W hen you buy a pair of trekking shoes you expect them to last for years. Good quality trekking shoes are expensive and need maintenance.
So, you break-in your new trekking shoes and then wear them to a much-awaited trek. You enjoy yourself to the fullest and come back home hardly recognizing your shoes from the previous week. There is mud on the midsole and dust on the tongue. Unsure how to clean, you leave them unattended.
T he beginning of March saw three more treks opening up – Kuari Pass, Har Ki Dun and Deoriatal-Chandrashila Trek. This added up to the list of other treks such as Kedarkantha, Dayara-Bugyal, Brahmatal, Sandakphu, Nag-Tibba and Prashar Lake. The day-time temperatures on most of the treks have risen, opening up clear blue skies and making way for spring flowers.
If you’re looking to go on a trek with your family, now is the best time to plan one.
Of late, I’ve noticed that many families have taken to trekking. In fact, just yesterday three different families spoke to me and planned out their treks. All three families had children between the ages of 8 and 12.
Frankly, I’m thrilled to see this new trend in trekking. How I wish my family had trekked together when I was a child!
I’m saying this because we find that families that trek together, live a much higher quality of life.
