The hiking club scheduled a one-day hike to Dhap Dam on 9th April,2023. Around 7:05 a.m., we arrived at the Deerwalk complex.
We departed from the college premises at 7:35 am and had breakfast at 8:10 am at Sundarijal. At 8:50 am, The coordinator began to provide noodles and juice for energy. The hike began at 9:15 am after the group acquired tickets from the entrance. Then we had a short break at 10:30 am to gather and have a conversation after walking for about an hour. At 12:47 pm, the group asked locals about the duration of the hike and learned that there was a shorter route, which we were not aware of. This caused frustration due to exhaustion from the sun, and we were unable to find any shops until we saw a stall.
We took a rest after a little while and had some food at the stall, but afterwards, we learned that the stall had run out of water. At 1:46 pm, we finally reached the destination and took a deep breath. We found the destination to be completely worth the effort.
Around 2:17 pm, we enjoyed noodles and juice while admiring the view and taking pictures. Then we headed back at 2:40 pm and took a short break at 4:09 pm due to tiredness and hunger. We had a conversation about how long it would take to return, and finally, after walking for a long time, we saw the point from where the hike began. The group was happy and relieved to see the hike come to an end at 6:20 pm. We reached dinner point at 7:11 pm before returning home.
Overall, the hiking trip was challenging, but the beautiful scenery and destination made it worthwhile for the group.
Thank You !
