A Typical trekking day: (5 to 6 hours of walking)
The start is early after a wholesome sit-down breakfast inside a mess tent. The guide and porters are
dismantling the tents and packing up your bags while you are having breakfast. The mess tent and the
toilet tents are the last to be packed. You set off carrying only a water bottle, camera and walking stick.
The porters carry everything else unless you would prefer to carry a small sack for candies and creams /
medicines. The pace is set by the guide in a manner to keep the group together and also give enough
time for photography etc. A scenic spot is selected to give packed lunch on a table with camp stools
around it. The lunch place will normally have a mountain spring to replenish your water bottles.
The walk after lunch will be just sufficient to allow enough day light to pitch up tents, do some cooking
and washing in order to have an early dinner and yet have enough time for tea and gossip around the
