Annapurna Ranges – Himalayan Ranges from a charter view

 

It was a chilly season full of unexpected weather, snow, rains and of course smokes. No to miss is the wondrous Himalayas and gigantic Annapurna ranges.I would love to relish more on food today! Nepal is rich in food and variants of ingredients used to cook such mouth watering dishes. The food in Nepal is scrumptious. From my first meal, that is – breakfast I was cheery. As belonging to a country where there is are a bountiful diversity of food, here I got different taste and culture.

Nepali Khana

 

Nepal offers you food that has huge influences of Thai, Indian, Tibetan and Korean and European cuisines.To try the dishes are – Traditional Thali, Nepali Dal Bhaat, Tarkari Bhaji and of course, the momos.

Come have a look with me the array of cuisines, we ate in Nepal. The long walk on the streets on Kathmandu, exploring Thambel where we stayed in a beautiful Hotel – Hotel Vaishali, came across quite a good cafeteria and restaurants. I enjoyed an assortment of food that in indulged in the aura of Western meals.

I personally loved the fresh cold potato and sauté tomato served with breakfast, which is startling. Moreover, I was a fan of the spiced chutney served with quite a number of dishes. It has a tangy, yet sour, yet spicy taste. An Icing on the cake are the omelets, they were the winner all the time. Especially the cheese soaked to the skin often served with the crispy roll.

Momos are not traditionally Nepalese food, but you will be amazed to see momos of different flavor here. They were available from the high-end cafes to the local market. Veg and Non-veg both.

Haaa. I with my kiddo went momo mad. Again the added up flavor was the chutney and the sauce, Oh my-my.

I went mad to try out all kind of dishes, then finally tried pork, beef, various meat dishes, baked veggies, and not to miss are the burgers…Nepal has a very different savor of bakery items, the huge veg burger made my stomach full for almost the entire day. I had it in Pokhara..OMG

I tried eating at almost every café, and then in Pokhara it started raining while walking on the streets full of colors, to hide ourselves from chilly weather, entered a European style cum latin architecture café –Lake side Pokhara, where we had hummus with Nan. Ahah, for a coffee buff like me.I happen to have my cuppa of coffee in Pokhara. The instant and the espresso were appealingly nice. In Pokhara I saw Himalayan Arabica beans, went over-excited to have it, trust me guys, it was a blessed day! Then I tried caramel coffee the – Illy Coffee, went gaga over it again …

For the rest of my stay in Nepal, I choose caramel coffee over anything. Relishing it on the lake side cafes and shacks on the banks of dazzling Phewa lake in Pokhara.  The view was gorgeous.

Triund is a very fashionable trekking spot. Triund creates a center of attention to a lot of tourists every year from India and all over the globe. With my last trip to Triund trek, I can definitely say that it is mesmerizing peak in ode of nature and can be portrayed as a serene trek which can be effortlessly consummate by roughly all age groups.

Triund has an unmistakable byway which goes through a striking mix of the forest of oak, deodar and rhododendron. Trek is moderately easy for the first five kilometers but the last one kilometer is a bit of a toil and tough trek. This last one kilometer has some “22 curves” as it has rigid and stony 22 tiring curves prior reaching the final leap of the trek to Triund.

Snow Capped Dhauladhar Ranges

Trek close by rhododendrons and oaks, and camp in a cavern makes it a best way out from the hussle-bussle.

 Dharamkot

Stroll up through the woodland for around 15 minutes before you get to the Galu sanctuary clearing.

Beneath, falsehood the green verdant edges of Triund and just adjacent to the trail is profound lush abysses through which run the different streams that deplete the southern face of the Dhauladhar.
