May 5, 1992

I am now at the Hotel Pagoda at lakeside Pardi in Pokhara. I came here after the jungle safari. It is really nice here, but boring. I am moving to the other side of the lake where there are other people.


The weather is getting worse; it is shitty, grey and cloudy. It’s getting cold at night. One day it was really clear and the ice topped mountains are so close, big, and beautiful, but with the clouds they cannot be seen at all. When it was clear, it seemed as if the mountains are just towering overhead on every side. The gigantic Himalayan Mountains are just surrounding this little place and makes you feel real small. The nature here is just breathtaking, and I just wish that I had not come at this time of year and instead had made it here 5 months ago when it was clear, clean and sunny.




Later that day:


Moved to the New Tourist Guest House on the other side of the lake.

I was planning on climbing Annapurna from here (there are climbs for Everest or Annapurna mostly with Everest being the hardest.) Now that it has begun raining lots of climbers are coming down and it seems that it will not be possible to go onto the mountains now. Since I am not a great climber and some really good ones are coming down, saying that it cannot be done, I will take their advice seriously. So let’s see what I can do now for the rest of my stay in Nepal.
