Vishnu Kshetri


To seek peace in silence, we gathered on Sunday 2nd of October at morning, placidly to commence our day for the excursion. While we were waiting for others we couldn’t keep ourselves idle, so some of us began to play table tennis. Some generous soul was making tea for us. During tea was prepared rest others arrived and we shared the tea together and thanks to those hand who made tea for us. We were purposed to hike on route from Nagarkot to Sankhu instead we decided to go onto other route and we reached a place called Thali by a cab and got off from the cab then began our journey. We started off with a sloppy trail heading towards Sundarijal, wandering through fertile field of mixed vegetation for next one and half an hour of walking, we reached at Sundarijal. On our way, it was wonderful experience to see the farmers working in a calm manner in their field. When we reached Sundarijal we had to stroll for half an hour as it was a market area. As soon as we cross the market we reached close to the jungle area from where we began to climb on gentle steep hill. On the summit of steep there was check post where we bought the ticket to enter Sunderijal forest preservation and we had to open the our bags to security guard for security cause. After 20 minutes of walk down the hill there was temple of Sundari Mai Goddess. Surendra suggested us to pay homage to the Goddess and we agreed and followed his advice to pay homage to Goddess. Then we came back to the track to proceed further. Although we were unaware of the route but lured by the charm of beautiful forest and we were compelled to roam for some time. We came across a water fall formed by Bagamati River where we stayed for a while. Then we moved to climb up, after a short while we reached Hotel called Karma where we tempted to take some refreshment and we did. After quenching our thirst along with natural view we again kicked off to climb Mulkharkha village on a steep hill trail, on this semi natural stairs we walked for one hour and fifteen minutes, which led us to Lamachaur. In fact Lamchaur is a route to go to Chisapani which is very famous place for hikers to visit. Unfortunately, we did not had a enough time to go ahead and enjoy Chisapani surrounding but with thought of reaching the place some day we climbed down Mulkharkha bottom where the hotel Karma seemed waiting for us and we could not overlook it, so we decided to have the lunch. We asked hotel owner to prepare lunch for us. It was very pleasant to see the owner picking fresh pumpkin from her vegetable garden to cook as our vegetable for our lunch. We all felt that it was a great honor to us. After enjoying the delicacy we moved backing towards Sunderijal. On arrival at the place we boarded a bus to Kathmandu. Finally, we reached office around 5 PM. and again played table tennis for while and then decided to disperse. In addition, to my team mates: “Here with a loaf of bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of wine, a book of Verse and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness And Wilderness is Paradise enow” (Edward Fitzerald on Omar Khayyam)
