Nuwakot-Palace-Panorama God bless us the nuwakot palace durbar temple in nepal and areas extremely magnetic

Amit recollects Amateur hikers and backpackers: we’re all over the place, and we’ll hike anything we think is within our capability, and sometimes we’ll even hike things that we think might be beyond our capability. We love standing at the top of a mountain, and seeing amazing views that we’ll never forget and share special moments with friends and family. We love the excitement of seeing some piece of wilderness…whether animal, plant, or mineral…that was never seen before. The feeling of second wind makes us feel like we could keep on going forever. We hate the feeling when we realize that we can’t keep on going forever but we’re just too stubborn to accept that fact.

But “With Every New dawn There Is a New Beginning “.

All refreshed and ready to travel, for my second hike from D2, I was the first to reach at the office premises (just a 15 minutes’ walk from my home)“Sometimes it’s the path of mistake and uncertainty that turns out to be the best “.

The plan was to go to Tarakeshwor to Kakani but as per everyone’s interest, we headed to Nuwakot. Lava dai’s unstoppable exaggeration, phrases like (wow, so sweet) and awesome music added sweet toppings to the journey. After about 4 hours of ride we reached to Nuwakot. But unfortunately, it turned out to be Nuwakot Bandh. It was dubious that whether we could be able to hike or not. Everyone felt like it was a blunder heading to Nuwakot. Nepal Students Union did the band for the protest against YCL. It was a proud feeling that we went to Nuwakot even though there was Nuwakot bandh. On reaching Nuwakot, a mass of 15-20 people ran towards our vehicle threatening to destroy it. There was nervousness and similar unpleasant emotion in everyone’s face, a feeling that we jeopardize ourselves. Thank God, nothing serious occurred and we decided to hike through keeping the vehicle behind.

“Half of what I say is meaningless; but I say it so that the other half may reach you.” – Kahlil Gibran

Surely not one of the toughest hikes, nevertheless it was great fun as the weather was on our side. High humidity was of no problem as rain helped us all along the way, drenching us all the way, making the perfect situation for hike in the summer. After couple of hours we reached the destination – Nuwakot Durbar where Great Prithivi Narayan Shah (an ebullient leader) used to live. We walked through the place, grasping all our memories in the camera.

After some hours of travelling and photo shooting, it was time for lunch. We fueled ourselves in of the restaurants out there. Ah! The food was so tasty. I will surely go to the same restaurant if I get another chance to travel to Nuwakot.

It was already 5:30 pm and so wasting no time, we packed our bags and travelled back to Kathmandu. Rain; which seemed to be benediction before turned out to be a whammy on the way back. Vision was very difficult as murk surrounded the whole area. As driving is very difficult on those condition, everybody’s charm just mused. Hey we arrived safe! Thanks to Ram dai, we reached safely, where it seemed to be some evil conditions surrounding the area.

Finally, it was an awesome hike with many more things to remember and travelling to a new destination surely makes your life interesting and adventurous.

    Hello Lava Ji, Very nice comment, in your words- Interesting, Wow and Beautiful. By the way you were lucky that 5m snake didn’t catch your leg but i am unlucky that i couldn’t capture or see such a long snake.

  7. Lava Kafle

    @Lava Dai…ohh RamDai ko brake ….Kada kada…..my first thought was some fellow sitting by the side of the road got under the tyres due to the filmy expression of the Girl (Aaaaaaa…….) ……

    Fellow hiker photographer Nischal, you are so perfectly correct Quoting you”I had a new experience with face to face encounter with NSF Nebisangh student and Hiking during bandha time. Any way we could Hike from the reason we came for a photography session as a Nuwakot visit destination for 2011 tourism year. ”
    It was ghastly experienc in the beginning as you started consoling those vandalizing gang. You saw what police said later. It was trauma, but anyway we kept up our efforts to reach historical nuwakot palace durbar .
    We also MUST NOT FORGET the superb hospitality from the superb host with so much respect and attention when taking meal. And interesting was RamDai’s brakes when two dogs jumped under the tyres of our van.
    I saw extremely long snake but could not get time to photograph it, it was about 5 metres long , i was lucky it did not catch my legs. I would have to be rushed to nearby clinic then.
    As mentioned in comments above there is no one caring the ruining heritage of nepalese. Visit Nepal year 2011 will fail if we see behaviors like these.

    wonderful link up paul, thanks. It shows why the place is underdeveloped uncared. There is nobody to care the place. Dr. RamSharan Mahat Finance Minister of Nepali congree, Imagine how bad he is who hails from the same place and won in last election using all those wild dons, gangs and notorious people.

  14. Amit

    Brave hikers…It doesn’t matter whether it’s bandh or anything else….It’s in our blood to achieve what we want…;)

  15. Visit Nepal 2011 tourism destination

    Pranam, AhhoVaab Nischal, The NeBiSangh Nepal Student Federation affiliated to Nepali Congress irate students did not look like students, but dons, gangsters, scoipaths, evil minded people who had killing ,attacking, vandalizing intentions. Moreover , Nepal Police was with them instead of protecting nepali or foreigners , they were helping the bandh organizers. God bless you guys did not have to take help of Nepal Army in order to fight those bandh oragnizers in Nuwakot district of Nepal.
    May Visit Nepal 2011 proposed by you becomes successful unless those irate bandh organizers belonging to political, non-political parties change their course of action.

  16. Nishchal

    I had a new experience with face to face encounter with NSF Nebisangh student and Hiking during bandha time. Any way we could Hike from the reason we came for a photography session as a Nuwakot visit destination for 2011 tourism year.
