Nepal is famous for its lakes. There are number of lakes and tanks of glacial and tectonic origin in Nepal. Mountain lakes like Rara lake, Phoksundo lake, Phewa lake etc., are majestic in extent and beauty.
Rara in Mugu district of western Nepal is the countrys largest lake. Phewa at Pokhara is another equally famous lake. Phoksundo in Dolpa Distric is yet another big lake but is less well known than Phewa Lake due to its difficult approach. Rupatal and Begnastal (Pokhara), Gaduwaltal (Chitwan), Satyavatilal (Palpa), Khaptadtal (Doti), Barhakunetal (Dang), Surma Sarobar (Bajhang) and Tilichotal (Manang) are some of Nepals other well-known lakes.
