Canyoning @ Last Resort
-Rikesh Shakya, Asim Shrestha

Lots of excitement was there since it was our first participation
in the weekly hike program and additionally this time it was canyoning at Last Resort.6:30 am, comes the office van to pick us up. On the way the van picks up other participants and altogether we were 10 of us.The van then headed towards the destination.Enjoying the rocking music, chit-chats we passed through banepa, dhulikhel, then we stopped for the breakfast on our way.After heavy breakfast unlike other normal days,
because its a long journey and about 3 hour long canyoning. Finally after 3 and half hours we reached Last Resort.Then we rested for few minutes and enjoyed the welcome drink, then the briefing session by the guide started. The team was divided into two groups and we were in the second group. The first group then headed towards the dressing room, in the meantime we clicked some photographs (Babin dai n Sudeep dai ko pose haru..n not to mention an incomplete game of chinese checkers between Sudeep dai and rest of us). We then followed the the first group after abt 15 mins. On the way the guides gave us the description of the canyoning…there were seven springs to climb down.
Then started the adventurous journey. Felt bit afraid at first…the first spring was quite difficult to pass, then goes on second, third in which we really enjoyed the natural shower.., fourth, fifth, sixth and finally the adventurous and exciting journey came to an end with the longest and seventh spring of 45m. We really enjoyed all of them…but now its time to climb up the way towards the base.
A delicious meal was waiting for us at the base. After the meal it was almost 5, and drops of rain started to fall so we quickly packed up and headed towards the office van. Finally after another 3 hrs of journey tired participants headed towards their respective homes.
In conclusion, it was really a wonderful experience and additionally it was a chance to get familiar with the fellow colleagues.
