Finally I managed to conquer the Giant Mountains! It is the highest mountain in this country with the height of 1602m. And I've already skied from the peak of the mountains to the bottom!
Well, it all happened beyond my own expectation. I went over for a ski trip at Spindleruv Mlyn, when somebody among us suggested to use a chairlift to go to a higher place for us to ski. We never thought that it was going to be that high. We were thinking that the chairlift that we took was only a few hundred meters high.
But it went on till we could feel the coldness of the atmosphere.. a place where the atmosphere was really quiet that we could barely hear any sound. And after about 15-minute ride, we were finally at the top of the mountains, where we could see the peaks of the other mountains surrounding it.
We had no choice but to ski from the top of the mountain to the bottom of it. There was no other way but to go down with our own ski.
I must say that the earlier and the last part was good and relatively easy. But the hardest part was at the middle. There were parts where the steepness was about 45 degree! And you should imagine how hard was it, when it came to corners, with forest on the right and left. I can't remember how many times I fell down.

There were some moments where I felt regret to go up, but there was no way to turn back. Carry on skiing, or you'll be freezing cold. But I must say it's probably the best way to learn how to ski, since you know that you need to learn by hook or by crook or else you'll be left alone at the top of the mountain.
After all, thank Allah, everyone managed to go down safely. It was indeed a memorable experience for me. I hope I'll have another chance to ski from the top of a mountain in future.

At least, the trip taught me to be rely on Allah and just go forward once we've made a decision.
