Kalipokhri. Kalipokhri means black lake, "Kali" meaning black and "Pokhri" meaning lake. With a ramschackle ensemble of huts and homestays, Kalipokhri is wild and bleak. We stayed at the best accommodation that was available in Kalipokhri, The Chewang Lodge.It was Kalipokhri where the clouds began to subside revealing a sky with an awing of stars, a full moon and fleece like clouds. The night was cold, but it was beautiful, almost fairy tale like.
