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.

The ride to Kathmandu was a short and smooth affair. We stopped for lunch at small joint in Khandichaur and enjoyed local fish meals served like thalis. Entering Kathmandu via Bhaktapur brought back congested roads and slow-stuck traffic bringing the city blues back again. Kathmandu is densely crowded and still lives in the aftermath of the horrendous earthquakes of 2015. With the town covered in dust and smog throughout, every face on street has a filter mask on. By evening we reached Hotel Manaslu (a traditional Nepalese hospitality experience) in Lazimpat.

Also known as Gorakhshpur, this is a town on the banks of the beautiful Rapti River. This is in the eastern part of the state of Uttar Pradesh. It is situated on the Nepal Border and is on the eastern side of the state capital of Lucknow. This place is also known for the Gorakhnath Temple or the Gorakhnath Math dedicated to Lord Shiva and thus is a Hindu worship place. The Buddhists also find importance here as Lord Buddha attained Parinirvana here and also breathed his last in Kushinagar which is near Gorakhpur. The great Saint Kabir, the poet is buried in Maghar, near Gorakhpur as well.
