Amazing, fantastic, memorable, adventurous, epic, serene. No adjective can define this trip, still, we have tried to inculcate our experience of this trip in words. Someone once said, Fill Your Life With Experience, Not Things. Have Stories To Tell, Not the Stuff to Show. Keeping above lines in mind, and to relax from our busy schedule, we packed our bags and headed up to a serene place which is considered as a slice of heaven on earth.
This place is Hail Himalayas which is located near Shoghi, a place between Solan and Chail in Himachal Pradesh. We walked for 3 KMs to reach closer to this beautiful place and with every step we were getting goosebumps as we had many expectations from the place. Walking down the road we reached the destination. Oh, My God. What an amazing place with an amazing view.
Every single mouth in our group opened with a WOW expression after looking at the beauty of the place. As we reached, we got a briefing about the trip from the tour guide and he explained all the adventure activities included in our trip. He guided us along all the guidelines with the do’s and don’ts of staying at the place and introduced us to our tents.
Thrilling experiences like Trekking, Camping, Team Building Activities, Rock climbing, Ring walk, Valley crossing were some of the adventure activities which we expected from our visit to Hail Himalayas and when our tour guide started naming the activities, we were putting a check on all our adventure expectations. We were very excited to perform all of them. We performed every task given to us with great enthusiasm and shared our joy with our colleagues.
Finally, evening tea arrived and we sat in a large circle and started Truth and Dare and many other games that made the environment chilling and full of entertainment. No one was senior or junior and every single individual was enjoying leaving behind all the office worries. To our surprise, the weather was a cherry on the cake. Amazing rainy weather with a pinch of cold in it that excited us to enjoy more.
Then we had a bonfire followed by dinner which was the yummiest food at the place. During bonfire, people danced on Punjabi songs and Bollywood numbers. Some talented ToXSLites showed their talent by playing guitar and made the surrounding amazing. Some people were awake till 3 a.m. chatting with one another. With the enthusiasm in the breathes, excitement in the eyes and curiousness in the mind everyone slept a well-deserved sleep to wake up for many unexplored folding of our trip.
The second day started with morning tea followed by a mouthwatering breakfast. It included Chane Bhature, boiled eggs, bread toast that was a treat to our taste buds. After filling our tummies we headed up to a 6-kilometer trek to a waterfall near the temple of Lord Shiva. We bowed our head there and then went to the amazing waterfall where the water was very cold and everyone jumped into the water to take a dip in that crystal clear gift of nature.
After enjoying our waterfall we came back to our tents and packed our bags to get back to our home. We had our lunch on the way at a cool Dhaba in Punjabi style and reached ToXSL Premises at 7:30 pm in the evening. We left to our respective places after bidding goodbye to each other.
