For those who spend countless days cooped up indoors in offices, a chance to explore Mother Nature cannot be passed up. The beauty that nature offers us is unparalleled. Plus, the only way to see such things is to actually get out and walk. Snowcapped mountains and waterfalls are not visible from the office window, and even if they are, seeing them up close doesn’t compare to that rooftop view. There’s also a simplicity that comes with having everything you need to survive in a backpack, leaving behind all the distractions of modern life. And you get to learn a lot about yourself; from lessons such as patience and perseverance, hiking will offer you a glimpse into life that you never had before.
