    TEA HOUSE NEAR DEORALI PASS

    I was on my way from Chomring to Poon Hill and near the Deorali pass i stopped in a teashop where they informed me there was a shortcut, a path that led down from the side of the teahouse. As it was raining i decided to take this route, but after the path branched off at several locations i was halted by a fast flowing torrent so i had to turn back. By this time i was covered in leeches and just barely found my way back to the teahouse. Suggest that you don't try this route without a guide as it is very easy to get lost.

    The lake of Pokhara

    Pokhara is a beautiful town situated on the shores of Phewa Lake. The tourist area lies at the shores of the lake. It is full of shops, restaurants, and hotels, which makes it a convenient place to stay in town. We stayed at Giri guesthouse, ran by a kind man with the same name. We got a large room at the second story that had a large window with dazzling views of Machhapuchhare mountain peak standing tall at 6,997 meters above sea level (M.A.S.L.). It was our first glimpse of this mountain peak that is seen at various times along the Annapurna Circuit and Sanctuary treks. We got the room just in time to catch sunset and since we had such a good view from the room all we needed to do is relax and let it unfold in front of us. The unique red hue of the sun enclosed upon the snowy mountains and the many clouds of the sky as the day gave way to the evening stars. We had a long day so we decided to splurge and go out to a fine Italian dinner at the Cafe Concerto. It has the best pizzas in the Indian Sub-continent!
