Yes, I have been on a holiday trip to one of my favourite places, which is none other than Tekanpur. This place is so beautiful with its various tourist hotspots. This place resides in the inner core of my heart. It is located in the heart of awesome-looking natural beauty. It is rich in enchanting landscapes along with vibrant tourist hotspots. These hotspots have become quite successful in attracting everyone's attention. This place is surrounded by lush greenery. This particular greenery has adorned the beauty of the place from every corner.

The very special part of this place can be observed in the morning. As the sun rises in the morning, Tekanpur awakens, along with different beautiful colours that paint the sky in hues of pink as well as golden. The fragrance of blooming flowers is awesome and always welcomes visitors with open arms. The beautiful rivers as well as tranquil lakes have added extra beauty to the surroundings of this place. This really makes one stop and reflects on the natural wonders.

Talking about our visit to this place, we felt extremely delighted to be there. We felt our presence as if we were in heaven. We visited various places there on foot and thoroughly enjoyed and learned about different things. When we reached Sauni Pani, the first hotspot, we found tents of various tourists. We spent our two hours there talking to the tourists. We found them in great joy, like ourselves. This place is a resting place for all the visitors. There are all kinds of facilities, as there are several restaurants, grocery stores, and lodges. There is an open ground for a night stay for all the visitors. The best part about this hotspot is that it allows people from different countries to live together in harmony. We felt great when we found tourists from different countries enjoying themselves in one place. The tourists over there seemed much happier than the native people of the place. The very interesting point is the immense enjoyment of the place.

The next hotspot is located about an hour away. The place is quite favourable for all the visitors. We were stunned to see a huge waterfall in which water was falling continuously. Most of the tourists were seen taking pictures there. This place is also known for its fish fries. We got delicious fish fries at a very cheap rate. We heard music playing continuously. The sight was similar to a fair held in an urban area. Most of the tourists were also dancing, expressing their immense happiness. The place also fascinated us. We also danced with the tourists there.

It was a lot of fun for all of us to be there. We enjoyed our trip to Tekanpur very much.

Writing I

Imagine that you are going on a three-day trek during your vacation. What will you do on different days? Write short paragraphs about your plans.


In my three-day trek during my vacation, I will do the following activities on different days:.

On the first day, I will get up early in the morning and freshen myself. After that, I will engage myself in physical activity for an hour. I will energise myself with a hearty breakfast. I will carry my mini-handbag along with a plastic cane and set off on the trek. I'll hike various scenic trails and snap awesome photos of natural wonders. During the trek, I'll think a lot about my health and keep myself hydrated. I will pack my lunch and take short breaks wherever needed. In the evening, I'll return to my campsite. I'll set up my tent and enjoy a campfire dinner with other fellow trekkers. I'll spend some time gazing at the stars before sleeping.

On the second day, I will follow the same morning routine as the previous day. Next, in my trek, I will move to the rainforest to explore local wildlife and plants. I will have lunch amidst nature. As I reach a breathtaking viewpoint of a huge waterfall, I'll take a complete rest while viewing the natural wonder. I will enjoy the scenery along with the picture-taking activities. I will move down to the river and enjoy swimming and refreshing myself. I will start setting up my tent just next to the river bank. Again, I'll enjoy my dinner with fellow trekkers in front of the fire. I will talk and share my experiences with them. I will go to sleep early to get up early.

On the third day, I will rise early. I'll follow my morning routine as quickly as possible. After having breakfast and packing up, I'll start trekking towards the endpoint. I will pass through forests and small villages. I'll interact with local people and also learn about their culture. As I reach my final destination, I'll celebrate this achievement and have a picnic to celebrate the moment. Eventually, I'll return to the base camp. I will bid farewell to the group. I will depart with unforgettable memories of the incredible trek.
