Mal mit dem Auto nach Nepal

The earth was moving in April 2015. The epicenter was exactly between the two biggest cities of Nepal – Kathmandu and Pokhara. At this and at the following days several people lost their house, their belongings, their life. Especially in the villages help arrived late or never. Now 1 ½ years later I could see everywhere the traces of the earthquake. They rebuilt a lot in Kathmandu, but the king’s city Bhaktapur was strongly hit by the earthquake and at every corner they were still reconstructing the city. I hoped this time a little bit more sustainable.

Entspanntes Leben
Relaxed life

I enjoyed it to stay this time longer at one place. But I also was happy to hit the road again after a while. The pollution is a big problem in Kathmandu. The air is poisoned by exhaust gases and smoke of burned waste. Sometimes it is only possible to survive in this city with breath protection. So it was good that I chose Pokhara as the next destination. I wasn’t alone this time because Emily who I met in Kathmandu joined me for this trip. When we arrived in Pokhara it was almost raining. I wanted to stand up early in the morning to see the sunrise but I thought the weather must be bad. But at the next morning there was blue sky! When I arrived at the lake I turned around and almost got smashed by this incredible mountain panorama! Right after the city was the Annapurna mountain range which got mirrored in the water of the lake. For several minutes I kept standing there enjoying life.

    Hey Mathias I think you are not done to write about Nepal. Is it simply this much you experienced ?
