Hiking from Thankot to Kirtipur

It was 17th March, Sunday; I was very excited from the get go as it was my first time participating in a hike organized by Deerwalk. Our very own Kanchan Raj Pandey was the hike coordinator. Including me, there were 10 participants in total for the hike. I got inside the office premises at around 6:50 am. Some of the hikers were already there while a few arrived a bit later. We left at 7:10 am and picked up the remaining participants along the way, and by 8:00 am we were at Thankot. After a short snacks break we headed out for the targeted location, Machhegaun.

Machhegaun is a village in Kathmandu District in the Bagmati Zone of central Nepal. The organizers chose a challenging route for us. The way was through a jungle, down the valley with lots of obstacles. Getting up to the hill and inside the jungle was easy, but getting out was much tougher than I had imagined. It was a steep hill with lots of dried leaves along the path. The ground was slippery and everyone had to watch their steps while holding on to branches while walking. Then there was the part with thick bushes and thorns; every member carried scars by the time we were through. Our dear friend Edward Hausman had a nasty fall at a point, but he stood up unscathed to everyone’s relief. After all those ups and downs we finally got to a more comfortable road.

We went to a small tea shop for some snacks and rest after which we continued on our hike. The road was better and it took us straight to Bhajho Chaur at Matatirtha VDC. The village was very peaceful and beautiful. On the way we passed by many traditional yet beautiful houses. We were surprised when Edward read Nepali letters on a notice board on the way.

After a long walk, we arrived at Mache Narayan Temple. We did not enter the temple and continued to walk uphill to see Lord Buddha’s Statue. The view of Kathmandu valley was very nice from atop the hill. We stayed there for a while enjoying the view and taking pictures. After a short break we climbed down, continued walking till we got to Kirtipur. By the time we got to Kirtipur it was already 3:00 pm.

Overall, it was not a long hike albeit we felt pretty tired by the end. We stopped for a lunch before heading back home. I was glad to have been a part of the hike, and I shall cherish the memories made on the day for some time to come.

  1. 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.

  2. I’m impressed, I must say. Actually rarely do you encounter a blog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you’ve got hit the nail to the head. Your notion is outstanding; the issue is an issue that not enough people are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that we found this at my look for something about it.

  3. Derma Veil ® 被喻為新世代逆齡完美輪廓塑造,最新一代的PLLA膠原。 2003年獲得Mexican Ministry of Health (SSA)認證及美國FDA出口認證,並於2006年在拉丁美洲及遠東至東南亞地區廣泛使用,多個臨床實例見證能改善老化、遺傳、疾病(如脂肪萎縮)等引起的凹陷問題,其效果備受認同。蘊含兩大活性成分均具有生物兼容性及分解性,可逐步被人體自然分解吸收,有效塑造童顏肌 : 1. 聚左乳酸 (Poly-L-lactic acid / PLLA) : 促進骨膠原生長 2. 甘醇酸(Glycolic Acid ) 使皮膚表皮層黏膠性脂質鬆軟,改善皮膚厚度,加速細胞再生,減少皺紋及疤痕,加強保濕功能,增加光澤,美白效果。 由於甘醇酸分子較小,容易滲透皮膚 治療前: 皮膚的凹陷/皺紋 治療後: 成分被人體吸收、並刺激膠原增生,撫平皺紋及凹陷部位。 注入BOTOX(保妥適)會抑制突觸前膜釋放神經遞質,阻斷乙酰膽鹼(Acetylcholine)的釋放,從而使肌肉張力下降或癱瘓麻痺,皺紋也隨之而逐漸消失。

  4. Nice reading! Hiking is an amazing outdoor activity and I love to go on hiking.I have a great past experience of hiking in Ireland. I am quite adventurous and thus going for hiking is always my first vacation choice.
