Day 1 of our Khasa visit:
Usually I don’t prefer two days hiking, but this time when I got the hiking invitition mail, it did get in a dilemma whether to join the team or not as I have never been to Khasa and wanted to visit that place since really long. So I ultimately decided to participate.

Though we had decided to leave office premises by 7 AM, when I along with Pallavi reached there, only Bimal was there. It automatically came to me, after all we are Nepalese and when we will get rid of Nepali Time culture. After some time, one after another started showing up and finally at around 8 we could head towards our destination to the foreign land of Khasa.

On the way, some tried to make fun with singing and sharing jokes whils I was just enjoying the beautiful roadside landscape of which my eyes will never get tired of exploring.

After six hours of journey, we finally reached China border, left our van there and headed towards Miteri pool, my first step in a land of People’s Republic. We took a local van from China border; this time our destination was Khasa. The right hand drive there was really confusing. If I were to drive, we would surely have met multiple number of accidents. we reached Khasa at around 4:30 PM, confused with the time zone (Was it 4.30 of Nepal or that of China). Then we booked few rooms in a local hotel, had some rest, and then started to hang around Khasa Bazaar. I was really surprised to see Chinese government’s effort to build such a town in that stiff hill; It shows that if you really want something and go for it, then you can even build a castle of sand. In Khasa we spend half of night by playing cards, some went to Disco and I was with my friend, forever friend “MuZic”.

Day 2 of our Khasa visit:
After having breakfast, we left Khasa bazaar, headed back to the border walking all the way, stopping here n there to take some pictures for memory. Well to tell you people something, a trip to Khasa would almost be incomplete without doing some shopping. All of us spontaneously scattered at a shopping mall near Nepali border and started scanning every single shop there. In no time everybody was busy looking for some “Chinese goods”- mobile phone(boy o’ boy… which brand of mobile would you not find there, Ch-Iphone, flip phones, Noklas, TV-phone… you name it.. and they have it there), blankets and rugs, Ipod, pendrives… When we checked out, everybody was loaded with their shopping stuffs. We literally ran out of seats in the vehicle just to fit the rugs only. Eventually we managed the space and headed back from the journey, to the country, the country with 16 Hrs of load shading, the country which has democracy without discipline but in the end its my country & I love this country, Nepal.
