Pokhara - heaven on earth

View of Annapurna mountain range seen in the early morning from damside in Pokhara.

I have been to Pokhara few times before. But this time was different. May be because it was the first (honeymoon) trip with my wife. In 4 days we went to every place in Pokhara I had wanted to but could not go before. Damside was one of them. We hired a motorbike the previous night and left the hotel at 6am. It took only about 5 minutes to reach the end of fewa lake (pictured above). It was freggin' cold.. but was totally worth it.

No picture can express the feeling of being at that spot, watching the sunlight slowly fall on the mountains. Priceless.
