Pokhara is the second largest city of Nepal. It is close to the Annapurna mountain range so is a popular destination for backpackers, trekkers, and other tourists. My girlfriend and I visited in November and fell in love with an area called Lakeside. We developed such a deep bond with the place that we decided to come back.
This blog series will be taking you through my time in Pokhara from April 9th-April 17th. This is the first entry in the series. I can’t promise this one will be all that interesting, as it is mainly the journey to Pokhara from Kathmandu covered here. However, I will be uploading more entries over the next week with all the adventures we get up to while we are here.
Saturday 9 April
7am. Boarding the coach. Sara and ‘friend’. We went with World Touch Travels for 600 rupees (approx 4 pounds) but all of them were the same really. Whatever you do, do not go with Greenline. The first time we went to Pokhara we paid around $90 in total for a return for both of us with them. We got ripped off big time.
More updates coming soon. I have just thrown this together for today’s blog post and am going to run out the door and see what’s waiting for me in find in Pokhara tonight. On Wednesday I will be posting a long update with everything we’ve gotten up to. Stay tuned!
