On Saturday, March 31, 2018, Dean of students organized a hiking trip to Safin Mountain, near Erbil, for the staff and students of Ishik University. The journey began at 8:30 a.m. early in the morning, at 10:00 a.m. we reached Shaqlawa, and everything was going as planned before.
We met Mr. Fayeq Ali, Research Assistant in Business Department, our guidance, and he informed the team about the location and hiking tips. As we started to walk upward, we realized that Safin Mountain is full of natural beauties and gifts. We strolled enjoying whatever we saw on the way.
Our photographer, Mr. Hawraz, he took lots of beautiful photo of the mountains nature. We could see the beautiful Shaqlawa from very far. After the two-hour walk, we reached the top of the mountain, and we wanted to have something as we felt hungry.
Everyone had their lunch box we set a fire and started to preparer Tea. It was full of pleasure and knowledge. It provided us heavy physical as well as mental exercises. We can have tremendous benefits if we go hiking and observe these natural entities.
