Huma Qureshi Went To Borneo All Alone When Her Friend Dropped Out
Speaking to Kamiya, Huma said, “My first solo trip was to Borneo. I was supposed to go with a friend, and we were supposed to climb a mountain. So, I was very excited about it. There is a mountain called Kota Kinabalu. So, we made a plan, and for some personal reasons, she had to drop out. So, I went alone.”
Huma Calls Her First Solo Trip The Craziest Experience Of Her Life
Huma told Curly Tales how she scaled a mountain at 4 AM to catch the sunlight. The actress said, “I remember it was the most crazy experience of my life. We obviously did a climb, and then there is a shelter, you spend the night, you wake up at 4 ‘ o’clock, you put these helmets with lights on and then you climb again. So, at some point in the morning at 4, there is less oxygen, so I am panting and climbing, and I am just like, what if I die, there is nobody who knows me over here.”

“At some point, I sat down, and the plan was that by 6:30 we had to reach the top. As that’s when the sunlight hits. And I can see it but I am just so tired. So, I sit down and open a protein bar and there is a guy next to me. So I was like bhai tu khayega? And he is also panting. We are like we will finish this. I have no idea who this person was. But we fist-bumped each other and finished a climb.”, added Huma.
Huma Thinks Her First Solo Trip ‘Cured’ Her
