The third attempt to scale the Shivapuri Peak was much easier.
Was lost when took the wrong direction from the Baba’s hut at Baghdwar. The jungle onward from Baghdwar becomes truly a wild one. Gigantic trees, thick bushes, fallen logs, and eerie sounds. But did not encounter any wildlife except the monkeys in my last hike. and the birds…enjoyed the birds taking me as a predator and chirping and following my movements as they do when a cat goes near their nest…Still every hiker I found on the trail including myself seemed fearful of encountering one.
I could have asked the Babas at the Baghdwar for the way to the Shivapuri height. But what I enjoyed most…and also felt proud to answer yes was “Are you alone?”Later I also found the direction signs on a tree near the Baba’s Kuti & temple.
