Why Should We Backpack ?

“East or West, India is the best,” goes a popular song and why not! India has a whole lot to offer to travellers from any part of the world. Be it the snow-capped mountains of Kashmir that remind one of the Swiss Alps or the deserts of Rajasthan that take you to the arid lands of Africa, India is one country where you can find the entire world under one roof.

Is this why the concept of backpacking and travellers’ hostels rapidly catching up here? Maybe! But is this a sign that you need to start taking leaves from office and go backpacking across the country? Definitely! Well, if you aren’t convinced, we give you five more reasons on why you should sling a backpack across your shoulder and start moving!

Vacation on budget

What’s the first thing you look for when you travel? The best deals right? Enter backpacking. As a backpacker, you can travel on a shoestring budget by camping in some exotic locations instead of splurging money on expensive hotels. If camping isn’t your cup of tea, you can stay at some distinct backpackers’ hostels. Don’t want to eat in a restaurant? Don’t worry; most hostels have clean kitchens where you can whip up your own food.

A long sojourn

Every time we go on a holiday, time really flies doesn’t it? Is it because we are spending too little time on a holiday thanks to the expenses? If you backpack, you can save money and overstay your welcome at the place of your choice. This means you can explore more places and relax for a longer time instead of running short of cash in a few days. Isn’t that a great thing?

Fit and fine

Ever returned from a holiday with extra flab? Well, with backpacking, you can be rest assured that this won’t happen! Walking and hiking across diverse terrains with a rucksack on your back will surely help you lose a few kilos instead of making you pile on holiday weight.

No time table

As a backpacker, you can bid adieu to the days when you would be huddled into a bus with a group of strangers and taken from one point to another following the time-table of a guide. You can make your own itinerary and take each day as it comes. If you don’t want to trek today, never mind! You can always explore the mountains tomorrow and hit the beach today right?

Meet like-minded people

The best part about staying in a hostel is meeting fellow travellers from a plethora of cultures. You not only learn more about the person but also about his or her place of origin. And in this day and age of social media, you can easily keep in touch even after your stay and end up going on many trips together. After all, backpackers just need an excuse to travel.

“I travel not to go anywhere, but to go. I travel for travel's sake. The great affair is to move.” ― Robert Louis Stevenson
