Rajan Thapaliya traveled across the western Nepal on a bus trip along the dangerous roads between high mountains. Usually, tourists are not taken to such areas unless they are familiar with somebody in the area. Foreign travelers often come associated with some with some NGOs/INGOs like Care Nepal International, Red Cross Society, etc. JICA International associates from Japan are often seen contributing in the health care industries in the most remote parts of the country. The most extraordinary engineering feat in Nepal, the Karnali Bridge was actually built by a Japanese company which still stands as a fantastic feat of architect above the longest river flowing in Nepal.
Karnali Bridge is a popular travel destination for Nepalese who live on the far western side of the country. Bardia National Park lies right next to the bridge. I could see wild lotuses blooming amongst the fresh ponds untouched by any modern air.
Talking about Nagarkot, it is a great spot for picnic and parties. One can enjoy the Himalayan range consisting of Annapurna and Mount Everest from the cliff of Nagarkot. Watching sunrise and sunset from the cliff of Nagarkot is also very famous and an eye-pleasing sight. No human have been able to build such structures up to this moment.
