Our three day getaway to Pokhara, Nepal, was behind us. We had arrived back in Kathmandu via the eight hour bus ride through the mountains. We had limited time and money to see a couple more things in the city before we had to catch some sleep before our flight in the morning. We checked into our hostel and set out for Swayambhunath, also known as the Monkey Temple. After…

After our three day getaway to Pokhara, Nepal, we traveled back to Kathmandu for one final night in Nepal. The bus departed from Pokhara at 7 AM and lasted eight hours. This bus was much better than our bus from Kathmandu to Pokhara primarily because of the lack of people to fill the bus. The bus could hold around 50 people, but there was just five people that were along…

The past couple of weeks we have covered our journey from Kathmandu, Nepal to Pokhara. From the treacherous bus ride through the mountains from Kathmandu to Pokhara, to relaxing on Phewa Tal lake. From departing early in the morning on a day hike through the mountainous region and seeing the sunrise from atop Sarangkot Mountain, to paragliding from that same mountain down to the lake. There are a lot of…

Phewa Lake in Pokhara, Nepal

Phewa Tal Lake, Pokhara, Nepal

A serene moment in a canoe on a lake with the gorgeous scenery of the mountains in the background and Pokhara city in the foreground. There was no better way to spend a couple of hours shortly after finishing our paragliding from the top of Sarangkot mountain. Quite opposites on the spectrum of adventure as well. Just hours before we were jumping off a mountain and gliding down to the…

One Day Trek in Pokhara, Nepal

Australian Base Camp, Pokhara, Nepal

We have already written about our experience paragliding in Pokhara, Nepal, but on our three day visit to the lake-side city we got to do much more. The moment we arrived in the city, we saw the Annapurna mountain range towering over it. The rocky mountains with snow caps made the green mountains that surround the city look tiny in comparison. This was even more evident when we went paragliding,…
