It all began with excitement as I was going to Pokhara after more than twenty years. Our hiking team – ManishS, KanchanP, SulekhaB, SubashN, ShakunS, JeevanT, AshayT, ArjunA, ShushilS, SangeetaM, SurendraA, and PrativaS – were picked up early in the morning at 6:30 AM. It was a long drive as we all had anticipated. We reached Naubise at 9:30 AM, and we stopped by Banepali Hotel for breakfast. Then we continued on our way. Some time later we made another stop to buy some watermelons to refresh ourselves.

Another, undetermined, where the final destination is not set. I specially like the second one as I like to wander. Such hiking surprises my life and I feel so much blessed.
