Many people think of trekking as long, arduous walks with no comfort. Trekking, however, is everything but that. We will also help you understand why hiking is all about the pros, even if you are simply an amateur, in a time when pros and disadvantages are weighed almost as routinely as you weigh yourself.
Even though this one sentence sums it all up wonderfully, I think adding a little more detail could be beneficial.
Of course, nature.
You are as near to nature as it gets when you are trekking. And even then, in its purest, most lovely form.
Maybe the distant mountains are turning golden as the sun rises.
Or the emerald-green hillocks covered in deep blue skies.
It might be a million stars sparkling in the darkness.
Or the little flowers that move in time with the breeze.
You could go on forever because nothing can be as lovely and intricately rich as nature herself when you walk alongside it.
Lessons in life
We have no reason to doubt the fantastic person you must be. However, hiking puts every virtue you have developed during your life to the test.
You transform into a better person as a result of it. It aids in giving you a completely fresh perspective on both yourself and other people. We could certainly list every virtue one gains through hiking, but we won’t. It’s because you’ll learn quickly and elegantly when you’re unguarded and vulnerable.
Ever seen those nature pictures on the various Social Media Platforms Those pictures are so magnificent, that you simply are pretty sure it isn’t a photograph but a digitally created image. Now, what if I tell you that you’re going to be able to click oodles of such photographs and they would be so perfect that you wouldn’t need to add any damn filter?
When on a trek every spot is best than one before, every angle is flawless, every scene is worth capturing. Although here’s some advice, the camera might capture the instant but it won’t help you live it. So except if you’re going just to click photographs, try seeing the planet through your eyes more often than through the lens.
Among the mountains, you can untangle yourself from the snarl of the internet. Laugh harder than that tiny yellow emoji on your keyboard. You will be disconnected from the world only to be connected with yourself.
New bonds with new people
What years of mundane life can’t do, a few days of adventure will. It’ll help you find kin and kith among souls you haven’t even met before. People from nooks and corners, people of myriad cultures and habits. Doesn’t matter if you’re with your squad or decide to join some random unknown group on a trek. By the top of your trip, you’d have forged bonds, bound by moments you all have lived together.
Challenge yourself and make it a goal to travel for one hike a month. Your soul will be grateful to you.
