We travelled to an awesome place called Naggar which was located near Manali. This was my first 10 days CAS trip. The place where we stayed had many different stories of it’s history. The crystal clear snow adds beauty to Manali . However the thing which terrified me before the trip was the height at which we will be staying and the numbness because of the cold weather. Although after going there, chillness didn’t bother me that much, thus I could do activities with a lot of fun.
We did explore different ancient temples and paintings which made us know about the existence of creativity in those times. While this trip I could identify a strength of mine that I could easily trek for 2-3 hours without any hesitation which really helped me on this trip. However, the only weakness which I faced in the trip was laziness, at morning while waking up, restricted me to be on time for distinct activities. It is a great frailty on which I need to work upon in order to use time effectively. Waking up till late restricted me to be on time for distinct activities. It is a great frailty on which I need to work upon in order to use time effectively. Skiing was one of the greatest challenges for all of us. Skiing was something we don’t do customarily and personally I never did skiing so this was a new activity for me. However, the expertise provided by them made me and my friends do a very good job in skiing which made this trip more interesting and adventurous.
We were 30 people travelling together, we needed to make sure that we needed to work with a lot of coordination and without any conflicts among us. Keeping this in mind, we coordinated and adjusted with each other while travelling by bus and train, while choosing rooms for staying, trekking etc which really helped all of us to stay peacefully. Furthermore, the main focus for me of this trip was to enjoy the nature and treks. So it was compulsory to stay away from gadgets and, therefore, our school didn’t allow us to bring any type of gadgets especially, mobiles. So I didn’t bring a mobile phone and enjoyed the beauty of nature. Additionally, I also did not throw any type of garbage on the road in the whole trip which helped me to save the nature. I could also get an opportunity to know local people of Naggar and their lifestyles which helped me in developing my communication skills. Overall, this trip was a great success because due to this activity I could identify my numerous strengths and some weaknesses to work upon.
