Backpacking is really fun thing to do, if you’re doing it the right way, with the right set of people, and with the right set of gears. As beginners, most find backpacking as a strenuous and fun adventure, but as you go deeper into the act, it becomes less burdensome, and more fun. For the maximization of fun in a backpacking adventure, vast amount of experience is needed. As backpackers, there are a lot of challenges to face, for a starter it wouldn’t be appropriate to go through that alone. Traveling with an experienced backpacker is highly recommended at this point.
