People who frequently indulge in trekking, know that this is not just an adventure sport. It takes you to the deepest secrets of the natural environment of a region. When you enter in a natural habitat, the place presents all of its offerings to the person and one can feel those offerings through all of his six senses.
Yes, six senses! The aroma of the green plants and trees melts with the oxygen and become a delight for your nose. The ears hear the sound of the inner soul among the singing birds and waving breeze. Eyes get the benefit of seeing all the vivid colors of mother nature, while the skin revives itself with the touch of soft petals of flowers.
On the other hand, the trekkers can taste the juicy fruits offered by the trees. But the most amazing is the unexplainable peace that the sixth sense gets during the whole experience. The peace which only trekkers can understand.
