The morning was cool when we stepped off the bus and stretched our legs. Our hike was to start and begin at a resort in (start place). At a restaurant, we loaded our back packs with water bottles while the talking lightly and musing of the journey ahead. The journey had been short: only an hour. Our group had assembled at the Deerwalk complex for breakfast before boarding the bus and setting off. We had pulled into the resort at around 10:00.
The QA team of Deerwalk had organized this particular hiking expedition around the north-eastern outskirts of the Kathmandu Valley. We had planned to hike around the Namo Budhha area but a last minute change of plans saw us embarking on this moderately tough hike. We disembarked the van at Kharipati which lies on the way to Nagarkot and started climbing along the foot trails.
