Khaste Lake is a freshwater lake located in the Lekhnath municipality at Kharane phant of Nepal.[2] The lake is located in Ward No Lekhnath 3, 4 and 6.

It covers an area of 24.8030 hectares (61.290 acres) and the water area is 13.7370 hectares (33.945 acres). Since some years, Pisciculture has been conducted in this lake. The area, known as ‘Bird Wetland’ is best suited as a bird watching lake, as the Siberian, Indian and Afghani birds come here to protect themselves from the cold. This area is a potential Research centre for the birds of different species.[3]
