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.
Last Saturday, I was all by myself at home resting and thinking what to do the next day. All of a sudden, I got a call from Pramod dai in the evening in which informed me about the hike with Rudra dai the day after. Since I had no plans on Sunday, I was excited about the hike. Also, it was my first hike with Rudra dai.
Good thing about living in the Kathmandu valley is that you don’t need to travel too far to enjoy the beauty of nature. After a hectic week there are so many hiking trails where we can go to refresh ourselves in the weekends around the valley. We, the new employees who joined Deerwalk in 2019 decided to go for a hike to Nagi Gumba on 3rd August 2019.
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.
On July 20, 2019 Saturday, Squad C hike was organized. This was my 2nd hike from Deerwalk and an opportunity to meet new deerwalkers. All the hikers from various squads gathered at Deerwalk Complex at around 7:30 am filled with excitement. We left the Deerwalk premises and started our journey to Jharsing Pauwa, Sankhu our hike destination. We reached to Jharsing Pauwa at around 10:00 am. We had some light breakfast and started our hike at 10:30 am.
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.
