Yes, it was my first hike ever and with my two doctors, first my left leg and second my right, I climbed mountains and got their good tidings. I noticed that nature’s peace flew into me as sunshine flew into trees, the winds blew their own freshness into me, and the rain drops came with its sweet and cool breeze, which was really a great experience.

Well, let me ask you a question. How could you explain that you need to know the trees are still there, and the hills and the sky? Anyone knows all are there. How could you say it is time your pulse responded to another rhythm, the rhythm of the day and the season instead of hour and minute? No, you cannot explain. So you walk. I always remember the words that I read somewhere in a book. It said, “If you are seeking creative ideas, go out walking. Angels whisper to a man when he goes for a walk.” Well, I did not get any Angels whispering to me at this time, but I am sure I will get one when I go for a walk next time.

Finally, after all those experience, I only went out for a walk that day and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in !


I decided to hike for the first time, when my colleagues, encouraged me to join. I reached office at 6:45 am, and found everybody were already there. After having a cup of tea, we moved out of office at 7:15 am. During the one and half hours drive to Zero kilo, everybody shared their incidents of earlier hikes and Aashish shared his experiences of Boston hike. As driving was bit longer than our expectations made us dying for some food and finally landed at Zero kilo for the breakfast.

After the breakfast, we moved ahead for Dolalghat, which was at the 10 kms of driving from this point. Our hike started immediately after we landed at the bus stand of Dolalghat. After 15 minutes of walk, we reached the bank of Bhotekoshi. Vishnu and Nipun jumped in the river for swimming, and we were just resting and enjoying the surroundings and treasuring soft touch of chill breeze. After half an hour of rest, we followed the trail of the bank of Bhotekoshi where we strode for little more than 1 hour. We had to backtrack on the same trail, as the weather was not favorable and the next destination was too far. We reached Dolalghat at around 2:00 pm, and the van was already waiting there. We again moved back to Zero Kilo for the lunch. Where the Thakali khana was prepared in a special way to treat us and, that was enchanting. After the delightful lunch, we headed back for Kathmandu.

Though it was a first hike for me however it turned out an opportunity to learn and know about many thing and I am glad for being a part of it.

  1. Hi there, You’ve done an excellent job. I will definitely digg it and personally suggest to my friends. I’m sure they’ll be benefited from this website.

  2. I’ve been missing a lot of things lately…and hiking tops the list… looking forward to getting back to hiking ways… 😛

  3. Great river-side pictures and great hike, I think I missed it. I am tempted to go in such trips with you guys in days to come. Duration: Two hours thirty minutes is good. Not eight hours walk like Lele trip. Lele trip was tiring, but achievement was there. Thanks to all of you.

  4. Great D2 guys! You guys have exposed Nepal’s hidden treasure to world through these hiking series. You guys work too – or just hike? I am just wondering. That’s what one of my friend from ServingMind told – it is about having fun in D2 than working.
