Being a lethargic person, I usually end up procrastinating and not taking part in outdoor activities. It was recently that I went on a trek with a few of my friends when they persuaded me to accompany them. As it was my first trek, I enjoyed it greatly and it helped me challenge my physical strength.
I live in Dehradun, which is a valley in Uttrakhand it is surrounded by hills, therefore, we do not have to travel long distances for activities like trekking and camping. Two weeks ago, I went hiking in Mussorie which is nearly one hour away from my city.
Trekking is a fun activity that mainly involves exploring nature on foot. Though it needed a fair amount of physical exertion, the view it witnessed after reaching our final destination was genuinely worth it. Going for hiking for the first time was not only a recreational outdoor activity, but I also got the taste of living in the wild though just for a few hours. As we just carried some of the essentials, for the first time I experienced cooking in the wild with limited resources which was extraordinary.
I’m glad that I went for trekking as it helped me overcome my fear of heights. I’d highly recommend this activity of everyone because though one gets exhausted, it’s refreshing and an easy escape from the mundane boredom of professional and personal lifestyle. The best part is that you develop a close relation with your friends while helping each other through difficult paths and finding ways as well.
