What a long bus tryp! From Kathmandu to Pokhara 210km or so BUT WE SPEND 9 HOURS!!!!
Here comes the story:
Early morning like we woke up and at 6.45AM someone from Himalayan Travel Adventures come to pick and drive us by walking (10minutes or so) to the main bus station to Pokhara.
There was crazy, many buses to pokhara from diferent agencies all of them tryying to fullfill their bus...so finally we travel to an other agency bus, ha ha ha
There was a lot of money exchange between all the bus managers, and travel agency stuff it seems that we were merchandise
Once the bus departs (arround 8AM) many people pick and descend from the bus (including policemen) and of course pick his part of money lol
I Thinked about myself "8 hours? Come on! In 4 hour we will reach Pokhara!" WRONG!
During the way we stop many times (for one hour or so) in many police/military controls and also for have lunch, and loose a couple of passengers that descend in one of those controls.
We were escorted by policemen car many times. SCARY!
Arround 18h we reach Pokhara! And spend like 30 minutes walking until we reach the hotel :p
