Hyderabad, Dec.2 (Maxim News): The 8th avatar of Hyderabad Rockathon was organized at Fakruddin Gutta by the Society to Save Rocks and the Great Hyderabad Adventure Club (GHAC) on Sunday and a large number of citizens thronged Khajaguda hillock exploring Natures treasures and attempting challenges like Rapelling and Ziplining. Some used cycling in their heydays found that rock cycling needed a different skill set and decided to go on a rock walk. Young and old fell for the challenge of creating large columns of balancing rocks investing both patience and concentration. Many attempted Slack lining and were jubilant to reach the end of the rope.
Snake show was a crowd puller – the Friends of Snakes — removed common myths about snakes drinking milk and so on and got people to boldly touch the reptiles. The artiste in many was evident among those who sketched the aesthetic rocks that lend themselves to creativity – standing majestic and still for 2500 million years.
