This was an incredible surprise! Soon after landing at the Kilimanjaro International Airport, Slope Manager Ravi Ranjan bumped into a group of Indiahikes trekkers who were traveling to Africa from India.
“All of them are Indiahikers who have trekked with us to Tarsar Marsar and Gaumukh Tapovan!” Ravi exclaimed, grinning ear to ear.
Meeting Indiahikes trekkers out of the blue is always a happy surprise. Indiahikes trekkers and team members—with their backpacks and High Altitude Trek Team t-shirts—are easy to recognise. Indiahikers usually stand out in the crowd at airports.
This group recognised Ravi in the Indiahikes t-shirt. And they called out to him, taking him utterly by surprise at the Kilimanjaro International Airport.
This happens a lot at our domestic airports, especially in Bengaluru and Delhi. But meeting trekkers at international airports just takes the thrill to a whole new level!
