Waking up early in the morning we deaparted for Bishnu Ayurved Herbal Production Farm situated in dharmapur, Chitwan where we were warmly received by active proprietor Mr. Dandapani Kafle. We astarted our first session with Yoga which was facilitated by Dandaoani Kafle. After yoga session, we were made to visit herbal farms where we could easily identified various MAPS like Sapragandha, Kurilo, Tulsi, Neem, Gurjo, etc. Towards the end, we were provided with herbal tea prepared in the same place.
After taking final sip of herbal tea, we immediately headed for District Ayurveda Health Centre, which is located at the heart of Tandi. Amid some troubles with our bus, we successfully reached our destination. Some snaps were taken, we were informed about various startegies that DAHC was taking to promote Ayurveda. After verbal interaction, we made visit to Farms which was not properly managed as per DAHC standard. Nevertheless, the place has many new plants including some rare and expensive plants as well.
It was already midday and students were starving. So before reaching the final destination we had some snack at Naraynaghard.
