On 17th september 2023, the Hiking Club and Deerwalk Literature Society collaborated to organize an exciting one day hiking trip to Bhundole. Bhundole chaur is a ground surrounded by the forest famous as a picnic spot.
At around 7:15 Am, 13 of us gathered at the Deerwalk complex and left for the hike on the micro bus. Around 8 we reached Balkhu, had some breakfast and a warm cup of tea which filled us with energy for the hike. Again we reboarded the bus. To make the trip even more memorable, we decided to enjoy some music together and after another hour we finally reached our hiking destination. With excitement we started our hike At 9:00 A.M. The sight of the trailhead filled us with excitement and anticipation. The hike was challenging, with a steep ascent that tested our stamina. We were also greeted by a hot and sunny climate, which presented an additional challenge. However, the beautiful surroundings and the encouragement from fellow hikers kept our spirits high.
After a rigorous climb, we finally reached our destination at 12. The view from the summit was nothing short of spectacular, with panoramic vistas of lush green valleys and towering hills.To add a literary twist to the adventure, the Literature Society Club had organized activities such as book readings and discussions, we also took a nostalgic trip down memory lane by playing childhood memories games. One of the highlights was a game of "Mafia," where participants tried to identify the "mafia" members among us through strategic discussions and votes.
On our descent, we encountered a section of stairs covered in slippery moss. This unexpected obstacle added an extra layer of excitement and challenge to our hike and at around 3 we gathered around our bus and went for lunch at Taudaha Banquet. After enjoying typical Nepali Thakali we again boarded the bus and returned to college at around 5:30 PM.
