Well clearly, the Asia's second biggest valley is not for the faint hearted and for those who tend to give up in between because after reaching a certain point, there's no looking back. And clearly, I was terrified at the sight of 45ft rappelling! But I did it anyways. With bruised hands and broken legs, I completed this trek, and no words can express the way I felt after safely reaching Dehene village 🙈

At night, the sky was full of stars! What a sight it was, laying on a rock, besides a bonfire and listening to the soft music, sipping a cup of chai♥️😍 It was heaven for me!
