Hiking from Okharpauwa to Thuldanda

Surendra Adhikari, our host, took us to his home town village, near Okharpauwa. He provided us with the best accommodation in his own parental home. The caretakers of his house, Kanchha and his family, were more than generous with their time and effort. Surendra was looking to provide a little more spice to our hike. Rather than walking via an unpaved road that was wide, he decided to take us down a path a little less travelled. It was a path created by a small stream that had dried up. The walk was tight and since I had a rucksack on my bag, the low hanging branches kept on pulling me behind. It was tough while it lasted but was a memorable experience afterwards. I also had the opportunity to walk with Surendra and the DWIT students all the way to Kakani the next day.

Trekking to Gosaikunda – from Dhunche to Gul Bhanjyang

Trekking to Gosaikunda - from Dhunche to Gul BhanjyangWriting a travelogue has never been easy for me because, as soon as I clutch a pen, I find myself in a dilemma- what should I write about? In the objectivity of space and time, should I portray the characters that I met, the events that occurred, and the sceneries that I saw? Or should I delineate the whirlwinds that I so intimately felt, being submerged in total subjectivity? That is, should I write a story or a poem? In the depth of bliss, poetry is what I write. Therefore, O friends, come and listen to my poetry of the North interspersed with a story.

Hiking from Telkot to Nagarkot

After a short walk, we reached the premises of Nagarkot tower. As it was Saturday, the tower was overcrowded. Some were there for picnic, some were enjoying the view taking photographs from the top; while others were busy climbing up and down the tower. We sat there for some time. Cool breeze was blowing, it was wonderful. We could see the Himalayas behind the clouds. The sky was not so clear though. We returned back from there and entered a restaurant to have our lunch. After having lunch, we headed back home.

Hiking from Godavari to Lakuri Bhanjyang

Lakure Bhanjyang, or Lakuri Bhanjyang as some call it, is a scenic hiking route about 10 Kilometers from Kathmandu. The trail is not extra-ordinary in any manner for a country packed with 8 thousand meter mountains and uncountable others that stand more than 4 thousand meters tall. Compare those to the highest point we reached during the hike, which must have been around 3,000 odd meters and, you will see why we didn’t bother to get the exact number. And then again we have traveled through it so many times that we have started remembering good spots to take breaks and relieve ourselves.
