When our journey started in Kakani. A black cloud was brought to the sky in Kathmandu, but we made our way ahead. When we arrived at Kathmandu Ring Road, we felt very happy. The journey of the jungle, the dark clouds in the sky, the cool breeze and even the sight of Kathmandu made us feel paradise. Enjoying taking pictures of the spectacular scenery visible on the street, we were on our way earlier but the sky started to rain. Even though it started to rain, our travels became more exciting, with no interruptions.

Almost there we were approaching Kakani, the water started to drop a lot and we had a corn sack on the other side of the road and we stopped there and started eating corn. The corn was very tasty and sweet. When the water subsided, our trip to Park resumed. You stayed in the park and took the food to the nearest store to eat. Finally, we reached Park. The view there was absolutely delightful. We stayed there for some time, enjoyed the scenery and took our journey back to Kathmandu.
