Himalayas Trekking Trips in India

Himalayas is known for its historical, religious, and geographical significance. It is a meeting ground for different races, culture and religion. It is the perfect place to pursue adventurous journeys and trekking trips to explore the unknown side of the mountains. There are many different types of trips in India. As a mountaineer it was clear for me that trekking the Himalayas was my kind of trip.

How to Prepare for Trekking in the Himalayas?

Visa: Before packing or start your fitness training for the trip, you need to make sure you have a visa to enter India. I found the online visa simple and fast. I recommend iVisa https://www.indiavisaapplication.com/ which is a user friendly website and you’ll have your visa in less that 24 hours. I had a great experience with them. All you have to do is follow 3 simple steps:

Fitness: Not all of us practice sports on a daily basis but it is important that you do previously to a trip like this one. You will be trekking for many hours and demanding your body a little extra than usual. It is highly recommended to follow a well-defined fitness regime at least 3 months prior to the trek. This will ensure you will be in proper conditions to enjoy your trip at its most.

Food: I remember we had an amazing guide who would make the most delicious meals up on the mountain but that won’t always happen. The usual is that you will have a heavy breakfast and dinner and lighter lunches packed to be consumed as you go. The food will be mainly North-Indian.

Packing: The key to a perfect packing list is knowingly packing your bag for the things you only ‘need’. Your will be previously given a list of things you have to pack. Don’t pack more or less; pack what’s on the list!
