Lessons for trekkers…

Mukesh Bhavsar at Harishchandragad

Recently I have been to Rajmachi and it was wonderful trip. It’s really fun to walk on a hilly road with some crazy friends. It was raining heavily out there and it feels great to walk on the road less traveled with number of waterfalls and deep fog all around. Sharing some of the important things I learnt after some of my treks-

  1. Don’t try to act smart, be smart!

Read about the place you are going to visit. Know about special attractions and threats too! Always listen to what an experienced trekker says. If some things are to be done with proper equipments, don’t even try to do those without equipments. There should be someone who is leading your group and for the whole group his word should be the last one.

  1. ‘Must carry’ things-

You must carry a good quality torch, water bottle and first aid kit with you. You must wear shoes otherwise wild snakes, insects may kiss you. Don’t forget to take mosquito net if you are going to do overnight trek.

  1. Nature is great, don’t try to challenge!

Keep in mind one thing you are nothing in front of nature. It’s huge, really huge, so take calculated risks and enjoy roaming around nature.

  1. Be curious-

Know more about the place. You will really feel nice when you know history and geography of that particular place. Don’t make noise, and spoil silence with drinks. Observe chirping of birds, see their wonderful colours, listen to what nature says, that sound of waterfall and leaf of trees…

  1. Don’t spoil…

Yes! You got it right. Don’t try to become famous by writing your name on stones of the structure. Those are built, won by our brave people, not your father! Keep plastic bags with you and throw them in dustbins after coming back to city.

So plan your trek, go happy! And keep posting your experiences…
