It took 40 minutes to reach our first destination, Sundarijal. The next morning, we learned why the place was called Chisapani. We checked in Hotel Mountain view at Lapshiphedi and had our dinner.
To start off, I could barely sleep last night, not because of the hard bed but because of my excitement on an overnight outing from Deerwalk for the first time! I’ve always wanted to go and experience the fun, and I ‘was finally there! After Sandace and I picked up cakes and some important outing stuffs (as he was the organizer and he needed some help to get it), we went to the office just to realize that everyone was waiting for us to leave as we were already late. We were asked to concierge about some activities and then, we were off! It was Saturday, so the roads weren’t very crowded, which was nice, and it wasn’t a very far ride, which was double nice!
We were the last of the group and probably with the least number of people to go outing. And I am not quite sure if despite that or due to that, the so called official outing was way more fun than I ever thought it would be. The outing started with a fine afternoon at Deerwalk premises where everyone was at their wits but the degree of fun and awesomeness of the trip escalated as soon as the 18 of us got on the office bus.
Many years ago, I had a mentor while I was working at American Management Systems who took several months off from work to go trekking in Nepal. When I heard about his trip I hoped that one day I would get a chance to do the same. My chance finally came when I joined Verisk Analytics as its CIO. My visit to our office in Kathmandu would be my opportunity to experience the beautiful country of Nepal by foot.
