Milan Budathoki It has not been so long here in Deerwalk, already 2 hikes have been organized by the Hiking Club and they were all a success; however, I wasn’t chosen before for the hike. Luckily for the first time, the hiking club organized the batch oriented hike. I was selected as a hiker for one day hike to Nagarkot from Sankhu on 31st Jan. My day for hike started from 6 in the morning when I woke up at my cousin's place. If I hadn’t partied earlier that night, I would have woken up earlier. It was 6:20 AM when I was all set and ready to leave. I was very sure that there was no way I could make to Deerwalk Complex by 6:45 AM. It was a frustrating and tedious moment that ruined my very day, but the early cool breeze that morning kept my nerves down. At about 8 AM, I reached Deerwalk Complex and to my astonishment the van was there and for a moment I was very happy. Later, I came to know that there was some problem with the van; I have to say that I was very lucky to catch them and join them. Leaving for Sankhu from Deerwalk Complex, we reached Salinadi at 8:35 am and we were already behind the schedule. I could know from the face of coordinator that he was tensed. As we headed uphill, he was surprised to see the energy of the hikers. Along the way of the jungle of bushes and thorns, we fought our way up to Jaharsingh Pauwa. Along the way we sat up at different places and felt the fresh air up on the hill. It was refreshing to be far away from the city life. The sweet sounds of birds and the murmur of the insects freshened us up and made us feel relaxed every time we sat for rest. It was unnoticed that we were at Jaharsingh Pauwa (Bajeni) at 11:30. We sat for our snacks and shared the snacks and water and I couldn't describe how tasty that snack was for us.
To cherish the mood of hikers and to freshen up, the coordinator conducted a game where one had to jump and travel the path with ones shoe laces tied up.

He also said that the winner would get a chocolate. Chocolate in the middle of the jungle was cool. Everyone tied up their laces and came forward for the game without hesitation. We all jumped towards the goal which was about 80m away up hill. Me and one of my friend won the race and got the chocolate. With snacks and relaxing game, we headed towards Nagarkot. After a long walk of 3 hours through the jungle, we finally reached Nagarkot Bazaar. We were few hours earlier in our schedule. So, we decided to visit the Nagarkot tower and reached there within 15 minutes of awesome van ride. We decided to have dinner after returning from the tower and left Nagarkot at 3 pm for our home. Overall, the hike was an awesome adventure and more like a connection between friends and seniors.
Shreeya Pandey On 31st January 2016, the hiking club had organized a batch oriented hike to Nagarkot via Jaharsingh Pauwa. The selected students of the batch of 2019 gathered at the college premises and departed from the college with much energy and excitement. Our hike began from Sankhu and we kept on walking through the forest, enjoying, until our legs began to pain and we took some rest. Meanwhile, Abhisekh dai clicked some pictures of us and recorded some of our fun moments too. Unfortunately, I had fallen down and injured myself so it had been very difficult for me to walk; however, with my friends around me, I got the courage to walk.
It was a wonderful opportunity provided by the club. We all had a good time together and I hope that the club provides more of such opportunities.

After reaching Jaharsingh Pauwa, we sat down together and enjoyed some light snacks brought by our friends which provided us with some energy as we were fully tired. After having our snacks, we headed to Nagarkot full of tiredness. We had to cross the hill to reach there. The path was difficult with ups and downs and stairs in between, but we managed to cross it and finally reached Nagarkot. After reaching Nagarkot, we headed towards the Nagarkot tower in our college’s van as we were not able to walk properly due to tiredness. We enjoyed the cool breeze up there and also got to see the beauty of nature from the height above. We were very much hungry by then and thus devoured our meal.
