Embracing the “Ramri” (=beautiful; 4 KM). This in Salyan district.
Here’s the story: Slipped from the rock where the tripod’s standing, dipped the right leg in cold water, fortunately didn’t fully go into water, walked for half an hour in wet shoe– then it dried.

The Gumba provides a pass to each visitor. Cameras don’t like them though.
On way to Pashupatinath temple from Tinkune
This is what you do to emerge out of the long day that includes an embarrassing setback- hitting a rock and falling down from your boat. End of Day Three. We camped nearby.

For me Parthasarathi Rocks (PSR), located inside the sprawling JNU campus, is the most beautiful place in the whole of Delhi. Have spent hours there chatting with friends and counting number of planes that approach the nearby Indira Gandhi International Airport.
Bhaskar Adhikari who works at the Royal Botanical Gardens as a researcher gave me a near-detailed tour of the beautiful Gardens.
This was my first ‘independent’ paddling. After initial hesitation I crossed the Sunkoshi river twice. It took a lot of effort on peter’s side to encourage me to cross the river second time. Else, I was already thinking of carrying the boat in the middle of the Khandichaur bazaar with bare legs.
The conversation ended as soon as the camera captured the scene
I was wearing that jacket and topi because I was about to move out of the pub. Trust me I wasn’t drunk.
Because I am a tourist. And the tourist must smile at the camera with prominent landmark of the place on background.

This is the same Kafal tree, just below the Gurje bhanjyang, Suraj and I had climbed in 2008. We repeated the feat this time. This tree was part of a story that I wrote for Kantipur’s Koseli back then. Here goes the relevant part: त्यतिबेला म शिवपुरीको त्यो घना जंगलको बीचतिरको एउटा खिरिलो तर अग्लो काफलको रूखको लगभग टुप्पैमा थिएँ । राताभन्दा हरिया गेडा बढी, त्यो पनि झनै टुप्पामा । अचानक एउटा एसएमएस आयो जसले पाँच गेडा रातै काफल टिपे बराबरको खुसी दियो । टेलिकमले नेर्टवर्क अप्टिमाइज गरेको र अर्को दिन सेट स्विच अफ/अन गरेमा सेवामा सुधार मिल्ने आशा एसएमएमा देखाइएको थियो । तर त्यसो भए पो, आज चार दिन बिते, अहँ । हेल्लो, हेल्लो, हेल्लो । सुगतरत्न, तिम्रो निधार खै ? त्यो लेखको पूर्ण अंश पढ्ने भए गुगल, गाई र रिक्सा

Playing with crystal clear water of Khani Khola. They are planning to open a hydro power project here so that the villages don’t have to depend on the central transmission line that is marred by up to 16 hours of load shedding. The stream, after running a few kilometers from this point, merges into Bagmati river. Bagmati is is bigger but polluted. Locals say they have stopped fishing since 9 years ago as fishes disappeared from the river.
Risky journey of course but for many people there’s simply no option. Seats are filled up early and not more than two buses ply on the difficult-to-drive road.
