Arranging for the trek.

After breakfast visited some travel agencies, confirmed the trek details starting next day, made the payments and went out to rent the motorbike (rentals around Nepal Rupees 300-350). Need to keep a deposit and passport with the rental guys. The good thing about taking your own bikes is you can decide where you want to  go, how much time you want to spend at any place. Petrol at that time was around NR 62 and need around 2 litres to go around the city. Driving in Kathmandu is not an easy feat as there is chaos everywhere, very few people follow rules, almost similar to India, so did not face much problems while driving. Visited Bodhnath, Pashupatinath, Patan and at some places paid the entrance fee around NR20-100 and motorbike parking fee around NR5. Following the map was easy as I struck to the main roads. Need to wear helmets all along and keep them locked to the vehicle when visiting the places. Its good idea to ask the parking attendant guy to keep an eye on your helmets.  

After a long tiring drive the whole day, in the evening went to my travel agency and met the guide, checked the travel permits, flight tickets and the agreed itinerary. Later settled for some food and got ready for our trekking the next day.
