This was an amazing experience! And overcoming my fear of heights was the best part of it! From rocky walks to slippery ones, everything was perfect! Connecting with nature and knowing the real importance of it, makes me realise how careful we have to be at our every step. And I am very thankful that we had perfect people /teachers to guide us and making us believe in ourselves. Also segregating the waste sought me to help my surroundings clean. - Puallu Sharma (Student, Grade 10)
