Pohkara My First Morning!!

I remember the beauty Pokhara!! I arrived at night after a long journey that started in Lucknow , India. I found a small guest house which is the area called Dam Side. It is on the other side of the lake. So when I awoke early that first morning It was absolutely AWESOME! With the majestic Machupuchere Mountain as a backdrop and not a cloud in the sky. I couldn't wait to get out and start exploring. I spent a few days just doing day hikes around Pokhara and renting a bike and riding out to some of the neighboring villages. It was great! The People are very friendly too. I hope to return someday!!

    What magnificent photos! It never ceases to amaze me how people (everywhere, not just here) don't value trees much - what a sad place our planet would be without them. Namaste is a wonderful word : )

    A fantastic page on this old chapter in your travel history! What an awesome view of the mountains in the background! It is too bad that tree-cutting is such a world-wide problem, and tourists only make it worse.

    Poon Hill was one of my best memories. Lately I've been having flashbacks of that magical land. Certain scents and sounds always whisk me back there. I hope you find your way back to Asia this year, Scott. There is so much still left to explore.........
