The peace of Pokhara

Pokhara after trek
There are actually road signs in Pokhara telling drivers not to use their horns. This is such the exception in Nepal.

Truly Pokhara is the most recommended site in Nepal and it and the Annapurna do earn that recommendation. It is friendly, clean, beautiful and accessible. Having said that, there are so very many places we’d recommend seeing in Nepal and we’d only just begun! Chitwan National Park, Nagarcot, NamoBuddha, Lumbini (Dave visited it on his field work), Patan Durbar Square, etc., etc., etc.

Robin and I finished our 5 day trek with an extraordinarily quiet morning in Pokhara, enjoying milk shakes and lattes respectively as we lingered over breakfast and then a pre-flight snack, writing post cards and reading books. We were topping up on the quiet before heading back to Kathmandu and the final hectic days of our stay in Nepal. We looked forward to catching up with Dave and hearing all about his travels with his research field work and also the planned social opportunities to say farewell to our Nepal friends and colleagues. But for the moment, we soaked up all the peace and quiet Pokhara provided.

What a grand week!
