TEEN PIPLI RICE FIELD PLUNGE WITH TOKHA

1 Days

After a breakfast we ride from our office in Thamel towards northwest of Kathmandu city. A 15 minutes ride will get us out of the crazy city traffic and we ride around the base of Nagarjun forest also known as Raniban (Queen's forest). While you ride enjoy the beautiful scene of terraced rice and mustard fields and surrounding clusters of thatch-topped and ocher-mudded houses. After crossing the Osho Tapoban Forest Retreat Centre on Kakani Road we reach to the "Teenpipli" village. Literally Teenpipli means three Pipal Trees but unfortunately heavy storm has left only 2 of them surviving at the moment. After taking rest or fueling yourselves in the Chautara (resting spot) we take a dirt road beyond the Pipal tree and plunge into the beautiful paddy field mostly off road. Depending upon the season, you may see farmers engaged in growing rice, wheat or mustard. Then we climb to one of the most beautiful places called Tokha from where you can see a superb view of the Kathmandu valley. We also visit Bhimsen Temple (a deity worshipped for strength and courage), Kali temple and village cremation grounds. Kali is a female aspect of Shiva and both are recognized as giver and taker of life. After taking some rest, we head back to Thamel from Budhanilkantha. Don't forget to visit a large sculpture of sleeping Vishnu on gigantic serpent).
