Clothing

Clothing is one of the most important aspect of trekking but that doesn’t imply the “what if situation”, hence carry the clothes that you’d need normally. Carrying more and more clothes will only add the weight, thus problem. Once on the trek, you’d not generally need to change the clothes every now and then, provided if you maintain your hygiene properly.

Three warm layers: On high altitude treks, temperature after the sunset drops to the considerable degrees. So during these campsites, you might need an additional layer along with the padded jacket coupled up with a fleece and a warmer.

Three trek pants: Please don’t go for jeans/ denims for the substitute for the trek pants since they’d not add comfort to your stay at the campsites. Wear one pair and carry the remaining two.

Three collared Shirts: It’s advised to wear full sleeved shirts instead of the t-shirts in order to prevent ourselves from the sun-burn. Carrying a dry-fit t-shirt or two can be a wise idea if you’re trekking during the rainy season. Regardless of the cold weather, trekkers’ bodies tend to sweat and to prevent yourself from falling ill, you’re advised to change your clothes at campsites.

Warmers: Warmers or thermals can be added on one’s own concern related to their health and their exposure to the cold climate.

Balaclava: You may utilize woolen scarves rather too.

Socks (2 sets): Apart from two sports socks, you can take a couple of woolen socks for the night as they’d spare you from the dripping temperature.

Headlamp/LED burn: Mandatory

Trekking pole: Having a trekking pole in your hand during the trek is boon, although at times it may bother you as an unnecessary article but it proves out most handy during the submit as it curbs your effort of straight inclinations of the high altitudes which often turns out tiring.

Toiletries: Be wise while choosing your cosmetic needs and daily use products. Refrain from using the non-biodegradable products, if you do so then make sure that you leave residue on the mountains.

We provide the highly nutritious meal to energize your body for the trek, however before certain long trails we ensure your nutritional requirements to be fulfilled with some high energy snacks or packaged lunch.

In case of any symptoms you feel during the trek, don’t ignore or avoid them, immediately tell the trek leader.

Keeping up with the pre-defined processes and the guidelines will help you to have a memorable trekking experience.


What Trekveda has to offer in case of medical emergency like AMS, HAPE or HACE?

In case of medical emergencies, Trekveda and its trek leaders bear the sole responsibility to get you back to your wellbeing with their training and techniques. Suspecting any physiological disturbance in your body, immediately report to your trek leader as they are trained to counter such problems.

Problems like Acute Mountain Sickness can be prove fatal if not taken into consideration seriously on time. If you encounter/experience any of the symptoms such as persistent headache, fatigue or weakness, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, difficulty in sleeping, you shouldn’t let it go or treat it by your own either.

Acute mountain sickness is one of the most common yet the fatal problem trekkers face due to number of reasons, if the problem continues to persist, then you’re advised to descend down to the basecamp and then to visit the doctor immediately.

People with AMS are treated with number of medicines such Diamox, Nifidipine etc. coupled up with methods like Triple One Test- where one disprin is given with a liter of water along with the rest for an hour.

While AMS is most common at the high altitudes yet it can’t be risked taken casually as it leads to severe fatal conditions like HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) or HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) which, if not treated on time can lead to number of serious chronic disorders. These conditions need to not to comply with AMS, they can occur without AMS preceding.

It’s suggested to take every single disturbance into the consideration while you’re on the trek.

However, Trekveda is capable of tackling all the medical emergencies with its trained professionals yet there are several things that you need to consider, specially the intake of medicines and the knowledge about their advantages and side-effects. Don’t administer the medicine if you’re trekking through an organization, always seek help from the trek leaders, they are trained for such purposes, while in case of being a solo trekker, you should know about the medicines.

Keeping yourself hydrated and nutritionally fulfilled curbs the chances of AMS.


Risk and Response

A high altitude trek requires an audacious state of mind, however leaving on a bold excursion without computing the dangers is absolute idiocy. That is the reason we have recorded a couple of Risk and the Response arranged by Trekveda to limit or address the dangers in the most ideal way.

Risk: Altitude

Before you begin the trek, it is critical to comprehend the ramifications of high altitude on your body. Know about side effects of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mellow cerebral pain, queasiness and general distress.

Response: If you feel any of these indications, illuminate the trek pioneer on need and take after his directions. Each campground has as stretcher, completely prepared medical aid pack, oxygen chambers to address the circumstance.

Risk: Weather

Weather is unusual in the Himalayas. Despite the fact that we are constantly attentive about the evolving climate, nobody can ensure a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do comprehend that your security is of most extreme significance to us and we won't continue any further from the campground if the climate isn't ideal.

Response: The choice of the Trek Leaders and Guides to continue or sit tight for the climate to show signs of improvement will be last.

Risk: Injuries

Often, while trekking over troublesome territories, you may have minor wounds like leg sprain, wounds and so forth. Genuine wounds like breaks or real cuts are exceptionally uncommon.

Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are prepared to deal with crises and can handle minor wounds with an all-around prepared medical aid unit. If there should arise an occurrence of genuine wounds, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the closest street head and is directed to closest therapeutic focus.

Risk: Lack of Communication

In the remote zones of the Himalayas, portable systems don't reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the universe of calls, SMS or WhatsApp Messages.

Response: We’d depend on walkie-talkies and sprinters to communicate between the campgrounds and the base camps.

Pre-Trek Preparations

Trekking, for its ever-lasting memories and experience, demands just a few things which involve physical endurance with physiological wellness. Not just the one who’s physically fit would do the magic in trekking but one also needs to be mentally fit as well in order to cope up with the adversities one might have to face during the treks such natural calamities, rains or other unforeseen conditions. To keep up with such requirements of trekking here are a few things you can do to get yourself physically fit.


Prerequisites of the Trek

Cardiovascular Endurance and Stamina

Cardiovascular endurance is the primordial thing that this trek asks for along with the stamina to withstand the stringent conditions during the trek. There are number of ways you can increase your endurance level but Jogging regularly with gradual increase in the pace would do the magic in just 2 or 2 and a half months. You can also increase your endurance and stamina through swimming, cycling and much more.

Combining the speed and distance target is the most effective way to get your body and mind prepared for the Valley of Flowers Trek. If you’re planning to build your stamina in a phased manner then here you should pay heed to:

  • Target completing the distance of 5 km in 35 minutes or less at the beginning
  • Pace up your legs to complete the 5 km in 30 minutes or less
  • Before you begin the trek, you should be able to complete 10 km in 60 minutes or less

Strength

To build the strength is another most important thing and a major requirement for this trek. The whole journey of the trek is like an eternal staircase, the more you climb the better you can have the view. It goes with a climb followed by a flat then again, a climb followed by a flat. All the scenic beauty of the trek demands no less than the power of your legs.

The strength of your legs is something you need to work upon. Here is what you can do to strengthen your leg muscles to bear the pain of the trek.

Doing the squats can help. Goal for 3 sets of 15 repetitions without fail. You can begin with 8 squats in each set at the beginning, subject to your core strength for the exercise.

Flexibility

The more flexible you are the more you have the chances to get the glimpse with lesser hustle. Stretching is another major aspect of the trekking which provides you the much-needed flexibility to climb the altitudes with ease while carrying the backpack altogether is not an easier errand.

Stretching your body at large can bring you the utmost comfort during the trek. Here are some stretching you can do to get the flexibility-Stretch your hamstring, quadriceps, hip flexors, lower back muscles and shoulders. They’ll give strength and help you arrive on the slopes with the relaxed muscles. All these exercises would help you to get through the trek with ease and comfort provided you give an ample time to these.

Cardiovascular Exercise

Cardiovascular exercise is one of the most sought-after method which provide not just the physical endurance but also the strength to withstand any unavoidable circumstances sternly. Trekking demands the high endurance which you can develop in a month or two where you need to begin with the jogging or running (only if you could do). This practice needs to be combined with the speed and distance targets. You need to keep on increasing both with the time.

Begin with the small chunks of the targets and gradually increase for the bigger one. For instance,

Begin with a target of completing a distance of 5km. in 45 minutes and then gradually increase it to 7 km. in the same time and remain stick to this practice until you are able to cover 10 km. in 80-90 minutes without fail, at a stretch.

Considering everything under the sun, you ought to prepare yourself for the core strength. A strength would be make you suffer less than others who’d not pay the heed.

Flexibility

Flexibility in the body is what the trekking demands the most. Carrying the backpacks without flexibility in your hamstrings, quadriceps, shoulder, lateral sides etc. can prove out to be fatal. More the muscles relaxed, easier would be your trekking experience. Carrying a backpack, however light in weight, can bring you the unnecessary pain which may spoil your entire trek.

Concentration

To pacify yourself or any other companion, yoga and meditation are the key. These practices not only give you the mental peace but also provide you with a placid inner conscience which is extremely important in order to withstand the cons during the trek.
