Hiking from Ramkot to Amitabha Monastery

Participants: Lava, SharadP, Ravi, SudeepK Shiram and Vishnu Route: Ramkot to Amitabha Monastery to Swayambhu Date: Sunday, July 15, 2007 Duration: 3 hours 30 minutes Trip Doom: 11 Kilo meters Report: Ravi and SudeepK Photo: SharadP Creative Support: BinayaN and Nishchal Om Namo Shibaya Last Friday's meeting held at QA department gave us an opportunity to go for hiking as it was asked by lava. The excitement for hike reached at peak when it was Sunday morning. We left our home taking many joys in our mind; we passed our route sharing our excitement with each-other and we reached office around 6:30 AM. After awaiting 15 more minutes Vishnu and his daughter Shiram arrived and we came to know our destination has been changed from Lamidada to Amitabh Monastery situated at Halchowk but surprising arrival of Lava boosted up enthusiasm of hiking team and soon after we left D2 premises at 8 am. As the van was in its full pace our hiking team was busy in interesting topics. Reaching at Sitapaila we had breakfast at Amrit Yin Yang Resort and there we had an opportunity to meet various personalities. After having some snapshot there we moved ahead to Ramkot and at 8:50 our excitement began to materialize as we go through the damp land and pine forest along with the music of MP4 player and some funny jokes. As the time passes, we could not stop our curiosity and started to have some photographs of emerald hills.  Some hilarious moments along with SharadP's "anti juka campaign" heaved our dead beats and those mount passes were without any pain. Those slogs were more interesting with our question to Vishnu about "that Nepali meaning of thing like Scarecrow". Finally, at 12 noon we reached the destination "Amitabh Monastery" which was chock-full of beauty. Not only the monastery but also nuns were fascinating us towards them with their beauty and behavior. Brilliant arts on the walls and the architecture of the Monastery compelled us to capture them in our cameras. The reciting of "ohm mane padme hom" made all the Monastery premises peaceful that carried off all our inconvenience and difficulties. After joyful experiences for about an hour, we walked towards Swoyambhu leaving Thapa gaun behind on the way. Having lunch at Rice and Bowl restaurant with company of Shiram, Vishnu, SharadP and Lava helped us to have added one more memory in our life.       Finally, hiking came to an end we all departed to our own way. We really perceived a great experience for participating in the excursion and we do not mind to thank ourselves. This hiking gave us an opportunity to be familiar with each other and to know more about D2Hawkeye. Great going...
