We gathered at Deerwalk premises at 8:00 AM, with everyone eagerly anticipating the hike ahead. Our van departed at 8:15 AM, and we picked up additional hikers along the way. We made a stop at Budhanilkantha temple for prayer, where we had a light breakfast that was delicious, and everyone felt more energized afterward.
Our hike began at Dadagaun, with the destination set for Bishnudwar. However, after some time, we encountered a group of hikers headed to the same destination. Bishnudwar is where the Bishnumati river originates, and the hike was easy, with proper trail markings as it fell inside the national park area and an army camp. The fresh breeze, icy water, and fallen leaves made the hike even more enjoyable. We paused at different spots to capture pictures, appreciate nature, and take in the view of the valley. Our adventure-filled day continued as we met some army personnel on the way.
Upon arriving at Bishnudwar, we were astonished by the wooden bridge that led to the main temple. Walking across the bridge, we relished the chilly breeze and noticed the cave that led to the temple. We took cameras to capture our way in, and some of us remained on the bridge. The cave opened into another smaller bridge, connecting us to the hiking trail to Baghdwar, our new destination. We congregated around a massive stone, shared snacks, laughed, and enjoyed each other’s company. We hiked back to Dadagaun, where we had lunch at Dada Organic Resort.
Although our hike ended earlier than expected, we created a vast collection of memories, shared jokes, chatted, danced and took numerous pictures, which we can cherish and always share. We returned to the Deerwalk complex and concluded our one-day hike.
