Our First Experience from Kushma

It was 1st of January 2017, Yes New Year. We stayed at Pokhara on Christmas Eve and celebrated New Year with bunch of crazy college friends. We had no plans for the first day of the year but wanted to do something amazing. So, here we got an idea about traveling to Kushma.

Santosh (friend), suggested us to go to Kusma Bazaar of Parbat district which is just about 57 KM from Pokhara. And he also told that the longest and the tallest suspension bridge lies on Kusma. We were excited and everyone agreed to go there.

All of us were hungry so we went to have light breakfast, then took a local bus to Kusma from Baglung Buspark. The bus was full, wo we sat on front with driver. Through the glass, I could the mesmerizing mountain ranges like Annapurna, Machhapuchhre and Dhaulagiri. Passing beautiful hills, valleys and green forests, we reached to Kusma, which took about 1 and half hour from Pokhara.

At first, we roam around Kusma Bazar for about half an hour and then we had lunch (Masu Bhat). Then took a rest for a while and moved towards the place where the bridge was situated. After walking for 15-20 minutes, we reached to the famous Kushma-Gyadi bridge. I was amazed by the length and height of the bridge. Then we walk on the bridge to reach the other side. To be honest, I was afraid to walk on that bridge though I am not afraid of the heights.

"How could they ride a bike where I can’t even walk fearlessly?"

The view from the middle of the bridge is breathtaking, I am pretty sure that the people with light heart won’t cross that bridge. To cross that bridge I had to catch on the side of the bridges. But the locals were riding bike on that bridge which made me think “How could they ride a bike where I can’t even walk fearlessly?”.

After few minutes, we reached to the next end of the bridge where we took rest for a while in a small hotel and had few drinks, Coca Cola not alcohol. Haha.

Then I noticed a similar bridge few far from that one. And got to know that there are three similar bridges in that area which joins three different places with Kusma, which was making the lives of people easier. Before the bridge was built, people had to walk for hours to reach Kusma Bazar, but now they can reach within minutes.

After taking a rest for a while we moved towards other to bridges. All of them were similar but different lengths and heights. On the end next side of the third bridge, there was a resort which was famous for local fish. So, we had brunch there, fish with gravy and MoMos, and it tasted really good. While we were eating, suddenly it started to rain with hailstones. The view of the surrounding green hills with rain, hailstones and sun looked amazing. For a moment I felt like I was in heaven.

When rain stopped it was already 5PM, and we were planning to return to Kathmandu the same day. So, we returned to Kusma bazar after a while and booked our bus tickets for Kathmandu. Since our bus was leaving around 7PM, we had some time to roam around the bazar.

At 6:40 PM we arrived at our bus and take a seat and rest. Even walking for a whole day, I didn’t feel tired, I think the breathtaking views from the bridges, beautiful people, green hills and mountains took all our pain and tiredness.

With the hope of coming back soon again, we departed to Kathmandu to attend college the next day. He He.

Kusma bazar is on my list of “Must visit places around Pokhara”.
