A break on the walk from Ilam Bazaar to Sukrabare in Namsaling VDC in Ilam Bazaar. This was taken in 1997 or 98, long before a road was put in and before electricity.
I walked this quite a few times with Hom Nath Sir, a friend and Nepalese mentor while I was living in Nepal. At the time he was the Executive Director of the Namsaling Community Development Centre (NCDC), the NGO I was a volunteer with. He spent many years as a teacher and headmaster before running the NGO. Hom Nath Sir is now retired and welcomes old and new friends in his guest house in Ilam.
This walk took (for me anyway) about three to four hours despite the not so great distance as a crow flies but I’m not a crow. Ilam Bazaar is at 1200m, the Mai Khola (river) at 500m and Sukrabare at 1600m.
