This hiking from Naubise to Kulekhani is simply the best hiking we have ever been to. Filled with fun and laughter, beautiful landscape and deep valleys, and steep hills and gentle valleys, Oh! This hiking has its all! Lost in nature into green fields and calm water without all the electronic gadgets we have been attached to, we feel like a free soul wandering for no reason or may be many reasons are unexplainable in fact.

It all started when we all gathered together at Kanalki Chowk at 7 PM morning. Then, we all had a good time travelling a van enjoying all the beautiful scenes all along Naubise.Kapil Jokes, Jeevan’s nausea, Suyesh laughter and Nishchal’s and bhanu’s photography all made the travelling just splendid.

Leaving naubise at 9, it took us 4 hours to reach Marpa village where we had a great lunch that was real satisfying. After few hours’ drive we reached Kalanki, where we had our lunch and then we headed to our destination: Kulekhani Dam!-One of the major electricity plant of Nepal. After enjoying around the bank we headed back to Markhu where we spent our night with hysterical laughter.

In Morning with light breakfast we headed back to kalanki. While hiking in rain along the bank of reservoir we saw there was high decrease in water level that led to electricity shortage in Nepal.

This hiking was great experience for us. It was like lost in some unknown splendor that one can never be scrub out from our memory. All in all, even though we may not again have hike that we had this time, we are planning to make every hike like one, at least.

    All these things remind me my hiking to same place. There is some printing mistakes in this writing, so go thoroughly later.
    I wanna also suggest to go to same place on foot. The route is from Thankot to Chitlang then to Markhu and finally kulekhani. Try this u will thank me then.
    U can do all this in one day or if u like then one more day that’s enough to feel natural beauty near to kathmandu.

    Everyone should visit this place at least once. It’s more than beautiful. We had a blastttt!!! Most hilarious part was “bhui kada”, “hani sakyo” and obviously “kukhura chor”!
