Ayush Sedai On 25th June 2017, DWIT Hiking Club organized one-day hike to Namobudhha via Panauti. There were 13 of us for this hike. We departed from our college premises for Panauti at 7 am. We had light snacks in one of the local shops and after that our hike began with much energy and enthusiasm. All of us headed towards Namobuddha enjoying the pleasant weather along with our friend’s company.
As being the season of crop harvesting, the fields there seemed as if they were painted in green which really soothed our eyes.

The rainfall of previous night cleared the weather and also cooled down the temperature which helped us to pick up pace during the start of our Hike. We walked through the pine forest till noon. After much tiring walk, we had our snacks break. We resumed the hike after having our snacks and reached Namobuddha at 2pm. Upon reaching Namobuddha, we clicked pictures and worshiped the temples present there. We enjoyed there for about an hour and headed back to our start point. It took us around 20 min to reach there. Thus, our epic hike ended with a good dinner at around 6pm. In a nutshell, we had a very wonderful and memorable hike which we will cherish for a lifetime.
Prayush Shrestha On 25th June 2017, DWIT Hiking Club organized one day hike to Namobudhha via Panauti. We all arrived at deerwalk premises at 6.30 am and after some waiting we departed to the destination at 7:00 am. After an hour of drive we reached our drop off point i.e. Panauti bus stop, we had a light breakfast in local sweet shop then with full energy and enthusiasm we began our hike. We walked from Panauti to Namobuddha by taking the pitch road. As being the season of crops the fields seemed as if they were painted green which really soothed our eyes. The rainfall of previous night cleared the weather and also cooled down the temperature which helped us to pick up pace during the start of our Hike. After walking through the road surrounded by the rice crops we took the route that went through the village and up through the peach trees until reaching the point where the hike started to get tuff.
We decided to let go off the main road and take the alternate hill road which would be much more adventurous.
We decided to let go off the main road and take the alternate hill road which would be much more adventurous. The slippery and steep climb then added difficulty to our hike. We decided to take a short break which was interrupted by leeches. That didn't stop us from taking awesome pictures though. We walked through the pine forest till noon then we had our snacks break. We sat under a big tree and had our snacks. We had almost covered two third of our hiking route and was certain to the reach the destination in an hour or so. Little did we know what lay ahead? After the break, more steep and slippery hills along with the scorching sun created much more difficulties. We would walk for 20-25 mins then take rest for 15 mins which significantly increased our time to reach the destination. After some more walking and resting we reached our destination at around 2. The breathtaking view and the beauty of gumba helped us a little to relax our mind. After taking some pictures we walked downhill to reach our pick up point. We had our lunch at a local hotel and then departed to college. Thus concluding yet another epic Hike.
