Pokhara Lakeside to Kathmandu Valley

Pokhara is Nepal’s second largest city and a very popular departure point for trekking in the Himalaya’s. Most of these pix are of shop windows in Pokhara, also the view from the Moondance Restaurant right next to our hotel and a nice tree shrine…

Pokhara has a section aptly called “Lakeside” and there were lots of boats, some going out to a little island that has another World Peace Pagoda. The road from Pokhara to Kathmandu is busier than from Lumbini to Pokhara. Again, many of these are from our car. Not only did we spend much of the drive along a river, we crossed many…

The fronts of the trucks are interesting too, but a bit harder to study. Some of these pix are about art, some about slogans or phrases, some about bamboo…

More road pix…

Our driver Raju was with us for four nights and five days all the way from the India border to Kathmandu. He was excellent, safe, efficient, and and all around nice guy. This pic is in the driveway of Miraval, the Shrestha’s house and our final destination…



Study Questions:

  1. Research tourism in Nepal, or trekking in the Himalayas, or river rafting, mountain climbing, or other adventure sports. What did you discover?
  2. Research Pokhara and/or Kathmandu. What are the highlights of these cities? For what are they famous? What will you see/do when you visit?
  3. Research trucking in India & Nepal and/or research traffic fatalities in Asia. Now make sure you wear a seatbelt!
