Pokhara to Tansen, Nepal
Pictures of, Images, Picture
Gretchen flying down the hill from Bandipur. What took 3 hours to climb up
took about 15 minutes to descend.
Some very serious announcement painted on our hotel wall. Whatever the rule
might have been, we did our best to follow it.
Packing up to leave on a sunny morning.
Tim looking studly by the lake in Pokhara.
On the climb to Tansen, Nepal. The green-ish tree you see on the road below is
where we took a break an hour before.
The road between Lumbini and Pokhara is a scenic and quiet road in Nepal and
perfect for bicycle touring - if you like long climbs.
We met this fun French guy who rode this 1,200cc BMW motorcycle in the mountains.
He cycled all the way from France. He had plans of flying his bike via cargo
plane to Bangkok.
Beware of falling rocks, a very real danger on many roads.
Just after Tim took this picture, we were nearly caught in a sudden downpour and
had to wait it out at a tiny shop.
The Siddhartha highway: the road that just keeps going up and up and up.
Around each bend you see another long sweeping view of the
climb to come.
It doesn't look so bad here, but trust me, that road behind Gretchen is one heck
of a climb.
