Rock of Ages-an evening expedition at University of Hyderabad

Summer has came, its too hot and everybody eagerly wait shower(of blessing!), unexpectedly there was a rain here in Hyderabad, before raining we all(Utaia, Thanpuia, Hruaia, Robert)were in my room planning to have an evening trekking in our University campus Rock. Utaia bought a new hi-tech Camera in yesterday and wanna test how good it is, but we were in off-mood as shower still pouring. At last i went up to terrace to checkout weather condition, it seems raining almost stop and went down to my room. Though it was still drizzling our keenest could not stop us and start riding our bi-cycle. In the mid-way shower start again and stop at SN School Junction,looking around sculptures and their other products. Robert left us and he went back.Thank God! Sun appear again, then we went straight to Buffalo Lake, we reached near the lake and parked our cycle.
After this we go by foot..

To reach our destination at least we have to go around Buffalo Lake..Whatever there may be in the way, we don't know but we will move ahead...

It was not an easy trip, there is a thick forest to pass through..

Here is my colleagues Thanpuia and Mahruaia take a rest under the old-aged Tamarind trees. The Tamarind trees are growing very big, standing still more than a century (it seems!)

Way become unsafe!
Alas!we saw my most-hated creature in the we are feeling scare of it we want to leave the spot soon but Utaia (the great)does not have such. Instead showed his kindness, play with this snake after-sometime and he click this picture.

wow! keep it away!

Look out! snares a head, we have to be careful otherwise we might be in trap!

Trough many hard and danger! We safely reach our destination Rock ....but we still have to climb up..

and the mile before we take rest:)

Here is the top,the destination had been reached now!

Among us, only Utaia can reached the Highest Rock...what would be the taste of Oxygen in such high place? I suppose less air polution:-)

See the beautiful views from top of the Rock

towards campus

After Spending enough time we climb down from the top of the rock.
(puia be careful!)

Hyderabad is very rich in a variety of Rock Structures

Professional watch!!!
