I went to night trek at Kalavantin Durg with SSA. It was my first trek ever. I must agree, the experience was breathtaking and amazingly awesome with super awesome people! That darkness.. those difficult patches.. we couldn't have overcome it all without the support of trek leads. Right from the beginning to an end, I enjoyed each and every thrill. It wasn't just a trek for me but something more. Something.. which helped me to overcome the hidden fear. Thank you, SSA. Keep up the good work. Keep motivating!!
