The project site lies on the way to Tamakoshi Hydropower Project. This way is also trekking route to Gauri Sanker mountain. I was lodged in a hotel owned by the parents of youngest person to scale Mt. Everest. Stayed there for 3 nights.

Met Mr. Pitamber Badu (chairman of Lama construction company) an interesting middle age man. It was irresistible to drink beer when he requested. With drink there was a lot of talks we made. And with the company of the hotel owners, the fun doubled.

On the first day, we travelled from Kathmandu to the project site. The vehicle was available upto Jamune only. Due to lack of bridge, we had to do trekking. A good thing indeed. It took 2 hrs to reach the project site. It was dark when we had reached there. With conversation with Rabin Nepal and Prahlad chaudhary, it took no time to reach the project site.

The next day after reaching the project site, we inspected all the components of project. It took whole day to do that. We reached hotel at the late evening.

On the third day, almost all the official work had been completed, however we stayed there and inspected the project area. Walked through the village. Chirng was with us while roaming around. He was a funny person too.

That night Mr. Badu was absent because he had left the site on the morning. But with Pawan Yadav, Rabin Nepal and Prahlad Chaudhary, we made the evening colourful too.

On the afternoon of next day we left to Kathmandu. On the way i had noticed a shape of hills resembling to shape of Hanuman. It was a mystic experience. It was 9 pm when i had reached home. Thanks to Madav ji, who droved us home safely.
