Hiking from Bhardev to Lamidanda

Participants: Surendra, SharadP, Pankaj(guest), Chiranjib (FT), KumarK (FT), Vikshnu, KundanK and RiteshK Route: Bhardev to Lamidanda Date: Sunday, Sept 16, 2007 Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes Trip Doom: 11-Kilo meters Report: KumarK and ChiranjibK Photo: SharadP & Surendra Creative Support: NishchalS KumarK A busy Saturday, followed by a hike on Sunday, I dragged myself out of the bed early morning and reached office at around 6:45. This was going to be my first hike from D2 and I didn’t want to be late. We left office at around 7:30 and picked up Surendra, Kundan and Ritesh on the way. We had our breakfast at the Bakery Café in Jawalakhel and headed towards Lamadanda. The 1 and ½ hrs drive to Lamadanda wasn’t all that bad despite the fact that road was in pretty bad shape. This was mainly due to Vishnu’s witty comments and hilarious conversation between Vishnu, Kundan , Surendra and Sharad. We started our hike at around 10:00, with Vishnu making sure that we do not mistakenly take the easy route. The hike wasn’t too tough, but wasn’t smooth sailing either. We didn’t know the exact route and relied on Vishnu and Surendra’s experiences to find the way. Surendra’s occasional warnings on leeches, invariably followed by stories of ‘leech-attacks’ on previous hikes kept us charged up all along. The initial easiness of the hike was later made tougher by the slippery trails and extremely steep climbs. After two hours climb, and about half an hour of descent, we reached the farm-house of an ex-minister, which we thought ended our hike. But Vishnu had other plans and decided to take us for a final spin. He chose the steepest possible way down to the road and many of us had to crawl on our way down. But once we made it to the Van, remembering the whole hike gave us a sense of achievement. On our way back, we had our lunch at Jawalakhel. Amazingly enough, I wasn’t feeling all that tired. Maybe because the fun was worth the pain or maybe because getting close to Mother Nature simply rejuvenates your senses so you feel no pain but surely something to gain. ChiranjibK When I read about Hiking in EU first time ,I always used to get scared of thinking about the long journey to be covered by walk, in up and downs of hill. I used to think why the people are interested in hiking so much? What do they get of that? But Vishnu helped me to solve that puzzle by inviting me to hike last Sunday. Believe me that was real fun for us. We were eight including a friend of mine from outside D2. After one and half hour of drive we reach to the base of Lamidanda and after two long hour of climbing the hill we reached the farm house of “Keshar Bahadur Bisht”.In meantime we found a small temple where we relaxed for some time, got some snaps and resumed our interesting hiking again. While hiking, superb joke’s of our oldie bros used to refresh us all the time. I must thank Vishnu who encouraged me to participate in such a beautiful event and I wish I would always get such an opportunity on coming days.
