30 Hikers take part at NHAs 27nd session

A total of 30 hikers took part in the Bank Windhoek sponsored Namibia Hikers Association’s (NHA) 72nd session at the Kaiser Wilhelm Mountain’s hiking trail in Windhoek.

 

The hikers were led towards the peak of the mountain and back to its base in a total of eight kilometres. The challenging trek comprised uneven terrain pooled with rocky patches through riverbeds and engorging cliffs, founder and president of NHA Eino Mbango said.

 

“We chose this specific mountain due to its rich Namibian history and the breath-taking view from its peak. The challenging trek comprised uneven terrain pooled with rocky patches through riverbeds and engorging cliffs."

At the peak, the group engaged in fun activities and motivational talks facilitated by Mbango.

“The top of the mountain rewards you with a 360 degree view of Windhoek. We understand that there are so many challenges in the city, but keep in mind that you can overcome them all. You are in control of your destiny,” he said.

He added that before descending downwards participants had to silently sit on their own as they reflected on their lives and few minutes later a relaxed atmosphere spread throughout the participants as they jogged and walked back to the base of the mountain filled with renewed energy.

Marta Neshilla and Nelson Mutongolume emerged as the winners when they crossed the finish line first.

Both winners received a floating trophy and two Gondwana Collection Namibia accommodation vouchers and vouchers include a two night stay for two at any Gondwana Lodge around the country including breakfast, lunch and dinner
