The trip to Neemrana was scheduled for 4th February i.e. Thursday. As per schedule, I started the road trip journey to Neemrana fort palace from MG Road at around 7:45 in the morning. As it was my first trip for such an adventurous activity, I was a bit excited. Many thoughts were going through my mind about the things which I will witness there and the foremost, how I am going to perform on the zip wires.
We reached our destination at around 9:30 am. In our journey to Neemrana fort palace, I witness some never seen before sites and became more excited. When we reach the Neemrana fort, I saw the mountain beneath which looks like a demon and I felt like a so small in comparison to it. The reason behind might be that I had never had such a close view of any such mountains.
Upon reaching the Neemrana Palace, I was warmly greeted by the hotel staff. The first look to the palace was overwhelming and it was a pure fusion of traditional architecture with modern amenities. There I find Flying fox zip lining mentioned on the top of major activities conducted in the fort palace.
As I was a new to the place, It was a 10-mins walk to reach Flying Fox office from Fort entrance. In the way, I witness the amazing build up of the fort which was majorly constructed from stones giving it a traditional look. I saw a pool in the mid way as well which look like shining due to the reflection of the sun rays upon it.
As we reached the flying fox office, I was warmly greeted by all the flying fox staff and there were handshakes all around. From there, I saw the 5 zip line wires which is starting from the top of the mountain and gets ended on the top of Neemrana fort where flying fox office is located.
As I came from a long journey, a coffee was enough to make me awake for the most thrilling zip line tour. I had coffee at fort cafeteria which was marvelous in context of the ambience and build up.
Again we reach the flying fox office, where they equipped me with a waist harness according to my weight. They additionally provided me to wear the chest harness as well; I thought they might be thinking that I am a bit heavy which the case wasnt. It was actually due to the regulation they follow for the person who is getting the waist harness of size 2 needs to wear the chest harness as well. They gave me water as well which I will use while trekking to the top of the mountain.
We reach at the top of the mountain at around 11 am. During our trek we were accompanied by two senior instructors: Laxman & Kundan. There were two rest points where we got a chance keep our breaths.
Upon reaching the mountain top, Laxman who is one of the instructor gave me some instructions regarding the zip line and gave me a live demo on the training zip line as well. I also first started with zipping on the training wires.
Then they took me to the start of the first zip (Qila Slammer: 330m). I was a bit worried at the start but when actually did it; felt like flying in the sky and down there was houses which looks so small to me. The second zip (Where Eagles Dare: 400m) which is the longest became my favorites as it took some time to reach from the start to the end and in the meanwhile I was enjoying the sheer beauty of Neemrana from the top. I also ask one of the instructors to make a video of this particular zip line. I did all the remaining 3 zip line tours without any fear.
In the last zip line, we ended on the top of the Neemrana fort where our office is located. We all reached the office I remove all the safety equipments we were wearing.
As it was 1 pm on the clock, I were a bit hungry after all that hard work though you can say thrilling work. I did our lunch at the fort. At around 2 pm I was ready to leave from there.
