Kulekhani is a village development committee in Makwanpur District in the Narayani Zone of southern Nepal. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 2972 people living in 535 individual households The Kulekhani watershed is located 50 km southwest of Kathmandu and is the source of water for the Kulekhani reservoir, which supplies water to two hydropower plants ($120 million total investment). When the reservoir was completed in 1982, it had a 100 year design life based on projected sedimentation rates. Unfortunately, due to high erosion rates and landslides in the watershed,
Hiking from Ranipauwa to Nuwakot
It was a brilliant Saturday morning when we gathered at the office around 7:30am and a few of the hikers joined us from Balaju. We traversed the Balaju-Bypass road and the beautiful scenery of mountain range and view of distant hills greeted us with a promise of an enjoyable day ahead. We arrived in the Ranipaunwa from Kathmandu after a drive of about 40 minutes. We had a breakfast there and heard from the locals that Sisneri was only a hour away. So in search for a tougher route, we decided to go to Nuwakot Durbar (about 5-6 hours on foot).
We started around 9:30 am and everyone was ready…
Mindfulness does not come from thinking, talking, or reading about it. We can write a book on mindfulness without ever being mindful. Mindfulness requires an ever going practice in real life. With great effort, when it comes, it comes for true benefit for the individual. Its always there for you to protect when you are with it. We cannot summarize the benefits of such an enormous topic in a small text like this. In this text I will try to extend some important points that I observed so far in management.
Hiking from Okharpauwa to Tileghar via Naubise
The group comprising of Abanish Kayastha, Bhuwan Shrestha, Kapil Pandey,Lava Kafle,Rudra Pandey,Surendra Nath Adhikari, and Sushant Pokharel (the great Photographer for the team) moved from kathmandu driven along the narrow black topped road curling down towards Okharpauwa Nuwakot District where whole waste of Kathmandu Valley is dumped. We were smelling the reality while analyzing the effects of Plastics that cannot be degraded by soil, and the Leeching black liquid that would fall into the river thereby affecting natural plants and animals surviving in the river and by its side.
Beyond Geeks, Deerwalk Annual Fest
The date was “11-11-11” and it became significant because of one more reason. It was the day we celebrated very first Deerwalk Annual Festival “Fallwalk”. After Ashay kick started the show, our Executive Chairman Rudra Pandey gave his presentation to all employees of Deerwalk to let everyone know where we stand right now and where we are heading in coming days. He believes success should always be measured by number. It was the day we celebrated very first Deerwalk Annual Festival “Fallwalk”.
Hiking from Kharipati to Nagarkot
We probably might have been to Nagarkot on many occasions. I personally, have been to Nagarkot many times – for the sightseeing on bike, for picnics way back when I was still in high school and for its famous sunset (though on that particular occasion we had planned for the sunrise but we overslept because… anyways that’s another whole new story). We planned this hike to start from Naubise to Thankot but due to many reasons such as reluctance of the participants to show up on time causing delays in departure – we finalised the hike to Nagarkot.
Hiking from Tuhuro Gadhi to Tatopani
Tatopani held intrigue for me even as a kid, and stepping into the scathingly hot water after a long day of hiking was an amazing experience. At about 8.30 PM, we reached zero kilo near Melamchi where we stopped for our breakfast. The hills and dales were absolute treats and as we moved along the river banks, I was mesmerized. 8 kilometers from Tatopani, we crossed a suspension bridge to kick off the hike to Tuhuro Gadhi. The ascent was decorated with beautiful stone walled houses that brought back years of yonder. Almost half way between the highway and the fort, as we neared a village, we ran into rain, and as we were getting drenched,
Hiking from Sitapaila to Amitabha Monastery
I believe this is the first hiking report ever written by a U.S. participant. I hope it will be up to the standards of the past. We got started bright and early with eleven total hikers. The first people got picked up at 7 am. It was a bit overcast and I was hoping it would not rain. As it turned out, there were just enough clouds to make the temperature extremely pleasant all day. By mid-day, a delightful breeze kicked in and it was extremely pleasant. We started out day with breakfast at the Bamboo Restaurant just across the street from the Monkey Temple where we would finish our hike.
Hiking from Lamatar to Lakuri Bhanjyang
So the morning of the hike I woke up early wondering what kind of day was in store for me today. So far my stay in Nepal had been fantastic getting to know the people and parts of the city but I was happy to get out and see some sights as so far I had seen the hotel, the office and the road in between (and a couple of restaurants). The van picked me up bright and early and we took off down the street. Very quickly we became stuck in festival traffic and after meeting up with the rest of the group we decided that it was going to…
