Adi goes up to check the room availability in the first lodge that we see. I am not going to move an inch until I get confirmation from Adi. As I hear his voice from the top, I climb up only to find him lying on the floor with everyone standing near him laughing at us. We told them the entire story while having Dhal Bhat.The fact that we have to wake up at 5 in the morning to see the sunrise from Poon hill is so frightening but with the satisfaction that we reached the destination unlike last time, we can close our eyes for the day.

At the end of April, I left Goa with everything I owned in a single 50 Litre backpack and 200$ to my name which I had after saving Christmas and birthday gifts. I set off to Nepal traveling 3000kms in 4 days by land. I ended up couch surfing for the first time in Kathmandu and met some incredible people also met a local in charge of a refugee camp and I spent a week helping out build up the toilets for the refugee camp. It was an incredible experience!
