Today we went to the Knuckles to do some hiking activity. Knuckles mountains include 6112 feet above the Dumbara Valley, also own the various ecology. We saw the mimosa, and other special kinds of plants by mountain guides’ leading (With military backgrounds, cool!) , viewed the beautiful field scenery and sweet-sounding of cow mooing, experienced the hard part of a day- hiking in the jungle, we believed that we’ve got more motivation to challenge new stuffs for everyday in m-term! Someone fell in the jungle, and some are not used to this kind of activity, but finally we all survived! At the end one of the guide taught us a song and the funny dance steps. That was a cute one, everybody enjoyed it. After that we drank the coconut juice at a restaurant, and went back to the bus.
This was the first time that I had hiking in the jungle, it was not easy for me, especially under the strong sunlight. To be honest, I really want to give up in the middle of hiking. However, when I saw the old man, who wear sandals and have kyphosis, walking very fast and lead the road; I think that I should not give up. He really encouraged me, and let me know that I should tried my best to overcome the difficulties. I did make it and learn a lot. (Nissu Wang & Manli Gao)
