Garima Bhandari,


We gathered together at 8 AM in the morning and started our journey. Our initial destination was the Changu Narayan Temple, a sacred site devoted to Lord Vishnu in Hinduism. We saw the beautiful designs and felt the calm atmosphere at Changu Narayan Temple, learning about Nepal's rich culture. Our group shared stories and became friends for the rest of the day. 

After leaving Changunarayan, we started our walk to Nagarkot from the charming village of Telkot at 11 AM . Our day kicked off with a light breakfast, Bread Jam and boiled eggs, in TelKot. 

The journey promised a mix of physical challenge, and breathtaking scenery, making it a day to remember. The journey took us through villages, where we witnessed beautiful scenes, passed by traditional and old houses, and took the time to click photos and videos. We stumbled upon Jalpa Devi Mandir and took some time to explore its beauty during our hike. 

Every good hike has its tough moments, and ours was no different. Throughout the journey, we faced many steep uphill climbs that really tested us. But our group stuck together, finding joy in facing the challenge. It felt like more than just a tough hike—it was like a symbol of how we tackle challenges together, whether it's in our work or personal lives. Just like the ups and downs of the trail, we faced it as a team, celebrating each step as a shared victory and strengthening our bonds along the way. We took a bunch of pictures, shot some videos, played UNO, had snacks along the way, and even got to see stunning mountain views from certain spots. 

After reaching Nagarkot bus stop, we hopped on a ride to the Mountain Hotel. Despite the cold weather and the brisk wind, we were undeterred, finding joy in the breathtaking panoramic views of the city below. The scene served as a stunning backdrop for a much-needed lunch, our team gathered around the table together and shared stories and laughter. 

Our four-hour journey wasn't just a hike; it was about working together, learning from each other, and growing personally. This experience emphasized the value of stepping beyond our comfort zones and embracing challenges. The memories we made will make our work relationships stronger, and we returned to our desks with a fresh enthusiasm to do our best.
