Visit To Daman Palung KATHMANDU

Posted by Dhruba shrestha Jan 2, 2017 :
Daman trek is now a fine memory, four days later, and now after a day at work in the sands of Abu Dhabi. As always hiking in Nepal lived up to expectation and delivered a great experience. We started from Palung an area full of verdant vegetable gardens. The way to Daman was gradual, rich with rhododendrons, easy on the feet and fine for reestablishing Chi balance. We did not encounter any downhill travelers this time, save an old women carrying straw. March is a ripe season for hiking in the Himalayan countryside and it is a great gift that some of the trails have remained hidden from the overwhelming tourists. We had lunch at a fine house at the summit, with lovely stone stairway. I really have to admit that the beer never tasted better. Furthermore we were rewarded with a brief glimpse of Mt. Langtang. You learn something new on each hike, and this time I learnt that “Ram has eyes in the back of his head.” I bid adieu to my fellow hikers with the following CEO announcements

Traveling gives us the opportunity to disconnect from our regular life. You get to forget your problems/issues for a few weeks, it can also help you figure things out that you would not have understood without the distance traveling can give you. We all have crazy schedules, work and a family to take care of, going away alone or with some friends can give you distance and perhaps even make you realize how important these people are for you. Like the saying says: we never know what we have until we lose it.

Another great benefit is the relaxation you get to do. It’s nice to live life to its fullest and enjoy a stress free time with yourself. Going on vacation lets us recharge our “batteries” by disconnecting us from our regular life. When we come back we feel invigorated and we are happy to be back in our day to day routine. It’s a very good stress remover that has a lot more to give than most people are willing to accept.

Traveling increases our knowledge and widens our perspective. To view new customs, different ways of living is fantastic for the mind. It gives us a new perspective about life and especially our life, it can help us change some of our habits or even create new ones. When I travel I usually make it a point to try new food, some cultures don’t have fries in their diet and they are all skinny, others use spices to give taste and not oils or fats. Discovering different values and ways to get by in life is really interesting. You also need to visit exotic new places and discover what this wonderful world has to offer.
