During the Dasara break, seventy students from Grades XI and XII, accompanied by six teachers, embarked on a five-day excursion to Mukteshwar in Uttarakhand’s Nainital district. The journey commenced on October 16th, marked by welcoming showers after one and a half months of dry weather.
Upon their arrival in Mukteshwar, the students enjoyed the cold and foggy atmosphere. The first evening was spent acclimatizing and exploring the resort’s surroundings. The following day, the students were divided into groups and engaged in various exciting activities, including rock climbing, rappelling, zip-lining, valley crossing, and visiting the Mukteshwar temple. An evening campfire and music added to the fun.
On the next leg of the journey, the group proceeded to Nainital and later to a resort in Jim Corbett National Park, where they went on a tiger safari. They returned to Delhi by night.
In Delhi, the students had the opportunity to shop after a sightseeing tour that included Rashtrapati Bhavan, Parliament House, and India Gate. They visited Sarojini Nagar Market before heading to the airport for their flight back home.
This excursion undoubtedly created lasting memories and imparted valuable life lessons to the students as they explored the mountains and spent quality time with friends.
