The jeep on the trip back to Achham from Dhangadi encountered a malfunction. However, Ramesh, the driver, fixed the problem. The trip from Dhangadi to Bayalpata Hospital lasts 10 hours. Although the views are breathtaking, the car has to travel on meandering mountainous roads. Most of Nyaya's medicine comes from Dhangadi. During the monsoons, there are very frequent land slides and road blocks, which delay the delivery of medicine and important supplies to hospital.
