This is a quite an exciting day for trekkers because after breakfast, we reach the bus station for a drive to the scenic lakeside city of Pokhara. The drive is about 7 hours and goes through scenic countryside of central Nepal. We stop for lunch at Gunadi at around 11:30am, and reach Pokhara in another 2 hours. Pokhara is a holiday city, and looking at the lakes, hills and mountains, it is no wonder why it is so well known. Wide panorama of Annapurna range is clearly visible from the city, most notably Machhapuchare (Fishtail mountain) that prominently overlooks Pokhara. Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Lamjung Himal and Manaslu also tower above.
