After a fulfilling trek, we retired for the day early. Dinner was rice, dal and chicken (Khasi preparation).
Nov 10 CHR - krem mawmluh Mawlynnong
Again, we got up early and i was excited and was looking to do some caving at mawmluh. My better half woke up with a sore body and announced she would be staying back at the hotel. After a quick breakfast, we set out on a half an hour drive towards mawmluh. My guide for the day was peter a resident of laitkynsew who had prior experience in mountaineering and caving. We reached what looked like a cement factory. We changed in to caving suits, boots, helmet with led lamp attached, ropes and a few other equipment which peter had carried.
Then we started the walk towards a hill. The path turns to a steeper track from where we started climbing the hill using a rocky path. Each and every step was to be taken carefully, inspecting the rocks before putting the weight of the body in it. The climb was very stressful for me and finally we ascended to the top of the hill. Then we needed to walk near a cliff for some distance and on reaching a point Peter pointed to the area where the opening of the cave was. It was in the lower point of the hill.
This was my first serious caving, so i had no idea what to expect. Though navigating around arawah cave gave me some perspective, this was all together a different experience. Peter was extremely proficient and had immense knowledge of the fossils, limestone formations and kept narrating various theories on how these were formed. A good four hours after squeezing through rocks and crawling, we finally reached the end of the cavern. At this stage, my body could not take a step more. Previous days trek culminated with a treacherous caving had taken its toll on the body. It was now i realised, how are bodies are abused with the city life. Just then our driver had the presence of mind to go to CHR while i was caving and pick my wife and wait for us near the cement factory.
