Day 2 – Nepal Day 1 – flight to Nepal

Flight to Nepal VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL Still trying to adjust to HK time, so I woke up at 3:30am.  I was staying in my uncle’s place  in Sheng Shui.  It was very breezy and cool at night even without air conditioning.  Everyone must have sensed I really like dim sum that majority of…

Pokhara to Nagarkot VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL There was not much activity that day, we spent 6 hours on the car for long long drive from Pokhara, passed Kathmandu then up to the top highest viewing point of Nagarkok. At one of the quick stop where there was a small market, Kazi bought a…

Day 13 – Nepal Day 12 – Trekking back to Pokhara

Last Day of Baby Trek VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL Before the longest descend trek back to Pokhara, we spent the morning taking a lot of very pretty pictures up in the secret viewing point.

Day 12 – Nepal Day 11 – Trekking Sarangkok

Hiked/bused to Sarangkok VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL We couldn’t wait to get out of Chandrakok.  We skipped breakfast and started the day immediately after eating a couple biscuits.   The first part of the downhill walk was very easy, then we hopped on a local bus because Kazi believed we probably couldn’t handle walking all…

Day 11 – Nepal Day 10 – Trekking to Chandrakok

After two easy days of trekking, I was completely unprepared for our first day of downhill trek.  Thinking back, we really should have taken Kazi’s advice and relaxed more in the beautiful Aust. Camp.  It was just so much fun just sitting around and watching the gorgeous view and bugging Betty while she was sketching….

Day 9 – Nepal Day 8 – Trekking to Pothana

The first night was quite cold.  It was 10 to 12C which is not “that” cold by Canadian standard because that’s double digit temperature.  Even for whimpy Vancouverite ;-)  But when there is no central heat, that is already pretty cold.  I felt lucky that I was able to use the rented sleeping bag because…

Chitwan to Pokhara VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL Woke up early for morning bird watch.  But I don’t recall seeing anything very remarkable that I still remember.  What I remember the most of that morning was the lengthy breakfast because we were spending a lot of effort filling in the feedback sheet.  I have never…

Day 5 – Nepal Day 4 – Chitwan Elephant Day

Chitwan Elephant Day- VIEW SLIDE SHOW DOWNLOAD ALL We had canoe ride first thing in the morning.  The canoe was very narrow.  According to our guide Santa, it was craved out from one single tree trunk.  So it should be very solid and safe ;-) Yet the feeling of sitting on was the exact opposite. …

Day 4 – Nepal Day 3 – Kathmandu to Chitwan

Today started slightly earlier than the day before because we wanted to avoid the busy traffic within Kathmandu city.  Yet, I thought the streets were already  jammed & chaotic.  The air quality within Kathmandu was really bad.  We later realized how dirty it was when we saw visibly dark (almost black) water as we washed…

Day 3 – Nepal Day 2 – Relaxing Kathmandu

Woke up by the sound of pigeon and later music from the Yoga practice place closed to our hotel.  I warped my comfy scarf around, then put on my jacket and sat and watched the still dark sky gradually turning to light blue that morning.   It was peaceful and quiet.  What a way to start…
