The roads around the Phewa Tal lake are flat so I rent a mountain bike and spend most of the day riding north along the lake’s edge. Away from the bustle of the main street things are very quiet. It’s a hot day and I love riding through the small settlements and a village or two. I pass a few locals doing their business. I have a quick chat with some of the kids.
I also head south, but without roadsides I don’t go too far. I return the bike, have tea and do some writing.
I think I will stay here for a few more days and then head back to Kathmandu. I’m hoping to see Mount Everest, further east of Kathmandu.
