Pokhara, Nepal, March 2017: No visit to Pokhara is complete without that iconic view of the mountains reflected in the lake. Today, a combination of still, clean and clear air have provided the optimum conditions for such a view and the best spot for that prize winning photo is ‘Fish Tail Lodge’. (Google Map)
Situated at the Eastern end of Lakeside its just a 5 minute free boat ride across the lake to a scene of peace and tranquility, only occasionally shattered with the cackle of a Chinese tourist. Its definitely pays to arrive early since this is a pretty popular spot as the Chinese tourists jostle for the best photo positions much to the displeasure of residents taking breakfast.
Here’s a gallery of that iconic Annapurna mountain range reflection. If one however is unlucky enough not to experience this tranquil scene, touts on the outside will happily sell a panoramic photo for about 150 Rupees.
Soon… I will be leaving Nepal for a trip to South Korea with a layover in Kathmandu and Kuala Lumpur – I’m always happy to end up in Kuala Lumpur!
