5th May, 2014 - Kathmandu to Pokhara

The move from KTM to Pokhra was uneventful, except for the 5 hour bus ride being prolonged to nearly 12 hours due to landslides along the route. Vehicles were lined up on both sides for a couple of kms and approx 4 hrs was wasted in negotiating this stretch. We reached the hotel in Pokhra at approx 2100 hrs.  and after a quick wash went out for dinner. During the drive to Pokhra some members had the opportunity to negotiate a rope bridge for the first time.  While waiting for the traffic to move we noticed that most motorists maintained discipline and were very patient waiting for the queue to move unlike in India where everyone tries to outsmart the others. The children however enjoyed the journey and were in high spirits.
