My Bungy in my memory !!

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.

TOURISM YEAR 2011 IN NEPAL

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)

taken by smila 120

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
