All of us headed towards Namobuddha enjoying the pleasant weather along with our friend’s company. As being the season of crop harvesting, the fields there seemed as if they were painted in green which really soothed our eyes. The rainfall of previous night cleared the weather and also cooled down the temperature which helped us to pick up pace during the start of our Hike. We walked through the pine forest till noon. After much tiring walk, we had our snacks break. We resumed the hike after having our snacks and reached Namobuddha at 2pm.

Upon reaching Namobuddha, we clicked pictures and worshipped the temples present there. We enjoyed there for about an hour and headed back to our start point. It took us around 20 min to reach there. Thus, our epic hike ended with a good dinner at around 6pm.

In a nutshell, We had a very wonderful and memorable hike which we will cherish for a lifetime.

Kathmandu to Dolalghat

A beautiful place to be, Dolalghat offers the magnificent views of the snowcapped mountains at the back while the front is adorned with comparatively shorter hills. The river and the wide shore on one side of it allow the visitors and the excited picnickers to relax and enjoy its beauty and peace or play in the sand like crazies.

People come to Dolalghat for various purposes. Some come with their families and close friends to enjoy the peace and freshness away from the crowd of the cities while there are others who come here to get wild and crazy with their friends. The place also has the visitors who come here alone to spend some time for themselves seeking solitude and relaxing in its quiet and peacefulness.

However, some careless visitors tend to throw the beer bottles into the river, breaking it into the pieces and polluting the river as well as the shore. Nevertheless, if you are careful while you walk along the shore and into the water, the experience of being in Dolalghat is wonderful. It also has restaurants and lodges to cater to your needs and demands.

Mainly, we 9 friends went to dolalghat for swimming it take 3 hour to reached dolalghat via bike ride. It is wonderful

Kathmandu to jhor

As per our plan we were going to Jhor for learning to ride a bike. I got up early in the morning around 7 took bath washed my uniform, then I called my friend to get ready. He was sleeping and told me that he would call me as he gets up. I finished my work and then I called him he said he was getting ready . We had lunch and he came to my home .We left out with our bike for Jhor around 10:30 A.M. We showed our bike to a nearby workshop either it was in condition or not. After checking the scooty we went to ATM to withdraw money, after taking out money we headed towards Tokha .

Road was clear and less busy due to strike called off by Public Transportation Association .We were thinking of fueling the bike but we did’ not get the petrol as it was all shortage due to some reason. We headed towards Tokha. Road was not so good it was dirty and muddy .But we were enjoying the ride. Around 11:00 A.M we reached Tokha bazar then we moved downwards a road with wide space, black topped road and less busy. As the road was favorable I started riding the sccoty. It was so fun and interesting. Road was good enough than the busy road of Kathmandu. The side scene was good. All greenery, rice plantation in all fields totally looked awesome .The view of KTM was also breath-taking. Road was open and flow of vehicle was also low so I rided bike. On the way we saw a group of middle aged man cycling to Jhor. We reached Jhor around 11:30A.M.

We returned back and rested for 10 minutes on the road. Then on the way to the waterfall there was a small type of resort offering local food. So we decided to have some food as we were hungry walking up and down to the waterfall. So we went into the resort and took rest for 5 to 10 minutes and ordered for the food. We ordered noodles with eggs and cold drinks. We talked about our jobs and friend until the noodle was served on the table .As it was a fast food the noodles was served within 10 minutes. We had the noodles it was really good. We talked to the staff of the same resort about the place and it’s business, he was very friendly .And then we decided to return to our homes .Before getting back I had the desire to get wet under the water fall but my friend suggested me to play in the waterfall next time when we would go there with all of the preparations (extra clothes).

Anyways trip to Jhor was wonderful and I must say Jhor is bestowed with natural beauty .It could be a tourist destination for the foreigners visiting Kathmandu. We should make publicity of Jhor to bring this place in the sight of foreigners and people involved in the tourism sector which could boost-up the economic level of people of Jhor. Last but not the least I must thank my friend for his precious time and wonderful company .It was a day to remember and cherish in the future.

We reached Dakshinkali at around 8:30 am from where our hike officially started. We followed the steep road in order to get to the hill that lead to Champadevi. After consulting with some locals we found the base of the hill and started to move along. On the way we found a berry tree where we stopped for some berries and cucumber for refreshment.

After a round of fresh cucumbers and berries we moved along. The hill was really steep and with the scorching sun as our companion, it was a real challenge. But the toughest part was still waiting for us. Somewhere in middle of the hike we lost our way so we had to make our own way and the struggle was very real. But the most amazing part was no matter how tired and lost we were, the one thing that kept us moving was the spirit to reach the top no matter the challenges and obviously the bonding of the participants.

Finally after a 5 hour long hike through the forests of the steep hill, we reached our destination, the Champadevi temple at 1:30. Our happiness knew no bounds and the breathtaking scene ahead us washed away all our tiredness and refilled ourselves with energy to continue to the down side of the hill.
At 4:30 in the evening we reached to the base of the hill and continued our way to the road side where our bus was waiting for us. A delicious thakali dinner at Lete Thakali Kitchen marked the end of our hike that was filled with new experiences and lots of memories.
