I didn't expect to have such wonderful trekking journey in Pokhara (Nayapul --Tikhedhunga -- Ghorepani --Annapurna mountains.....) since I needed to walk alone all the way. Thanks to the travel agency's arrangement, I got a caring & trustworthy Guide / Porter with me. The trails in Annapurna are truly awesome, mountain lovers should not miss them here. Even the cost is a bit higher than what other Chinese trekkers advised me. However I reckon it's quite worthy. After all, safety & pleasure are the most crucial to a solo traveller.

I told Mr Surendra, the manager of Shree Tibet Family Guest House about my plan to go to Pokhara by bus and back by flight, he said no problem, he will get bus tickets and flight tickets for us, he ask me whether i want bus with aicon or without aircon, i said without aircon because cold season in Nepal, the bus fare cost about USD 12 per person and flight ticket USD102 per person. Night before our journey, Mr Surendra reminded us to wake up early because at 6.00am we should be ready at the lobby. We were very excited, we woke up very early, we carried light backpack, the rest we kept it at the hotel conceige. We also brought a flask of hot coffee, a bottle of energy tea drinks and sandwiches . At 6.10 am guided by a hotel staff, we walked to the tourist bus station together with other hotel guests (a young girl from Argentina, couple from UK and couple from Belgium), at 6.20 we were already at the bus station. I saw many tourist bus from various bus companies already line up, waiting for the passangers. Our tourist bus company known as Baba Adventure tour and travel company, the bus in blue colour. The bus look good, the seat was comfortable, my seat no 31 and 32 left hand side, last seat at the back. Almost all tourist bus to Pokhara moved around 6.30 to 7.00am to Pokhara. What we called tourist bus station actually was not a proper bus station, all the tourist bus line up at the road side of Kartipath road. View in Kathmandu city along the journey was not so nice, very dirty, rubbish scattered all over, the river full of rubbish and the water black in colour. Many shops still close except shops selling vegetables, foods and fruits. Most of the building look old, ugly and crowded, The road condition was not so good, some very bumpy. Outside, very noisy with sound of hon from vehicles on the road, many peoples walking, strolling, standing, lingering here, there and every where. But when we arrived at Satungal, the view become better, not crowded , nice view with vegetables farms. Thankot area more beautiful , more green, with jungles, highlands and valley. Actually, if we want to go to Pokhara by bus, better take seat at right hand side because the view beautiful with river flow side by side with the road, we can see mountain range, valley, plantation, farm and villages. But if we take seat at left hand side , the view not so nice, quite monotonous with jungle and high slope, our eyes and head always looking up, after sometime we feel uneasy and painful especially at our neck. The road after Kathmadu city in good condition, except at Nagdhuga area, the road very narrow with sharp corner , deep slope and we can see the road layered by layered. Along the journey, the bus stop for rest at 3 places, first stop about 5 minit, the place on the top of the hill, with food stalls and toilet, view of villages and farms, second stop about 15 minutes, the place with restaurant, toilet facities and nice view of river flow and third stop for lunch about 30 minutes with good restaurants, toilet facilities and view of villages and farms. Along the journey, the bus crossed two long bridges, one after Chitwan with big signboard Welcome to Tanahun, and the other one near to Pokhara, the bridge known as Madi Bridge. We reached at Pokhara bus station at 14.30. My Journey from Kathmandu to Pokhara by bus was the moment of truth, very special , meaningful and adventurous.

we four "older" trekkers really enjoyed our trek with Asian Journey Treks & Expeditions.Our guide Binod, and porters Prem and Santosh, were always helpful and patient. The organisation of the trek was impeccable. The entire trip ran smoothly, and all the arrangements made by Surya and his team were perfect. We would highly recommend this company to anyone who is considering a trek in theis region.

First of all, thank you so much for all the organizing you did on our behalf! The entire trip went off without a hitch because of all the planning that had been done beforehand, it was wonderful! We were SO well taken care of and it was amazing!
The food was awesome and we loved it! We were amazed by the variety that was available, even all the way!

All in all, I speak for all of the ladies in the group when I say that this was an amazing trip and your company provided top-notch service for us which we really appreciated! We have told everyone we know about you and passed along your e-mail and contact info. If we decide to come back (which we might some day), we will be looking you up again to plan our trip for us!
