Mr. Ang Tsering Sherpa, President of Kushudebu public health mission leaded the trackers of 16 members. Initially the journey became very challenging as all the flights to Phaplu was cancelled due to scheduled maintenance of radar at Trivuban International airport at Kathmandu. So we planned our journey to Medical center by bus. The route was planned from Kathmandu to Ramechhap then to Phaplu and finally Medical center. As Ramechhapa is undeveloped rural place, there is no any good facility of lodging and fooding. But we should be very thankful to our guest that they did not made any complain instead they were very happy and enjoying the adventure. After this unforgettable journey to Ramechhapa, next day we took flight to Phalpu and reached to Medical center.
