Pokhara Lakeside

Hrishikesh Baruah
We reached Pokhara by 4 pm. Got down at Zero Point/Chowk to take a cab further till Lakeside; we had booked a hostel there. We were aghast to find our bags covered in dust and grease/oil. Cab charges were NPR 250 till Paila Hostel (wouldn’t recommend this hostel). Rest of the evening was spent taking a stroll around the busy lakeside markets and relaxing with some local beer and momos. We enjoy a boating session on the Phewa Lake tomorrow morning before heading back to Kathmandu in evening, and to our respective places the day after.The World Treks in NepalThey say, "Heaven is a Myth, Nepal is Real". These last 2 weeks have been absolute insane. Trekking in Nepal was an altogether unique and filling experience, magic. The dense yet magnetic forests of oak and rhododendrons that fills you with happiness even in solitude, the ever humble, smiling Nepalese people who are ever so helping, and of course those jagged, huge mountains that we came to witness. Trekking on our own was not only something different that we did but also something that gave us a lot of satisfaction and content. With a plethora of trekking routes it’s needless to say I’ll be back here in this Himalayan Kingdom for more such terrains…
