Part 9 - Lumbini to Pokhara



Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers




The ride of 180kms from Lumbini to Pokhara was a very pleasant ride that we completed in a leisurely 8 hours revelling in the atmosphere.
Pokhara is a honeymooners’ paradise apart from being a base for quite a few treks in the Himalayan


region.  It is most famous for Mount Annapurna which is the tenth highest mountain in the world at 8,091 metres. If you are the real adventurous type, you can go for a trek to the Mount Annapurna Base Camp from Pokhara too.


Boating in the Pokhara lake is one of the most serene activities. You can row the boat to the centre 



and meditate sitting amidst the mountains. It is an amazing feeling.



Or take that flight by microlight aircraft to hover around Mount Annapurna and return!



The cuisine in Pokhara is to suit every possible palate and wallet. You have the Continental, Indian,



Italian (with pizzas baked in wood fried ovens) or the native Nepali food. If you wish to taste Nepali 


food visit the restaurants sporting ‘Thakali kitchen’ boards. There is free wifi available in all the restaurants that line the main street so a great place to hang out and chill.
