      Plezier & fun dag in Pokhara

      April 16 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

      Vandaag eindelijk zonder wekker opgestaan en bij het Kailash resort heerlijk ontbeten. Daarna stukje gewandeld naar Mountain Museum, daar ons onder gedompeld in alles wat de bergen te maken heeft en ook zijn uitdagingen oplevert. Of het nou om klimmen gaat of in de gebieden wonen, erg interessant. Daarna nog even wat geshopt en verder relaxed de dag door gebracht. Dus even weinig foto's etc. 🤞Read more

    • Day 9

      Sightseeing in Pokhara

      March 5, 2020 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 16 °C

      Heute Vormittag waren wir ohne Tobi, der ein wenig erkältet ist, bei dem sehr kurzen Programm.

      Zunächst waren wir (ganz alleine, weit und breit kein anderer Touri zu sehen) im Bergmuseum, dann an einem Wasserfall und der Höhle mit Schrein die zum Wasserdall führt.

      Das Highlight war die Friedenspagode, oder vielmehr der Abstieg von dieser durch den Wald und mit Bootsfahrt über den See.

      Nachmittags gings für mich nochmal ins Gym währen Tobi und Papa sich ausgeruht haben.

      Abends haben wir im Roadhouse Café nochmal westlich gegessen bevor wir die nächsten Tage vielleicht nur noch Linsensuppe mit Brot bekommen (Dal Bath).

    • Day 20

      20. Museum

      June 8, 2023 in Nepal ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

      Another really sunny and hot day . We started the day by walking down the river front slowly before grabbing a taxi to the museum . It was really funny as all the taxi drivers were quoting very high prices at first, so we just walked on . Magically they halved their prices and started fighting over who would.take us .
      We arrived at the museum about 15 mins later , the gardens to the museum were really pretty , with lots of botanical trees surrounding us and fish ponds .
      The museum was huge, with lots of old mountaineering equipment on show and lots of information about all 14 peaks above 8000 m .
      When we entered , we were advised to watch a short video to educate us on the people, culture and mountains within the kumbu region. The video was supposed to be about 20 mins long , but the projector overheated about half way through- we enjoyed what we saw 🤣.
      The museum also showcased indigenous habitants of the mountain regions of Nepal.
      There was a section on the endangered animal species in Nepal, with some very amusing taxidermy on display. Of course this section included the yeti, which is thought to live in the mountains . They look like very tall gorillas with pointy heads. Mountaineers are thought to have seen yeti footprints in the snow whilst out hiking - but there are lots of theories surrounding its existence.
      Afterwards , we walked around the grounds of the museum and had a cold drink in the shade . We headed back to lakeside for a bite to eat and a quick freshen up at our hotel .
      We want to kayak on the fewa lake tomorrow morning , so we headed out a short while after to compare prices as there are just so many boat rental companies . We found a place that offers sit on top kayaks for a very cheap price 😀.
      In the evening, we sorted out our accommodation for the rest of our stay in Nepal (until Tuesday) and booked a hotel for our first few days in Thailand.
