The trip had started to get exciting as we started the longest ride of the tour (approx.360 kms) to Lumbini. We continued to move on the East-West Highway as we passed Lamahi and Chanaute. Being a long day, the riders were moving at their own pace stopping at different spots as per convenience.I took a pitstop at Bhalwang, which was also the onset of a minor ghats stretch with a few winding roads to offer. Lunch stop was near Butwal, another major town close to Bhairahava-Sanauli border. We enjoyed some delicious dumplings and thukpa for lunch (now it felt like Nepal).The final leg of the day was till Lumbini via Bhairava border. We reached Hotel Buddha Maya Garden around sunset and called it a day soon.
