My first trekking experience with friends
Five years ago when I was still pursuing my engineering in Andhra University, Vishakhapatnam. I and my friends have just finished our midterm exams and we were having a good amount of leisure. So, we all came up with a plan on going for a trip somewhere nearby but everyone has different places in their minds. Somehow the majority of the people were convinced with my plan of going on a trip to araku and explore the food, waterfalls, caves, etc.
Our trip was for 3 days so, we had enough time to cover almost everything in that region.
When I saw the waterfall that close, I felt like anyone can forget all their problems and get lost in the beauty of water tumbling down the mountain. It feels so lively to stand there and witness the marvelous creation of nature. I and my friends spent hours playing in the pool on the top of the hill. Every journey has something new to teach us and I had many takeaways from this one. It truly was an enlightening journey for me personally as I learn a great deal from the challenges that I faced on my trekking expeditions and apply those learnings in my life. Always being optimistic and persistent even when the circumstances are not in favor. Staying humble and understanding that some things happen in due course of time.
