A 21-year-old has claimed to have trekked from Mechi in the east to Mahakali in the west wishing for world peace, happiness, prosperity, national harmony and integrity.

Abhinaya Karki, 21, of Kalinchowk Rural Municipality-3 in Dolakha district, said he had embarked on the trip on his birthday on March 2 from the Mechi Bridge in Jhapa and concluded it on April 9 upon reaching Gaddachauki-based Nepal-India border pillar number 805-1 (7) in Kanchanpur district in Mahakali.

He shared that he had carried the national flags of over 100 countries during his journey for the specific reason.

Though he had estimated that it would take about two months for him to complete the trip, he concluded it on the 37th day. He travelled around 1,200 kilometres over the course of his journey.

Talking to mediapersons at his home district Dolakha, he said he was preparing to set out for another 100-day bicycle tour covering all 77 districts of Nepal, soon.
