5 Step Planning For a Successful Trek in the Himalayas

Trekking in the Himalayas can be a fantastic experience. Preparation of your hiking trip raises your odds of a trekking trip. Proceed to make sure to remember some of the essentials in your preparation.

1. Trekking independently or Together with others
As a general notion, trekking alone in the Himalayas is not highly recommended. The main drawback is that in the event of an accident or a sudden bout of altitude sickness, you can be stranded for days away from civilization. You can't simply get a phone and phone for help. Nonetheless, it is possible to trek alone. The best thing about trekking is that you will be in control of where and when you stop for a rest or settle in at night. On the popular paths you can talk with trekkers and sailors. To prevent trekking alone, ask for hiking partners on some of the online hiking forums. You can hire a guide to go with you.

2. Trekking with a Guide
particularly if it is your first trek, a manual can be a good idea. You simply have to be certain that it's a fantastic guide who respects and knows your wishes. If possible, a face-to-face meeting with a manual prior to trekking is sensible. In many parts of the Himalayas, an area guide can be hired without having to pay a lot of money.

3. Camping trek vs. Tea-house trek
If you bring your own camping equipment on a trek, or if you're booking a camping trek through a trekking service, you will have extra probability of investigating the more remote mountain locations. It's a great way to escape from the beaten track and avoid the audience of trekkers. But it needs a lot more equipment. In areas like the Nepal Himalayas, it's not difficult to select a trek where you will be staying in family-run lodges along the route. These village lodges / tea-houses are located up to 4000 meters / 13,500 feet elevation and are open throughout the year.

4. In the Himalayas
Trekking in the Himalayas can really be done all year round. But the best time to trek is considered September-October-November for the southern side of the Himalayas, and July-August-September to the northern side of the Himalayas, also referred to as the trans-Himalayas. As there won't be so many trekkers and the weather is mostly clear December-January-February is a fantastic option. But you need to be prepared fall for mountain passes that are shut for days or weeks. Therefore, if you are on a tight schedule, you might have to abort your trek. The weather is generally great, though it can be a bit hazy.

5. Trekking style

If you are trekking together with friends or other individuals, make sure you agree on your ordinary 'trekking style'. Are you going gradually or fast? Are you currently following the paths or will you be doing off-trail expedition style?
