Did somebody say Waterfall?

Waterfall Trek


We had just come back from an exhausting trek with mud and leeches and we were so petrified that none of us wanted to go on the 2nd trek which included more leeches and more mud, the teachers felt bad so instead of going on another terrifying trek they took us on a beautiful 10 minutes trek to a waterfall.


We got on our speed boats and head to the waterfall. Once we reached we saw many little streams of water and the guide told us to keep walking up stream all the way to the waterfall.
Soha and I first tried to keep our shoes dry but after our 6th time falling into the stream we gave up and just had fun. In parts of the stream it was a bit slippery which ended up with us trying to help each other but actually just pulling the other person into the water as well.

Soha and I were nearly at the waterfall when it started to pour down with heavy showers of rain. Two minutes later we were already drenched so by the time we made it to the waterfall, we just jumped in with all our clothes on and splashed around with our classmates.


The instructor who was keeping an eye on us had a drone and used it to take stupendous views from above. Using the drone he took videos and photos of us from above.

The water was freezing but for some reason very soothing too, but the scary part was that there was a 1cm gap between standing on shallow sand and deep water holes.
It was still pouring down so we decided it was time to head back.
We had an option to go on the safe trek back through the man made path or back down the stream which we followed up.
Kiara and I chose the harder way since I was feeling adventurous today.
Although the way back was harder than I thought it was we made it to the boat laughing hysterically.
