After 3 months of continuous hard work and dedication, we newly born Deerwalk Auto Services entire team decided to plan a team-building hiking campaign. As we know, in Kathmandu valley major hiking trail is within 10 km, just we need to do is pick a direction and move on. In every direction of the valley, you will be overwhelmed by the bewilderment of nature. So it was not so tough job to choose our destination. Therefore, we decided to go for a hike to Mulkharka on 6th of July, 2019. Since it was our first hiking with this team so we all were motivated and reached Deerwalk Complex premises before time.
Balthali turned out to be the best day outing destination for us. The village rests in a plateau with terraced rice fields, beautifully blooming wildflowers, tall pine forests, and traditional houses. The vistas unfold into a charismatic scenario, like a confluence of the heaven and the earth.
Doesn’t matter where you are in Kathmandu, a hike worthy trail is within 10 km. Pick a direction and move on. You will be dazzled by the enigma nature has to offer. So, one doesn’t need much motivation to get going. Therefore, we decided to go for a hike to Bishnudwar on 25th of May, 2019.
With the cloudy environment and the heavy rainfall from the early morning it seemed the hike wouldn’t be made out but with the courage and determination it was explored with beautiful moments.
On May 18th, Saturday, all hikers gathered at Deerwalk complex as planned. All hikers gathered at 6 in the morning and we left the office premises by 6:30. Our first stopping station was Dhulikhel. Reaching Dhulikhel took us about an hour where we had our breakfast.
This was my very first 2 days hiking since joining Deerwalk and I was blessed with this opportunity to coordinate my colleagues over the 2 day period. Sending out participation email, selecting the hikers and managing transportation over the previous 3 days period had already provoked a certain sense of responsibility as well as excitement in me.
On 27th and 28th of April Hiking club organized two days hike to Bandipur. There were a lot
of applicants willing to go for hiking. Among all 16 of us were selected. The journey started at 7 in the morning when everyone gathered in the college.
The plan was set, and the route was decided. The office van moved from Deerwalk premises at exactly 7 AM. Half of the hikers arrived at DWS premises and the rest were to be picked up on the way to Taudaha. The plan was to hike from Taudaha to Champadevi via Bosan. It was very interesting hiking because of the company.
On 1st March, DWIT Hiking Club had organized one day hike to Sisneri, a beautiful destination 37km south from DWIT. Seventeen hikers were selected and were asked to reach college at 6:15 am and by 7 am we were all set and the journey for Sisneri began.
The excitement of my weekend schedule, which would include two-day hike to Kakani, kept me from going to bed peacefully on Friday night. We all gathered around Deerwalk at 8:30 am, where we loaded all the necessary supplies in the vehicle and got ready to move out.
Our planned hiking route was from Gurje Bhanjyang to Kakani for the first day. We set off from Deerwalk in the office vehicle at 9 am. On our way, we stopped by a place to have a little breakfast before the hike.
