This was my first ever hiking with D2 team and I was excited to do so with Rudra. When I was informed to join hiking by email I shared this with my coworkers. They scared me: “you are going for hiking with Rudra…? Enjoy the tough hiking…” and so so.

I reached D2 office at around 6:45 am even though I was informed to reach there at 6:30 am. I was nervous as I saw all new faces except Bahadur and Rudra. We left D2 premises and reached Sundarijal at 7:45 am. There we had breakfast [Cell-roti, tarkari and tea].

We started our journey to Chisepani at 8:15 am. As soon as I walked few steps ahead, sounds of water surrounded my ear, green environment embraced me and I found pureness in every breath I took. Wow what a good environment to enjoy on Sunday.

Bhaskar suggested to take long route to Chisepani with two options in hand, either to take a short route with lots of steps or to take long route with no steps. Bhaskar was leading the team and showed the way. As we moved towards the destination I found various interesting places. We walked on the hill where there was no per-used path, lots of brook with clear and cold water which gave me feeling of freshness.

We take a rest at around 12 noon where there was two small “Gumba”. Some friends were saying that it was grave. After having few minutes rest we again started our journey and reached Chisapani at 2 pm. We were tired as we hiked a long way. There we made a special request to cook green ‘Mustard sag’ and had a lunch.

From Chisapani we saw very beautiful view of some mountains. There were few hotels, houses and army camp too. The place was small yet beautiful.

We started our journey back to Sundarijal at around 4 pm. We were tired and facing difficulties to walk. We were late and had to walk in the dark with cigarette lighter, that Anup had brought and mobile screen lights only helped us. Despite of hard journey we were laughing at joke-“Dai yaha Chiatwa audaina?” by Anup Basnet.

As closer I reached the destination more pain added to my legs. Finally, I saw micro labeled “D2Hawkeye Services “and sleep at the last seat. This ends my long and hard hiking. But as my legs got rest I feel the real test of hiking and that satisfied me.


It was the first experience of hike in my life. Because of this I was really excited for hiking. To fulfill this excitement, I decided to go on hike. I reached the office at 6:45 thinking that I was late. But hike team moved only at 7:30 a.m. There were 9 members in the team. We were going to hike from Sundarijal to Chisopani.. .Our team reached Sundarijal at 9:00 a.m. and we had to travel around 16 km to reach at our destination. We moved towards our destination after having light breakfast at Sundarijal. The journey is really enthusiastic. The pleasure of talking with the people that we met on the way is really different. We were naturally divided into two groups. I was in the first group. There was a school on the way. School was closed so we were unable to distribute the materials that we brought for schools. Luckily, we met with a teacher of the school. We gave our materials to her. The way from school to Okrani was really difficult. It was around 12:30 a.m. when we reached at Okreni. We took light breakfast at the Okreni and then moved toward Chisopani. Finally, we reached destination at 2:00p.m. We took our lunch at the local hotel of Chisopani. Our team left the Chisopani at 4:00p.m. This time different way was taken to return Sundarijal. I really enjoyed this hiking. I was really afraid before hiking because I heard that Rudra’s hiking is really tough. But after hiking I didn’t feel such rather I felt great pleasure.
