The Benefits of Trekking

Share this post:

Trekking is a wonderful and memorable experience to be had with many benefits…

- Discovering beautiful scenery and wildlife – By trekking through various scenes you are presented with a variety of backdrops at different times of day while witnessing an array of wildlife.

- Experiencing new cultures – Meeting locals and visiting villages helps one to engage and immerse in the culture.

Meeting new people – While on a trek you are surrounded by like-minded and willing trekkers as well as locals that are eager to communicate with you.

Improving fitness – Treks are a great way to improve fitness through demanding terrain with high inclines along side fresh air and healthy eating.

Feeling of achievement – Once you have completed a trek, an overwhelming feeling takes hold after pushing yourself both physically and mentally for a number of days!

Contributing to small communities – Eating local food and staying in locally run lodges helps the local economy.

Oyster ensures all of the above with well organised trips in four Himalayan locations: Annapurna Base Camp, Ghale Gaun, Langtang, and Everest Base Camp.
