On 17th, senior Bastholm with little Bastholm flew to Pokhara. Pokhara is the tourist city 200km west to capital. It itself is a great tourist destination with bounty of natural beauties and it is also the best starting option for the treks in the Annapurna region. Laura and Lone drove to Nayapul the following day and right away began their trekking expedition to Ulleri.
