After a night long heavy downpour, at the time of gathering weather was clear and tranquil. With this establishment of nature, we set forth our journey without wasting a moment. We dashed into microbus for heading towards starting point of our excursion. We got down at Bicharithok and slowly began with our trip hoping it will be wonderful one too. As soon as we jumped out from wheel, spring water and rocks greeted us and, the steep trails led us through thinly populated village along with radish cultivation in different form of planting. Before entering a deciduous forest unfortunately, Amit had a cramp on his leg and collapsed. As we had hiked few kilometers, we were in doubt whether Amit could continue or he could not. After applying some massage and encouragement from teammates, he paid tremendous efforts to push himself for once again to set the pace and he did. This was a very inspiring, to make us to understand for all of us, if we tried, we can make it. I was impressed with his courage. As we kept our pace, we happened to be entering the jungle and the trails was not clear. However, we made our journey through by walking under the thick shrubs and sometime climbing over the rocks. After a while of this wonder walk, we had a Junglee breakfast at the top of hill. Onward from here the mystic trails kept us busy to direct the course to our wonder. Finally, around an hour of ponder walking we arrived at clear trails that was built by a scouts administer region and we had a little lecture for walking on that trails by German General lady, telling us that, that was private property. The acclaim was not that true so we did not pay much attention to listen to her and continued with our pace to Kakani summit. We could have had panoramic views of Himalayan range but unfortunately, because of dense cloud canopy it remained invisible. Moreover, our van picked up us here and drove to Cowle. At Cowle we had some traditional refreshment and Rudra had to leave us here due to his personal work. Then we went by van towards north from Cowle, after a short drive from here we reached a place called Ranipauwa, where we ordered an exceptional lunch to cook for us and that was superb, it seemed that every body were enjoying of its own kind. With taste and restlessness, we returned to our office to disperse to every individual’s direction. Thus, another day of excitedly new experience journey ended to cherish by all of us in our memory. In addition, that has left us curious to explore other new places to foster the triumph.
