How safe is it , in regards to COVID-19 ?
Here is our 8 point checklist that we follow on all our trips :
Frequently asked questions
Usually, most batch sizes are between 12-20 people who are aged between 16-38. Most people come alone or with a friend. The trip would feel like you are travelling more with college friends than strangers. We tend to do more outdoorsy things than regular trips . For example : If we find a very pretty waterfall/ a beautiful sunset / Rainbow on the way. We would stop the vehicle right away to catch the beauty of it.
We usually sleep very late on these trips as we play a lot of group games and most people feel they will miss the precious time with the group members and decides to stay awake.
Most people come alone for my trips. About 25% of the people bring a friend or partner.
Honestly It really doesnt matter. I have seen on all the bacthes I have lead. Most people really gel with everyone, even the ones who thought would'nt gel up, surprise themselves always with the way they got comfortable with everyone.
Back in 2017, i had one good jacket which i used to wear on all treks up in the mountains. One batch gave me this name coz they found my name a bit difficult to follow. It then stuck from there and when i finally decided to start leading my own trips/treks, there was no second thought.

We use quechua 3 man tents with insulation mats and sleeping bags in it. There will be 3 people in each tent. There will be a Dining tent and Minimum 2 toilet tents. The toilets are always dry toilets. So bring a roll of tissue paper.
Each camps are about 6 hours trek apart and we usually start at 8 am.
If you have never done a high altitude trek, then start with a easy or Easy- moderate trek. That way you will understand how your body reacts to high altitude and you can check you cardio strength too.
Another benchmark i usually ask people to try for themselves is as follows. If you can run
The reason such a standard is kept in place is that everyone in the group will be able to trek in similar pace. Else the lease prepared ones might fall behind and thats not a great thing.
