The other doctors are planning on doing a long trek after they get done working at Delek Hospital. To get ready, they have been hiking in Mcleod Ganj every morning before work. Sometimes they will walk for up to two hours! Crazy!
One Sunday, I decided to accompany them on one of these epic training hikes. It only took about 30 minutes to make me realize that I was out of my league. The only word I can come up with to describe what these girls do every morning is “scrambling”. We basically walked our way through a river bed and climbed up and down huge rocks and sometimes inched our way along steep riverbanks. It took us about three hours to reach our first destination of Bhagsu Falls, which is only a 30 minute walk from where we started! Umm, ladies? That’s why roads were invented!
I ended up bailing on the hike at Bhagsu Falls and heading back to Mcleod Ganj, but the girls went on going for another four hours! They eventually got caught in a storm and I spent the afternoon feeling very bad fom them as I was tucked under the covers in my guesthouse.
Maybe they have a little goat in them?
Although I think they are a wee bit crazy to do these big steep up and down climbs for fun, I am also very impressed. I ran in the mountains almost every day while in Mcleod Ganj, but I was just no match for their scramble. Love you girls! xx
