I saw our instructor Vaibhav standing tall on the rock without any support & with big rise smile on his face, which was towards us. I murmured to Angad, hey as climbing ha roj karat asel, nahi? (Isn't it looks like a cake walk for him?) Angad responded back with a well-pronounced thumbs up.
The people who were finding it difficult, Vaibhav & his mates rescued them!
Focused or timid? No, but the first adjective suits him better and so was he doing.
We really started growing in confidence after surpassing the complexed hurdle without any aid. We both kept on telling each other that, bro we are just about to reach there. But sometimes, these just about-to-reach are longer than the fortnights, aren't they? Yes, there was still a lot to go through.
Moral of the picture: Girls can literally pose anywhere before a camera, even if their next foot could be in the deep valley. :D
I chuckled behind my covered face. Indeed, it was a just narrow strip of screes to walk on. I teased her about the same when we got back down. :D These funny moments in the midst were helping us to shrug off the nervousness.
I could have sat there all days & all nights without making a fuss of! I was in awe, it was just magical, to sit in such a serene ambience. I wish could have taken that place back home; I loved it!
You should get an award for doing this all alone but, somehow you successfully managed to steal the attention of your fellows. Time to switch the job! :P :D
At this moment, I stopped glanced down, wow how far we have come! It seemed inaccessible at the morning breakfast from the base.
You know, there is a quite amazing theory behind the picnics. Once you get back home after an excursion, you realize - your bonding has strengthened. No explanation!
I'm not sure, what we were discussing about - definitely not girls! :P :D We were just a few hundreds of meters above the sea level, we could have even rocked in the heaven as well, or hell for that matter. ;) :D
Finally, there - this was my solo picture, that too without my knowledge, or candid as they say. :D Propelling through some more boulders before we wind up.
Not sure, how many calories we have burnt, but the Sun was burning quietly above our heads. On many occasions, we played reptiles, quite a childhood memory. :)
I, personally, am a huge lover of landscapes. I don't know how this is? But I enjoyed every unit of time I spent up there.
I don't need to say anything. The picture itself says a lot. Remember the excursion & friendship link that I just mentioned?
Quite a thumping number it was!
This is the magic of wide angle lens.
This girl was way behind when we started off the trek. And we found her just in time with us at the finishing line. I learnt, she indeed is quite adventurous & inspirational. Thank you!
I had a wonderful trip with this idiot. I must confess here, I was in this trek because of his initiative, so thanks a ton. Brother, we made it to the top & rocked it.
One thing that I always do unknowingly that - I offer thankfulness to this gracious nature & it responds by making me astonished on every next meeting of ours! And that amplifies my belief that, yes I'm a tiny part of this nature.
And finally, here I was with my signing off selfie, from 616 meters above sea level.
This trek taught me something that, I'll cherish for the rest of my life. That was -- You got to trust the nature, especially when you're on an adventure, in it. If you trust it wholeheartedly, I'm sure your adventure will have more thrill.
