Hello fellow bloggers and readers 🙂 Today my friends and I hiked up a mountain called mount Korobaba which is the highest peak in Suva, Fiji. It was a great experience so I decided to share it with you all 🙂
So initially we invited 30 friends to join us on our adventurous hike but in the end there were only around 9 of us haha but it was a nicer to have a smaller group I suppose 🙂 We kept trying to find the entrance on where to start our hike but we were so clueless half the time! We eventually did find our way to the beginning of the trail and set off on our journey!
At first it was muddy……not just muddy guys, like SUPER MUDDY haha and that’s when we all realized…oh crap we’re in this for real now alright! We were already tired just walking up the first set of hilly lands. We took numerous breaks because we obviously lacked stamina and at some point we felt like giving up but to be honest I’m glad we didn’t because when we finally did reach the top. It felt as though we had achieved a breakthrough! The view was breathtaking and I could not even begin to comprehend how far and high we had come!
The hardest part of the hike was the journey to the top but when we made it, it felt as though all those sore muscles and scratched knees were worth it. And how precious is it that it can be a life lesson also, “all our stuggles will be worth it in the end”. It felt great to step out of my comfort zone and experience such a wonderful thing. Here is a picture of our view from the top of the mountain
Nature is just so amazing! my muscles are hurting at the moment and I’m going to fall fast asleep soon after this blog haha.
I hope all your days are going well. If you are ever visiting Fiji don’t forget to hike up this mountain
It will definitely be worth it! It took us around 2 hours to climb up and another 2 hours to get back down. If you are planning on going hiking, the number one essential would be footwear! Make sure it’s closed and comfortable! I cannot stress this enough!!! my feet have blisters and they hurt haha so please do wear appropriate footwear and also stock up on water! lol we ran out of water on the way down and everyone was just thirsty…until one of our friends had a bottle in her bag this whole time!!!! LIKE, WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL US EARLIER! haha
Well that’s all about my day,I’m going to head off to bed! Goodnight 🙂
