Shreeniwas Sharma


 Rudra suggested that the D2HS team participate on a hiking trip to Phulchoki. Among the D2HS team members, Rudra, John, Vishnu, Shreeniwas and his wife Muna were able to take part on the trip on Aug 7, 2005, Sunday. At 7.30 AM, we started from Godavari, the bottom of Phulchoki and climbed to the summit, reaching the top at 11.15 AM (3 hours 45 minutes). We rested there for about 25 minutes and then we began to climb down. Starting the downhill trek at 11.40 AM, we reached the bottom at 3.15 PM (3 hours 35 minutes). Climbing up and climbing down made a nice trek of 28 kilometers (17.5 miles). It was raining most of the way and most of the participants were using umbrellas and some were inside rain coats. But all the participants were so excited, they were pushing themselves to achieve the pleasure and victory over the challenge set forth by nature. The blossom of wild flowers, the breath taking views from the height, the chill and fresh air of pure mountain and the united spirit of participants made a memorable Hike to Phulchoki.
