Working day in and day out can suck the energy out of you and leave you feeling listless and depressed. I try to get out as much as I can on a trekking or fishing trip, as this gives me time to enjoy nature and is also an inexpensive way to relax and get rejuvenated. Walking and trekking trips around the world are quite popular now, as people have started to look at healthy, safe and nurturing holidays that give them a refreshing break from their stressful life.
Trekking spots across the world
You can find several popular and well established trekking spots scattered all over the world from the Inca Trail in the west and Everest base Camp to the Kilimanjaro Mountains in Tanzania. All these spots can be enjoyed immensely. You get breathtaking scenery, awesome landmarks and nature in its pure form. Though numerous people have walked these trails over the years these trails still preserve their innate essence that makes them alluring and appealing to trekkers all around the world. Additional benefits you get include, exposure to new cultures, being at the core of wilderness, finding new experiences and making new acquaintances.
Picking out your spot
With so many national and international spots available, choosing your destination can become hard. I usually take up the local trekking routes on weekends and keep the international trails for longer vacations. There are several travel companies that provide trekking packages to all important spots in the world including India, America, and Africa, Europe and the Middle and Far East countries. Exploring on foot can be a great experience that you should not miss out on whether the places have already been explored by you or are entirely new to you.
You need not be a seasoned hiker like me to enjoy a trekking holiday. Even those who like to take a stroll while they take in the scenery can enjoy the walking or trekking holidays. While there are organized tours, you can also go with your friends and family to spots you choose on your own. Whichever way you do it, the basic essentials you need are an active spirit, a quest for exploration and a sturdy pair of boots. You should know the essential gear you need to take and more importantly when to use them. This comes with experience and good reasoning skills. By knowing about the region you’re trekking in you can have a better trekking experience.
While trekking has been often associated with individual traveler or lone adults, even families can enjoy it. There are many family trekking tours available now which cater to young and old people effectively. Kids get to see entirely new and refreshing scenery far removed from their video games and television shows. The river rafting, fishing, camel or elephant rides, beach hikes and mountain hikes offer a great and interesting diversion that both kids and adults love. The historical ruins, old temples or castles, local celebrations are something they have not experienced before making them more receptive and happy at the exposure.
