Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • How fit do I need to be for this trek?

Any person who is healthy and not suffering from any major illness can do this trek but a person needs to be mentally prepared too.

  • What about battery charging and hot water facilities?

Electricity is available there so you can charge your batteries as long as you have your charger and the hot water facilities are free on lower elevation while it may cost you as elevation increases.

  • Is it necessary to hire Guides/Trekking Agency for this trek?

It depends on you. Are all members of your family fit enough to do this trek carrying your own luggage? How confident are you of being able to find your way around? How pressed on time are you? If you go through an agency, it will be costly but they will plan everything for you. If you want, you can go directly with your family on this trek.  You can hire a guide and a porter by yourself instead of going through an agency or not hire a guide at all. Although, not having a guide can be a little problematic during the off-season.
