Have you ever asked yourself that “When was the last time you did something for the first time?”
My goal in life is to do whatever is humanely possible and within my power. Why live a monotonous life when there is so much to explore around the globe and so much to experience? Doctors are considered among those who lead a boring and a monotonous life according to people, but I neither deny it nor am I in favor of it. Its true that we have to study more than rest of them but it is upon you how you want to add the fun component into it. For those who are reading my blog for the first time I want to tell you that this blog LIFE OUTSIDE WHITE COAT is all about my fun component in life.
Recently I had planned an all-girls trip with my college buddies to our first trekking experience. My friend suggested that we must go to NAG TIBBA TREK since according to google baba this was the best trek for the beginners. We also planned to city tour Mussoorie and have fun there since all three of us wanted some change from our routine and books.
The day when my first trekking trip would start and this feeling kept me thrilled all along. Our instructor Steven was picked us up from Mussoorie. The trekking was suppose to start from Pantwari village. We were like a group of about 12 people who were travelling together in a tourist traveler van , on our way we saw the Kempty falls. Later in Pantwari village we were joined by rest of our group, now we were a total of 40 people. This was about to be so much fun.
We had to reach our base camp before the sunset since it becomes very difficult once the sun is set. Despite being the slowest among the group we managed to reach the base camp with some difficulties and sufficient time remaining for the sunset. The view from the top was just breath taking and frankly speaking I couldn’t believe my stamina that I did it and was lucky enough to see on of the most beautiful sunset between the mountains.
After the sun was set the bonfire was being prepared and since temperature was dropping continuously, the bonfire was kind of a blessing in that cold. This day was my day of firsts , my first trek, my first camping, my first bonfire, my first all-girls trip, meeting some new people first time and making new friends. The ambience was so pure and soothing with bonfire, soup, songs and friends. We all talked, laughed and just forgot all the worldly issues and were having fun in the moonlight. The day came to an end with the yummy dinner and we were excited for the next day as we have to trek to the highest point of 16000 ft from 10000ft where our camps were.
This day started early as we had to trek 6km more to reach the top. The route was not at all easy one, but wherever there is a little pain, the gain is higher. I was in the front this time with my new friends teasing each other and one thing was same like my other mountain trips that a dog followed us wherever we went, its name was Shera, hahaha LOL. Finally, snow, the child in each and everyone just came out and we had so much fun, but I even took a bad fall but again even falling was fun.
Now its was the time to descend down and slowly we reached our campsite. We were given lunch and my favorite Rajma chawal, it was yummy. The route to come down was different from the one we went up and its was more difficult, exciting and painful too. But finally we reached down with much difficulty, and lots of experience.
This was one of the most exciting adventure tried by me and I really am proud of myself that I tried. I came back with a bag full of memories of such a thrilling experience, fun with my friends and some new friends. I must say that is quite an achievement for me since I am not the one who makes friends easily.
So people must never stop trying things for the First Time.
