Nepal Short Trekking Trip, Day 3: Nagarkot to Dhulikhel

After a good night rest, the drama that happened last night went unnoticed in the morning. It was very misty in the morning so we didn't got much of mountain views but was delighted anyway to witness a sunrise that (again) looked like an egg yolk! After having lived far away from the coast for many years, the privilege to witness any sunrise or sunset is like rare gem. It has made me forgotten how beautiful simple things looked like.

Nagarkot which is a much more developed place compared to Chisapani is a famous tourist area due to its easy access via vehicles. There are good roads from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel, so our friends and porters went ahead on a car ride while JB and I continued on by foot.

The trekking route from Nagarkot to Dhulikhel is awesome. Distance wise it was almost similar with Day 2, however as we had more things to see along the way (with plenty of shades), it made our today felt tireless.

Almost 1/3 of today's journey were trekking across mustard plantations. And they are just beautiful...! This reminds us instantly of Jesus's teaching on having the faith of a mustard seed... He said "If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, 'Move from here to there,' and it will move. Nothing will be impossible to you." (Matthew 17:20) - a teaching which is so apt for us on that particular day...

So having been all psyched up, JB and I marched on full steam ahead... and for the first time over 3 days, we managed to get to our destination before the sun even shows sign of setting down. Thank you Jesus!

Here's Dulikhel from afar. It was taken from a distance which is another 1hrs trek away. However it looks so much like the promise land that we rejoice upon seeing it.
