An outing is an ideal way to take a break from our daily routine & Monsoons are the best time to explore the real beauty of Nature. Hence Team SI had organised to visit Phanasrai, a scenic spot with waterfalls, which is 8 km away from Lonavala on 22nd June, 2013.
We started the journey at 0600 hrs from the SI office, all dressed in SI T- Shirts. On the way in the bus we played few games one of which was dumb shards (for songs).
The trek started from the main market in Lonavala. It was a 2 hrs trek with waterfalls on the way. Once we reached the peak, we were amazed with the beauty of nature. We had an assortment of adventure activities like waterfall rappelling, flying fox, etc. Initially everyone was scared to participate, but Dr. Yashodhara and Dr. Sudhir built up everyone’s confidence. Many of us had overcome our fears by doing rappelling. The flying fox was then an easier task.
The purpose of this adventure training was to overcome the fears, build communication skills and team work. It was well received and appreciated by all the team members.
The lunch was delicious meal prepared by the locals in an authentic way, which we all thoroughly
We played team building games like the amazing race and blind folded obstacle.
The winners for the amazing race were Team Two.
On the journey back all were very tired and exhausted from the adventurous activities however, Dr. Sudhir kept everyone entertaining by saying few shayaris.
Thus, ends our day, which was full of overcoming fears, new learning and great fun!!!!!!!
