PBL7 Hike to Jagadol

On January 20th, the seventh-grade students of PBL embarked on an invigorating hike to Jagadol, under the guidance of Amics del Nepal’s staff. Jagadol offers an excellent trail for beginners, featuring a manageable yet consistently gradual incline. The hike’s primary aim was to foster a deeper connection with nature, allowing students to appreciate and understand the shared environment they inhabit. Moreover, hiking not only contributes to physical well-being but also cultivates stronger bonds among peers through effective communication and mutual care.

The excursion commenced at 9:00 A.M. sharp, with all participants eagerly assembling at the Amics Activity Centre. From there, we embarked on a brief ten-minute walk to Chuchepati, followed by an enjoyable 20-minute tempo ride to Panitanki, Arab bank. After gearing up, the students eagerly began the hike. After an hour of long walk, we encountered the historic Dhunge-Dhara, where we paused to quench our thirst and refill our water bottles before resuming the journey. Arriving at our destination, Jagadol, we relished a satisfying home-cooked lunch amidst the breathtaking view of Kathmandu city. The students engaged in a spirited game of Rumal Lukai, a popular Nepali pastime, followed by a session of badminton at the public open ground nearby. Subsequently, the students were safely transported back to the Activity Centre, concluding the day’s adventure. Despite fatigue, the students expressed immense satisfaction in immersing themselves in nature and spending quality time with friends during the holiday. Amics del Nepal remains committed to organising such enriching activities, including sports, and theatrical events, in the foreseeable future.

This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
