Nepal Day 3 - Pokhara

18th March 2014 (Tue), second day in Pokhara.
Starting the day with sunrise viewing at the lodge's rooftop, while the moon still hasn't set.


Here comes the sun.

But due to bad weather condition, the Annapurna Mountain Range still cannot be seen.

Breakfast with nice view!

Lower view of the lodge while walking down the hill to the town.

White flowers along the path.


Spot a big tree.

Keep going...

Old people chilling.

After walking for around an hour, we finally reach the town.

Going into the Gupteshwor Mahadev Cave.

A small waterfall channelled from Devi's fall, going through the cave,

Inside the cave.

Here we are, the Devi's Fall.

A sculpture of the Annapurna.

It is something like an underground waterfall.

Going for a boat trip at Phewa Lake after our lunch. But it seems like the weather was bad. I was terrified by the trip actually. Haha...

It is the World Peace Pagoda!

To save money, I decided to took a one way boat trip to the opposite of the lakeside, where we can hike back to our lodge. This time, Carmen was terrified because our hiking journey follow with the lightning storm. During the way, it started to drizzle. But...

There it is! The mountain range!
It appears during our half way hiking! Finally!
I can see Carmen's tears of happiness.
It's totally worth the adventurous hike isn't it? Haha...

Another shot of the mountain.

A closer look.

We reached the lodge and this is the view from it.

Mountain range with Buddhist flag.

And the sun slowly sets...

An amazing night view.
And this is the view I saw the meteor with my naked eye for the first time in my life.

Ending the night with this magnificent photo (while waiting for Jiun Tat to reach Pokhara).
Just open the photo in new tab and enlarge it to see the details of the photo captured.
