Hiking To nage Gumba- Anita Suwal
We planned to meet at NAC 6:00a.m. I was the first person to say that but I reached at 8:00am. Our journey started at that moment. We were waiting for bus. And at same time we played game “stop” at bus stop. All of them enjoyed but me because I was out in the first round as I did not know the rule.
The Bus didn’t come so we chose next route, route to Budhanilkantha. From that point the actual hiking started. We started walking. After walking about an hour, we reached at Shivapuri Nagarjun National Park gate. Sarose (colleague) went to buy tickets and we started doing photo session. There we met international tourist. The tourists were approaching us to take their photos. We did and asked them to take photo of ours also.
We started our journey to Nage Gumba. I was the weaker person among the team. All of them look so energetic but i…. I had eaten two chocolates(Snickers) already cause I felt hungry and weak. Time to time I was saying I am hungry, I can’t walk. Clicking photo, singing songs, eating snickers , drinking tang juice.. We reached Nage Gumba. I was so tired and hungry that instantly I wanted to have food but others (team) were busy clicking photos. While Clicking photo Kushma(colleague) started flirting with a tourist name Cyrus and Bikash too started flirting with a tourist named Laila. After a while, breakfast started. I ate as if I was never given food to eat.
We decided to hike upto Shivapuri despite the disagreement from me and Rajiv Sir. We started but after a while rain fall. Due to the rain we decided to return back. We returned to the Gumba. There we had black tea which was so tasty. We enjoyed the fog .Clicked lots of photo , danced, played game , jumped. We returned singing songs. I didn’t sing a song as I am not good at all. Then Rajiv Sir gave us idea to play game “word puzzle”. We twist the game by instead of words of every thing , we choose only person name.There was punishment for those who cannot say the words.The punishment was dance .By this way we reached Budhanilkantha and we ride the bus, reached New Road where we had dinner and after that we all went to our own home.
The hiking was so exciting, more enjoyable, joyful, and memorable. I enjoyed a lot lot lot .Thanks to all my team making the hiking remarkable.
Hiking To Nage Gompa -Kushma Thapa
My morning started with a visit to mahankal bhairab. Then after, four of us met at NAC stop, and since we had to wait for the other 3, we decided to give a visit to sankata mandir. After half an hour or so all seven of us had gathered, and in the meantime while waiting for the micro bus, we started to play the famous 90’s game “S.T.O.P.”. People around us were probably calling us crazy.
The micro dropped us to budhanilkantha chowk. And we started our hiking thereafter. While we were walking in the jungle of Shivapuri National Conservation Area, we decided to take the short cut routes once in a while just for fun, where we literally had to climb using the tree roots and branches.
After hours of walking, we finally reached our destination, Nage Gompa. The old chaur had turned to a six story building. The view from therein, was amazing, breathe taking. We settled in the grasses, and started making our breakfast. It started getting too windy and cold. We clicked pictures, did our selfie and group snaps. Then the dilemma arrived, which was either to go forward or to stop. After too much of discussion we finally decided to move forward. So we started to climb deeper into the woods. After an hour or so, it started to rain. The paths were quite a thing. And the drizzle was sure to make it difficult to return, so we stopped, had our energy drinks, and started to go back. Luckily for us, the paths had not turn too muddy or slippery. We stopped at a local shop, and ordered for tea.
As we were sipping our tea, something amazing happened. The fog it started coming down. And it looked so amazing, not less than the first snowfall experience. We all started jumping and taking pictures. And in a few minutes everything around turned whitish.
We started heading down. And on our way, we played games, and anybody who made a mistake had to dance. It was quite fun to see a guy dancing in bollywood item number. We took a micro to new road, ate tons and shared our scary moments. And then the journey ended.
