An expedition of thrill and pleasure began from early morning with a union of the squad. Kedar Dai geared up towards the destination, which was unknown to all of us. A short break was made to catch taste of organic lassi and that was awesome for those who tasted it for the first time. The tea tasted great as well. After a short tea break at Panchkhal we continued our long highway route. The next stop on our route was at ‘0’ Kilo for breakfast at 9 AM. After a long drive to Barhabise, we asked a few locals for the way to Yarmasing Fort and soon find out the way to it. We had enjoyed many funny moments inside the vehicle during our ride.  

It was 11:45 AM when we reached to 108 kilo on Arniko Highway from where we were likely to start our hike. The destination was on the top of the hill that was standing still and inviting us to a stiff challenge. The suspension bridge over the Bhotekoshi River was a gateway to the Yarmasing Fort. We were welcomed by the tough hill, straight and rigid with lots of rocky stairs. Moving uphill we were soon rewarded with more amazing sceneries, Sushant Dai was the busiest there to digitize them. Nearly 2 hours of ascent took us to the summit, which was a historic fort, built by Jung Bahadur Rana, for fighting against Tibet. We shared that moment by remembering our great ancestors. 

It was a proud moment for all of us to reach such a place, which is also a reminder of our ancestors' bravery, and has a significant place in our history. The glimpse of Khasa bazaar, Bhotekoshi dam and snow capped mountains of Tibet were amazing and breathtaking. After enjoying about 45 minutes on the top we slowly moved down the hill and gathered at ‘108’ kilo to return back. The unlimited fun then began inside the vehicle with duet by Rupesh and RK, and later supported by jokes from our guest Bhuwan Shrestha.
