Get the Visa and Run

There i was at Battar village, in Nowakot area, that i managed to spend 2 relaxing and refreshing days, after the stressful and dusty Kathmandu. The area is so incredibly beatiful there, that is really difficult to describe… Just see for yourself!

I was staying in Hari’s house, who was so kind to take me to all those magic places. Thanks a lot man 🙂

After recharging my batteries in Battar, i returned at Kathmandu and met with my new host, Mandip. So at those next 7 days, i was hanging around with Mandip, i finished some internet jobs and finally i received my Indian visa from the embassy!
I was really happy and relieved to have it in my hands. One more day i enjoyed Mandip’s mother delicious cooking(the momo’s were awessome!) and i said goodbye to all of them. Thanks for everything! 🙂

After i took the bus for Bharatpur. The plan was when i would reach there i would start cycling again after 3 whole months without cycling… When inside the bus though, i met with Ranjit who was sitting next to me.

The route through the Himalayas and by the river was so magical.

Ranjit invited me to stay in his house, next to the jungle. Of course i could not refuse. When we got of the bus, an unpleasant surprise was waiting for me… My bicycle had 2 scars and damaged mudguards, because of the bumpy road and our “F1” bus driver. I was trully pissed, but soon i realised that there are worse things in life than this and that next time i should be more carefull with things, people and decisions.
So here i was at Ranjit’s house, enjoying his wife’s great meals and playing with Arsi, their 2 year old cute daughter!

Next day we repaired the bicycle and went with Ranjit and his friends into the jungle with the motorbikes. I was hoping to see some rhino’s, but we were not that lucky. Anyway we still saw so many incredible things, like this lake.

This village deep inside.

And this place at the end of the road. There were also school kids having picnic there.

After 3 months i sat on my bicycle’s seat post again… It was a long time but i immediately got the rhythm back! So the first cycling day was smooth and i arrived in Chormara, where i easily found a place to sleep. The next morning i knew i had a tough mission. I had to go up and down, through a big jungle hill. I started going up and i was watching the monkey’s around me, jumping from tree to tree! Priceless 😀 

After i got down, i searched for a place to sleep. I found a camping spot with a tiny street restaurant next to it. I had a tea there and i met with Nereyn, who invited me to his house, to spend the night with his family! Of course i followed him and had a great time with his children, tasted the delicious cooking of his wife and talked with him. Thank you so much Nereyn 🙂

I continued to the west and in midday i reached Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha! Sidarta Gautama was born here 2500 years ago.

There are lots of temples here now and it is really peaceful and relaxing place!

I rested after 3 days of cycling and i was prepared for the next destination.

It was India… 😀 

I am definitely sure that i will miss Nepal a lot. It is by far the most beautiful country that i have been until now! The nature, the mountains, the people, the culture, the food, all blending together and creating a magical result that it is really hard to put it into words. I am sure that i would visit Nepal again in the future. These were my last images…
