How To Chose Your Trek - An Aid

 

 

Nowadays, in the e-World, such articles are trending like "10 must do trek before you die", "30 treks to do before you turn 30", etc. By reading those articles, it gives a sense that the writer is not even a Trekker, on the first hand. May be a Bollywood Story Teller.. 

Trending articles and big companies in this market say a lot of JUNK to sell their treks.

Coming back to the topic of "Which trek should you do and Why" is a question you should always ask Yourself, before heading out for the trek. For anyone else, its not easy to answer and can never be generalized because each individual has their own taste of a trek. Those who does, do it for selling their own treks!! 

For example,

 

stok kangri summitIt said that you should do quite a few low altitude treks before attempting Stok Kangri, a 6153 meters trekking peak in Ladakh. Its wrong.. Many people do it as their first ever trek. We have taken and seen first timers on the top of its summit !! It completely depends upon The Individual, his mental strength and physical stamina. Altitude does present a medical threat, which can be prevented by care and following the rules. So why can't a physically fit and mentally motivated trekker chose Stok Kangri as his first trek ? 

Such articles end up selling 5 treks of that company before selling Stok Kangri as well !!

 

To know What exactly are the qualities required for to trek , follow the link Can You Trek ? Here we will try to answer How should you chose your trek.

 

 


Motivations For A Trek

Different Terrains You Encounter On A Trek

  • walk over a lush green, soft alpine meadows
  • crossing a boulder zone 
  • a slippery, muddy trail
  • climbing and descending a scree zone ( loose rocks of various sizes )
  • vast and deep snow field 
  • scrambling over rocks
  • icy and slippery climbs
  • through deep forest
  • cross a rough glacier
  • a steep climb and switch backs
  • high altitude, low altitude
  • river crossings
  • crossing a man-made delicate bride over a gushy river
  • semi technical climbs requiring ropes and ice axes
  • winding up through a village
  • camping in forest, or on top of a glacial moraine, etc

 

This list could go on.. The magnitude and thrill will further by multiplied by the Weather Factor. Rains, Heavy Rains, Snowfall, Hail Storm, Misty, Very Cloudy, etc will add its own variations to the trek. Not to mention, each of it is an experience in itself.

 

 


 

Different Grades Of Trek

Many trek for testing their physical abilities and are more motivated by how difficult the trek is. They like proving themselves to themselves and i n doing the same, they also enjoy the Himalayas.

When it comes to grading a trek, everyone has their own system of grading. Here, we would like to follow our own grading system . We grade treks Easy, Moderate, Moderate+, Strenuous, Challenging and Challenging+

 

Easy: Usual daily walks of 4 - 5 hours in altitude below 4000 meters. The sleeping altitude on these treks are below 4000 meter and the trails are gradual involving no steep ascent or descent. Sometimes, the trail may be longer, but on level trails. The duration of trek may be a week or lesser than it. The trek is not too remote and evacuation might be possible from almost any point of the trek

Moderate: The trek duration each day may span from 4 - 5 hours, but on some days, it may push up to 8 - 9 days. The trail might involve steep ascents or descents on occasions This kind of treks demand good fitness, and trekkers must involve themselves in cardio exercises regularly to do these treks comfortably. Sleeping altitude are below 4000 meters or little above it, but the trail might go as high as 4500 - 5000 meters. The trek is bit remote and evacuation might be possible from almost all, but not all campsites

Moderate + : This type of treks are bit more demanding than the moderate ones. It might involve few days of very long walks at higher altitude, or serious gradients, exposures, more remote or involves sleeping at higher altitudes for more days.

Strenuous: The trek duration each day may span from 5 - 8 hours, and may go up to to 8 - 9 on few days. The trail involves steep ascents and descents. Good fitness are demand of these treks, and trekkers must involve themselves in cardio exercises regularly to do these treks comfortably. Sleeping altitude may go above 4000 meters or little above it on couple of days, but not more than that. The trail might go as high as 4500 - 5200 meters. These trek are remote and evacuation might not be possible from all the campsites

Challenging: The trek duration each day may span from 5 - 8 hours, and may go up to to 8 - 9 or even more than that on few days. The trail involves steep ascents and descents. Crossing a glacier or a scree zone might be a feature of these treks. You might on some occasions, require technical equipment like rope, ice axe and snow stacks etc to complete these treks. Good fitness are demand of any treks, but these treks demands strong character. Sleeping altitude may goes well above 5000 meters on some days. The trail might go as high as 5000 - 6000 meters. These trek are high or remote or both. The trek usually might be a week long.

Challenging + :The trek duration each day may span from 5 - 8 hours, and may go up to to 8 - 9 or even more than that on few days. The trail involves steep ascents and descents. Negotiating glacial moraines, scree zones, crossing them, camping on them etc are features of these treks. You might also require technical equipment like rope, ice axe and snow stacks etc to complete these treks. Good fitness are demand of any treks, but these treks demands strong character. Sleeping altitude may goes well above 5000 meters on some days. The trail might go as high as 5000 - 6000 meters. These trek are high and remote. A good technical support team and knowledgeable local guide is a must. Only experienced trekkers are advised to do these treks. The trek goes over 2 week and may be longer than that.

 


Firstly, its a general convention that a beginner should chose an easy trek which spans upto a week. Once done, and you get a feel of the actuals and that sets your expectations and makes you knowledgeable for the future treks you take. Then it is said that you should steadily increase your altitude and difficulty level. Well that might not be a bad thing to do, but it is definitely not a defined rule as the way they are said.

I say, your future treks are completely your own choice steered by your heart and what you want to achieve. There is no harm in choosing a difficult trek as your first trek, but with proper consultation, research, being knowledgeable of the difficulties to be faced and your confidence in handling those. Probably being in the company of experienced trekkers will elevate your thought process and therefore your choice !! 

You do need few basic qualities in you, and if you think you lack those, or if you want to grow them steadily, you may chose your treks steadily as well, guided by your future goals.

Before planning a trek, do ask yourself three questions -  What do I want from it?   Then ask Why ?   Then decide Which Trek can give you those ??

 


 

Geography, Mountain Peaks, Rivers, Glaciers and Photography

The vista and beauty offered by the Himalayas are the best of nature and I do not need to speak about it. Many trekkers are motivated by the beauty of it . The view of a Himalayan peaks are a precious gift to be cherished for lifelong. The beauty of a trek is you see a peak for a longer span of time over a period and witness the magic created by the different elements of the nature. Here different elements of nature like clouds, mist, streams, rivers, stones, bushes, flowers, lake, valleys, snow fall...  everything plays a drama each time, and at any moment of time, you have a different view to cherish and an experience to live.

If you are a photographer or a nature lover, then you will be more motivated by treks which offers good views, and when I say the word GOOD, I know that it is a INDIVIDUAL PERSPECTIVE and respect that by not defining it.

 

 


 

Wild Life, Fauna And Cultural Experience 

Himalayas are a great place to witness wildlife. More than 45 national parks and forest reserves are there in the Himalayas of India, Nepal and Bhutan and these are the dwelling place for variety of species.  The natural reserves of the Himalayas are of huge importance and for many trekkers, it is a motivation to select their trek.

Equally important is the unique cultural experience offered by a Himalayan trek. Here, its a home to some of the most unique cultures in the World and many are motivated to trek the Himalayas to experience the rich and vivid cultural of the Himalayas.

 

 


  

 **  We have left out the psychological factors as a motivation to select a trek

Every day I keep learning new things, but as of now, I think I can describe myself as a Loyal Himalayan Lover, Avid Trekker, Student Of Mountaineering, Amateur Photographer and an Enthusiastic Anthropologist. I am a Computer Science Engineer by education and previously worked as a Software Developer for premium IT companies. However, I quit the luxury of a high-earning corporate job and left behind the herd to walk towards the spiritual path laid down by the Godly Himalayas. At the age of 27 with no savings at all and being the only son from a lower-middle-class family, it was too young to fight against the family who in turn had to fight against the rules laid down by society. However, with my determination and perseverance, everything became smooth by passing time.

It wasn't easy for me as I learnt the hard way from mistakes - my own and by observing others. I fought 2 major road accidents that broke my right tibia and femur. I underwent 7 surgeries that kept me away from the mountains, but I patiently fought them all to get back to trekking again in the Himalayas with rods and plates in my bones. Despite doctors saying I cannot walk properly ever again to getting back to trekking on the difficult routes again, Life made me understand very clearly what it wants out of me in this World. It wants me to serve the Himalayas and its community, live a peaceful, content and simple life. That's what I have dedicated my this life to. I am not religious, but spiritual. The Himalayas define my road.

The Himalayas today is spammed by mushrooming trek agencies and big companies who take pride in being India's Largest, biggest, oldest, etc. They are exploiting everything for the sake of profit. It is in dire need of regulation by credible Government authorities, Sustainable Tourism Practices needs to be forced upon every organisation, Small Group Sizes needs to be mandated, Fixed camping should be restricted in alpine zones and Negative Ecological Impact Trekking Protocols should be laid down immediately by governing bodies. With all these objectives, I founded Himalayan High in the year 2015. Learn more about Himalayan High on About Himalayan High
