Morning came and we started our trek. The first day of the trek is always tiring. Even though we all started with lot of energy, I was exhausted halfway through the trail. My feet gave way and I decide to sit down. To my surprise I found that he is with me. He decided to hike with me, slowly. This was the gesture that definitely left a mark in my heart.
Later all through the trek, we found the good, better and best qualities in each other. For first timers, the trek was a bit tough at times. He was always smiling and cheering the others, even when he was feeling tired. Seeing him, I got my energy to move forward. He was always there first to volunteering to pitch the tents, packing sleeping bags and helping at the campsite. At that time I knew he was not lazy or laidback. He was one of the most active persons on the trek.
He was definitely the social butterfly in the trek team, always laughing and cracking jokes. Well, by this time, we had started talking to each other! He had the uncanny ability to make me smile even at the strangest situations. I discovered this quality about him in this trek.
Finally when the group reached Sandakphu, we were all excited and exhausted at the same time. Most of our trek mates decided not to go to Phalut the next day. It was a long 21 km trail with no trekkers hut or shop on the way.
