It was a walk to remember, just because of how much fun it was. One of the more sedate trails that you would have, Telkot-Nagarkot hike still basks in the opulence that is Nepal. As the valley of Kathmandu starts looking green, you keep wondering what could have been. Jo Anne’s first visit to Nepal had us take her there! Next year, we go higher, and farther! Jo Anne Hunt — “On Sunday I had a chance of a lifetime to go hiking with experts. I knew it was going to be a challenge even though I was assured it was going to be “an easy one”. “
The early morning was damp and gloomy, and it was not until the sun shone through that we were hopeful of doing our mystery climb. Reminiscing about older times, and going back and forth about destinations, we had Rudra Dai join us. Finally we were to hike to Nagarkot from Dhulikhel.
It was 9:15 AM when we reached Dhulikhel and we had a quick breakfast at the D Newa Kitchen. After that, it was time for the Deerwalkers to walk up towards the hilltop near Taludada, Dhulikhel. That part of our walk was interesting and easy going. At the Rotary Club, we then began to take on the heights. Around 10:30 we reached the place and rested for a while.
