Saturday, March 16, 2019 was the most memorable day of my life. As we (Squad B) planned to go for hike just 3 days earlier. It was really a great experience with new team. Our journey started from Deerwalk. It was my first hike at Deerwalk which gives me a memory and opportunity to be familiar with my new friends . We decide to leave at 8 am sharp but due to some circumstances we get late so, we leave at 8:30. We had our lunch at Bypass, Balaju around 10 am. And we move towards our destination.
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.
Thanking the weather for being good, despite the forecast of heavy rain on 16 February, Saturday, we gathered in Deerwalk complex at 10:30 am. We all had been waiting for this day since months and were very excited. 22 people including me along with our 3 teachers, headed by bus towards our first destination, Markhu.
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.
