Though I Cant Fly Like A Bird But I Can Ride Above Them. ( Mountain biking from Nagdanda To Pokhara Through Sarangkot and Kaskikot)

This is the best experience I had with my mountain bike.I want to thank  my brother for this awesome biking experience because he did same trail opposite way  and riding was all up hill so I decided  to go downhill for that i have to start my journey from Naudada  and riding there is a energy consuming and time consuming task but i didn’t had time that day. I decided to take a bus form  Baglung busparI k it was just 15 min ride from my home. This time I was well prepared than before. I had camel water bag, Headlight and basic tools to maintain my bike on the way.

It took me half an hour to reach me there. After they drop me I bought two juices and a noodles and headed my way and…….

It was jaw dropping experience through beautiful village of Kaskikot. On my left there was beautiful and quiet forest and on my right a spectacular view of Fewa lake. Riding through kaskikot led me to sarangkot famous tourist place to see sunrise on pokhara  and take off zone of  world famous paragliding. All I was doing was snapping photos and asking people for the route because I didn’t know the trail well. First I had  planned to finish my journey on Bagar( Near Bindhawasini Temple )  but  amazingly I ended up in Khapaudi ( Near fewa lake). If anyone is trying to go for mountain biking in Pokhara I recommend everyone this awesome trail. Do not worry about the route or taking wrong  turn because you cant get lost here at least physically but I cant guarantee for your mind because it could by the beauty of this wonderful trail.

Oh my god!!!!!!! I got lucky again ( Mountain Biking form Ratomato Hill to My Home lake side )

Who have thought I can use my mobile and my bag to use it to shoot my journey. This trail got wide variety of choices we can go up to Methlang , sarangkot or we can take some side trails for professionals or anyone can start a journey from Ratomato Hill ( Pokhara ,parsyang  ) to lakeside. I think I should change My name to Mr.Lucky……………

I Am The Luckiest Person Of The world (Mountain Biking From Fewa Lake to Rupa Lake)

I am lucky because I live in Pokhara ( Eighth natural wonder and paradise ). It keeps surprising me everyday and it is full of wonders nevertheless you are willing to do little extra hard work for it.
By little I actually meant little( very little). After just walking less than a hour you can earn yourself a spectacular view of nature but what if you have a mountain bike?………….

I am new in mountain biking. I recently bought a second hand Giant Revel 3 a hard-tail beginner mountain bike. After a operation and suffering from anemia I wanted a new adventure In my life so that’s when I bought a mountain bike. It was a normal Saturday( in my country we have vacation on Saturday) I was sitting in front of my bike and staring at it and thinking where should I  go. Thena idea popped into my head lets go to Dobilla . So I packed two apples , a towel , a knife , a headlight and a rope in my bag. I wore my helmet and headed for my destination point (For who dont know where dobilla is its straight road when you reach International Mountain Museum matepani, pokhara ).

It was normal ride with nice road so I decided to go off road. After riding for one and half hour i was amazed by fact that more i go farther more I see Girls ( 😀 it’s normal to see a girl but they were not normal village girls but a city girls with nice clothing ) but as far I knew i was far far from city because i was riding for more than hour, i was riding off road there were only few houses and a symmetry around . I had no idea what was happening .
As I was riding along the Gandaki river the view was spectacular I snapped some photo and stared my journey again.

Then I came across the bridge i crossed it

and after riding 5 minutes i found myself in a highway!!!!!!! and I was in Gagangauda and there was board writing way to Pokhara University. That was not normal too because as I knew I was riding south to pokhara and Pokkhara University is on east but I got the answer of where those beautiful girls were coming from.
I was bit dissapointed because i expected to reach some very quite place with few people and nice view where i could have those two apples i packed before 😀 but i was in the middle of the city.
I decided to continue my journey unitl I reach to base of the hill in front of me. I rode though many round about and i randomly choose the turns.After riding for about an hour i reached a paddy field it was yellow and aroma of the paddy was something stuck in my nose.

Riding thorough it was fun and suddenly a view in front of my eyes made me to stop. I was speech less and i was not expecting that. I never felt so lucky

It was a lake in front of me a beautiful lake. After scanning through the board with my eyes I got shocked that i am in front of Rupa lake . I always wanted to go to Rupa lake and i was planning to go there soon but i never thought i will be there without me knowing. Random trail , random turns and I am in the place where I always dreamt to be. My excitement was at it’s peak as I was riding around Rupa lake.

On a way I got a biking competition with a small local boy whose name was Nabin Tamang who was studying on class 4 after he challenged me .

After saying good bye to my small competitor I thought “finally i can eat my those two apples”.
I bought a Mirinda form nearby small shop and sat by the lake shore below the big tree. Snapped some photo. It was like heaven to sit on forgotten but beautiful rupa lake.
