Finally, I could find myself free for the day which I was waiting for since I joined D2 and that is non-other than the HIKING DAY. As hiking and wandering around the untouched areas has been one of my charm
Upon reaching Hnuman Bhanjyang, we stopped by a small shop to refresh ourselves. “Fanta” never tasted so good. This place was the border between Makawanpur and Bagmati districts. After about 10 minutes of rest, the journey continued. Vishnu and Surendra seemed to get confused about the path we are supposed to go, so discussion in that topic was also fun. Now we were walking through the graveled road. Heat, dust and difficult road, all were challenging us but we were now used to it and were busy enjoying every bit of our walk. Kapil’s humorous gossips and “beeeeessssst…” brought smile on everyone’s face even in such circumstances.
Beautiful pictures of mountains, silhouettes of pine trees, wild flowers, jolly children, hiking trails and happy hikers:
Looking these photographs of hiking in this blog, I guess most of us feel the urge to go hiking. But the love for cozy Sunday mornings in bed and busy schedules make us put off hiking plans for coming weeks.
Even though it was my first Sunday at D2, I joined the Hiking Team with the inspiration of Surendra and my own determination and excitement. Almost all the other hikers were unknown to me but I easily became closer to them.
If you are looking for a workout, hiking offers an opportunity to break a sweat. The level of excursion, however, might not be as high as most other exercises. Regardless of the exercise element, the mental health benefits of hiking are well noted.
Changu Narayan is a pagoda-style Hindu temple dedicated to Vishnu in his incarnation as Narayan. It is one of the oldest temples in Nepal, but because it is a bit off the beaten track, it is seldom visited by tourists.
