“Let’s go on an adventure trip” was the only thought that was in my mind while planning for my next trip. I knew I had to visit this place with whomsoever and in whatsoever conditions. Started with a different group and when the final day arrived we were just two girls. It had to be a crazy adventure trip. We had no bookings done except for the Bungee jumping.
This was a trip of lifetime and equally thrilling we booked the train tickets for Ranchi to Raxaul a day night journey and next evening we were at Raxaul. The train journey has always been fun being friends with co passengers and playing with kids around.
That evening we were at Raxaul and thanks to the co passengers they helped us to get a rickshaw and reach the bus stand. It was fun walking beside the abandoned railway track and get the rickshaw to go to Birganj, the buses for Kathmandu plies from here.
First thing first you need to stay connected to home and inform them about your whereabouts so we searched for a mobile shop to get a local sim.
Note: to get a local sim one has to have passport and photo.
The bus left at 8:00 pm and next morning we were at Kathmandu and during the journey we booked the hotel room at Thamel.
Thamel is the commercial center and has many hotels around within the area. It is famous among the trekkers coming form various places around the world. This place is cozy and safe and as we went in the narrow alleys we felt like a whole new different world.
As we reached Thamel by 7:00 am we had missed the bus going to the Last Resort which is at Tatopani which is close to the Tibetan boarder and the spot for all the adventure sports. We freshened up at The Trekker's home and then went to the office and asked them to help us get a cab. Unfortunately there was a strike and the cabs and buses were not running around the city. Therefore we went to a travel agent and asked for a cab , luckily we got on and we left by 11:00 am . The Last Resort staff was really helpful as we gave us the contacts of the locals and the staff at Tatopani.
