Finally, it was our turn. After hearing all the hiking stories from our intern friends, Manish and I couldn’t resist giving our names for the next hiking. Among the team of 17, five of us were giving our first shot at D2 hiking with a lot of excitement and curiosity. Sushmita and I were the only female hikers in the team ready for the unlimited adventure that the hiking sessions were reputed for. We set out at around 7:30 am to our hiking route from Nagdhunga to Sitapaila. The cool and refreshing weather was enhanced by some real good numbers played by DJ Ravi and AbhisekhS on the way.

When we reached our destination, we were literally amazed at the beauty of the place. The view of the hills, forest along with the fresh air recharged our souls. As truly said that Nepal is full of natural beauty, you only need to go out and explore. Climbing through the steep hills was the hardest part of the trip for Dijup and me. Dijup kept saying ‘Bhagwan mujhe uthaale’ when he felt hopeless during accent and I felt the same at times. But with the help and support of the team members we somehow made it to the top. On the way, some of the team members (Manik, Abhishek, and Dijup) chose to donate blood to the leeches though I didn’t get that opportunity. That was the first time I saw the leeches alive.

Gaurav, Dhilung, Pradeep, Suresh, Manik, Bishwa and Ishwor captured some truly incredible shots. Their amazing photography deserves an award. The day was cloudy since morning and it rained at regular intervals all day. Despite the rain, we managed to keep walking. Babins had come with the full preparation along with his raincoat, towels and extra clothes although that was his first hiking in D2.

Not a single moment was boring, thanks to such a wonderful team. We kept cracking jokes and making fun of each other throughout the journey. Abhishek PC’s constant concern throughout the hiking was encouraging. The amazing and spectacular view of mountains, hills, forests and a pleasant stroll through Amitabha Monastery at the end was the perfect reward for all the efforts we made. Seeing the rainbow was magnificent and the sound of wind chimes and the spiritual environment of the Monastery stimulated a feeling of positivity and serenity in all of us, and for a moment made us forget about the tiring feet and hungry stomach.

Finally, after a peaceful and relaxing time in the monastery, we made our way back and headed downhill through an easy walk to Sitapaila drenched in rain. We were then picked up by the office van at around 6:30pm which took us for the final meal of the evening. It was a wonderful end to a brilliant day – the whole team was together for dinner, except Raj who had to part from us at Sitapaila.

Nothing could summarize this hike better than this poem by Bishwa:
a walk to serenity

a walk to serenity
through the plains and hills,
through the shades of the pine trees
away from this feverish place
to a place where we can rest

a walk to serenity
where we discard our beast
where silence tortures us the least
where the sound of the chimes
soothes our mind
where the dark clouds pour rain
instead of just a gloomy day
where the eyes of the enlightened
watches us with respect
for we are at peace
with the nature,
with the world around us
with the creatures, that surround us

a walk to serenity
a moment of peace
a touch of the infinity
a moment of bliss

we walked the road
we kissed the reason
we met the non-existent
beyond the horizon!

  22. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.

  32. @ Shutterbug
    Thanks for the comment here. Must be your first comment in a hiking post I guess 🙂

    Out of those pics you mentioned Pic 30 ‘Love lies bleeding’ and Pic 15 ‘Innocence’ are lovely works from Gaurav…. Team described that child as the most photogenic face in the crowd.
    Pic 63 ‘Twins’ nice work of Ravi.

    And rests are mine

    @raikanchi
    Sure will take you there when you comeback.. and my fav shot is of course 69 ‘Shine On You Crazy Rainbow’. You know why, right? ehe

    @Pic Pasand Ayaa and pic lover
    Thanks.
    Caption came in my mind even before I took that shot… .. the actual view of the mist coming down to engulf that lost tree was amazing..

    @ Gaurav
    Ya, I took that pic 32… 😉

    I feel like pictures have overshadows the actual hiking excitements..
    Let me put some of my points here
    ->Sush wishing for a rain that would last for 5mins when we reached the Danda Gaun (last up-hill that we accomplished that day) and surprisingly it rained! If we had started a timer I guess it was exactly for 5 mins 🙂

    ->I was a regular visitor of Amitava Monastery in the past. When I reach there after a long pause, I was sad to find out that my good old friend ‘Padma’ an Aani had already left the Monastery.

    ->Seeing The Rainbow! This was probably after many years, I got chance to see her in front of my eyes! Shine On You My Crazy Rainbow! (see my shot 69)

    ->Mediation experienced by Ravi. He was not even aware of mosquito biting during his pursuit of meditation.

    long comment .. phew!

  33. @one of the hikers

    Sorry bro…wasn’t me who did #32. I’m guessing must be Dhilung or Bishwa. I only did 15,16,27 and 30 🙂

  34. a sachi…ii forgoi to mention ……26,32,46,47 and 56 ta jhan mind blowing…..its juss wow…..title no. 59 should b “dreamsky” hehe…..jus kidding…neverthless…..these are masterpiece….

  37. It’s great to see interesting pictures in each hiking report and needless to tell, D2H hikers are wonderfully exploring their creativity through photography and poems. Keep up the spirit!

    Picture no: 15 ‘Innocence’ is lovely.

    Pictures no: 25 ‘Freshness-Redefined’ and 38 ‘Lunch at Farm’ are good close-up shots.

    Pictures no: 27 ‘Cloud Calling’ is concept and caption are great. Whoever took these shots has eyes of a true photographer and perfect sense of visualization.

    Picture no: 30 ‘Love lies bleeding’ is tragically romantic. The separation line of land and sky should be horizontal.

    Pictures no: 47 ‘Red Snow’ and 63 ‘Twins’ are very creative.

    Picture no: 69 ‘Shine On You Crazy Rainbow’ is a dream come to true of any Landscape photographer. Great moment indeed.

  38. pic no 69…wow…..
    how ever clicked that pic 69 had done a gr8 job.
    the rainbow looks “wow….”.

  39. hey shanti

  41. la maile khichidiyeko pic del bhayeko raicha.. 😥
    😈 ko ho tyo delete garne..
    ishwar ko cam bata hola..

  42. I was in dilemma for joining this hike or not due to muscle cramp from the last hike. It was Abhishek who insisted me in joining this hike. Looking at the group I thought this would be a great hike, most of them were of same age and familiar too.
    Ramkot to Amitabh monastery was my first hike at d2 which added more excitement. To see the place almost a year after was one of wonderful experience. I was wondering what is inside the monastery how it looks like. Finally I got a chance to enter inside this time. For me the best part of the hike was while 3 of us(dhilung, Abhishek and I) were sitting silently inside the monastery. The small piece of music inside the monastery made the whole environment so much mystique that as if we are living in a new world, a world of spirituality, a world of serenity. The theme and the experience ……. 😆 😎 Perfect hike

    and finally thanks to abhishek Im alrite now and there’s no problem on my leg as well

  43. oie tek!
    we work and enjoy as well! n thats the excitement of working at D2.
