After over 3 weeks in-and-out of the (former?) hippy enclave of Lakefront, Pokhara on lake Fewa, I’m finally moving on.
Within 30 kilometres (19 miles), the elevation rises from 1,000 to 7,500 metres (3,300 to 24,600 feet).
My guest house was up high with good vistas.
Pokhara, like Kathmandu, is usually hazy with poor mountain views. But we got one very clear day.
Machapuchare (Fishtail) is my favourite mountain.
Colourful row boats are emblematic of the city.
Fishing is popular with locals and visitors from the subcontinent.
There’s not all that much to do in Pokhara. Most spend their time relaxing meal-to-meal.
My go-to Himalayan dinner is called a Sizzler, for obvious reasons.
