The following pictures were clicked while hiking through the forest. I, along with couple of friends, ascended a hill which is off mark for most humans except for few locals who venture in these forest areas to cut trees, for use in the fire stoves.
We were making a very slow progress, amidst dry stems, thorns and cactus which kind of became difficult to navigate. We barely covered 30 per cent of our way in the stipulated time frame. It was getting late & hot as well with the Sun shining in the sky. Moreover, the thorns and dry stems were badly bruising our skin!
Decision was made and we decided to make an exit from that point itself. We descended from a very steep hill. There was no trail and to make the matters tough, the surface was “loaded” with gravel, giving us tough time to plant our feet. After a careful descend, we ended up in a jungle on a flat land.
While navigating through the forest, I turned around to have a last look at the point from where we made our exit on hill. I was rewarded with the following view!
