We started our hike from Thankot and started walking uphill. On the way, the road was blocked due to landslide. As a result there were no alternatives to go there so we had to cross that path climbing the rock which made the hiking more adventurous.
The excitement of my weekend schedule, which would include a hiking to Kakani and camping overnight, kept me from going to bed peacefully on Friday night. I was restless the entire night. Even though it was Saturday, I got out of my bed at 5am the next morning. It was still quite dark outside, but I was ready and waiting for the office vehicle to pick me up by 5:45. While waiting I could see the morning getting brighter. After a bit of a wait, the vehicle finally arrived and I got in.
The club has decided to organize an almost three day’s hike to Kalinchowk, a place painted all in white. So I was very pleased that I was selected for the hike. I packed my bags and went to college early in the morning. We boarded the bus and left the college premises as early as possible.
The day had finally arrived. All of us were very eager and excited as we gathered inside the Deerwalk complex to commence our hike to Okhreni.The plan for the hike was decided a couple of days earlier and the final list of hikers was finalised by the evening a day later. I joined the hike as I believed it was a great opportunity to experience an adventure into the wild.
This was the second hike I attended here in DWIT. There were total of 17 hikers and all the hikers gathered at the Deerwalk complex at 6:30 am. We left the complex at 7:00 am via college bus.
If you are interested in a short hike around the valley but don’t have any experience regarding it, then Champadevi Hike is what I’d suggest you to get started with. You’d get the desired scenic view with calm environment, without feeling like you are not going to complete the hike and might not even make it. Champadevi offers a great view of the valley and with right companions, you’d have a great time hiking uphill.
Within the few days of my consolidation to Deerwalk Sifal School, I was very much lucky to join the trip to Kalinchowk. I was pretty excited when I had come to know about the trip. It had been a great opportunity for me to join this trip as it was my chance to know the Deerwalk personnels.
This was my first two days hike and I was quite excited about it since early morning. We all gathered at Deerwalk complex around 6:45 am. There were total of 13 hikers. After the arrival of all the members, we headed towards Daman by our college van drove by friendly Suman dai. On our way to Daman, we stopped at Naubise to have breakfast. After having our breakfast, journey from Naubise to Daman started.
19th jan was set to be the first day that the newly hired guys and girls, along with the established and experienced crew, were to be taken out for a hike. The hike was from Kakani to Jhor Mahankal with half of the trail included in the Shivapuri-Nagarjun national park. Although the route was not far from any of our homes, it was sure a memorable one. Our journey started from the office campus, gathering most of us there itself and travelling in our office’s micro-bus towards Kakani, Nuwakot.
Ahh!! 2018!! That ended up giving me first time experiences of everything that I had never thought of whether that will be happening at some stage of my life or not. Well, nevertheless 2019, to be more specific early 2019, had already started surprising me and I hope it will not stop to keep on surprising me ;). The first surprise of 2019 was the hike with Rudra dai,team and Kei. Kei, sales manager of Deerwalk Japan Ltd was here in Nepal for a week, it was his first visit to Nepal.
