Safety is the key for any expedition. Adventure can quickly turn into a misadventure if you are not careful enough. The wilderness is completely unforgiving and behind its outpouring beauty and calm is a powerful beast like strength. This is what adventure is all about, going into the unknown and coming to terms with you real being.
Trekking is one of my favourite adventure activities. As an amateur I can choose amongst a wide range of difficulty levels for this activity. Trekking allows you to enjoy the beauty of isolation and seclusion. If you like to trek with your friends, then it is among the best bonding moments you will ever have in your life.
As an adventure lover I have a long experience of going on distant treks. I have trekked at locations all around the country and have learned a few essentials in the process which I would like to share with all of you. Since safety is the main concern on a trekking adventure, the items which are related to trekking must be the first things that you put in your bagpack.
Getting your bagpack ready can be challenging at times because you have to find a balance between keeping all essential things and keeping the weight of the bagpack low. If you forget something, you will be in trouble in the middle of nowhereland and if you have a heavy bag it will be a pain throughout the journey.
The fire-starter and match box is one important thing you can never ever forget. The rain-kit is also equally important. There can be nothing more fearful than a dark rainy night in the wilderness. Aren’t they great makings for a horror movie? The headlamp is the next important thing. Also, try to keep food that fills you up but is not heavy. Don’t stuff your bag with packs of chips. Smart trekking food is available in the markets. Finally, keep a small toolkit and a first-aid box always close to you.
Keeping in mind all these essential things will help you have an exciting trekking adventure, which will make it memorable.
