ABC Day 01 – Pokhara

ABC Index

The Descent

A sudden bout of lethargy seemed to hit me as we descended down the trail to the southern shores of Phewa Lake, but I kept on going, past Lychee Garden Resort, and down to the boat houses that were located on the shores of the lake. The boat trip across the lake cost NPR500/3 for the three of us and NPR10 for each (mandatory) life jacket.

The lethargy grew steadily over time and was followed by an almost complete loss of appetite. I was only able to force down half of my dinner (buff fried rice and lassie, NPR270), before the cold chills struck. I began to burn up fairly soon after, so I hurried back to the room (double room per night, NPR1277) for paracetamol before drifting off to sleep.
