Nepal doesn't let us go

This is our favorite shops to buy trekking stuff :)

 

After back from pokara, we searched for a new guesthouse to stay. Taxi driver tried to send us somewhere he knew but we just wanted him to drive and searched the nice one then we passed Annapurna Hotel. Ale told him to stopped and went to check it. I waited for him in the taxi. He came and said "it's nice". Five stars hotel ... and quite expensive. But as we're tried from Pokara and as Ale was still sick so it's good to stay in a good place just one night :)

Life was better in this hotel indeed haha. Even I hardly stay in the best hotel in towns when I travelled but I can't say I wasn't enjoy this one. Totally different from everywhere we stayed in this trip. Today we have time to discuss a lot about our trip and we thought the same that we're in Kathmandu too long.

My Thai food in Thamel!
It's a nice city but it's too much for us so ... we should find the ticket back to india within tomorrow!!!

Woke up in the morning, supposed to go to look for the tickets with Ale but he was still sick. It's like Tibetian Beer's still poisoning his stomach so I went out alone. First, checked out Thai Airways. Was a long cue there. I waited for 45 minutes just to hear they say "we're sorry Mam, the flights to India are full!!"

WTF!!

From Nepal to India, has only two airlines to go ; Thai Airways and Indian Airline. And now they're full. They're fully booked until November 15. Wow. We got the tickets to go back to Thailand from India on October 31. Anyway, we had to be in India on October 31 or before. I went to many travel agencies, to ask if we had a chance.

Love this bag ..
I booked and waited in the waiting list. But ... no good sign. Maybe we have to try another way which is to take the bus or the cab to India.

Seemed like Nepal doesn't want to let us go ...

We walked in to another travel agency where we bought ticket to Pokara to ask for the cab to India. "It will take long time", the officer said, "and would be expensive. But .. I think you have another way to go to India now."

Really? How? . .. He said to go to Bangaladesh and change flight to India but it'd be a bit expensive. We thought for a second and said yes. Just please help us find the way just to go back to India that would be great. He took a few minutes and said "you've got the tickets, fly tomorrow" :D:D:D YeS!

Ok, ready to go to India, we miss you now!

Hiya! Glad you like the blog! Are you going there? Jealous. I'd like to go back again. For Polar mount, I bought sleeping bag and what you call it - it's a hot/cold water keeper. For other stuff, some are genuine, some are fake but Ale bought waterproof jacket from there, it's also good. But if you don't like their stuff, there are other shops on that street. (Trekking shoes I don't remember they have it?) And sure, bargain!!! :) Where will you go to trek? Ananpurna or Langtang or Everest? Wherever it is, have fun!! :)

Hi! I enjoyed reading your blog. I am on my way to Nepal this July 23 and seeing a lot of good pointers from your write ups. Just a question, though, is Polar Mount a good place to shop for trekking gears? I am coming there without anything so I would be buying my trek shoes and other gears in Kathmandu? Do I need to bargain too?
