My trip to Kushma and Baglung
Hi, A warm Hello!
Last May, I had been on a trip to Western Nepal. Kathmandu Pokhara Parbat and Baglunbg, I like to share with you this amazing trip which i made after 15 years in this place. Pokhara is a world famous tour destination, but, Kushma and Baglung are not that famous even in domestic tour. The reason i am mentioning here is, how can it be that such a wonderful places like Kushma, Parbat and Baglung are overlooked by Nepalese.
The highlights of my Kushma Baglung trip
Baglung Devi Temple, Gupteshwor Gufa, Kali Gandaki, Three Longest suspension Bridges in Nepal over Kali Gandaki in Kushma, Great Hill roads, Panaromic Mountain Views, Tasty food, Boating in Phewa Taal, Paragliding in Pokhara, Lumle and many more

5:30 AM. Kathmandu
It is lovely morning in Kathmandu. My family is excited and ready for the trip. Morning road is empty. We are so excited that we don’t even want to take coffee at home. We are planning to take our first coffee at Malekhu .
8:30 AM. Malekhu
We did not stop at Naubishe even if we feel like taking breakfast due to our promise to stop direct at Malekhu. When we reach there, we checked menu in the restaurants along the street. We took local fish and Roti. Also the fish soup was real tasty. My wife took three bowls of soup. Also we took some fruits to eat while driving. Then we moved towards Mugling. The view from car window while driving is amazing along the Trishuli river. We can see rafting in Trishuli river parallel to our driving. We can hear people screaming in rafting. At the same time we planned the next tour as rafting, but which river is yet to decide.
10:30 AM. Mugling
Mugling was once popular for its typical Nepali food. But now a days, there are many restaurants scattered along the highway. We stopped at at Mugling to take some photographs. We decided to take our Launch at Dumre.
1:30 AM. Dumre
It was surprisingly tasty lunch in Dumre. We stopped by a household restaurant. We did not expect it to be so tasty. Local chicken, potato and cauliflower curry and daal was mouth watering.
3:30 AM. Pokhara
We checked in a pre-booked hotel in Lake Side Pokhara. Then we went our for Lakeside walking . It was cool Atomosphere in Pokhara. Very clean city with wide roads. At some places roads were being reconstructed. It was lovely rainy evening. We stopped by a lakeside restaurant to taste Pizza due to children demand. Once we get in, the rain started to get strong. That’s why, we decided to take dinner there and invited one of our family friend. We enjoyed Draft Beer in Pokhara that evening .

Early morning we move towards Kushma Parbat. Once we reach Naudanda, wow, the snow capped Machhapuchhre wnd Annapurna Mountain range view was mind blowing. We stopped to take photographs.
Then we continued our driving, we pass through Modi Khola Hydropower station, Patichaur, Dimuwa and finally reached Kushma.
We then went to popular Longest Suspenson Bridge over Kali Gandaki and Modi Khola. No one had told me that there are three longest and tallest suspension bridge in that location. When i reached there, i was shocked. Oh man, at first it was scary. We saw some motorcycles also passing by that bridge. The weather of that day, view of three longest bridges, the local food , unimaginable experience. Words can’t explain that moment. Also there is future plan for Bungy Jumping from those bridges according to information from locals. For sure, it will be one of the world top Bungee Jumping Destination. We stayed longer at Kushma to finish all sight seeing.
Then we moved to Balgung Devi for Darshan. The cleanliness at Balgung Devi Temple area is appreciable. Along the road between Baglung and Kushma, we saw a big and tall waterfall. It was pretty amazing. We took several photographs around that area. The silent beauty of that area is unique.
Then we returned back to Kushma and spent Night there. Next day we returned back to Kathmandu.
