A Walk in The Jungle
We were all very excited about the Jungle-hike organised by the school last month. Dressed in rugged jeans, full sleeves shirts and hiking shoes, we kicked off the journey from Bhimbhetka near Bhopal. We started our trek over the splendidly green mountainous terrain. Our sports teacher, 2 local guides and 2 teachers led us through the thickets. Lots of scratches and jokes later, we reached the caves and marvelled at the 5000-year-old cave paintings. Pandavas are said to have rested here during their exile. Running around the caves, one could get a glimpse of how man lived in the jungles before civilisation came by and was it tough! The tree thickets looked dense and the non-stop chirping of the birds interspersed with sounds of jackals and hyenas made the journey very fascinating. The trek back through the jungle was just as much fun and the surprise was the sumptuous meal that awaited us at the base camp. We loved our experience and now crave for more.
