It is the first and the largest man-made lake prepared for the Kulekhani Hydro Project. We were a team of nine and headed towards Thankot.
Hiking – a word that indicates walking in natural environments. How could I miss the call of nature? Geared up for the first official hike on 10th August, 2013 from Deerwalk. Reached office at 7:25 am and waited for other colleagues. We were altogether 15 members for the hike and the route was from Thankot to Kirtipur. We took office vehicle and reached Thankot, and then the real fun started.
It was 17th March, Sunday; I was very excited from the get go as it was my first time participating in a hike organized by Deerwalk. Our very own Kanchan Raj Pandey was the hike coordinator. Including me, there were 10 participants in total for the hike. I got inside the office premises at around 6:50 am. Few of other members were already there and few arrived later. We left at 7:10 am and picked up the remaining participants along the way. At 8:00 am, we were at Thankot. After a short snacks break we headed out for the targeted location, Machhegaun.
After catching our route we headed towards Simbhanjyang. Some of us started to walk fast as we were hungry and getting cold. We reached Simbhanjyang at 4:00 pm and stayed at a small hotel. We had some food there and headed for Daman. After walking for half an hour we reached Daman and managed to stay in a hotel
