A day hike was organized by the Hiking club of DSS+2 on November 16, 2019, for Grade XII students. As per the plan, our hike started from Panauti passing through Naya Gaon to Phulchowki and down to Godawari. Everyone was instructed to gather in the Deerwalk Complex by 7:20 am sharp. Our bus left the premises at 8 am with 19 students and 2 teachers.
On the 20th of October, 2019 DWIT hiking club conducted a one-day hike to Nagarkot . A total of 17 selected hikers assembled on DWIT grounds to get ready for the adventurous journey to Nagarkot. All of us gathered around DWIT ground around 6:30 am and left the premises at 7 am. Enjoying every moment on the way, we reached Jarsing Pauwa at around 8:30 am where we enjoyed a wholesome breakfast which obviously boosted our energy to another level. Then all of us got ready for hike. Before starting our hike we had a group photo which was undoubtedly amazing.
On September 14, we set out for a hike to Simba Falls. All of us gathered at Deerwalk premises by 7:15 in the morning. At around 7:30, we started our journey. By 8:30 we were already at the Lele Buspark. We had some breakfast in a local eatery. It was drizzling a little while we started traveling through the bumpy and slippery road. After four hours of a long ride, we finally reached the starting point of our hike: Gotikhel, which was somewhere between Bhardev and Manikhel. The sun shined brilliantly, and the weather was just right for the hike.
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.
With the excitement and expectation to witness the panoramas of Gaurishankar, Langtang, Ganesh, Annapurna and their wide ranges, We met at Deerwalk premises at 7:45 am. We gathered notebooks, pencils and filled water on our deerwalk bottles. Then we left for Tokha at approximately 8:10 am. We had planned to start hike from Tokha. So we went on micro till Tokha. The hike was quite exploratory as we had no idea how breakfast would be around Jagat Buspark. We had breakfast near Tokha (I recommended not to rely on breakfast near Jagat Buspark. ) and started our hike.
The hike was set to start at 7AM sharp, the heat wave of the summer was leaving us and it was a pleasantly cool day with hints of unnoticeable droplets of rain. Kapil dai had concocted a shrewd plan to make the latecomer be the one to document the event of the day, and needless to say, I was the one who got the low end of the stick. The ensemble of hikers also included 2 guests from the American embassy Mike Mussi and Bruce Keen along with few of us deerwalkers left the premises of Deerwalk off to Changunarayan, around 7:15. On the way we picked up Kamal at Baneshwor and Jeevan dai at Pepsicola(technically Jeevan dai was the last to arrive, so he should be writing this reports, but semantics).
Our hike started with some group selfies and cheerful laughters. We stopped at Dhulikhel for breakfast, where we met Kanchi, a jovial four months old Boxer. We instantly fell in love with her. From New Horizon resort we started our journey. My motto for any hike is, “Always walk ahead so that you will have plenty of time to rest and enjoy the view while the rest of the group catch up.” So I walked ahead.
Our hike started great. Everybody was on time as we had planned. We left the office at around 7:30. We decided to stop for breakfast at chobar. After half an hour we left chobar and towards Dakshinkali. From Dakshinkali there were two paths that reached sisneri.
“STOP WORRYING ABOUT THE POTHOLES IN THE ROAD AND JUST ENJOY THE JOURNEY” that’s what I said to myself when we reached Kalanki. Little did we know that this is going to be one of those memories that will send chills down our spine whenever we think about it. On August 24, 2019, I, Pratiksha, and Roshan left Deerwalk Complex at around 8 AM to start our fun-filled two days hike to Bandipur. Before this gets misinterpreted, we were supposed to pick up the rest of the hikers Susan, Utsuk, Sujan, Smriti, Roshan, and Sumit on our way. We had with us musicians and musical instruments, singers and songs, and lots of snacks for the journey.
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.
