Nepal Day #11 & #12 – Nagarkot, Kathmandu & Home

November 18, 2018 0

The alarm went off well before 6 am. We got up. Opened the curtains. We were greeted with… ….fuck all! Just fog, smog or mist – you can never tell. It was effectively a ‘white-out’. Yep, we had added another day, night, travel and hotel onto our trip, to see sweet FA. Himalaya’s my arse!…

Nepal Day #10 – Kathmandu & Nagarkot

November 17, 2018 1

Well, this was a long but very good day. After breakfast, we were met by our guide for another tour of a different part of Kathmandu – Bhaktapur What a pleasure this was. His English was excellent & he was very interesting. We saw many temples and historic buildings. This area was famous for having…

Nepal Day #9 – Himalayas & Pokhara

November 16, 2018 0

The morning view of the Himalayas was another blinder. Better than the 1st day I would say. This was the last part of our ‘Trek’ & was potentially even shorter than the already ‘joke’ short treks up to now. Needless to say, we had a late start to try & eek it all out a…

Today’s activity was a guided tour of Pokhara & it’s surroundings. We were met after breakfast by the guide & his driver. He was fucking awful. We did all the things in the area so that was good but he gave no insight or information at all He was shit. ….in fact, more annoyingly all…

Nepal Day #5 – Travel to Pokhara

November 12, 2018 0

An early start to the bus station. A quick pop to the toilet led me to this delight straight out of a Nepalese ‘Trainspotting‘. This was about a 6-hour journey. Usual stuff, the guy ‘running’ the bus had about 3 mobile phones & kept counting seats all the time. We made numerous stop on the way…
