A Visit to Bhotekoshi

It was a much-awaited outing. We, the Nepal Weekly team, went for an adventurous journey to Bhotekoshi, the place where bungy jumping takes place. We camped at the Last Resort, drank a lot whiskey and beer and sang and danced amid camp firing. It was a superb outing. The memories are still lingering. What could be a better way than portraying it in pictures!

Hungry Journos: See the plates are empty!

While my guitar gently weeps: An unlikely guitarist Bikash Karki, Shailendra (with cap) and me

Canyoning Relaxing Trekking: What not!

Hey he's missing a tune, Bikash seems to say

Heading Home: But there was a brief hiatus at Khothe, Sindhupalchok

Hello world, Here I am: Some Deepak portraits will follow:

What a gory picture of goat slaughter!
It doesnot look like the act of 'slitting' as described. It is more of a 'chopping' than slitting.
