The road was dusty and muddy road. It was very risky and challenging to drive there. Our motorcycle was moving from left to right and sometimes the dust was coming the same as the fug. It was hilarious.

We covered our heads using a scarf but the dust was over our heads. That was one of the craziest rides of my life. but now the political leader of Nepal’s trying to upgrade that road.

After few years back the road will be very nice. I hope so. After the Leguwa Bazar, we crossed the Dikure and Pakhirbas. Finally, we reached Hile Bazaar.
