Motorbiking in Pokhara, Nepal [
Pokhara is a big city near the big annapurna rockys of 8000m (in the north of pokhara). The city is only on 800m, an it is about 25-30C in october and always dry. The tourist area is near the nice pewa lake. In the north and south of pewa lake are mountains with about 1500m. From the small village in the north mountain, which is named Sarangkot, many paragliders start there and landing near the lake.

You can rent a scoter or a enduro. But the motorbikes are very different to thailand, but „something“ is the same.
The have only tis „Hartfort“ 150ccm Enduros, about 800-1000R (8-10EU) per day to rent.
Many things on this bike remember me on my old Yamaha 80ccm from 1985
Scoters are from 50ccm to 250ccm. We had 50ccm 2-stroke scoters.

The road goes everytime near the lake
Buffalos take a bath in the fresh water, about 25C warm
Then we have to cross this small river, but it is not easy with a scoter, ha ha
They have a busline to the last village.
End of the street, in a small village

Pokhara Airport when we departure from Jomsom
Bus to Kathmandu
There a some different bus companys. We take the ac-bus from Baba, a good choice because the trip can be very dusty.
The ticket was 1250R (12,50EU) per person. The bus need 7-8Std (incl. 45 stop) to Kathmandu.
In Kathmandu we don’t stay in the tourist area Thamel. The Haus Namaste is a little bite outside, about 15min to Thamel walking, but a nice place
