Most cities are very congested these days. Almost all of us are enslaved to a 9-5 job. There are so many rules and regulations that we have to abide by making life very stressful. Headaches and fatigue are common day complaints. In such a situation most of us want to get away from it all. We want to get out of the jungle of concrete that surrounds us and have a good time in the wilderness. Enjoying our time out with nature helps us relax and beat the monotony of life.
