Income and expenses
Day 119 | 15 Dec 2018 | 71KM | Trisuli, Nuwakot
I was warned by my host about one settlement on the way. They said that people there were notorious for robbing visitors. I don’t trust on labeling people by their birth place or community and wanted to be unbiased. But after listening to them, I was subconsciously making myself aware of the surroundings. Nothing unexpected happened besides the condition of road was worst there after.
After weeks of abuse on off road, my bike was showing fatigues. The hydraulic brake was jamming the dish and the chain was also about to break apart. At one spot, I nearly had an accident due to it but there was no other option to repair. I moved on after my workaround fixes.
Dhunche is district headquarter of Rasuwa and the gateway to Gosainkunda and Lamtang National Park trekking. Beautiful National Park gate was few km ahead of the bazaar. Foreigner would have to check in at the gate but not for Nepali. The white mountain range on the horizon was energizing. I had encountered snow on my trek to Gosaikunda few years back, then after whenever I thought of snow, Gosaikunda used to come into my imagination. That snow covered surroundings and the crunchy sound of shoes on the fresh snow!
After having mid day snacks at Dhunche, painted the slogan and returned back to Gumbadanda. There I had my pannier. Grabbed the panniers and there was that downhill to enjoy till Trisuli. It was the same way that was a troublesome climb yesterday, but today it was fun. Since I started the cycling trip, I had started compare climb as earning, and downhill as expense. If I hadn’t earned the altitude yesterday, I won’t be able to spend that today. Just some stupid analogy to keep myself motivated on the gardiant.
Stayed at Trishuli bazaar, with a plan to enter Sindhupalchwok, from south of Kathmandu.
