A hiker from Nepal is determined to travel from Bangladesh’s Teknaf to Tetulia on foot, having already crossed Sri Lanka, India, and his own country. 

The man, Eho, has currently crossed Joypurhat, reports Bangla Tribune.

He is a resident of Thapathali area of Kathmandu, the capital of Nepal.  

Meanwhile, Homaed Ishaque Moon, a Bangladeshi travel writer and photographer, became this young Nepali traveler’s companion.

Eho told this correspondent that he dropped out of school at the age of 14, to pursue his passion for travelling. He left his home some 236 days ago to travel and explore to Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, and Bangladesh on foot.

On September 18, he reached Teknaf’s Shahporir Dwip, and started his journey toward Panchagarh’s Tetulia. He reached Joypurhat at around 5pm on Friday, reports Bangla Tribune.

He said that he had already crossed some 723km so far, and thoroughly enjoyed Bangladesh’s green nature and the hilly roads. 

“The people of the northern part of this country are more loving than the people of the southern part regions. They are very hospitable. The lifestyle and culture of Bangladesh are great,” said Eho.

Meanwhile, Homaed told Bangla Tribune that he is very happy to be a part of Eho’s journey. “It feels very good because a person from another country has come to our homeland I can introduce him to the people of this country, which makes me feel happy.”

“Walking with him and teaching him about Bangladesh is what I enjoy most. Eho has found several cultural differences between Bangladesh and Nepal. And I too, have started realizing that,” he added.

Eho mentioned that he will walk to his home country Nepal again on foot, reports Bangla Tribune.
