Hiking is fun, and when the destination is Pokhara, the FUN gets multiplied by 3. 8th March, 2014 was different for me from other Saturdays. Waking up at 5 in the morning was what made it different. Winter seemed to have ended in Kathmandu, the morning was not cold, but just cool.
Not even a few days after the New Year 2013, and on Jan 5 the Deerwalk Services team were off for their “team building” outing to one of the most popular destination of Nepal, Sarangkot. Everyone was at the office premises by 7 am. We had made up our minds to make the drive as interesting as the outing itself. Our team was really excited to reach Sarangkot and make the best of the team building program. Guys enjoyed every single moment inside the van singing and making pranks.
Hiking for me has never been an enjoyable experience. It’s just a thing I feel like I need to do along the way so I don’t feel lazy. The reality of it is that hiking is a test of whether or not I can drag my unfit body up a mountain or across a field without hyperventilating or falling down. We weren’t sore, it was easy on the legs and knees, and it’s probably easier than hiking. The whole experience was really great and one I want to repeat it often!
