During the trek you will be provided tent on double sharing basis. Before and after trek you will be staying in a decent hotel on double or twin sharing basis.

We would need dry fit clothes, good walking socks, good quality waterproof jackets and good pair of water proof hiking shoes. Trekking pole is also recommended

We would recommend you to carry water purifier tablets, anti bacterial hand gel mosquito spray, wet wipes and lot of sunscreen.

At every campsite, there will be toilet tents with dug in style.

The trek climbs into the foothills of the Himalayas, up to a maximum of 3000m. The route isn’t technical as long as you are reasonably fit. It is best to be well prepared and to have undertaken some training back in the UK so you are familiar with moving over mountainous terrain. You don’t need to be a marathon runner though! A general rule of thumb is if you can walk on average for 4-6 hours a day for two consecutive days back-to-back and have walked in a mountainous environment beforehand so you are familiar with walking up a hill and the terrain, you will be more than ready.

Meals are provided on the trek although it is advisable to bring some home comforts with you and your favourite snacks. Whilst trekking, it may be hot so chocolate is not recommended. Muesli bars you can eat during the day are a great idea as are packets of nuts, seeds and dried fruit.

The simple answer is no. The muleteers will carry your luggage on the trek but you’ll be required to carry what you need during the day. A 20-25 litres rucksack will be ideal for carrying water, food, personal items, spare clothes and first aid.

In many countries around the world, tipping is part of the culture and in India is standard practice. Tips in restaurants are normally in the region of 10-15% and boost the earnings of the local people.
