Trekking Trails –  The Journey at the top of the World

Climbing up the mountains with all efforts, fun and sunshine payback in the end when you realize that the pure joy lies in the mountains and on its natural untrodden trails. The enchanting view from the top of the world brings the ultimate happiness and makes you forget the existence of sadness, difficulties, pain, and problems on this planet. Probably, this kind of feeling and the place was termed as ‘Heaven’ by our ancestors. And yes, this is what I say when people blankly ask me, what’s so awesome about toiling up the mountains!?!? Fortunately, I am born in a country blessed with few of the most beautiful mountain ranges of Himalayas, Sahayadris, Aravali and the Western Ghats. The purpose of scripting my trekking experiences and the trek guide is motivating the people, especially the first-timers, to take up an adventure on their own.
