Hike to Nagarkot – 18th Dec 2016

Published on: Jan 27 2017 by hikingclub

When I first got a notice about the mandatory whole batch hike to Nagarkot, to be honest, I was quite reluctant about the idea. Also, it was also mentioned that the hike would be of five hours. But the thought of going there along with my friends brightened up my mood. Since it had only been about a month we started college, this hike would be the perfect opportunity to strengthen our bonds and make more friends.

As per the instruction, all of the hikers arrived at the college premises by 7:30 am. Since we were a large group of 53 along with some senior brothers and Surendra sir. We had to be divided into four groups for management. After some time spent managing our large group we moved from the college in college bus. After about an hour we got off at Sankhu and began our hike after a small meeting with all the hikers coordinated by Surendra sir.

The hiking began with enthusiasm and excitement that lasted the entire hike. We began walking in groups guided by senior brothers and Surendra sir.

After some hours of tiring walk through some steep and slippery paths, all of us gathered around a chautara type place and rested and had some snack which was technically our lunch. There we sat around for some time and rested ourselves. After some time, we picked up our hike where we had left off with new enthusiasm and spirit. After walking through some very slippery paths in the forest we finally arrived at our destination – Nuwakot.

Then again we walked to the tower along with our friends talking and laughing all the way. After that, we got on the bus and began our travel back home. Though on the way back home we sang and danced all the way which is was also quite as fun as the hike itself. Almost all of us were on the same bus and many of us were dancing in the songs playing on the bus. After arriving at the college we had dinner together and then went back home.
