Annapurna Himal Off The Beaten Path: 2 reviews and 2 photos
Pokhara is a beautiful town situated on the shores of Phewa Lake. The tourist area lies at the shores of the lake. It is full of shops, restaurants, and hotels, which makes it a convenient place to stay in town. We stayed at Giri guesthouse, ran by a kind man with the same name. We got a large room at the second story that had a large window with dazzling views of Machhapuchhare mountain peak standing tall at 6,997 meters above sea level (M.A.S.L.). It was our first glimpse of this mountain peak that is seen at various times along the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary treks. We got the room just in time to catch sunset and since we had such a good view from the room all we needed to do is relax and let it unfold in front of us. The unique red hue of the sun enclosed upon the snowy mountains and the many clouds of the sky as the day gave way to the evening stars. We had a long day so we decided to splurge and go out to a fine Italian dinner at the Cafe Concerto. It has the best pizzas in the Indian Sub-continent!
