Day4 Pokhara to Kalopani
We will be leaving Pokhara on our motorbikes towards Beni - 80 km on a perfectly good road, But after that the road from Beni to Kalopani is quite a different story. That is to say, as long as there is no rainfall we have no problems - but when it rains it will be a mud-fest. At least it is all pretty much level, so no going up hill. But it is always an adventurous ride, that's for sure.
