Dhikur Pokhari is a small lake on the way from Pissang to Manang, on the Annapurna Circuit Trek. Dhikur means pigeon and Pokhahri means a small pond. So the name literally means a pond of pigeons.

While I didn’t see to many pigeons there were two ducks of some kind at a far distance on the pond. I did not go chasing them for a photo as my legs were already weary and Manang (our next stop) was a long way ahead. How do I know what the name means? My guide explained it to me. And once more I really miss not being able to see the high mountains as I went there in monsoon.

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
