The trip to Naggar was one of the most cherished trips I have had with my friends. The journey to Naggar was long but enjoyable. I made so many new friendships on that trip and learned many new things about my peers. I am not the one for adventurous trips that involve trekking and exploring, but I thought it would be a new fun experience so joined it with my friends. We stayed at the Naggar castle which was home to the King and Queen but is now furnished into a hotel. We learned a lot about the history of Naggar which was interesting to know.We went for morning treks. For me, it was very exhaustive but serene. The surroundings were very beautiful.

Through this the learning outcomes that I achieved are:

LO 1 Identify own strengths and develop areas for growth: I realized that I developed a new interest towards hiking and realized that it wasn’t as exhausting as it looked but instead was very calming and relaxing. I realized that I did have enough capacity and stamina in me to complete a trek however the one thing I needed to improve on was the speed at which I hiked. 

LO 2 Demonstrate that challenges have been undertaken, developing new skills: One day we went for snow adventures where we did skiing. It was a new experience for me and I had a lot of fun doing it.I had never done yoga before but we had 2 yoga sessions during the trip. All in all the trip was very informative and opened me to take up new challenges and gain new experiences.
LO 5 Demonstrate the skills and recognize the benefits of working collaboratively: There times when while trekking some of us got left behind and needed more help and motivation and in such times everyone else stopped and helped that person and tried to get them to reach the end of the trail. This trip made me understand how supportive and understanding my batch mates are. 

LO 6 Demonstrate engagement with issues of global significance: We learnt a lot about how people living in hill stations got their income and how differently the houses were built there to avoid dangers for natural calamities. We also learned about how the global warming affects the temperature and climate there.
