Photos of the Trip
Pokhara is situated in the northwestern corner of the Pokhara Valley, which is a widening of the Seti Gandaki valley. The Seti River and its tributaries have dug impressive canyons into the valley floor, which are only visible from higher viewpoints or from the air. To the east of Pokhara is the municipality of Lekhnath, another town in the valley.
In no other place do mountains rise so quickly. In this area, within 30 km, the elevation rises from 1,000 m to over 7,500 m. The Dhaulagiri, Annapurna and Manaslu ranges, each with peaks over 8,000 m, can be seen from Pokhara and there is a lake named Phewa Tal (Tal means lake in the Nepali language), three caves (Mahendra, Bat and Gupteswor) and an impressive falls (Patale Chhango or Devi’s Fall) where the water from the Phewa Lake thunders into a hole and disappears. Due to this sharp rise in altitude the area of Pokhara has one of the highest precipitation rates of the country (over 4,000 mm/year). Even within the city there is a noticeable difference in the amount of rain between the south of the city by the lake and the north at the foot of the mountains.
The climate is sub-tropical but due to the elevation the temperatures are moderate: the summer temperatures average between 25–35 °C, in winter around 5–15 °C.
In the south the city borders on Phewa lake (4.4 km² at an elevation of about 800 m above sea level), in the north at an elevation of around 1,000 m the outskirts of the city touch the base of the Annapurna mountain range. From the southern fringes of the city 3 eight-thousanders (Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Manaslu) and, in the middle of the Annapurna range, the Machapuchare (Nepali language: Machhapucchare: (Fishtail) with close to 7,000 m can be seen. This mountain dominates the northern horizon of the city and its name derives from its twin peaks, not visible from the south.
SummarySpend a fortnight in Shangri-La as you stalk some of the biggest carp specimens in Asia – and possibly the world. Staying in tranquil surroundings on the shores of Lake Phewa in Pokhara, you are perfectly positioned to catch massive carp, either from the bank or from one of our canoe-boats. The fish in this lake have yet to be challenged by the skilled carp angler, but it is only a matter of time before a 50kg + common carp is landed, and the world record is smashed. With many carp species resident in the lake, some of which have already been unofficially recorded at over 60kg, and catfish of over 100kg, we are confident that Phewa Tal will soon arrive on the world carp fishing map. Make way France!
Trip DescriptionIn a country where huge mountains dominate the skyline, imagine our surprise to find out that Carp in Phewa Tal grow as big as a man. The locals have been pulling specimen fish out of this lake for hundreds of years, and we often see our neighbours carting 20/30kg+ Bigheads to the fish market in town.
Staying at Frontiers Adventures’ idyllic retreat ‘Maya Devi’ on the shores of the lake, you have absolute freedom to fish – night and day – from a variety of spectacular swims. A boat is also available for your use throughout your stay, and food and drink is in plentiful supply just a few metres from the shore. Maya Devi is situated 2km to the north of Pokhara, in quiet and peaceful surroundings. At night, all you can hear are cicadas buzzing and the fish rising – a perfect backdrop to an adventure fishing holiday. And the real bonus is that the restaurant is within ear-shot of your bite alarm!
The following species have been recorded in Phewa Tal – Mirror, Common, Grass, Big Head, Nasice and Silver Carp, and as if that wasn’t enough, the mighty Mahseer was introduced about 50 years ago – known locally as the ‘King of the Mountains’ – and is in plentiful supply.
There is another lake in the Pokhara valley which reputedly has even larger fish – Begnas Tal. You are at liberty to fish there whenever you want; we will take you to the best places to fish, and introduce you to a few locals to help you decide on the best rig and bait. If you are feeling particularly adventurous, we can also arrange a 6-10 day expedition to western Nepal, rafting down the Karnali in pursuit of the Mahseer. Fishing for these powerful and notorious game fish is best in the spring months of February to April, not least because the river is at a low level, giving you a fighting chance of landing each take!
Your accommodation is in your private luxury chalet, built in traditional Gurung style, with master bedroom upstairs leading to a private balcony overlooking the lake, downstairs lounge area, and bathroom with shower, washbasin and lavatory.
It is difficult to describe the tranquillity and beauty of where you will be staying, but you are unlikely to come across a more spectacular location for chasing a world class fish.
