Eat. Sleep. Hike. Repeat.

That sounds like the perfect weekend getaway for a trekker. Trekking is the bliss that most adventure lover resorts to take a leave from the hustle bustle of the city and recuperate from the heavy week. In Bangalore trekkers works hard all through the week, and treks even harder over the weekend.

Where all

There are many places around Bangalore that’s perfect for a weekend trek trip. Mostly these treks are covered overnight. Places like Makalidurga, Savandurga, Anathargange, Kodachadri, Kundermukh, Kunti Betta and Kumara Parvatha are some of the popular trekking place in Bangalore. Wayand in Kerala is another favourite trekking spot near to Bangalore.

All these places varies in their trek levels, and distance from Bangalore. While some are only couple of hours away from Bangalore, others are an overnight journey to the base point. Some treks are easy and very beginner friendly, others require experience and guidance of professionals to explore. But they all have one thing in common, the promise of being an amazing trekking experience.

There are also added attractions like camping, bonfire, and adventure sports like paragliding, parasailing, rock climbing, river rafting and caving that comes with trekking experiences.

With whom

There are various organizations in Bangalore who organises these trekking experiences. Thrillophilia, as the name suggests love for thrills, is currently the biggest activity travel curator in India.  Founded in 2011 by husband wife duo - Abhishek Daga and Chitra Gurnani Daga has come a long way.  They are connected to around 40,000 travellers and with more than 1400 activities across India. They are a big player in organizing Bangalore trekking experiences. Others like Nature Admire, GiftXOXO, AdventureSome, 365hops and AmadNomad are only few travel curator in Bangalore, in the sea of many, who organizes these treks.

These travelling facilitator groups take care of everything. A trekker can book herself a trekking experience and can enjoy the trek without having to bother about planning the essentials of a trek. They provide the transport from the city to the trekking base and back, along with a trek leader, all the necessary equipment and food. As an added bonus, if you don’t want to trek alone and don’t have a group in town, you can just go along with others who have booked for the same trek.

Who should attend

Trekking is mostly a soft adventure sport and thus almost anyone in a moderate physical and health condition can go trekking. So even if you have not been trekking before, then there is always a first time for everything. And now is alway a good time to start.

If you are just in the city for travelling or work purposes and intending to spend a weeks here, then dedicating a weekend to try out one of the trekking spot will be completely worth it. Trekking has always proven to be one of the best ways to get a glimpse of  splendour and magnificence of the places.

And obviously regular trekkers.

About Trekking & Camping

Trekking, also known as hiking, is a great outdoor activity for both adventure junkies and nature lovers. This involves walks along either a planned or an unplanned trail across the hills. More of a hill climb and descend, trekking scales through various altitudes in case of intense trekking and lengths of landscapes when it comes to short treks. At any case, it requires stamina to trek through the trails that would involve hours of walking, be it an up hill climb or  normal landscape walk.

Camping however, are stay-outs that involve pitching tents, out in the wild or a stay in a caravan far from anything close to civilisation. Camping can either be a fun recreational thing to do, or a break in between rigours long hours of trekking and travelling. 

Trekking or Hiking

While 'hiking' is a preferred term in the west, particularly the USA and Canada, in the UK trekking is referred as 'Hill Walking'. In the parts of New Zealand, where trekking is taking a tad seriously with avid trekkers treading across mountains and landscapes, trekking is also termed as tramping.

There are various levels of trekking that are constantly approached by trek lovers. Either there are One Day Treks that are organised by trekking organisations or treks that can be ventured by groups of trekkers, then there are treks that go on for longer periods with involve Camping.

Camping turned out to be quite a popular recreational activity along the 20th Century. With activities like scouts and other travel related activities receiving huge recognition as recreation or a break from the routine, camping added to the fun. 

There are various types of camping that adventure junkies can keep experimenting while on the road. To name a few:

1. Adventure Camping

2. Dry Camping

3. Canoe Camping

4. Bicycle Camping

5. Social Camping

6. Winter Camping

7. Glamping 

While there are more on this list that can be fun to explore, trekking in particular involves camping in tents, if the trek is for more than a day.

Trekking & Camping

A lot of organisations offer trekking and camping packages. These activities involve trekking up a hill or even a mountain, on a trail that either leads to a destination or a summit. The trekkers then descend back to the base camp. 

The base camp houses the major part of the stay and provisions that the trekkers will need while trekking along the trails. While on a trek that takes more than a day, then the trekkers pitch a tent on stretches of land along the way. The trekkers camping out are sure to make a time of their lives out of it. With some bonfire with the group and some fun games make a great campsite. However, it is necessary that the natural habitat around these places are left undisturbed while camping.

Why Trekking & Camping?

If you are a nature lover, looking for a good getaway from civilisation, for some time out in the wild doing some adventure activity, then Trekking & Camping is your perfect pick.

It also has its own health benefits. Taking time away from a routine to connect with the outside world naturally heals and relaxes the mind taking it off from stress. Apart from this, trekking is a great way of pushing oneself towards a healthy way of life. As trekking requires a lot of stamina, avid trekkers keep a check on their physical health, giving them the benefits of great and healthy living. 

If these reasons aren't good enough, the world has a lot more to offer than just a well established life. Like enjoying a warm cuppa while on a winter trek or listening to a life changing experience of a fellow trekker while camping out or the stunning views a summit climb would delight you with. These are things that a city life and an office cubicle cannot replace and that's why Trekking & Camping!
