Pokhara, Nepal

An early start to catch the 06:30 bus to Pokhara.
We head across Kathmandu and into the valley. The road is of poor quality and is busy with traffic, but hugs the valley side and the views are outstanding as we descend down into the valley.
We stop for lunch, which is included in the bus ticket. The food is good and the restaurant is in a beautiful garden area. We get back on the road and soon get to Pokhara.
[G2:1655 class=g2image_float_left]I get a taxi to a recommended guest house, the Orient Youth Hostel, with is clean and quiet as it is away from the main bustle. I opt for the more expensive room with a great view of Fish Tail mountain.
I take a walk up and down the main strip, stopping for lemon tea, and to watch the boaters on the lake.
I am tempted to try some Kayaking whilst I am here, and will definitely be doing some walks, but not mighty multi-day hikes.
