Chennai, Nov 29 (ANI): The Tamil Nadu Tourism Development Corporation (TTDC) has organised a trekking expedition to bust stress and promote physical fitness here.
According to Ravi, the manager of TTDC, the trekking programme is an opportunity for the general public, corporates, school and college students to reduce stress and experience the beauty of nature.
The trekking tour will cost a person about rupees 2,000.
"We found out that people have to exercise as the level of stress in their lives due to work load. Therefore, TTDC wanted to initiate this programme and we found out this place, which is perfect for trekking. So, instead of going elsewhere and exercising, we walk along with other. People will also enjoy trekking along with nature," he said.
He added that expedition programmes like these should be organized frequently, which will encourage preservation of nature and physical fitness among the youths.
The trekking enthusiasts feel themselves closer to nature and take it as a wonderful opportunity to explore the beauty of the state.
"This trek was absolutely thrilling and super cool. All of us should try to do this at least once a week. It is very healthy for us and keeps us fit and fine," said Shivani, a trekking enthusiast.
Similar trekking tours are being organized to Amirthi forests, Yelagiri and Kolli hills to promote tourism in the state. (ANI)
