Finally! The day arrived that our Prologic team was anticipating and planning for months.
We call it our “New Year Trip”- not “Corporate” or “Incentive” trip.
It is organized and financed by the organization in January every year. This long-awaited trip is not only meant for our recreation but also strengthens the team bonding. It’s a reward for all the hard work our whole team puts in throughout the year.
After cutting out the number of destinations (mainly due to COVID), our whole team finally agreed upon visiting the Amazing Shimla and Kandaghat in Himachal Pradesh.
It was a 3D/ 2N trip, where we were supposed to travel from Mohali to Shimla and then to Kandaghat on the very first day to have a stay of 2 nights and 2 days at Club Mahindra Resort (Kandaghat).
7.1.21 (6:00 am)
As planned all team members (except for a few who liked to have a little extra cushion of 10-15 min) arrived at the boarding point. After snacks, we started our most awaited journey. Within one hour of traveling, we were on the curvy roads surrounded by hills & mountains all around. Everyone seemed equally thrilled and excited at the same time.
“When you travel to mountains, the journey is as beautiful as the destination”.
This phrase fits perfectly, on our way to Shimla, we encountered enormous beautiful and breathtaking views. Views that could make you sweep off your feet and bring out the hidden wanderlust within you. With every other turn, you could expect something amazing waiting for you.
We took a halt at Solan (A hill station in Himachal Pradesh) for refreshments before reaching Shimla(Summer Capital of British India). We arrived Shimla by noon, and to our surprise, the weather was quite pleasant.
They say, Shimla never disappoints you with its scenic beauty, and with the kind of welcome we received, we were all truly amazed. Sunrays over the snowy mountains remind all those eye-catching wallpapers we have on our computers.
After exploring the local market of Shimla and enjoying lunch in a local restaurant, we left for the final attraction of our trip – Kandaghat.
One hour down the trip we reached our main destination “Club Mahindra ” resort, Kandaghat. The resort is considered among the top holiday destinations of India. Hidden by hills from all four sides this place is certainly a gem that could win anyone’s heart.
After checking-in to our respective rooms, we had some rest and got freshened up for the party later in the evening. That provided every team member to spend some quality time with other members and get to understand each other while enjoying food and drinks. At last, our first day ended on a happy note with lots of singing & dancing.
8.1.21 (9:00 am)
The second day started off with the resort tour, the property was quite huge and spread over acres of land. The resort was so fascinating and peaceful that we didn’t realize how time passed by and it’s already our lunchtime.
Whole team had a task to prepare lunch by ourselves, our menu was “Dal Makhani”, “Butter Paneer Masala”, and “Rice”. It was really great to see every member of the team contributed equally to their part and assist each other in preparing lunch. The end product of all the hard work was really too delicious.
Lunch was followed by a group of activities and games among the team members. Every member took active participation and enjoyed it to the fullest.
After having enough rest we all got ready for our evening snacks. That was among the most amazing times of our trip, open sky with a bonfire, chilled weather, and music- it was a perfect evening in the hills. Before heading towards the last dinner of our trip, we made sure to dance enough to settle all the food and drinks we consumed.
We got served with the best of international and local cuisines for our dinner along with some mouth-watering desserts. The whole staff and administration of Club Mahindra was truly helpful and knew the real meaning of serving a customer.
After a delicious dinner we all gathered in a room, as it was our last night together we wanted to make the most out of it. We all danced till we couldn’t feel our legs and played “UNO” till we fell asleep.
It provided us with an opportunity to get comfortable with each other and get to understand even more that is hard during normal working days.
9.1.21 (9:00 am)
At last, the day arrived when we had to bid goodbye to Club Mahindra, Kandaghat. We gathered at buffet area for breakfast on our respective table, little did we know what was coming our way.
The resort staff asked all of the guests to stand for a few mins, soon we all realized that it’s going to be a quick Zumba round. As it was the last activity we could do together, everyone grabbed the opportunity and performed it with great energy.
After having the musical workout and morning meal, it was time to take the sweet and unforgettable memories along. After all, every journey has to end to make a new beginning.
Goodbye Club Mahindra, Kandaghat! Our whole team is highly obliged to the staff of Club Mahindra resort for such a heartwarming service.
