    Day 1: Kathmandu to Tuppi Danda – The Beginning of the Adventure

    Our journey commenced  at 7 o’clock in the morning in Kathmandu a, where the air was infused with excitement and the promise of exploration. After a scenic bike drive, we reached Melanchi, the gateway to our trek. Melanchi, with its bustling market and friendly locals, served as the perfect introduction to the cultural tapestry of Sindhupalchok. That is where we took delicious typical Nepali lunch. It took us three hours to get there.

    From Melanchi to Chhimti- Leaving the comforts of Melanchi behind, we set forth on the trail towards Chimti, Botang. The bike riding led us through terraced fields, quaint villages, and dense forests, each step revealing the unique charm of rural Nepal. The vibrant rhododendron blooms accompanied us, creating a vivid contrast against the lush greenery. As we ascended, the views of the surrounding hills and valleys became increasingly spectacular. The trail unfolded like a story, with each turn revealing a new chapter of natural beauty.

    Upon reaching Chimti, the sight of the serene landscape and the distant Himalayan peaks left us in awe. From Melanchi, it alomst took us 7 hours to reach here. The condition of rural Sindhupalchowk is poor; it was not pitch, full of puddles, dust, stone-paved and ups downs. We asked the locals for bike parking lot, and leaving our bikes, we started trekking to Pachpokhari. The highlight of our trek awaited as we embarked on the journey to Pachpokhari. The trail meandered through alpine meadows adorned with prayer flags, creating a spiritual ambiance. The crystal-clear lakes of Pachpokhari came into view, reflecting the towering peaks that surrounded them.  One and half hours trekking, we ended up at Tuppi Danda, and we stayed there for night rest.

It was almost dark to get to Pachpokhari. It took a few houre more extra because I got cold as I reach Namsang which is amost 400 feet high, and the wind, water and weather was really cold. We just ate food and slept that night. Tomorrow ealy mornig, went out to explore the surroundings. Reaching the sacred lakes was a surreal experience. The tranquility of the place, interrupted only by the distant sounds of prayer bells, made us feel like we had stepped into a hidden sanctuary.
