.

To start planning your holiday to Fishtail Lodge


A small hotel in a peaceful location on a peninsula at the side of Phewa Tal Lake, just a few minutes walk from Pokhara. With superb views over the Annapurna Range, it is ideal for a pre or post trek base, offering clean and comfortable rooms.

The Fishtail Lodge is located on the edge of the Phewa Tal Lake and just 5kms away from the airport. It cannot be accessed by road and so upon arrival guests are transported there either by its shuttle floats or boats. The Lodge offers 60 comfortable rooms with views either out on to the immaculate gardens or towards the lake and Annapurna range.

There is one restaurant at the hotel, renowned for its food and well positioned for fantastic views of the mountains. There is a cosy bar and fireplace which is the perfect place to relax and unwind after a day exploring the local area. Some fantastic hiking in the surrounding landscape, fishing in the many rivers and lakes which are home to almost 120 varieties of fish, horse riding and birdwatching are all in easy reach. You can also take boating trips to explore the lake, go paragliding, play a round of golf or take to the skies in an ultra light aircraft.

Profits generated by Fish Tail Lodge are donated to the Princess Jayanti Memorial Trust which provides free cardiac care to underprivileged Nepalese people and conducts various programmes to raise public awareness regarding the causes of heart diseases in Nepal.

Daniel Smith (Staff)

The Fishtail has the best location in Pokhara right on the lake and offering spectacular views over the Annapurna Range. Its rooms though are a little tired, and the hotel is in need of modernisation. If you are happy for something a little simple, but with bags of charm, then it could be the ideal choice.


  • Gurung Village Walk

    Enjoy a scenic walk to a lovely local Gurung village, a four hour walk away from Tiger Mountain Pokhara Lodge, the starting point for this full day walk.
