Neckbreakers are what I call the mountains in which I live. I won’t lie, one of the things that I love about living Nepal is quite possibly also one of the things that I hate. Trekking/hiking. I love it. I hate it. I live a confusing life. I love it because walking through the beautiful country side is beautiful. It is amazing to see your progress as you move, you hike over mountains- you cross mountains. Nothing makes you feel more accomplished than saying that you walked a couple mountains this morning. But, in the walking up and down mountains holds the part I love…. walking down mountains…and the part that I loathe…walking up. Walking up mountains literally makes me want to cuss, but I am too busy trying to breathe to try speaking. For me, the walking isn’t that bad- but it’s the altitude. Coming from an area that is below sea level and moving to a mountain where I am a couple thousand meters above sea level. So going on week long treks make me nervous, but oh well. ke garne.
While staying in the far west, I needed to break in my hiking boots a little better before having to wear them for a full week. So I went on a walk- because I live on the top of a
mountain- you just find a road and start walking down. It starts as a paved road, then it turns off into a dirt road, then it becomes a dusty road, then you walk through some fields- all the while searching for a river. Finally reaching the river- which is more like a stream- you realize that you have to walk all the way back up. Let me tell you, you never realize how far you walked until you have to climb up a mountains.
If anyone ever happens to find some neck breakers to climb and “walk” around on- let me advise you to take water and sunscreen- because you never know how long its gonna take and if you are anything like me- you are going to get lost on the mountainside and end up a mountain away from where you need to be.
