After more than one months of bed rest, I planned for picnic with my friends. Picnic is one of the ways to meet old friends and have fun. I am really excited about picnic because two of my best friends from school accompanied me whom I met after 8 years after finishing school. We choose Kakani as our picnic spot. Kakani is the nearest destination from Kathmandu which is situated 24 kilometers northwest from Kathmandu. This place is perfect for short excursion.
It is also hot spot for picnic. We can see beautiful forests, steep hills, pine and oak trees and our national flower rhododendron submerged in the beauty of Kakani.
It is stunning place for spectacular views. It is a place to cherish beautiful sunrise and sunset. Above all, this place is famous for the sights of the mountain landscapes around the capital, including the views of the majestic peaks stretching from Ganesh Himal to the Annapurna and Dhaulagiri ranges. But due to gloomy weather we are unable to get glimpse of magnificent mountain range. The beautiful horizon is no more visible. The beautiful Himalayan range is covered with fog.
The air covered with mist and we can see clouds hovering in the air. The frigid fog lingers embracing the whole Picnic is one way to make gloomy weather hot and fun. Though the weather is chilly and gloomy, we brightened it with fun, laughter, and entertainment. Apart from all these we enjoyed the chilly weather throughout the day. We light fire, sit around, and start singing a song, telling jokes, recite poems and making fun of each other.
Further, Kakani is well-known for cycling and biking. Famous for trout and strawberry farming, It welcomes the visitors to International Mountaineers Memorial Park on its southern side too. Moreover, either for short hikers or bikers garlands the experiences of better views of sunrise and sunset. It is indeed a gateway to paradise. The nature’s perfect choice gives a short escort from the maddening crowd of Kathmandu, an emerging jungle of concrete. After all this trip was memorable and never to be erased.
