Pokhara Lake Tour

Devi's fall, Cave and ice cream....

sunny 26 °C

As Saturday was holidays and we are leaving tomorrow for Khatmandu I decided to go with the family to Pokhara Lakeside and go on the boats…
We all set off on motorbikes, Teo and Hayden with Bishwa’s older brother, Bishwa’s younger brother with his wife and me with Bishwa older brother’s wife and child.

We first went by my laundry place to wash the clothes and went round to the West side of the lake where we had not gone before. Unfortunately they did not have any peddle boats so we went back to where we had gone before and took a giant peddle boat. We set off to do the tour of the island on which a famous temple is in the middle of the lake.


You need to circle by clockwise a temple and not anti closkwise so we nearly crashed with some other boats on the way… Once we passed the temple we went along the side of the lake and picked up some Javanese nuts to eat and also had some crisps and coca cola…. We watched the Para gliders above the lake and saw a few land… and then we headed for the shore… I then offered to go for ice cream in a nice Italian place we had gone to before with the kids… very nice place with low seats and some great homemade ice cream…

Then they offered to show us the waterfalls and the cave so we went off again… The waterfalls have been named after a tourist who set off to explore the cave and never made it out… They are amazing even though they are not so big but the strata are very visible and impressive. What I thought was funny is that you have to pay for the entrance and then you can see further up some ladies doing their washing in the river that feeds the waterfall!!!

The next visist is the cave which host a temple and a cow place?!... You go down some steps into the mouth of the cave and the humidity strikes you and you suddenly cannot breathe so easily… the walls are all dripping wet and the lighting is scare… The cow temple is just in front of you .. strange enough there is a statue of a cow next to a little temple… and you can put some money and make a prayer…
The cave goes further down into the earth and you end up at the bottom of the waterfalls… very very strange. We finally came home and I came back to Lakeside on a more than dodgy bike to pick up the washing.
