Khanpur Dam is a dam located on the Haro River near Potowar Plateau and the village of Khanpur, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, Pakistan, about 25 miles from Islamabad, Pakistan.And 15 KM form Haripur. It has heartbreaking scenarios. It was the trip on which one wish (Cliff Diving) from Wish Basket came true.
We left office at 8 A.M. First we had breakfast at Melody Food Street, Islamabad. It included Halwa Puri and Lassi. Then we started our journey towards dam. The most best part of trips is the bus part-travelling together to the destination. We were singing, dancing, cheering, laughing, sharing happiness and making memories.
We reached at dam around 12 P.M. I am totally unable to explain the beauty of the clean blue water surrounded by green mountains. The camera couldn’t capture what eyes were watching. We enjoyed boating and jet skis and this was another wonderful experience.
And there come the most thrilling moment-cliff diving. I always scared of water since my childhood but first time in my life I actually jumped into the water. I have no idea from where I gathered all that courage and just jumped over the cliff and went into the water. For the second when I hit the water, I thought my life is finished now, I am drowned , I am going with the waves and that I am not coming back, no one would find me. These were all that one second thoughts and my whole life just flashed in front of my eyes. I took more than 5 minutes to stable myself. But once I got stable , I realized how beautiful it was, how beautiful the view around me, how beautiful it is to experience the fears of your life and then they remains no more.
Cliff diving, the adventure we all enjoyed a lot. After that, we had lunch and tea. Then we started our journey back to home. Again the bus part-all that singing, dancing, playing games gave this trip the happy ending.
Below, I am sharing few clicks from this trip (but this mobile camera’s clicks can not show what eyes watched).
