Everest Uncensored – Hiking Through the Years
Deerwalk has always believed in the energy of the outdoors and the verve it transmits to those who venture. The total number of hikes gone, the places conquered, the time spent together, the memories made thus far, from the days of D2Haweye to the ones in Deerwalk; it has truly been an achievement to be proud of.
A total of 295 hikes, with 703 participants are in record via 2089 everestuncensored posts published thus far. The trips pushed boundaries and conquered altitudes of above 5000 with Yala Peak and Thorong La Pass being a couple of examples. The stereotypical image of an IT professional gets redefined when such numbers are stacked up.
Trekking to Gosaikunda – from Dhunche to Gul Bhanjyang
Writing a travelogue has never been easy for me because, as soon as I clutch a pen, I find myself in a dilemma- what should I write about? In the objectivity of space and time, should I portray the characters that I met, the events that occurred, and the sceneries that I saw? Or should I delineate the whirlwinds that I so intimately felt, being submerged in total subjectivity? That is, should I write a story or a poem? In the depth of bliss, poetry is what I write. Therefore, O friends, come and listen to my poetry of the North interspersed with a story.
Trekking to Langtang and Gosaikunda
The first day was the easiest. We met in Sifal at 7:00AM, distributed the snacks, supplies and medicines between our bags, and hopped in the jeep. Ram took us out of the city through Thankot, across the district border and out of Kathmandu along the road to India.
