Boating activities in Nepal
If the commercialism of Lakeside gets too much, just head out onto the calm waters of Phewa Tal. Colourful wooden Doongas are available for rent at several boat stations, including near the city bus stand and next to the Fewa Hotel. Rates start at Rs200 per hour with a boatman, or Rs140/Rs500 per hour/day if you row yourself. You can also rent plastic pedalos (Rs250 per hour) and miniature sailboats (Rs200 per hour). If you are boating alone near Damside, keep well away from the dam wall.
