My Educational Tour Experience

An Educational Tour is a part of the academic experience in most Schools and Colleges. Such tours help students to understand first-hand about various subjects.
For instance, schools, Colleges may take students on Educational tours to zoos & parts to acquaint them with Flora and Fauna. It is one thing to see the picture of an Animal or a Plant in a book and quite another to see it face to face.
An Educational Tour is a Fun Filled experience as the tour may be too far away places. It is an opportunity for students to have a jolly time together. For some days they can forget about classes & exams. The travel by bus or train with students singing songs and enjoyment with teachers is an Unforgettable experience. Even onlookers feel an infectious enthusiasm when they see a bus load of students singing in a gaily abandon and waving.
The Proximity of friends and the absence of parents is an invitation to mirth & mischief. Some close friends may be forged during this period for we understand more about people when we stay with them for some days.
At last the long- awaited day came or my Halcyon day came for which I was waiting fidgety…When I along with my companions started off to Dehradun/Mussoorie on an Educational Tour by Varanasi-Dehradun Express on 8th evening. This is one of the most popular tourist destinations of north India.
There was a lot of excitement and sense of adventure in all of us. I do not know much about others but I was more excited because it was my first tour to any hill station. We were accompanied by Mr. Abdul, EduTrips tour manager & Dr Sajid Khan, the course co-ordinator.

Next morning we reached at Dehradun railway station at 6:35 am. We were all put up in a royal hotel. Our tour was of three night and four days.
After the breakfast all of us got ready to go to Forest Research Institute. This was a unique place and well known institute in the field of Forestry. Where in the museums old ways of preserving things were preserved. I was especially enthralled to see the way in which water was stored and some antique pieces of furniture that was hundreds of years old.

After the lunch we went to see Robber’s cave, Gucchupani is one of the names of Robber’s cave, situated at the distance of 8km from the city center. It is 600 meter long cave having Small River inside it. Then we went to see Sahastrdhara, which means the “thousand springs” is one of the best picnic spots. It is an eye pleasing waterfall of 9 meters that attracts the tourists place has also sulphur spring famous for its medicinal values. It is believed that it cares skin.

After the dinner we all of us gathered for the day review session. During this time all of us shared our experiences of the day. Along with this there were other activities conducted by EduTrips Team. The team was very courteous, they organized various educational activities.
On the second day we went to the Wild Life Institute of India, where we were enlighten about the rare and extinct animals that we were getting extinct year after year. We were also told that poaching is largely responsible for this condition.

After the lunch we had some cool time at the Water Park. After the Dinner, as the previous day we had activities and evaluation of the day.
On the third day we climbed the Mussoorie Hills. This is covered with elegant Scenic beauty. That night we stayed at a hotel on Mall Road. On the following day we went to see Kempty Fall, one of the natural water falls. That night too we had evaluation. I felt our stay at Mussoorie was too short as I didn’t want to leave such an awesome place.

On June 12th, night we started back our journey to Lucknow by Doon Express. The saddest part is coming back home to the same old routine. But I was also happy that during the course of this educational tour I learnt a lot like how to be co-operative and munificent when you are away from your home. This was the memorable and wonderful tour and moment of my life. All credit goes to our course coordinator Dr. Sajid Khan for booking our Trip with EduTrips.
