Day 10 – Landruk to Pokhara
7:00 to 14:00 + taxi to Pokhara.
There is a ‘road’ from Landruk to Lumie. We wanted to go out past ‘Australia Camp’ to terminate at Phedi. Missed the turn and ended up at Lumie.
Whilst this is a straight forward walk it has lost a lot of charm as really a walk down a dirt road.
Not signed. We were using a official Nepalise map for navigation which did not show the road. The road was very new as was not there three years ago. Asked some local monkeys for directions but they ignored us. By the time had worked out missed the turn had Lumie in sight so decided to come out there. Caught a local bus from Lumie to get to Pokhara. However the buss drove to Phedi then stopped for afternoon meal.
The bus was not very different to Victorian public transport. Crowded, slow and not sure how to pay the fare. Caught a taxi from Phedi to reach Pokhara mid afternoon.
