On 26th of April, NUST Adventure Club organized a hike to Panjpeer, approximately 1800 meters in height. The top of the Kahuta Hills was branded the name Panjpeer owing to the shrine present which was the gathering place of the five saints. This event offered the students to put on their hiking shoes and take a shot at a new destination. It also proved to be a quick relief for the students from their arduous examinations.
In spite of the heat and the blazing sun, students were excited for the trip and started gathering since 8am. The route took an approximate three and a half hours and already signs of the Panjpeer’s majestic beauty were on display. The enthusiasm was over flowing when we finally reached our stop. Refreshments were handed out to the participants and regulations and details were given to them. Even in such harsh condition the participants were flamboyant and passionate as ever. The pacer in the front, paved way for the participants and the lodger at end directed the hike from the back. Along with the organizers any issue the participants gad was skillfully tackled.
Once at the top the participants were mesmerized by the breathtaking view and picturesque backdrop. The cold water at the shrine and cool breeze were heavenly. Soon afterwards we descended our way back through an alternate route for more stunning and dazzling scenery. Returning from the hike the participants were treated to a delicious meal from a hotel. The return trip took another three and a half hours and the students reached NUST by eight o’clock.
It was truly a memorable experience and the event was carried out impeccably. The event is indebted to the hard work of NAC team, its office bearers and its faculty head. NUST Adventure Club guarantees to bring more of such successful events.
