You will feel like the hike just started and it will end. However, you will cherish the beautiful view of Kathmandu valley from the top, panoramic view of mountains including Langtang, the paddy fields of Likhu valley. This can be a beautiful opportunity to re-energize yourself if you are very busy with your work/studies and life has become monotonous.
