I started a two day wild camp in the Lake District by hiking to Helvellyn, which is England’s 3rd highest mountain (950m / 3117ft). It was a wonderful summer’s day to wild camp at the summit.
The route started at Swirls Car Park and I hiked the 3 miles via Browncove Crags. I was a wonderful night with great sunset and clear sky.
As a hypnotherapist, I know how important being in nature is.
Hiking and wild camping gives me an opportunity to disconnect from my busy life and reconnect with what is important – inner peace.
Sitting on a mountain, listening to nothing more than the sound of the wind and the birds (and occasional sheep!) is good for the soul.
