My Bungy in my memory !!

  • September 5, 2014 1:25 pm

Whenever i pass by people, wearing Bungy T-shirt, written with ‘ The last Resort’ on my way walk, it reminds me my adventure done bungy jump in 2006 at The last Resort. This is situated at Panglang in Sindhupalchok district.
Along roars of Bhote khoshi high above there is a bridge. From the bridge jumping down towards the river looks scary enough. But the people are keeping up accepting  the challenge to jump down with tied up rope on legs and they dare to do bungy jumping. I heard there is not any accident happened since it is opened so it is kind of safe place to give a try. This one is the third in the world for the bungy jump, so it is also a famous spot.
One has to have strong heart. If you are, give a try and have fun non other than……. only fun. Watching from the bridge down the river Bhote Koshi is wild and dangerous.
Before the trip i had to think about doing the decision, taking long long breadth for many days. The program was set and time was coming closer. I think over doing bungy jump made me like ‘ oh my god i have to jump!” It made my heart beat faster and faster.
In our group there were 6 including me and my son dare to jump. I was very excited curious, scared, nervous, kind of mixed up feelings in my mind. We rented a bus from Bhaktapur. On the way, i was very sure to make it happen but there was curd and beaten rice mixed up in my mind.
At the destination, The last Resort, we reached and we looked  around, It is very cool place for recreation. Nice restaurant, rooms, and greenery around.
So felt cosy and we enjoyed a lot in get together eating good food and dancing in Nepali steps. Didn’t remember about jumping  which was the right next day.
New place, so woke up early. Went for little walk around the garden and freshen up then had breakfast.
The time had come and we got ready for the jump. Lined up and there was paper to sign before jumping, which was to assure at our own risk. Then took weight . Three  of us did jump in the first half of the session. My son, Nabin Mulepati, me and Bishow Kawang from our group. There were many other in the line, some foreigners and Nepali students from Ktm.
It was fun to watch every one’s face before a jump. We saw different actions  like some were nervous, some were laughing. In the line front of me a young foreigner lady was sitting on the bridge, closing her eyes, holding the bridge tight, it made me scary, so i didn’t look up at her again. I tried to make myself very calm and looking at the other each jumpers.Before me, my son jumped with full of confidence. Before a jump crew member asked a question to each jumpers. My son said smiling ….im not going to die now! and he jumped and yelled loud with cheering up voice  in each bouncing…..which gave me a kind of strength….then my turn…..i went there with full of sureness…….sat in front of the crew ….they tied me up with rope to my legs….i looked it very well….it seemed very secure….then i was asked the same question how i was feeling….i answered i want to fulfill my dream, flying like a bird. I saw there is a line for the jump written ‘ Why like this?’ i made myself tight…..opened both hands wide…….looked up to the both sides….where my friends were watching me jumping….there was my husband also….thought about him….. i smiled at them,.then i heard their whistle and cheer up sound,,,,,,,,then i looked to the edge at my feet. …..oh it was too scary…..i closed my eyes and jumped like jumping form the high wall…….for few seconds…my whole body was stopped…like i was numb…, i felt i was very light……i felt jumping down ln speed….i felt speed i opened my eyes, i could see nothing because i was going down in high speed so it looked blur……then the rope which was tighten in my legs gave a jurk. then i felt i’m bouncing high up then i saw trees by the sides and water in the river…. i cried yahooooooo!! while bouncing…..it bounced three times…..then i saw other crew down near the river asked me to catch the long bamboo. Then the rope from above loosen down and i got down……..i took a longer breathe and looked up at the bridge….it was high up and could see people very small. then i and my son with other jumpers came up to the hotel. It was about 20 / 30 mins hike after the jump. I felt my self confident and i was very happy. All friends and my husband who was very nervous during my jump could smile and gave us congratulations. My other 3 friends  Nava Shakya, Pramin Shakya and Ramona Pradhananga did in second half session. We felt ourselves very proud.
Since then i felt some changes in myself….i felt proud and more less confident, for sure. I gained something in my life. I feel good when i remember i did the good decision.So do my friends felt, In the CD of video record we bought is written ” you are brave enough” We had proud story to tell after coming back to our other friends and relatives. We received positive reaction, which is very good thing.
So, if you want to gain something in you, you can join the session. I have the contact information. You can call to The last Resort, Ph no 4700525, 4701174,4701247 city office and at Listikot, Panglang at this number 09818917772 or go to the site thelastresort.com.np or email them in info@thelastresort.com.np

The charge is now a days Euro 82 for the foreigners, which includes transport from Ktm, lunch and bungy. And for the Nepalese they charge Rs 4500, which includes transport from Ktm, lunch and bungy.

TOURISM YEAR 2011 IN NEPAL

  • January 24, 2011 11:39 am

Nepal tourism year 2011 A.D. is going on now, let’s visit Nepal and feel it yourself spending much time staying! Kathmandu Durbar square and some pictures around are posted above. It is one of the wonderful place to visit to see beautiful architecture. Kumari house is one of them. Hanuman dhokha and many more temples.Durbar square around are painted and looks clean these days.There is a news about the two treasure houses which was locked for years  in the Hanuman dhokha  Palace premises, going to open soon with in a month  for the year 2011. As the news said,  the treasure were used as keeping wealth for use at the times  of disaster by Shah king Prithvi Narayan Shah. It was used until Shah family shifted to Narayanhiti palace. So everyone is curious to see what the houses contain. The curiosity will end  by February last. Another good part in this square, i find is to feed these lovely birds live around here. Visiting such palace one can feel the time about more than hundred or two hundred years before.

Gosainkunda trip ( part III)

Gosainkunda our destination,  is heaven on earth, i say it. We reached there about eight in the morning. Very cold and clean place. But it was sunny then and felt little warmer. The view was fantastic!!!  It is said lord Shiva came this place to calm down after he drank ‘kalkut bish’ ( poison ) from the ocean. Everything came out of that ocean and took all those good things by other gods but when that poison came out no one took it and it could destroy the earth. To save earth from that poison lord Shiva drank it all. It gave him lots of troubles and had to come to this place to  get rid of such pain. He felt normal again after staying in this place. So this place  has magical power, that people believe. If any one who goes there, takes holy bath, his/ her birth is blessed by lord Shiva.taken by smila 097

I took holy bath, dipped down three times in such chilled water and did worshiping. We brought back some holy water from waterfall there called Trishuldhara, as prasad ( blessing) for our rest family, relatives and friends back home.taken by smila 373We spent there about 4 hrs. had some food in local restaurant. And came back from there about 12 noon. As it started noon,  the weather there started changing suddenly. It was getting darker and foggy all around. Chilled wind blew and we felt very cold. It was not raining but mist started and it made us wet. So we had to wear warm cloth plus raincoat. Coming down from Gosainkunda was more tough. Very steep way down and had to watch out for our each and every step. I felt bit headache, may be lack of oxygen. So hurriedly came down without waiting for friends. They were coming slowly back. On the way back we met lots of piligrims because the next day was ekadashi (one of the best day to worship and holy bath)taken by smila 393

We straightly came down till Chandanbari and stayed a  night there. Bought cheese there in a factory, was good fresh cheese. Then next day walked down till Dhunche and stayed last night there. Then came back home on 2nd of July 2009.taken by smila 117

It was a trip with full of  pleasant feelings , adventurous and memorable for ever. I suggest you ( who read this ) to try once visiting such a heavenly place.taken by smila 217

Gosainkunda trip (part II)

  • September 21, 2009 1:29 pm

taken by smila 059Then after our lunch at Chandanbari we climbed up again and it was more long walk up an more ups. It was raining like light shower and all around was misty. That’s why we couldn’t see any steep down from that height. Some of our friends were tired and they went up riding horse. taken by smila 282One the way we reached a jungle with huge, tall trees. It was dark and very quiet. I don’t know why is it so quiet?? I tried to hear sound of insects , birds…no way….nothing more than only  sound of people walking there. The trees were covered up with other plants (parasites) and made many different shapes makes atmosphere scary.taken by smila 253 That night we stayed in Morning view hotel at Laurebina ( 3900 mtr.). The hotel there was only ok, we felt too cold and couldn’t breath normally. That must be high altitude sickness. So me and my friends couldn’t sleep the whole night. I had to walk in between the night time. That made me feel better than sleeping or lying on bed. One amazing i heard and saw is,  not only for us high altitude sickness happened to my padlock also……really amazing!! The hotel owner knew the technique to open the locked padlock, which i have tried so many times to open couldn’t and she opened it with her technique.taken by smila 083

Next morning on 31st of July 2009 was Friday. We started to be ready to headway from Laurebina to  Gosainkunda, our destination. It was about half five we went out of our hotel and looked around. It was very nice to see such unbelievable scene of mountain ranges and sunrise. It was amazing to see such peaks,taken by smila 084 Langtang range so close by. It was really spectacular scene around at Laurebina, Rasuwa. I had a different feeling of happiness even it was tough walk and tired. The view just relaxed us with mentally,too. I felt peace. taken by smila 085

Gosainkunda trip (part I)

  • August 30, 2009 6:56 pm

It was last month(on 29th of July 2009),  i went to a trip to Gosainkunda (lake). It is in Rasuwa district. We can go there either the way from Sundarijal or from Dhunche. We were 26 all together. We reserved a mini bus from Bhaktapur and went to Dhunche. It took us about 7 hours by bus.  On the way at Trishuli we had our morning meal (dal bhat). Then we did a night stop at Dhunche. taken-by-smila-0031From Kathmandu to Trishuli road was  fine. But from Trishuli till Dhunche  was bad. There was landslide at Ramche. It was scary to see such landslide. It is natural cause it was  summer and raining. Some places we had to get out of the bus and need to walk. I remember it was more scary while walking through that landslide at Ramche. People from there were yelling after us asking to  run, there was danger to stand , stones and mud were just coming down. Everybody in the bus started shouting calling god’s name ” Om nama Shivaya”.taken-by-smila-005taken-by-smila-006

Then the next morning(30 th of July), we started walking up the hills from 6 a.m. It was raining like light shower. We were ready wearing all the protection from rain(raincoat)leech(we used salt/antileech spray etc. It was quite warm and raining all the time so there in the woods were attacked by leech. Some of our friends had salt, some just used anti leech spray. All of us has worn long sleeve raincoat and walking shoes. All the way we had to do is just walk up and up and up more ups. Some places were narrow paths looked dangerous. We did one good thing, we had sticks with us and it was really helpful and was nice support to walk up in the slippy hills. After about walking 45 mins we crossed a bridge and walked up again. It was festival time so on the way we could find some place like small restaurant and resting place in a tent. Locals were preparing some food like tea, potato curry, bread, boiled eggs etc. So after 2 hours of walking we took rest at a tent and had some breakfast. As we started climbing up and it seems like the temperature getting down. While we were resting we could see vapor coming out of our body. Then started walking up again. It was long long walking up all the same way. taken-by-smila-027taken-by-smila-032On the way we could see such beautiful natural scenes. It reduced our tiredness during walking up. Some boys were selling walking sticks. We came to know that there in woods we can find many valuable herbs which are prohibited to pick up and take with travelers. It is illegal to take with. They are poisonous too. They look beautiful but we were asked not even to touch any of herbs.taken-by-smila-0451
