    Wow - thanks for sharing these photos. They brought back many wonderful memories my first trek back in April 2005. We did the Annapurna Circuit and after crossing over Thorung La Pass (17,800' high) we dropped down and trekked through the same area you rode through - from Muktinath to Pokhara. Locals were building the road when we came through and it looks like the road would be an adventurous ride! I loved viewing those huge mountains, especially Dhaulagiri and Annapurna and the Nilgiris. Ahhhhh...... I'm sure glad I went there before the road was built.

    We were there wihen the whole country was "at war" and there was a nationwide strike on transportation so we had to leave Kathmandu before the strike started or we would have been stuck in our hotels. The strike was still on when we finished our trek so we had to hike an extra 30 miles or so, for a total of 200 miles on foot. Riding on a motorcycle would sure be faster and easier, although riding across some of those suspension bridges would scare the heck out of me!

    I have fond memories of Tatopani and the hot springs. We spent an extra day there as it was safer in the mountains than in the cities so we took a couple of rest days during our trek. We were served fresh-squeezed orange juice by a "cabana boy!" :evil Is there a road between Ghorepani and Tatopani? We had to climb 5,000' in elevation from the river floor up to Ghorepani and a big chunk of that was on short, stone steps; definitely nothing "fun" on a motorcycle, or on foot if you have long legs.

    The Himalayas are FABULOUS and I returned a second time almost two years ago. I would LOVE to do some riding over there some time and see more stunning scenery. How much did it cost to rent the bike? Did you use a guide or just go on your own? Did you ride your bike from Kathmandu to Pokhara? I sure as heck would NOT want to ride or drive in that crazy-ass traffic over there. Those drivers are all NUTS!

    great Himalayas!!:freaky
    Rent is Rs 700-1000 per day(Pokhara)..
    Road Kathmandu-Pokhara is a very picturesque, with little traffic, I regret that drove her on the bus.
    Gorepani and Tatopani associated road...
