Spring is a whisk away and it’s time to shed those extra few pounds that you might have gained over the past few weeks when you were busy snuggling in your blanket to fight the cold. Agreed hitting the treadmill is always a good method of getting back into shape, but let’s face it – there’s no fun in running on a stationery object with headphones on and blankly staring into the television playing music videos on mute. There is a better way to do it and we think hiking is the best way to do it.
Fresh air, beautiful scenery, clear water and wilderness. These are some of the few things that you are guaranteed to get. Every trip is unique in itself. It’s not just the travel, if you really look at it. Every adventure trip is an experience in itself. Getting lost, bumping into some unknown village and having a cup of tea with the locals and getting directions back to your tent, these are extremely common stories which we get to hear from those who dared to go.
However, there are certain mandatory precautions that one must take. The movie 127 Hours made it horrifically clear that adventure trips are no joke. It takes a lot of careful planning and we think that you should plan an adventure trip during the perfect weather period and perhaps you should start planning for it right away.
But don’t worry. At safetykart.com, we promise to keep you informed about everything that is essential for you to know. From the places that you should visit to the essential items that you need to carry for your safety and protection.
And with this post we start the roll of posts focusing on adventure, some exciting places to visit, different things that you can do for your trip, the essential hiking gear that you need to carry and items for the those who like to have the comfort of their home even when they are out in the forest in the middle of nowhere – because hell, everybody likes to get cozy when sleep beckons, especially at the end of a physically exhausting day.
Here’s a brief glimpse of what we are going to cover in the few weeks to come.
- Multi tools
- Survival Gears
- Safety Knives
- Car Emergency Tools
We will highlight the best products in every one of those categories and which one would be better suited to you.
And until then, here’s a brief introduction to one of the most beautiful places in India for those who lust for wanderlust.
Well, not this. This is a pic from Netherlands where horticulture is a major source of income.
This is a small valley located in the western Himalayas, in the state of Uttarakhand in the district called Chamoli. It is known for, obviously, its valley of flowers. Wonder what this place might be called? Well this place is called the Valley of Flowers. (duh!)
And it’s not just the flowers gracing the valley, this place is much more. It provides shelter to rare and endangered species like the snow leopard, brown bear, red fox and the blue sheep. Even the animals are as diverse and colourful as the flowers here.
The park is huge with a nice trek route for the enthusiasts!
The Valley of Flowers even appears on the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
However, hold your horses just yet. This is just a teaser. You don’t get to go trek to this place until June. This place only opens between June and October, because it’s covered in snow the rest of the year.
Getting to the Valley of Flowers requires a trek of about 17 kms with the nearest major town being Joshimath in Garhwal, which has convenient road connections from Haridwar and Dehradun, both about 270 kms from Joshimath. From Delhi, one can take the train to Haridwar and then travel by bus to Govindghat via Rishikesh. Govindghat is approximately 16 km before another important destination of Badrinath. It is also possible to drive from Delhi to Govindghat, a distance of which is about 500 kms.
With that, the teaser ends and the real stuff begins. So click that like button, hit that follow button, do what you got to do to see the next post – because adventure starts now.
