Sujan and I decided to keep the adrenaline pumping by zip lining 2,000 feet down a mountain at 90mph. At first I was really skeptical about it. But, I thought to myself, "I just jumped off a mountain and flew with the birds, I can do this." My fears subsided after that.
The van picked us up at the hotel. We rode up the same mountain we had paraglided off of yesterday. However, we were zip lining down the other side. If the clouds weren't out today, the group would have seen The Himalayas clear as day.
We got to the top. I looked down to this.
Six people went before me. Their screams made me a bit uneasy. Once it was my turn, I got strapped into my harness. I put my feet up on the gate as the instructor counted down from 5 seconds. And I was off.
What an adrenaline rush. My eyes were watering the whole time. I was spinning around while looking up at the mountains in front of me. Great experience!
We got back to the hotel to rest a few hours. Our next activity was to climb a shorter mountain to see World Peace Stupa, a temple that Buddha prayed at according to the Hindu religion.
What a beautiful view from the World Peace Stupa. Gorgeous.
We hiked back down to the canoe we had rented. To get to the Stupa, we had to row a canoe for a half an hour, hike an hour and then finally we were at the temple. The hike was all up hill, and I had been feeling sick the past few days from food poisoning. It wasn't the best feeling in the world. But the views made it all worth the trip.
We headed out to dinner for the last night in Pohkara. We ended up at Trisara, a popular place for tourists. The beautiful day turned to a gorgeous dusk/nightfall.
