    I’ve experienced that if you keep a candy in your mouth while trekking you get less thirsty as washrooms are not available in many areas.

  4. Amit Dixit on February 22, 2021 at 9:09 pm

    sunscreen is a must for high altitude track.

    Hello mam which shoes will work for har ki doon Trek in mid November?

  34. Veer Dev on February 22, 2021 at 9:41 pm

    If you are a sole wanderer…or in small group…always have a packet camphor, match box and a lighter and swiss knife… always reach the place one evening before you start the trek…learns the details from the local Porters and hire them…

  35. Priyank Zilpe on February 22, 2021 at 9:42 pm

    Hello ma’am…. Do you organise hikking tours?

  37. Piku The Xplorer on February 22, 2021 at 9:43 pm

    Thanks for the useful infos❤️

  38. Dennis Chapman on February 22, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    Good video. Pretty darn close to my layout. I know a lot of hikers use phone apps for hiking and u had your phone on list. I think map and compass or navigation device should be #1 .
    Again good video. Made me sub😎

  39. GULLY GANG on February 22, 2021 at 9:46 pm

    easily accessible

  40. Ghaniya Aureen on February 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Another useful video. I am an independent trekker, and even if I haven’t ever trekked with India Hikes, I am so grateful to IH for their great help and handy tips and tricks. IH has redefined trekking in India. And has helped a lot of independent trekkers like me. And Swati, you are <3 🙂

  41. Senthil Kumar Karai on February 22, 2021 at 9:49 pm

    Thank you for the useful tips Swathi. I would like to add one more item, which is a pair of warm socks. in couple of treks like in Annapurna Base Camp and the Inner Kora of Kailash, when it snowed heavily my socks got wet and couldn’t trek with cold feet. In the second trek I carried the extra pair of warm socks, which rescued me.

  42. Veer Dev on February 22, 2021 at 9:52 pm

    A lot of things have been covered on these videos…some basic stuff is missing so let me cover it for you…while you are travelling to these places you would notice that that the mountains are in V shape….while moving forward you see the it U shape…if you move forward there is no shape at all…let me explain thin V shape resembles River valley…U shape resembles glacier valley… when there isn’t any shape then you are travelling on the mountain

  43. Steve Harris on February 22, 2021 at 9:53 pm

    Excellent and informative video, thanx

  44. abcde on February 22, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Thank you Swathi for the tips. Do you think a small note pad and pen would be of some help, just if I want to make some notes on the way

  45. Devanathan L on February 22, 2021 at 9:55 pm

    Sunscreen lotion is must for any trek above 12-14k altitude…even for an easy trek one should keep it handy

  46. SOLO TRAVELLER on February 22, 2021 at 9:57 pm

    Hello i want this bagpack

  47. Dr. Paresh Kumar Singh on February 22, 2021 at 9:58 pm

    How do you keep safe your team from the wild animals?

  48. Sneha on February 22, 2021 at 9:59 pm

    Hi Swathi,
    Do you think that carrying water purifiers would be helpful during treks? My concern is the possibility of catching serious water bourne illnesses while trekking, which would possibly ruin the whole trek experience. While I have only done day treks, I sufficed with carrying 2 ltrs from home. However, I’m quite unfamiliar with camping. Does everyone drink directly from river water or do you all have a purification process?

  49. Swati Chauhan on February 22, 2021 at 10:01 pm

    Helo Mam, Warm regards to you and your entire team. I just wanted to know where could I buy the track pants the one are wearing? Thank you in advance ☺️
