Welcoming New Year 2017: Pokhara Trip- A refreshing one!


Posted on January 11, 2017 Travel/Photography

After a hectic schedule during the new year days, the end of the week became our travel days. We, the group of six friends went on a bike ride to Pokhara in order to welcome new year 2017. Panch Pokhari Trek, in November 2016 was one of the best travels made in 2016. And, reminding myself the memories of that mesmerizing trek to Panch Pokhari the quest of amazing moments in Pokhara began with bike ride.

Snaky roads, honking vehicles, cool breeze and less number of houses, we followed the trails with mounted excitement. Chasing the setting sun, the bike ride continued until late evening when we reached beautiful, captivating destination: Pokhara.

Watching the cloudy night sky and colorfully lighted landscape with scattered houses, I didn’t find any difference comparing those houses with stars illuminating in the land.

“Travel becomes a strategy for accumulating photographs.”
Susan Sontag

The Pokhara Trip surely happened to be a very good strategy to click loads of pictures. Yay!! 😀
Let’s begin the display of pictures!

The serene and sacred Gupteshwor Cave!

Even though we went to other caves (including  Mahendra Cave, Chamere Cave -Bat Cave in english) as well, I didn’t click any pictures of them because of low lighting condition. And my Canon with Kit lens couldn’t capture them properly. So set them free 😀 😀

“The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.” ―Christopher McCandless
