Chill morning of Sunday, 25 of September, we could feel the climate approaching for next winter season. To keep warm and fit ourselves and for the purpose to set journey on track we started to gather one by one at office. As soon as Mohana arrived like morning glory to boost up team spirit, she began herselves to make a cup of tea for everyone. With fresh hot touch of tea, we jumped into a micro van to proceed towards Lubu at 7:00.

When we reached Lubu we could observe the place slowly transforming its old fashion into new.
Interrogating with local folks of Lubu about the way to Lakuri Bhanjyang, we gradually began our course. The course went through expanse matured rice field, the greenery of the field was as a enticer to appease to our cries, captivating us more as we proceed further.

Along this lull of an hour of walking, we arrived at a place called Lamatar where the Shubatara School was established very nicely on a slanting hill. By passing this school, we approached appealing natural beauty that was leading us to Lakuri Bhanjyang. Before reaching lakuri Bhanjyang we came across an assets of nature, whose charm could not be put in black and white. With the walk in a beatific surrounding for next two and half an hours we arrived at Lakuri Bhanjyang (1 Km away from the Tented Camp site), in there we had a cup of tea and some cookies (good one), which was brought by Mohana along with munching stuffs brought by others and that was the brunch.

We ascended a gentle steep hill for few minutes and within next 30 minutes, we happened to be found ourselves at such a place, from where we observed Kathmandu valley at a angle showing us unrevealed charm. After the glance of lasting beauty, we moved ahead and reached the Chapakharka Primary School at Bishankhunarayan at Chapakharka, Lalitpur, where we rested for 10 minutes and had a chat with local young guys in school ground. From this point, we had to descend to Godawari, when we commenced to move down we could see Godawari beneath a green umbrella of nature. Moving ahead to meet Godawari under the umbrella we climbed down for one and an half hours and, finally we were sitting out side of the small restaurant and were having some refreshment facing towards the green brolly, not easy to forget the marks that has taken the place in pages of our memory.

At the end, appreciation should be contributed to Mohana and Rinku for their sustained courage and zest through out excursion and must be obliged to Sangeeta for lending a helping hand for Mohana when she needed. In addition to that, Rashmi should be acknowledging for standing by patiently along with Sangeeta.

Lastly but not the least supportive Bhaskar was always there and Rudra encouragement should be recognized as a driving force to complete our journey with the calmness of Govinda and Rajendra.

As the day went to an end, the radiant smiles on the faces of participants told us that the more places we reach the more smiles we deliver.
