Excited about hiking, I woke up at 4.45 am in the morning but more interesting was that I had already finished hiking in my dreams. We (I, Rina and Asim) were picked up by office van at Singhadarbar at around 7.45 am. After having breakfast, we headed towards our destination and started hiking from Sanga at 9 am. Walking through fields, making our own way across the highs and lows of mountains, visiting temples, barking dogs, being in different group and making new friends was a unique experience in itself.
On the way, we visited Ganesh Ma. Vi (School) at Tathali ( Bhaktapur) and handed some copies and pencils among lower grades students of the school. Asking the local people over there, we corrected our way. Among the pine trees, we had some snacks as well as some snaps: P (especially ever ready pose of Mamata, Bidha and Rina). Pointing towards the tower, we were saying that, that is our destination, that seemed so FAR, so many mountains in between but we were destined to move ahead no matter what. We got splitted in two groups heading in two different directions but towards the same destination i.e TOWER of Nagarkot. I was so tired and had gone to extreme low, thanks to the moral support of Rina, Keshav, Dhilung, Mamata, Bidha & Sanjit, I got fully energized once again. On the way, we met a woman of KalamMashi village, she was taking grasses in “doko” to her home. I felt that life is still as difficult as I used to hear earlier. Schools are not fully equipped by modern facilities, but the zeal of students to study and teachers’ to teach is praiseworthy.
Fascinated by the beauty of nature, I wished I could stay there forever. Something that has always attracted me: the mountains, those scenes, the wind, the terrace fields, etc …” I was among them”… It was really really fabulous!!! Finally, we had our candle light dinner in Nagarkot (thanx to loadshedding: P) and Vishnu’s love story made it even more enjoyable: P.
Though I preferred to talk less (unlikely to my talkative nature), the overall journey was really nice which gave me the CONFIDENCE that I TOO CAN WALK for such long hours across the mountains. Scarcity of diesel & petrol did affect me too, office van couldn’t drop us at home and it was so difficult to find taxi too, thanks to my brother who picked me up and I finally reached home at around 9 pm.
