Kathmandu was definitely unlike any other place I'd visited until that point, and within a few days I'd bought knock off trekking gear, developed an appreciation for milk tea, paid far too much for a rickshaw ride, and adapted to the nightly power cuts (4 hours at a time). But a long-anticipated trek in the Himalaya awaited, and that required a bus ride west to the country's second largest city, Pokhara.
The Road To Pokhara details the journey.
