  • Majhi Kuna’ translates to ‘Fisherman’s Corner’ and it lies in the eastern region of Begnas, Pokhara. It is one of the hidden gems visited by comparatively less number of tourists which makes it even more tranquil. It is a pristine and peaceful area surrounded by hills perfect for bird watching, swimming, and watching the sunset, Majhi Kuna is perfect for recreation. The hiking trail leading to this area goes through trees and a small village settlement. View of the mountains, hills, ridges along with the lakes add to the beauty of this place.

During the boat ride we interact with the female boat driver - belonging to the indegenious ‘botey’ community and learn about their experiences. After about 4-5 hrs we reach Majhi Kuna, where from a tower we can see both the Begnas and Rupa lakes. Birds like Ducks, Pheasant-Tailed Jacana, Hoppie Grey Bellied Tesia, Common Pintail Snipe, Bulbuls etc. live around these lakes and people, from kids to adults, line up for fishing.
