Fun fact about lele: It consists of temple called Tileshwor Mahadev. And legends has it that if a deaf and dump person drinks water out of the “Saraswati Kunda”, he/she will start speaking. I don’t believe in legends but just the thought of it, made the trip a lot more enjoyable.
On 7th and 8th September 2019, DWIT hiking club organized a two days hike to Helambu. A total of 16 members were selected and they were asked to gather at Deerwalk Complex at 6:30am. With full of excitement and energy, we departed from the college premises around 7:00 am.
On September 7, Saturday, the hiking club had organized a one day hike to Namo Buddha, a pilgrimage site highly esteemed by people all over the world and located about forty kilometers away from Kathmandu. There were thirty-five hikers which consisted of grade eleven, teachers and the coordinators. Our route for hiking was Dhulikhel – Namo Buddha. Since it was our first hiking, we all assembled around Deerwalk premises at 8:30 am sharp and the bus departed at about 9:00 am.
A hike for Grade XII was scheduled and organized by the hiking club on August 24, 2019. Thinking about the fun and memories we are going to make that day, we had an adrenaline rush. So, we couldn’t be late and we gathered around Deerwalk premises at 8:30 AM sharp. The bus departed at 9 AM with 20 students and 4 teachers.
The hikers assembled and the bus was set to move to our destination. It was a gloomy morning with a bit of drizzling rain but our spirits were never fazed by that. We set off from the DWIT Complex right at 7 in the morning. We bought some cucumbers and fruits while on the way. The bus stopped at Balkhu for a quick breakfast which was so tasty that everyone filled their guts with a lot of samosas and puris. Then everyone started getting in their hike zone and started preparing. We reached Taudaha and managed everything and were ready to start.
