going Kathmandu (p15) - leaving Poon Hill...

the praying flags

buddhist praying flags...a common sight along the trails of annapurna



'it is time to leave. and we have a long distance to trek ahead', Durga insisted us to make our way back to the hotel. i know, i've been bragging about him since the 1st day we met, and all piled up now. the annoyance and perhaps the anger.

we'd been this far, and only to be told that we couldn't spend our own sweet time at one of the famous places (pardon!) on earth?

i decided to trek down the hill at my own sweet pace. taking pictures etc. and even stopped for a break. i saw Durga's frowning face, each time he looked back at us.


as descending and seeing the trail, it seemed ok. i mean, it was not as bad as hiking the stairs of ulleri. the reason that made me felt breathless ascending the stairs because we hiked in early morning, before the dawn, when the temperature was just below 0 degC.

the frost - and i seriously don't know where does the animated effect come from!

morning at Ghorepani
as we arrived at our hotel, we could see clearly annapurna's himalayan range that we missed on the day before due to the thick mist etc.

#awesome.


sejibik kan!

we went straight to the dining hall and ordered our breakfast. Lim joined us this time. i decided to try the tibetan bread this time. it tasted like our 'cakoi'. 

nepalese nan bread, omelette, potatoes

we took our sweet time, enjoying our breakfast. Lim told us her experience during the arrival where she had to wait for 2.5 hours etc. and of course, i gotta tell her about my cat fight too. hehe. we both agreed, it was just a matter of following the simple common-sense rule, would help the situation.

we bid farewell to each other after the breakfast, and hoping to see again on the next stop i.e. Tadapani

or as i thought...tbc.
