Model Answer:
We went to visit Mount Everest a few years back as part of the study tour arranged by our college. It was the year 2011 and I was in the second year of my college at that time. Since it was in a different country (Nepal), we had to collect our visas to enter the country. From our country we flew to the Nepal National Airport and from there we took a tour bus to reach the camping area near the Himalayas. After few hours journey, we reached the camping area and we were very excited to be there. We were almost 30 members and four tour guides with us.

Personally, I was very much thrilled to visit the largest mountain peak and when I reached the camping area, I got awestricken. It is beyond explanation in words. The snow-covered mountain, balmy wind, the sound of nature, vast and wide area simply took my heart away. I stayed there for about a week and we did some mount hiking and fire-camping and all of those activities were really exciting and new for me. I enjoyed the nice vacation, natural scenery, companion of my classmates and friends. That was a relief from the busy city-life and being close to nature. I enjoyed this tour so much that the whole week seemed like passed away like a fleeting moment. I promised to myself that, I will come back to visit the out-of-the-world place someday.
