BANGALORE : Shweta Pandit has learnt the art of taking the right breaks between her projects. The actress who loves trekking has just been to Goechala for an eight-day trek. She went to the Eastern Himalayas from the Sikkim end, where she walked 100 kilometers in a chilling weather than dipped below 12 degrees."I find trekking is the best way to disconnect from everything and be close to nature. I have been to most of the treks in Karnataka, but this is the first time I took up a bigger challenge and it was amazing," says Pandit.
Shweta's adventure started the moment she started her road trip to Sikkim where the team witnessed two landslides. However, that did not stop anyone and everyone including her had the best time of their life, she admits. "I was extremely thrilled to enjoy the beauty of the mountains. I felt like I was on top of the world. I could see the entire Kanchenjunga range. Seven of us went from here and the rest of my company comprised mostly non-industry people including entrepreneurs and doctors. We later joined a group consisting of 27 enthusiastic trekkers, which was organised by India Hike. The best part about this trek was that we were a part of the green trail project which helps keep the mountains clean. Everyone had to work while trekking and pick up any plastic waste that we found through our journey," she says.
The actress who has great memories of the experience says that someday she would want to bring it to the silver screen. "The idea has been triggered in me but I have think how I will go about it. Trust me, nature will be the biggest character in my film and those who watch it will surrender to this beauty. Trekking gives you a rush, like the way you react when you get a good film in hand," she says.
The actress is back now, refreshed from her trip and looking forward to the release of her film Eradondla Mooru. The film directed by Kumar Datt, stars Shweta and Chandan in the lead roles.
