“Ranipawua to Sheradurbar to Indrachowk”.

-Yet another route in my list as a second hiking mission from D2.

After my first hiking, I was looking forward to such another venture. This time, I was keen to hike for a noble reason and awesome adventures that I can’t help myself stop mentioning.

I had never imagined I would enjoy the hike even without my close acquaintances though most of the time I remained “Numb” in fact “Comfortably Numb”. I must say, it was a quite a weird way to hike, leaping all the way from one terrace to another without taking the usual trail (i.e. vehicle-plying-dusty-road) and blissfully no one got their legs cramped. The journey up to Sheradurbar was enlivening, crossing the river hopping over the rocks trying to make a perfect and balanced landing and walking across the chilled n shallow Tadi River bare footed was a relief for the fatigued legs towards uphill struggle.

Then, there was a desire to see the jubilant faces of schoolchildren when they would receive the stationery materials and when that happened I thought that was an achievement. I am charmed with this work of our company.

On 14th of January, a Hiking was expected en-route to Indrachowk. There were 14 of us who went on this hike. We all gathered at the office by 7 am, and then we left at round 7:30 am.

From our office to a place called Ranipawua, we went by office van and reached there around 8:30am. From there we commenced the Hiking.

Over all the hiking can be divided into three phases. First, we climbed down for about 4 hours then we walked along the plain for 1 hour then climbed up for 1 hour and 45 minutes or nearly 2 hours.

Therefore, it was almost 7 hour of walking when we reached the Nuwakot palace. On the way, we visited Shera palace, believed that it would be beautiful when it was in one piece and now she has been destroyed and ostensible the ruined condition.
We reached palace at about 4:30pm. We all were dead tired. The palace is on the top of the hill and is very historic.

That was my first hiking from this office and I enjoyed a lot. It was well organized and managed too. I went to such kind of hiking after a long time so I enjoyed a lot. I think office is doing a great job by organizing hiking every Sunday. It is a dose of refreshment as well as we can have a great deal of knowledge about the various places and people and their life style. It is also good for their health who takes a part in hikes.

Even I was dead tired that day, but after reaching the palace, I forgot all my tiredness. From the Palace, we hired a bus and came to Ranipaua as it was impossible to walk back the same route.

All those people who went on hiking were very adventurous and friendly. Hiking made me thrilled and curious and I will definitely join the hiking team every Sunday.

    Guys, simply amazing photographs. And yes Abhishesh, even my eyes got stuck in the gal’s photo – just just amazing!!!!

  2. Luna

    Initially, I felt offended by the caption with my nose, never-the-less, I found it quite wacky and funny in the end.

    Being a Photographer is not an easy task. One needs to have a passion for capturing the moments in a click of shutter..
    Being prepared for each shot every nick of time is indeed an awe-inspiring act.
    With that, here goes my applaud for SnapShots and Captions as well. I opine, this is more like a ‘Photo Essay’, a great way to tell stories.

    Yes Justin, that picture really set a complex story, a dualiy.

    400 years old Shera? The architecture hardly looks that old. If poster has anything that backs the age, i really like to hear from you.

  4. Vish

    Raj Jee,
    We shall have the trails for you and hand it to you when you reach us. Dear thing intends itself her beauty let ourselves grave when it is available

  5. Vish

    Thanks Justin, for the Greetings! The photographer of picture was Abishesh. He himself is like the picture girl in red with different libretto. Sometime picture speaks more than words. I, myself liked the picture very much. Thank once again to those eyes that saw the portrait

  6. nishchal

    Photo speaks thousand words; Hiking has really benefited to reveal life among normal Nepali. Way to tell about Nepal, its nature and surroundings.

  7. Raj B.Thakuri

    Just for a few weeks out of the country and I am already beginning to realize how rich our country is in our natural heritage. I look forward to joining my friends among the terraced fields soon. Great pictures!

  8. Justin Morgan

    Great photos overall, but the one picture of the lone girl in red, holding her pencil and notebook, is fantastic. What duality! For such a simple photograph to tell such a complex story is truly remarkable. My compliments.
