"In beauty may you walk"
Killarney town is surrounded by Killarney National Park and a series of mountain ranges which combine geometrical profiles, dramatic contrasts and beautiful colours.
After a walk, you can enjoy its peaceful and friendly atmosphere, and the kindness and hospitality of the local people.
Water running from streams, rivers, waterfalls and lakes along to The Wild Atlantic Ocean; woodlands with native and ancient trees covered in moss; wild flowers, ferns, heather and bracken; deer, wild goats, white-tailed eagles, foxes; remains of dwellings built by earlier inhabitants thousands of years ago will cause you to pause.
Walking in this scenery will enhance the positive side of your personality and you will be filled with a sense of well-being.
The journey through The Gap of Dunloe showcases the grey and purple majesty of Purple Mountain and the MacGillycuddy’s Reeks, which contrasts with Mangerton Plateau and the dramatic mountain passes around Horses Glen.
There is the vibrant magic and prevalent green of summer in the valleys and woodlands of Killarney National Park, which transforms into a rich tapestry of differing shades of golden browns as summer turns to autumn over the mountains of Co. Kerry.
Hill - Mindful - Walking will improve fitness, stamina, and the performance of the heart and lungs; it will help to cope with stress, and lower blood pressure. It is an effective way to strengthen the immune system and to manage moods, depression and anxiety. It also helps to sleep better and control body weight.
After a walk, you might feel a little bit tired, but have the impression that time passed quickly and have a feeling of happiness and well-being. Those are the signs that you enjoyed thoroughly the walk.
When we practice hillwalking, in a natural way we activate some aspects of mindfulness, like:
Concentration and attention
Live in the present moment
Feel your body in movement
Listen to your heart. Rate and rhythm....
as we walk at a comfortable pace.
KMH walks take place on varied terrain at different paces. Some sections of the routes will be over tough moorland areas and uneven broken ground, ascending hills and mountains over steep ground.
Often we do short stops to catch our breath; to admire the mountains, nature and wildlife; to take pictures; or have lunch break.
Do not forget the social aspect of walking in a group and the many benefits which it confers.
