Starting the day early, the simmering rain awakened my senses. Still not sure, should I go on this venture, I kept on pondering and in the rush, I decided to go, for there was nothing to lose. Having reached earlier at the office premises, I was disappointed not to find anyone. After a brief moment (which seemed eternal), the four of us, set out on the quest. The crowd was filled with youthful exuberance. After a fulfilling breakfast, the platoon head through the trails and path leading to muddy fields and humid maize plantations. We stopped couple of times to ask the villagers for directions only to be bewildered by their stark remarks on the length of the route. After four hours brisk walking and falling a couple of times, I was glad that I made it, even though I naive enough to show up with a pair of slippers on a hiking trip!

This experience made me realize, its good to break a sweat once a while…. and I am looking forward to many more hiking trips in the future.

    We could do bit longer if we wanted to. What would you think about it? Nevertheless you are quick and energetic companion and thanks.

    I thought i will burn out due to the sun and heat. But it was really cool due to air and trees. Four hour hiking is the best hiking time.
