Hiking & Home Visit at Astam
There are few places on earth like Nepal where you can enjoy so much diversity in such a small place. And, Pokhara is such a lovely destination that no words can express it's beauty. This is not only an "Ode to Odyssey" but certainly once in a life time there to be. And, Astam (meaning the place where the sunset) is an agriculture-based rural Nepali village, about 15-km north to Pokhara City. There are few typical Nepali houses located on hilltop from where beautiful scene of the valley and villages, hills and rills can be observed. Moreover, the Annapurna range, including Macchapuchhre (Fishtail), can be seen as if in a stone throw distance. The snow-clad mountain painted in a crimson paint in twilight is magnificent and the whiff of fresh air is more delightful. In short, the atmosphere is something like a poet's “A song born on a quiet night" so melodious, so sweet, so delightful- a perfect Shangri-La. Here, you feel as if you are close to heaven. A touch of happiness tingles in your heart. Astam- simply a paradise where you can see, feel, touch and be with the nature in this life without practicing any religious act. What is need is a pure to love the nature and a deep desire to be with the nature.
