                     Leisure time outside the Shangrila Village Hotel in Pokhara

Saturday 20 November

Itinerary: DAY 20 Fly to Kathmandu We take the 30 minute flight to Kathmandu (leaving Pokhara at 09:55 hrs) and transfer to hotel. 2 nights The Malla Hotel on bed and breakfast.

[Diarist: Sue]
A misty morning in Pokhara meant that we faced a delayed flight, but in this lovely spot it was not a problem. After a later-than-normal breakfast, we loitered around the hotel reception reading. When the sun came out we slowly migrated outside, where some sort of view materialised. A hazy Machupuchare and Annapurna South were visible.

After some nice fresh coffee, we headed for the airport. Our 10:45 'Yeti Air' flight eventually took off around 1pm ish. A seat on the left side meant that views were memorable [for Sue, I was on the right - Ed] all the way back to Dhaulagiri. The Himalayas were stretching as far as the eye could see during the twenty minute flight to Kathmandu.

The afternoon was spent around the Radisson Hotel - I used the sauna and jacuzzi, others used the gym. 

We treated Sanjeev and Shirish to a meal out - originally planned for the 'Yak and Yeti' hotel, but it was fully booked. Instead, we had a lovely meal at the 'Bukhara' restaurant, an excellent Indian restaurant. The size of the naan bread was amazing - enough for eight! We enjoyed three bottles of an Australian Shiraz-Cabernet before returning by minibus.
