Next we rode to Sarangkot from Mahendra caves. This definitely is not a place to be missed if you are traveling to Pokhara. At an altitude of 1600 meter, this village gives a striking view of Himalayan range and the lakes at the same time. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sarankot The roads were nice until a point where due to construction we landed up riding in a patch full of mud and stones.I am sure once this construction is over, up till the summit, you will have smooth roads to enjoy. Pokhara is a place for para gliding. At a cost of 4500 Nepali rupees a decent para gliding can be done.

Kathmandu is a city stuck in a time warp, it is a city with a mind of its own and an impenetrable one at that. With its medieval temples, ethnic groups, convoluted lanes, noisy bazaars and an overwhelming number of hotels, this place is several things at once. Travellers just can't get enough of the intoxicating cocktail that is Kathmandu and the locals are well aware of this fact. It is timeless and often akin to an exotic fairytale and a visit is therefore imperative.

The well preserved ancient Newar town, known for its artistic excellence, splendid courtyard and palaces, pottery and weaving industries and rich customs and culture, is a ‘living heritage’ in itself. The literal translation of ‘Bhaktapur’ i.e. “place of devotees” is well justified by its magnificent temples, artwork, festivals and religious celebrations. It was enlisted as UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. The place is like an open air museum, best for aimless wandering and exploration. The ‘culture gem’ of Nepal, Bhaktapur is extremely picturesque and inspiring. So simply put on your best walking shoes and get ready to have a good peek into the famous Newar culture and tradition.
