दशैं आयो खाउलापिउला ,चंगा चेट ,तास खेलौंला ,रमाइलो गरुला ,मन्दिर पनि जाउँला….
These words, when heard, make us feel that Dashain has really knocked our doors.
With the arrival of Dashain and theme of Dashain hiking, we, eleven, set out on Saturday for destination Dolalghat- a place where swift-running Indrawati embraces fiercy Bhotekoshi River and a mutual understanding is made to flow together. The place is simply beautiful when seen from natural aspect.

Pranks and jokes had made the environment quite funny inside the van. On the way, at Bhaktapur, we stopped for a while to have breakfast. We purchased kites & LATTAIs there and played dice (लंगुर बुर्जा) as well.

“भिमेश्वोरको मेला…”,”छाती मा मेरो यो छोटो भोटो …”

It was already around 3 o’ clock of afternoon when we reached our destination (for the night out)-Dolalghat. We purchased some firewood for bonfire purpose. Under the scorching sunlight, we gathered at the river bank. But we had an easy solution for the heat and sweaty feeling- just dive into the cool water of Bhotekoshi in the shallow part :) , nobody among us dared to swim in Indrawati due to its high current ;) . Some of us dived into the water and enjoyed- including myself. Kapil, SudeepB, Ravi and Deepak were busy in getting their kites high in the sky and trying to cut each other’s kites, and….चंगा चेट…Ravi came back heavyhearted with LATTAI in hands but without a kite. To make things more enjoyable, shooting of a music video was ongoing there. SudeepB and Pravinda did not miss to gaze at the lady models whenever they got a chance. Nischal even convinced them to take his photograph with the group. Side by, Kapil was posing in many styles for his photos while Shishir, Asim and Subash were enjoying the sightseeing. We played cards for a while, supported with some snacks. As it was getting darker, we made preparations for the bonfire and BBQ at the river bank. A large fire was lighted and we all encircled the fire ready for an unlimited fun. Fun part begins now. Group dance would instantaneously start in folk songs like “भिमेश्वोरको मेला…”,”छाती मा मेरो यो छोटो भोटो …”, and all would become sentimental too on gloomy songs by Suyesh in his heart touchy voice. Laughter would burst out loud at Pravinda’s visual jokes, and famous dialogue”काहे परेशान…”.
Roasted meat (sekuwa) was simply the best for BBQ.
I, as a group member, simply enjoyed every moment with even little participation and more observation.

We concluded on the hope that we can see better Nepal next morning.

Although our group’s vigor was increasing as the night was deepening, feeling of basic security made us rethink and we returned to our lodge. We had a chilly and tasty fish curry for dinner. But sill funny chitchat went on till midnight. Also we discussed on current situation of Nepal. All participants were very much upset about declination of political situation and environment of Nepal. We concluded on the hope that we can see better Nepal next morning.

Gradually, all the feelings of exhaustion wiped away by cool breeze

The next day morning, fish curry worked out badly and some of us had to suffer due to the same curry. After having a light breakfast, we decided to return to Kavre for a steep hiking to Palanchowk Bhagwati. We got off our van near Lamidanda and started our hike in the fresh morning. Gradually, all the feelings of exhaustion wiped away by cool breeze. On the way, we got a chance to pick wild guavas and amla (Gooseberry) fruit in the hill, and chance to have some saadeko Bhogatey in a locale’s house. Everybody was glad to reach Palanchowk Bhagwati during NawaRatri of Dashain festival, as people from far away come here to give their offerings to goddess during these days. We felt ourselves lucky. With flowers and offerings, we queued up in the public line to worship goddess.

After prayers, the time was around 1 afternoon, and we found ourselves very hungry. Retreat Resort, nearby, was waiting for us with their food treatment. We got there, played cards till the lunch was ready and finally had a delicious meal (daal was very special) at around 3. With the mixture of tired and light feeling (felt like we dropped the entire burden) and casting celebration of Dashain, we returned to Kathmandu.
