The snow-capped mountains and the lush green valleys of Manali had 35 inquisitive visitors, caravanning by the river from Class XI from 19th-24th March. The trip was dotted with extensive treks, comprising distances like 16 km and 46 km ( Jindalites broke their own record of last year, which was 44km). The young adventurers packed up and set off to hike the heights of the Manali mountains and as they trekked, ‘Maggi’, the queen of taste buds of the teenagers, did not fail to fuel their hungry tanks. The young explorers halted and were exalted at the scenic beauty of many hallmarks like Sajla Waterfalls, Solang Valley, Hadimba Temple, and the engineering marvel of India- Atal Tunnel. The Kodak moments captured the girls sculpting Snowman and daring Ziplining. The shopping at Mall Road and the rounds of bargaining left the girls laughing their hearts out astounded by their own shopping skills. Jindalites encountered the unfamiliar, learned the skills, adapted to a new terrain of life, and finally came back home loaded with snippets of memories and an enriched understanding of how people not only survive and also thrive with limited resources in the mountains.
