but in jungle what helps is the sense of direction, awareness
of terrain, map reading ability, use of compass & last
but on the least is common sense.

or indifferent while in jungle, every situation demands
certain degree of competitiveness, though friendly. This
increases the Go- power in the participants, which busts
the lethargic approach to life. It pumps the adrenaline
in the participants.
22. Learn to listen to your inner voice - Instinctive
ness - Hunch Development:- We are all guided by our spiritual
guides all the times, but we rarely need it, in nature
we come very close to our inner self, we can almost hear
the inner voice which keep on guiding us through out.
Some call it instinct, some call it hunch, we call it
23. Ability to learn effectively:-when was the last time
we were learning something new & were not bored. This
is the activity where one learns very very effectively,
because one needs to utilize the same knowledge practically
in the very moment.
24. Acquirement of jungle/nature sense:- Once you are
in wilderness your sense of judgment changes, your perception
alters, your rationale responds differently, we have found
over a period of time this is close to premitive survival
25. Improved ability to tune into other peoples needs:-
While progressing through this activity, one needs to
tune into other people's needs very instinctively. Because
what you go through you see other people also go through
the same, and how you feel at that time is invariably
felt by others & vice-versa, this property makes us more
& more empathizing & understanding towards others. 26.
No limit approach:- There are times during this activity
when you almost call your efforts off, thinking you just
cant continue, but with experienced people like us around
we know its just small obstacles one can overcome, hence
we encourage & motivate & motivate participants so they
achieve target, it is only when you go back to city comforts
from the jungles that you realize that on your own you
couldn't have done it. But with no limit approach & little
guidance you can do it.
27. Increased daring/boldness - Challenge accepting:-
During this activity one tends to face fear on every step,
but somehow you gather courage & keep taking those bold
steps & that eventually increases your daring & result

challenges & in the end you win. This attitude carries
on in life, which helps in dealing with difficult problems.

teamwork where one needs to be resourceful & carry on
activity with whatever resources available. Participants
learn to be creative while managing campsite.
29. Discipline & its importance for success:- Success
without discipline is impossible phenomena, while in the
middle of this activity one must be absolutely disciplined,
without strict time management & self discipline one cannot
30. Time management & its importance:- When you are out
in jungles its important to mark & set time attributes,
since we belong to city & we start from city & must return
to city once activity is over, one must plan precariously
the entire schedule of activity, keeping in mind safety,
precaution & targets to be achieved.
31. Cooking techniques-Nutritional awareness:- When we
are out in the jungle rigorous activity needs to supplemented
with right nutritional diet, we spend lot of energy while
trekking & we must compensate it with high protein diet.
While in the camp we learn to take maximum nutritious
diet to comply with high energy expenditure. Same principles
of cooking & food preparations can be adapted at home
32. Rapport building ability:- This is extremely important
aspect of human personality, when it comes to interpersonal
relationships. One cannot learn effectively without building
proper rapport with seniors or fellow participants. In
order to understand other people's needs or make them
understand yours, proper rapport is very essential.
33. Taking initiative:- Many times we fail because we
never get started & it's almost always because we lack
initiative. During this activity every participant is
compelled to take initiative of some or other kind. The
sooner one learns to take initiative the faster grows
the level of confidence.
34. Logistics of trekking, hiking, camping:- This is the
attribute where one needs to be calculative practically,
with few outings in jungles & camps this ability increases
35. Self reliance:- While at home we are totally dependent
on our parents, but once we go out on treks or camps self
reliance is activated. One can't afford to be dependent
in camps because there is no one to depend on, so slowly
but surely one learns to be self reliant & self sufficient.
36. Energy conservation:- Almost always all the participants
tend to get tired in the first hour of the activity ,
because enthusiasm makes them spend more energy than required,
but eventually by the end of the activity they all learn
subconsciously how to conserve energy, rather their body
teaches them how it wants to be treated.
37. Logical/Rational thinking:- This is one of the most
important attribute one needs to build up in order to
be successful human being. While doing trekking & camping
one learns logical thinking although hard way sometimes.
By the conclusion of activity almost all the participants
know how logic works & what happens if one strays away
38. Planning & its principles:- We all know what happens
when we start of anything without planning, total chaos.
The success of this activity depends totally upon precarious
planning, without which tremendous inconvenience may be
caused & result will be failure in achieving target. Without
detailed planning this activity & our life can be directionless.
39. Building relationships:- Our life will be social void
without strong bonds we share with our acquaintances,
on the treks & in camps, even total strangers need to
build relationships because every now & then one tends
to give or take helping hand, & every one realizes to
be successful, every team member must achieve respective
target & its impossible without positive relationships.
40. Empathizing:- As a child we get lot of sympathy &
as growing adult we give out sympathy, for others shortcomings
or losses. But while doing this activity we encourage
participants to empathize with each other & try share
each other's feelings & offer suggestions or solutions
as per situations.
41. Mental toughness:- This is one of the most enduring
aspect of our activity, which sweeps away low confidence,
low self esteem, fear & negative attitude, we agree one
learns mental toughness hard way. But once you have learned
it you are free to explore outer world.
42. Safety consciousness:- On treks, while climbing &
descending while passing the treacherous terrains, one
faces fear head on. We encourage participants to be safety
conscious, not to be afraid unduly. We call this 'Controlled
exposure to danger.'
43. Respect for seniors & nature:- In childhood we were
taught to respect elders & teachers, while in the course
of this activity we teach them why they must respect seniors
& they must respect nature. One can learn by only paying
due respect to seniors & nature.
44. Creativity:- Often time we were baffled by the curiosity
& creativity shown by young participants. We appreciate
that & encourage them to carry on creative thinking. This
is where kids show their ultimate creative thinking, which
helps them in some subjects, such as drawing, crafts,
computers & studies.
Physical Benefits: -
ONLY FIT BODY CAN POSSESS FIT MIND

activity one feels different height of fitness. Not that
muscle power increases overnight but one realizes that
human capacity to exert physical power is limitless &
that's where one feels confident. 'Confidence of limitless

one feels that their ability to withstand rigorous physical
activity has improved a lot. A kind of effortlessness
ensues. When participant undergoes this activity first
time their body resists, but when one carries on sheer

it as normal routine, & that's where effortlessness comes

lots of awkward movements of body to which we are not
habituated in our routine life, but eventually body accepts
it & gets used to it, which improves our stretching &

are mainly walking oriented activities. After going through
uneven terrain repeatedly one tends to acquire superb
sense of balancing, which results in good standing & sitting
posture & which conserves lot of muscle energy.
5. Improved metabolism:- Its very unfortunate in today's
era that we have more plump/fat young kids than we used
to have in 70's & 80's, the reason being unbalanced diet
& slowed down body metabolism due to lack of physical
activity. Trekking certainly helps in setting the metabolism
speed right & which results in lean & healthy body frame.
