IMPORTANT TRIP ADVISORY:

Mountain walking is an art in itself. A good trekker is economical in his actions. If you watch a Hillman or a shepherd walking after his sheep, you will observe that he does not waste energy in unnecessary flailing of arms or legs. His strides are sure and steasy, and he soes not appear to be in a hurry. He htus reaches his destination without undue fatigue. Keep in mind the following points-

 

A common tendency among beginners and the experienced is to show enthusiasm by walking fast; this is soon exhausting warm up gradually and continue at a slow comfortable pace.

Develop a personal rhythm. Lift and keep your step in synchronization with breathing. This should minimize getting out of breath.

 

  • Walking on the level, place the foot flat, heel first, to obtain a better grip and gain a few centimeters with each step.
  • Walk in zigzags while ascending a very steep slope.
  • Avoid stepping on loose stones.
  • Avoid overtaking fellow travelers while walking on a narrow trail.
  • Ascending/ descending a scree slope or over loose stones, leave sufficient space between the next person so that any stone rolling down does not hit others below.
  • Do not run down a slope. Flex or bend knee a little while descending. Dig heels into soft snow or soft ground.
  • Wet grass, pine needles and wet roots can be very slippery. Be careful while walking on them.
  • Shortcuts on a foot trail should be avoided.
  • Put on warm clothing while taking rest.
  • Respect the sentiments and traditions of the local hill people. Respect their women and avoid mixing ort talking with them.
  • Don’t damage crops by walking through standing harvest.
  • Always carry some water in your water bottle.
  • Halts and Rests-

 

During a rest period, lie against a tree trunk or a big stone. Place your legs on your rucksack or on any other higher place. This will regulate your blood circulation.

Stop about 15 min. after the first start to readjust your rucksach or to tie a shoelace etc.

Do not make halts frequent or prolonged. Too many halts destroy walking rhythm. Frequent rests are not needed of you follow the right walking techniques. Stop should be made, wherever possible, at natural stopping points, like on the top of a ridge, of before a difficult ascent, or at a scenic viewpoint.
