In the morning, we have an option to hike to Indra Gufa (Cave), which is 2-3 hrs two-way trip from Kaule. Indra Gufa is a famous cave in the region. While trekking back from Indra Gufa we also can visit a small multi-cultured village of Dangshi Marang. The village manifests diverse cultures of Newars, Damais, Kamis and Brahmins. If we plan to skip this morning hike to Indra Gufa, the day’s trek is relatively short. We begin the trek from Kaule along the descending trail to a small marketplace of the region, Ramkot. From Ramkot we tread on the descending jungle trail to Sarke Bhanjyang. Sarke Bhanjyang has couple of abandoned houses. From Sarke Bhanjyang, the trek begins to climb up through the dense jungle over the stony steps all the way to Mohoria. This part of the trek is fascinating. Gradual walk uphill along the forest trail, encounters the natives, witnesses the lifestyle of mid-hill Nepal (people collecting timbers) and sights several species of colorful birds. Almost ninety minutes of uphill walk through the forest brings us to another small mid-hill settlement of Mohoria. We have our lunch at Mohoria. Mohoria is small and organized village in the region. After the lunch at Mohoria, we hike up along the stony steps to a small Monastery. The view from the Monastery includes the panorama of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Annapurna Ranges, Lamjung Himal and Gorkha Peak. Then we slide down quickly from the monastery, tread for five minutes along the motor-road and then enter the trails inside the woods via a volleyball court. Now, walking through the forest trails offers us an opportunity to sight many species of colorful birds. We walk through this forest trail for almost forty-five minutes. The final push to Chisapani stretches along the trail on the right that goes vertically up on the stony steps. As we reach the top, we see a small temple in the middle of the jungle. Trekking further on a leveled trail, we arrive to Chisapani. Chisapani is a small Gurung Village, which offers the great views of Himalayas, hills and terraced fields. It is also a culturally rich Gurung Village. Plus, the sunset view from Chisapani is fascinating. The wonderful pattern of the green Hills cuddling to each other and the last hill seen on the horizon changing its color when sun sets is a wow view from Chisapani. We will stay today at Chisapani in the home-stay lodges operated by the locals.

The ride to Kathmandu was a short and smooth affair. We stopped for lunch at small joint in Khandichaur and enjoyed local fish meals served like thalis. Entering Kathmandu via Bhaktapur brought back congested roads and slow-stuck traffic bringing the city blues back again. Kathmandu is densely crowded and still lives in the aftermath of the horrendous earthquakes of 2015. With the town covered in dust and smog throughout, every face on street has a filter mask on. By evening we reached Hotel Manaslu (a traditional Nepalese hospitality experience) in Lazimpat.

The following morning we headed back to Pokhara taking the same route. Morning showers turned the route slushy making the descent more challenging than initially thought. Moving ahead, the riders literally stopped and kissed the road as we hit leveled tarmac after 3 days. It had been quite a spell.

Once the capital of the Magadha Empire which later evolved to become the Mayryan Empire, Rajgir is a valley surrounded by hills. This is a very important seat of Buddhist worship in Nalanda, Bihar. Hinduism and Jainism are also practised by many out here. Rajgir, earlier known as Rajagriha or the King's home is also known to be a winter health retreat. This is because of the number of pools and natural springs here filled with warm water which have therapeutic values and goo for healing many bone and skin diseases too. The Buddha Temple here is also encompassed with a monastery and is a popular place for meditation. The white colour is a symbol of peace and the gold colour used for the spire of the temple is to show eternity and good taste. The Buddha idol inside has some magic in it that you want to keep on looking at it. The typical peaceful atmosphere of a Buddhist Temple is also found here and this is the prime attraction of this town.
