The sport of
trekking is not a modern fad but as old any
other exploratory instincts know to mankind. The
mountain folk have been doing it forever. There are
no boundaries to trekking and age is no barrier, you
are never too young and as old as you believe
yourself to be.
At a reflex
level, trekking is a physical challenge:
a simple desire
to pick a path and measure up to the terrain and the
elements. The adventure component adds the spice of
uncertainty, raising the stakes for you to test
yourself in unfamiliar territory.
On a deeper
level, trekking is a bridge between ancient
lifestyles: the fixed vision of a settler
counterbalanced by the transient motion of a nomad.
As an evolution from a simple walk into a more self
sufficient venture, trekking requires
simplification, a reduction to portable basics, and
implicit trust in your ability to define what you
need to live.
Because of the vastness of the terrain and altitude
difference, trekking trips can be undertaken the
whole year round. Treks range from low altitude
treks in winter to the crossing of high passes in
summer when the snowline recedes, It is also
possible to combine all three-river running,
trekking and mountaineering. The conventional
trekking periods preferred are mid-April to May-June
before monsoon and after the rains in the months of
Size & Precautions :
Trekking is best enjoyed in small groups not
exceeding eight or ten. This also allows the
hillside to regenerate. Larger parties create
administrative problems and pollute the hillside. It
is advisable to be medically examined before
starting, hence narrowing down the possibility of
altitude sickness. The first-aid kit should include
basic medicines and bandages foe cuts and burns,
headache, nausea, constipation, diarrhea, sore
throat, eye lotion and diuretics. Cold Cream should
be applied liberally before the day's walk. Running
water from a stream should be used and washing done
well downstream of camp-sites. Above all it is
essential to acclimatize and keep one's own
comfortable pace; allow for time to 'stand & stare'
and heighten one's perception by some prior reading
on the area.
Essential Equipments :
Personal clothing, including woolen shirts,
pullovers, T-shirt, shorts, leather jacket,
long-johns, socks, personal toilet items, cameras
and film, should be included to suit the duration
and altitude bags to collect and carry away garbage.
