Trekking has been the purpose of human life since the pre-historic times. Humans were meant to voyage across strange lands to find new homes and continue to find newer ones still. However, in our static and stagnant lives, we rarely have the time to go discover new paths and territories. But it becomes important for us to not live our lives trapped within any boundaries and instead determine our own paths and uncover what we haven`t seen.
Trekking is much more than simply taking a walk in strange areas. It has to do more with the very act of discovery than with the physical activity of walking. It doesn`t necessarily relate to mountaineering though it is a part of the adventure. But it involves covering as much distance as you can amongst the nature, relishing the novel introductions to your life!
Trekking also connects you to the very person you are. It uncovers the layers of superficiality that we all wear as we continue to uncover new terrains. It is an enriching activity which connects us to the world we live in as much it does to ourselves.
One by-product of Trekking is that it makes us into healthier people. Though the motivation behind this activity is not to become fitter, but it surely does do just that! People who have taken out the time to treat themselves to this experience have returned with a renewed vigour for life, a refreshed perception and amazing memories captured on their cameras!
The factors which must not be ignored are regarding the equipment which must be carried along. A simple backpack containing appropriate clothing, food suitable for your conditions, a first aid kit, a sleeping system should suffice. Varying upon the skill of the trekker, one must also carry certain survival gears to be on the safer side.
Trekking offers one of the best memories we can create for ourselves. It allows us to unearth unseen sights and revel in the beauty of the magnificence we would have missed out on if we never took the risk. Because life is nothing if not lived to the fullest!
