Now that everyone has backpacked for a hike in the nature, unexplored places in the city are being called for.
Exploring the wilderness in the nature has its own calming effect but explorers have started to set out their foot in the cities to experience the same.
It might seem unconventional, trekking in a city as people trekking in the nature always say, “We find peace in the wilderness” but on the contrary city trekkers say, “We find peace in exploring the unknown where once man has lived”.
City trekkers set out to find the facts and unknown secrets of places in cities which aren’t commonly known to the people.
All you need is a comfortable pair of hiking shoes, a GPS on your phone so that you don’t lose track of where you are heading to and a passion to discover the unknown.
Himachal Pradesh has always been a treasured spot for nature trekkers but India still holds gems in different parts of the states which are yet to be explored internally.
The perks of proceeding to a city trek is that you don’t have to wait for a long weekend and take some time to actually travel to the place you want to trek to, you just have to set out a foot in your city or any other city you wish to.
You can simply just do it any time.
The blessing of a traveller’s mind is that he/she can find beauty in any place, either a city or the mountains.
Go ahead and step down to find the places that hold significance for you in the city.
You might be thinking on how to go about a city trek?
Well, all you need is to find a place of a great deal of importance in the city. Maybe go ahead and wander off to the emerging cyber hubs, historical monuments, or places to eat. Every city holds places with millions of stories behind it.
The concept of city trekking is that you pin places which fall under the radius of the kilometres you want to trek in. For eg. If I want to trek for 7 kilometers I would pin places that lie in that area which may include monuments, parks, skyscrapers or even slums. The people who want to gain the knowledge of the metropolis seem to love this experience.
The best way to go on a city trek depends on what type of person you are, a solo traveller or a group person. And, the best time to trek is when the weather is pleasant.
Trekking is beneficial as you are working out your body while walking and at the same time, it gives you ample to time to think about life in all this chaos.
Nature treks are no doubt a great experience but the biggest merit of city treks is that you can do it anywhere at anytime, may it be at late night when the city sleeps, in the morning within the peace and serenity or in the day when the city seems most at it’s life.
We are driven by our mission to get more people outside. We believe that connecting with nature is essential to have a happy and healthy life.
