It is a rare moment to share views with Rudra Pandey; those are not always possible to output some personal ideas, jokes, and endeavors. It is also a chance to get acquainted with his insights, vision, entrepreneurship and fellowmenship. His inspiration helps fellow hikers to become social, humble, and good being. He prefers that we take food at local small shops than well known, recognized and rich restaurants so that locals where we visit can be promoted. We also talked about future possibilities in development of computer, communication, and software development industries in Nepal. We also talked on funding remote and disaster-hit areas of Nepal where poverty is taking lives. We also discussed on various motto of being healthy, wealthy, and wise and hiking is one.

Kumar Pradhanang is rarely seen in hiking trips, making some 3 per year, and I found that it was his second one. He hopes to make his third trip around September this year so that he doesn’t deviate from his wish to have three best hikes per year. He is often seemed to make jokes lesser, but during the hike, his jokes excited everybody.

Kapil coordinated the hike. He also accompanied Pravinda in serving us dishes in the awfully peaceful Sunsaan Restaurant in Bhaktapur district. During the trip of about 7 hours, one were so exhausted that fellows would need to wait for half an hour or hours, and everybody else would be in pace. The hikers also remembered the place from where Rajesh Pyakurel had once vanished, some months ago. The tasty breakfast at Surya Binayak local restaurant, the blacktopped roadside, and the narrow difficult uphill trail were main facets of this journey. The cute small local school at Asapuri took our hearts away.

Abhishesh Joshi, who has already won some photography series from everestuncensored.org, had a number of new lenses and filters that were new to the whole group. I was later enthralled to learn that he had spent most of his earnings to pursue his interest in photography.

The craze to savor cucumber soon vanished when an elderly lady said she had none growing this year.

The craze to savor cucumber soon vanished when an elderly lady said she had none growing this year. She had attributed whole house for keeping some pet animals like hens, cows, buffaloes, all in single place. There was no trace if she had ever considered of any diseases that could transfer in between, without seclusion. We however got some tasty green pears in a big tree. What amazed us or say, came as a welcoming gesture from the people, was that the landlord’s daughter happily served us few couples of pears for free. We however managed to ask her to put some money to help for the tree. The narrow steep downhill from the remote house was treacherous and some of us had to use large sticks to support climbing down the terrain.

And how can we forget the story of sweet Chyaang (local beer) that local laborers enjoys ever day, with the accompanying mouth watering Gundruk (Dried Green Vegetables) ?

Mahesh was cracking jokes like Suresh during sweet moments and making intelligent guesses. We cannot forget the guitarist Ravi always discussing new ideas with Pravinda and Suresh to make new alliance and hit the Nepalese market. They might form a new musical band, and the motive wouldn’t be profit, but social service.

    Look “AnotherRayBanFan” I know your spirit, you are cylindrical. I thought you would convince the Economist of Russia to save the economy. I can remember your mustache, symolizing communist walfare.

    Hey “Hawkeyefan” I love you, I am serious. At least you could imagine my RayBan. I tell you, I lost it in Febatal in Pokhara while boating with my girl friend. My girl friend started hating me as I could not look as gooder any more. I have full trust on you that you help me out finding it. I could not show my face public without it and there you are I have resign. My big boss could not even recognize me. God is great…..

    Hawkeye, hehe, you lost your RayBan in which pond? I will hike there and find it for you and so you can visualize the real nepali culture, society, dimension, cubes,and time.

  3. Hawkeye

    Hey “raybanFan” salaam chha maya lai. I believe you are the only one supposed replying as my fan. Hope every thing is fine across, health too looks damn good, my wish. I was dreaming when I saw you in RayBan, dashing. I also carry the same attitude but in different style. I am looking for the same RayBan, lost in pond, you don’t owe me I believe. It’s rainy season and you don’t get cucumber every now and then. Welcome abroad……. Lati

  4. WelcomeBack ShutterBug

    When Shutterbug had vanished from EU and no rating for pictures were seen, the viewers dropped, but now, thanks, you have made return and we expect them to rise a lot for villagers sake and creative pictures.

    Exploring the natural world is always a delightful act. To take it forward, hiking, for example, not only just throws up opportunities to intermingle with people around, but also offers plenty of chances to capture the passing beauty of Mother Nature at her best.

    This is a world of its own, to use a cliché. Appreciating flowers blooming away along the trail, taking some time off to simply watch the bushes that bear no fruits but are around, reflecting on rain that drench the hills and the plains, or just taking the sun in all its glory. Then there is scintillating scenery that soothes one no end and of course the local culture. But it all comes free of cost with only condition being one has to hike around.

    Sometime the smallest creature like the picture of crab above can mean so much of beauty.
    Reflect on what you are entitled in the light of the beauty of the world around you. Man is a part of the nature, and nature is a part of us. There is joy in appreciating what comes in front of one provided one walks along the right trail in pursuit of pleasing the senses. There is music in the wind, there is magic in the air. Only thing one has to do is depend on one’s imagination when it comes to look for a guide on when and where to click away merrily and cherish photography along.
