CSITAN Farewell/Welcome program plus Outing
Saturday, 05 September 2015
Location: Kakani – Shivapuri Hiking trail
Duration: 11 hrs (0700 hrs – 1800 hrs)
There were in total 20 participants. We gathered Machhapokhari Chowk, Kathmandu at 7 o’clock in the morning for the program. The participants consisted of the members from current tenure as well as the previous and past tenures.
After having breakfast at a local ‘Khaja Pasal’ we boarded a bus headed to Kakani. After around two hours of the jolting ride on the majestic hills we reached Kakani. We distributed the rations among each other and then walked for a hour to reach the picnic spot. We did a mini picnic there and continued for the Shivapuri trail.
The way was treacherous, we were lost most of the time. However it was fun to share such moments with the team. After 3-4 hours of trekking we reached a clearing in the forest and conducted a semi-formal farewell-welcome program for our team members. Then we climbed down the hill to reach Kavresthali village. We waited for the bus to Balaju there, reminiscing the day. After reaching Balaju at around 6 o’clock in the evening, we headed to our homes.
Overall, it was an amazing experience, totally unexpected but fun. It was not quite as we had hoped it to be; but it was more, in spite of the minor differences between us, at the end of the day esprit de corps(team spirit) prevailed.
