Life’s a Beach…at Krazy Gecko

Reading Time: 2 minutes

kg-at-kg-9619-feat-image

I have found a fantastic beach resort in Nepal! Really! I have!

Actually…no…sorry to disappoint you. I do tell a lie, of course…but it’s not as outrageous a lie as it sounds!

I have been to beaches and waterfront locales from as far East as Hong Kong and as far West as Hawaii, from as far North as Norway and as far down South as Australia and many in between, including the Philippines, Indonesia, Vietnam, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Azerbaijan, Italy, Spain, Malawi, Tanzania (the island of Zanzibar), Cuba etc.

Many of those places — such as the small wooden cabins on the islands of the Philippines, the bamboo cabins along lake Malawi in Malawi and on the beaches of Zanzibar (my favorite), the cute little beach-hotel rooms in Sri Lanka — I have very very fond memories of. The memories are invariably of relaxed and chilled times, with a drink in one hand and a book in the other or with a friend or two for company, diving into the water and soaking it and the sand and the sun all up…with very little care in the world!

Those experiences developed in me a love for the beaches and big bodies of water — seas, lakes etc. — just as much as I do the mountains!

And I think I have found just the place for such experiences in Nepal. The crowning jewel is that this place is located in Pokhara, the most beautiful city on this planet to boot! 🙂  That the owner is my good buddy Bikash Gurung helps too!

The place is no other than Krazy Gecko Bar and Restaurant!

Here’s where it is at:

Sure it’s about 10-15 minute walk from all the hustle and bustle of Lakeside Road (Baidam Road). But, you will be rewarded well for that effort… with quiet, peace and serenity amongst trees, greenery and a view of the tranquil lake!

kg-gravel-road-9617

Not quite the stoned path, but it will lead you to peace, quiet and serenity! Trust me! 🙂 

kg-relax-on-the-edge-9641

Once there, you can relax on the edge with just a friend or two…if that’s your thing!

kg-where-you-mingle-9624

Or mingle with the rest of the peace lovers!

kg-the-way-to-chill-9657

Or detach yourself and your friends from everyone and everything else as these guys are doing.

kg-enjoy-the-company-9642

Or, even from the friends you came here with, even all the while sitting around a table on cushions facing each other…just the way these guys are doing! 🙂 

kg-bikash-the-bar-9651

Or hang out with Bikash…he has stories to tell…or at the bar (in the background).

kg-your-own-space-9638

Or, if you came here to “get away from it all” do your own thing in that little space…own it, make it your space!

kg-a-cocktail-with-a-view-9655

Or just go for a quiet, relaxed sundowner…

kg-enjoy-a-sundowner-9658

…on a little ledge of a seating area with the late afternoon sun beating on your face…

kg-enjoying-a-sundowner-9659

…just as these ladies did one late afternoon last October.

kg-for-some-shade-9631

But if the sun isn’t your thing, there is plenty of shade!

kg-the-water-9628

Or, being next to the water, if you are fishing for something else, Fewa Lake is your oyster! 😉 (I know Bikash enjoys fishing!)

kg-beck-and-ring-9643

Whatever you want to do, the staff at Krazy Gecko are at your beck and ring…of a bell!

So, pay Krazy Gecko a visit.

If you do, ask for Bikash! Tell him that this blog post of mine got you there! Who knows, he might give you a drink or two on the house!
