Trip to Melamchighyang
By: Pravesh Pradhan
I was in a very much-needed fresh nature break from work and a monotonous life. Hence, I had joined my friends for a short impromptu weekend trip to Melamchighyang, a well-known hiking destination.
The destination is not so far from the city on the map, a mere 75km away from Kathmandu. That being said, it is a fact that nothing worth comes that easy. We started our drive at seven in the morning and drove along with continuous wonderful views throughout the journey, which came in forms of Himalayas, mountains, rivers, villages, etc. Since the road leading to the destination was not an express highway and as we were traveling on monsoon season, the drive was more than an adventurous one. Thanks to the season though, we bypassed a few very beautiful waterfalls.
