Yesterday sadly we said goodbye to our new found friends in Chitwan and continued on our journey to Pokhara a vibrant town situated at the base of the massive Annapurna mountains. This morning we were up at 5am to hike to Sarangkot a hill station situated high above Phewa Lake. It was a stunning sunrise and the mountains put on their magnificent display. We returned to the hotel for a much earned breakfast then it was off to the Tibetan Refugee Camp where the girls purchased carpets which have been made at the Tibetan Factory situated inside the camp. There bags are beginning to buldge, and they are excited about supporting the economy of Nepal. Next was a relaxing boat ride on Phewa Lake with the amazing Machapucchre mountain as our backdrop. We then managed to fit in a visit to the Namaste Orphanage which is supported by Joanna Lumley there are 65 children at the orphanage between the ages of 6 and 15. One of my ladies who will be joining me on the next tour beginning on the 9th April has kindly offered to do 5 days of teaching whilst the group are trekking to Ghorepani and Poon Hill. Tomorrow morning we will take an early flight to Kathmandu this will be the girls first experience of this manic exciting city before departing the following day to Bhutan.
