“If you want to explore places, then walk”.

We gathered at Deerwalk office premises at around 7 am and moved towards Panauti, our start point for hike. On our way we were stopped for a while because of road blockade. We reached Panauti at around 8:30 am where we had some breakfast. After breakfast we moved and reached Khopasi dam from where we started our hike.
We took our bags, water bottles and started our hike making our way through the muddy and slippery way. Passing on through the swinging bridges and having natural sceneries around us, we moved on.

After around 40 minutes of hike, we found a small shop where we stopped to have some cucumber with salt and pepper to add some strength for hike. It was quite tasty.

We continued walking through the small village roads. Going down through one hill and again making our way up the other was quite tiresome but cracking jokes and making fun of each other made us forget those tiredness. Sandeep’s song with random lyrics might be still echoing in those hills. Nearly at 11 am we reached Balthali Eco Hill resort where we had our tasty lunch. After resting for a while we continued our hike again. Up to resort we knew our way, but from there we all only do have name of our destination “Namo Buddha”. We asked locals for the way and moved on. While making our way through the corn fields, we took the wrong turn. A local helped us find the right way but was through the river. We got our shoes off and crossed the river. We slipped in river while making our way through. Many of us had relaxing swim in the river too.

Again we continued and found our way much tougher. Walking through the steep hills at noon was quite difficult. We stopped for a while, had a good breath and made random gossips, jokes. With help of locals we continued our hike. Again through corn fields and forest ways we reached the place from where we could find glimpse of Namobuddha hill. It was quite relaxing to see our destination nearby after such a long hike. We wandered around Namo Buddha Monastery for some time. It was almost 5 in evening when we had our snacks.

At about 6 pm we headed back to Kathmandu. As a whole it was a good hike with all those jokes, fun, tiredness and unforgettable memories.

Once a wise man said, “Every moment is the paradox of now or never”. If you cannot enjoy the moment when you have it, it’s gone. Our hike can be related to this quote. It had just finished raining, the sun was peeping through the clouds, the weather was Fanta-bolous for a travel.

We reached office early on Saturday, added water bottles and some snacks to our bag packs and headed South-East to Panauti, a town that I had visited only once during a once in a twelve year Makar Mela, so I was a little bit excited. We reached Panauti bus station at about 9, had some breakfast to pump us up and started walking.

I was in my photo-taking duty, and I fulfilled my duty to the fullest. My gallery was full of selfies, wefies, panoramas, solos,etc.

I was in my photo-taking duty, and I fulfilled my duty to the fullest. My gallery was full of selfies, wefies, panoramas, solos,etc. Subash Kunwar’s jokes and Sandeep Lamichanne’s songs were entertaining us from the start. After walking for about an hour, we stopped at Balthali Eco Hill Resort for lunch, took rest for half an hour and started walking again.

Thanks to our hike coordinator, we were out of the route and had to find our way through corn fields. But it was even more exciting, at one point we had to walk on a small river. The water was clean, cold and refreshing, so we could not help but get into the river for a little while.

It was almost 3 pm, and we had to get to our destination on time. We had lost our way, but thanks to one of the locals, he showed us the way to get to our initial route. It took us three more hours to reach Namo Buddha. When we reached Namo Buddha, we were tired as hell, after all we walked past 3 hills, 5 suspension bridges and many corn fields. It was drizzling a little bit just to cool us off. All of us were tired, but the tiredness was worthwhile to breathe in fresh air, enjoy the nature and company of awesome squad mates. I am grateful towards Deerwalk to include me in this hike and I can’t wait for the next one.

  26. 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.
