I frequently go for hikes in my Home town i.e in Shillong

To summarize my hike I would like to start by saying that one hikes to be exposed to the beauty of nature. The rough road and wet path is a tedious journey but the end result is worth the effort.

I ensured that throughout the hike I was well hydrated, wearing proper waterproof hiking shoes with a good grip and my apparel was quick-dry since  rain in Shillong is quite unpredictable

I was surprised to see everything nature has given us. Luscious green hills, quiet streams of water, wildlife and vegetation of whose existence I was unaware of, I've discovered in my frequent hikes.

Yes, sometimes the path seems never-ending but sometimes in life to achieve something, we require to strive for it. I am personally very content with myself for all the hikes I've undertaken.
