Solo Trekking

What is a solo trekking ?

In ideal situations a solo trek is a trek done alone. Whereas many take assistance from the professional guide or trek company which arranges the logistics and helps them in guiding through the trails. Many people go for a solo trek and most of them have different reasons to do so.


Why do a solo trekking ?

The basic precautionary rule is not to venture alone in the wilderness and mountains. For this the second thumb rule is the go for an adventure in the mountains with people you know and trust. Most of the time it is not possible to have a hiking partner of your choice and who you bond with. Hence you join the regular group of strangers and find a room to connect with them in a trek or if you do not connect with them well enough you have the burden of staying diplomatic and trying to get social. The second scenario is where you don’t have a partner or you do want a partner and leave for a trek solo. The third scenario is where you hire the services of a professional guide or a trek company who manage all the logistics for you, guide you  along the trails.
