The hiking club successfully conducted a two days hike to Sailung, Dolakha. On 12th November, all of us gathered at Deerwalk Complex and headed to our destination at 7:45 a.m.
We were all excited as there were students from all 4 batches. We had our breakfast at Dhulikhel at 9:20 a.m. We left the restaurant where we had our breakfast at 9:50 a.m. As it was early Saturday morning, the road was not too busy. We reached Mude at 12:10 a.m. One of the coordinators had contacts with the hotel manager in Mude so we got our lunch served as soon as we got fresh. We headed off after a 45 minutes break to sailung.
The bus couldn’t go farther so we had to take a lift from the local truck in Deurali which dropped us at Dhunge. We clicked some pictures there and headed to our beautiful destination, Sailung. Our actual hike started at about 2:15 p.m. We carried some snacks, dry fruits and chocolates with us which helped us on our journey. We saw yak on the way and some of us were terrified of it. We reached the tower of Sailung at 5:43 pm and got to watch the mesmerizing view of the sunset. The view from the top of the tower was really beautiful. We clicked tons of pictures of ourselves and the course of the view and even started shouting and dancing. As it was really cold and the wind from the mountains was blowing, we quickly went to the homestay where we stayed the night.
We ate our dinner at 7:49 p.m. As the hike was in collaboration with The Music Club, they started their event right after we ate our dinner. It was really cold and some of our hikers were too tired so they slept quickly. The rest of us enjoyed the melodious voices of the singers amongst us and slept around 9:15 p.m.
On the second day of the hike, i.e. on 13th November, we woke up early at 4:00 a.m. The coordinators were responsible and aware. We took a cup of tea and started walking at around 4:30 a.m. We somehow had to reach the top of the tower to watch the sunrise so we started cheering each other to walk constantly. We reached the tower at 5:45 a.m. and the scenario swept all of the tiredness away from our bodies. Then we walked back to Dhunge and where we caught a local bus. At 10:05 a.m., we reached Mude and ate lunch at the same hotel we had lunch at the day before. Then we left Mude at 11:35 a.m. and reached Dhulikhel at about 3 p.m. where we had a glass of lassi. After a break of 20 minutes, we headed directly to Kathmandu.
We reached Deerwalk Complex exactly at 4:48 p.m. and parted ways.
This is one of the best memories I have had in DWIT yet. The trip was so amazing and beautiful. We got to know each other and more about what’s happening in our college at the moment. I have achieved so many things from this hike and I hope the club will be back with more such beautiful and thrilling hikes in future.
