Two days would obviously be an exciting trip. This time we did the same through ‘Revisiting Kulekhani’ trip. As it was my first trip to Kulekhani, I was quite curious about the place. This is because of the current situation of Load Shedding and of course the name ‘Kulekhani’ is popular due to the decrement of water level in it. Besides these the widely talked about delicious fish and swimming experience of the past trip made me excited to be a part of it.

Twelve of us left Kathmandu through Nagdhunga by making commitment to follow the rules and regulations of the trip as per one of our members decision. We agreed and started making jokes and singing famous Nepalese songs. All teammates joined in, making the atmosphere livelier. We use a popular “THEGO” as “HASAUNCHA BUDA LE” throughout the trip. After reaching Naubise,we had a heavy lunch in the same hotel as we used to have breakfast earlier.

After having beautiful snapshots on the way, we reached a place called Markhu approx at 4 PM. We tried to stay at the same lodge that we had during last trip, but couldn’t and the reason behind was the ongoing SLC examination. People are facing hard time during SLC exam there. The entire lodge was full of SLC Students, as they have to come across long distance just to attend exam. Some of our friends also thought of staying outside and to play cards if we had brought tent. A prompt Question arose, “how to play card if there is no light”. We got a funny answer “Play Blind”!

After couple of hours walk we finally got one lodge at a place called Kalanki, We booked 3 rooms and returned back to Markhu with fishes, snacks and drinks. Few of us enjoyed photography, others busy beholding nature. We also met another group who were enjoying their picnic at the same place. We formed two teams and enjoyed a competitive match during this football festival of our office. It was a good experience with air filled plastic ball and slippery ground. All of us were tired and then we had a light meal. We enjoyed food in different styles and posed a bit at the bank of the river, some in the natural stream. We finally danced to the famous song “Rato Rani Fulejhai Sanjha ma…” which was the most unforgettable event of this trip. We stayed at Kalanki that night, having our tummies filled with dinner. Few of us played cards, few enjoyed the photos that we took at day time and finally completed the first day of the trip.

At the crack of dawn next day, we went to the descend towards Kulekhani DAM. We saw the actual level of the water there, analyzed the reason and predicted the solution. We enjoyed there by boating, stone throwing and having photo sessions for almost two hours. After that we climbed uphill towards Kalanki. After a few hours drive, we reached a place where we had fun swimming and gossiping with locals, watching traditional ‘ghattas’ and finally got safely back to Kathmandu on time.
