The road to Bandipur

And on to Pokhara


View Nepal 2017 on wangard's travel map.

We left Chitwan and the plains behind with our next stop being Bandipur. On the way out, I couldn't resist a picture of this very odd beautiful flower.

Along the way, we made a couple of nice little stops. This included large bamboo swing structures. A couple of photos of swings on way up, but much better luck on the way down (which will be on the next installment)! Bandipur is a beautiful little town and we again stayed in a restored heritage hotel that was very nice. After settling in we explored the town and found some nice people, cool little details, and again stunning views.

We found evidence of public health and parochial school

The following morning we took in sunrise in Bandipur. Clearer skies would have been welcome, but clouds can provide nice drama as well!

And Bob made a new best friend.

And the Day ended in Pokhara at the World Peace Pagoda, which was stunning in and of itself and for the views it afforded. This was definitely a Buddhist experience, not a Hindu experience and sincere attempts to maintain peace and quiet around the site.
