Mt. Damavand Climbing Experience for the First TimeMay 13, 2021
Towards dusk, Tian and his friends arrived at the top of Mount Damavand, which they had traced for the first time. The hobby of this group of young people is indeed quite high risk, they are a group of nature lovers who often venture into the mountains.
On this holiday, they want to conquer the cold peak of Damavand, which is still rare for people to climb here. Many rumors say about the mysteriousness of this mountain. And that they want to prove, how mysterious is this Damavand Mountain?
Just as the sun set, Tian and his friends reached the top of this mountain. While unwinding they lay down on the stretch of rocks at the top of the mountain. The charm of the twilight with the orange color is really beautiful to be enjoyed from the top here.
Tian just sat there holding his two feet, which indeed felt cold by the twilight air here. While some of his other friends were lying on their backs because they were tired, some were even taking pictures of the sunset with their cameras.
Tian looked preoccupied with his gaze to a distance where the sun began to sink into the night. He seemed to have drowned with the setting sun at that evening. When Tian suddenly felt thirsty and then got up from his seat to take his drinking bottle that was tied to his backpack.
As Tian approached his backpack that was leaning against a large rock, he saw a glimpse of a shadow walking towards him. Tian also looked at the shadow which was getting closer to him. The shadow walked unsteadily like an exhausted person. The closer it became, the clearer it became if the shadow was a girl in a white shawl.
Tian suddenly flinched when his eyes were clear on the girl who seemed to be restless.
The girl was really beautiful and elegant like a princess from heaven. Tian wondered why this beautiful girl was at the top of the mountain alone.
Not having had time to finish his curiosity, Tian was surprised by the girl’s voice who suddenly said, “If you allow me to spend the night with you here, because I got lost looking for traces of my other friends”, the girl said.
Tian just nodded his head in agreement, he could not say anything because his tongue felt cold and stiff. Finally, Tian and his friends set up a tent that had been prepared. Meanwhile the girl was just sitting bowed on a rock not far from them.
Tian and his friends only focus on their respective work regardless of the beautiful girl. Without them knowing it, the girl had moved seats floating in the air without changing her sitting position.
But Tian saw the incident clearly in the corner of his eye which was still curious about the girl’s whereabouts, because Tian was the first to see her.
Tian tried to be calm with his vision, he did not want to make a scene with his friends because he was afraid that they would act that he did not expect.
Until everything is finished and the tent is ready to be a place to spend the night at the top of Mount Damavand which is getting more and more piercing with the cold air.
Meanwhile Tian’s friends were busy chatting by playing the guitar and singing while enjoying the snacks they brought as supplies. Tian approached the girl and gave her a drink bottle.
“Drink up!” Tian said simply said.
“Thank you.” replied the girl.
From there, a conversation started which started to warm up to the point that Tian forgot about the strange incident he had seen earlier.
Tian finally found out that the girl was called Pari. And just when the girl mentioned her name the full moon appeared in the night sky which was indeed very bright that night.
Tian only occasionally looked at the full moon which seemed to appear on purpose to illuminate the beauty of the Moon that was sitting in front of him.
Tian really admired the girl’s beauty. How graceful that every word that came out of the mouth of Pari was like a song she was singing.
Until he didn’t feel Tian started to yawn with sleepiness, but he still listened to the Pari talk about herself.
The night was getting late and cold, Tian’s friends had already entered the tents all of them, and slept soundly.
While Tian was still sitting cross-legged in front of the Moon, when suddenly Pari got up and approached him, giving him a long white cloth decorated with a jasmine flower.
“Put it on! You seem cold.” Moon said to Tian.
“Good.” Tian replied while wrapping the cloth around his neck.
Suddenly her body felt warm and her eyes felt like she could no longer hold back to want to sleep. Tian also collapsed on the rock where he sat, he fell asleep there without remembering anything else.
The night is getting darker at the top of Mount Damavand, from a distance the sounds of the night are getting increasingly tense. The increasingly cold air had made the group of young people slumbered even more.
Without realizing it, that night when they were asleep embracing their bodies, Pari flew away and then disappeared into the darkness of the night.
The next morning, they wake up with a shocking incident. It turned out that Tian fell asleep on the edge of a steep rock that almost fell into a cliff.
Tian’s neck, which was circled by a white cloth, seemed like it was being tied so that it didn’t fall into the abyss. Tian slowly awakened by his friends.
After Tian was completely conscious and woke up from his sleep, his friends asked him why if Tian could sleep there.
Tian told all about last night. That’s where they realized that Pari was not there. I don’t know where they went, they don’t know.
Hearing Tian’s story, they finally rushed back down the mountain and went home. Arriving at the foot of Mount Damavand, they also told what happened last night to the Asgar who was in charge of guarding the entrance to the Mount Damavand climbing area.
And they finally know very clearly about the mysteriousness of Mount Damavand. That the existence of a beautiful girl who appeared to every climber who could see her, would definitely have an incident like what happened to Tian.
Tian was one of the lucky people because of his kindness who did not bother Pari when she was with him last night. If only a man was teasing her, that man would fall into the abyss.
Tian and his friends feel grateful for their safety which is still being guarded by the most loving God. But they have never been deterred by this incident, because the mountain for them is a place to play and learn about life.
Tian also keeps neat memories from Mount Damavand, namely the white cloth given by the Moon.
He kept it in a glassed wooden box in his room, and it would always remind him to stay alert and be careful when climbing. And most importantly he will always remember to always respect a woman.
Tian and his friends continue to adventure from mountain to mountain while maintaining sustainability.
They advised them to be kind and wise when climbing any mountain.
Stay aware and always remember when you reach the top successfully is a gift from God Almighty.
