The Wayfarer Diaries: The Bus Ride To Besisahar

1835 hours, 21-02-2018, Bhimsensthan, Besisahar Municipality, Lamjung District, Province No. 4, Nepal:

An hour and a half after we left from Pokhara, we crossed over a bridge over a huge river bed called the Madi Khola and the view was just awesome. As we crossed Siundibar after a total of three hours of the journey, the weather was¬†cloudy and cool. That however wasn’t a sure sign of rain as the weather has been playing tricks for the past few days with no rain so far. The valley was very wide with numerous terrace farms all along the road and many houses even had prayer flags tied around their roofs.

We finally reached Besisahar as the sun settled down for the day. It is a pretty big town but it feels really great to be in the mountains again, for you can just feel it in the air. Even the clouds are giving way to let the crescent moon take a peek at the earth below.
