Once I had my meditation and personal well-being (Tibetan mantra) session in Kathmandu, I felt like I was ready to continue my journey to Pokhara ... not by flight as I had heard so many stories about flights being canceled due to inclement weather and whatnot; so I took the scenic route via the Greenline bus departing Kathmandu at 7:30 am and arriving in Pokhara around 2:30 pm for US$23 (lunch included). Nonetheless, I also heard that the views from above of the Himalayas and even Mt. Everest are so worth the flight!
Once I found my accommodation, Hotel Tara, I headed out to find a place for a tandem paragliding session. It's worth noting that Pokhara is one of the top 5 locations for tandem paragliding in the world!
Although I forgot the name of the establishment I chose or the one recommended through my hotel, the experience was definitely one to remember as it did overshadow my previous road experience from the Tibetan border to Kathmandu.
