Pack Your Rucksack :

  • Before leaving the camp for your next destination, you have to pack your essential things in the rucksack. Properly packed rucksack will not hinder your movements on difficult terrain.
  • Take a polythene bag and place it inside the rucksack.
  • Pack things first, which are not required during the day's trek.
  • Sleeping bag, if you have, will go first, than put spare clothes and other articles, not require on the way.
  • Carry only those articles, which are essential.
  • After packing, sling the rucksack on your shoulder and check the shoulder straps are tight enough to keep the rucksack close to your back. If not, then do it, but do not tighten too severely. Now you are ready for the track.

  • Before You March :

  • Check your shoes first. They should be comfortable (and never new)
  • They should be loose enough to accommodate 2 pairs of socks and to absorb the friction, which cause blisters. Talcum powder is useful to avoid friction and to cope with sweat.
  • Keep your shoes dry and clean.
  • If your shoes are wet, never dry them over fire. Stuff it with papers. Change your wet socks immediately.
  • Make it a point to change socks every alternative day at least, as a dirty sock not only smell foul but also causes blisters.
  • Lastly, have you tied your shoes properly?

  • Walking Manners :

  • Don't walk too fast to carry the weight (of a rucksack) from one camp to another; you are here to enjoy the scenic beauty of the mountains
  • Walk with a steady pace, set rhythm of your strides with your breathing. If you want to hurry a little, increase stride and not the pace.
  • While walking, keep your foot in full contact with the ground and not just the toes.
  • Do not swing your arms widely.
  • On step slopes, bend forward to take the weight on the back.
  • Be careful while walking on pine needles, wet grass, wet roots, which are slippery. Frozen water on the slopes, rocky patches and stones on the banks of the rivers and streams should be negotiated carefully.
  • Avoid loose stones.
  • Avoid crossing and overtaking on narrow paths. Don't block the path while resting.
  • Halts should be utilized not only to relax but also to readjust the loads, tie shoes etc. halts should not be frequent. Too many halts destroy the rhythm of a walk, make you more tired and waste time.
  • During heavy rain or storm, find a shelter- a cave, a projected rock, a dhaba or a hut. But don't stop it its raining lightly.
  • On your route, you may encounter flocks of sheep or bulls pr mules crossing your path or even vehicles. On such case, keep to the mountain side and not the side and not the side facing the valley.
  • Always drink water springs, and before drinking filter it with your clean handkerchief. Never drink too much water, it might give you cramps.
  • Consume liquids as much as you can, (tea, coffee, lemon juice, soups etc.) instead of drinking water.

  • Mountain Sickness :

  • Mountain or altitude sickness affects people at high altitudes. You may experience headache, disinclination to work, loss or appetite, breathlessness, cough, muscular weakness and fatigue. At heights above 14,000 ft apathy drowsiness and depression may be marked.
  • Prime reasons for these are less oxygen, different food and water and over exertion. If you follow the instructions, you may be able to counter mountain sickness to a great extent.
  • Drink more fluids like tea, coffee, lemon juice and other beverages at frequent intervals. There is a constant drain on blood fluids as the inhaled air contains little moisture.
  • However, in case of any serious illness, please do inform the camp leaders. They are to help you out.

  • Care Your Feet :

  • Your feet have been mercilessly pounding over the gravels, sand, rocks, streams etc. for several hours. They need rest and recuperation for tomorrow trek.

  • Take off your socks and wash them.
  • Wash feet as often as possible. Dry them rub vigorously between toes.
  • If feet look tender, wash them first with soap &water. Dry them & apply powder.
