I had difficulty in trekking the steep path as my knees started hurting. Prashanth, our outdoor leader, helped me trek the steep trail. As each step became painful, Prashanth, who was calm and composed, kept on motivating me.
What would a trekker’s life be without these guides and outdoor leaders who make treks look simpler and beautiful? When I look back today, the leech bites, the steep trails or hurting knees, dehydration and tanned skin doesn’t matter.
The lies told during the treks are just to keep the trekker motivated and help them conquer the peak. They just help us transform ourselves. They help us forget what we do in a city for our living. They help us realise our potential. Through bruising/hurting ourselves, we realise that we have the power to heal ourselves. Tanned skin reminds us we still look beautiful.
