Top 10 Reasons Why Girls Should Go Solo Trekking in Himalayas

Posted By : Team/ 268

For all the spunky, spirited and carefree girls reading this blog, why girls should go solo trekking and why the Himalayas? Renok brings to you 10 terrific reasons.

Times are changing! And it is all for the best! Venturing into uncharted terrain is no longer just about geography. It is also no longer just a man’s world.  To cite a famous ad for a scooterette, “Why should boys have all the fun?

When the mighty Himalayas beckon the girl in you to take the trekking challenge, how will you respond? Will you choose the “travel agent-guide-safety in numbers” path or the one “less travelled”, the one that urges you to go solo? Trekking solo, especially in the Himalayas, is not for the faint-hearted (or the weak-kneed). For all the spunky, spirited and carefree girls reading this blog, why girls should go solo trekking and why the Himalayas? Here are 10 terrific reasons:

    1. I go to the hills when my heart feels lonely

From the enticing Ladakh plateau to serene Sikkim, from the magical Valley of Flowers Trek in Uttarakhand to the surreal landscapes of Himachal Pradesh, regions from the Northwest to the Northeast are happily couched in the awe-inspiring Himalayas, waiting to be explored.

      1. I am the master of my fate

Going solo Trekking in himalayas is definitely for the free-spirited, uncompromising, at-my-own-pace kind of gal. Group trekking to the Himalayas has its advantages. However, if you are the kind who prefers to chart out her own itinerary, stop a little longer or skip a spot without feeling guilty about it, solo trekking gives you that wonderful power of choice.

    1. I am responsible

Paradoxical as it may seem, solo trekking in the Himalayas will bring forth the responsible, pro-active side of your nature. There is little room for mistakes. You plan better, you are more adequately stocked, your backups and emergency options are thought-out to perfection. Collective trekkers do well in groups – but rarely pay attention to the itinerary or supplies, and are consequently lost if, Heaven forbid, they are indeed “lost”.

      1. I say ‘Hello stranger!’

The Himalayas are not just about inspiring landscapes, lush valleys and thick blankets of snow. They are also about beautiful people – smiling, hospitable, and spontaneous, from Ladakh to Uttarakhand. Solo trekking is also about reaching out to these beautiful people who “happen” along your route. Some may give you valuable insight into life in the mountain ranges. And it would be easier for you young ladies, since locals would be happy to help without feeling threatened.  Be cautious, tough, and trust your instinct when it comes to befriending a stranger.

      1. I have confidence in me

Again, contrary to what one is normally conditioned to believe, young ladies are moving out of their comfort zones into hitherto unexplored domains.  Going solo trekking to the Himalayas is a brave choice, one that requires heaps of confidence. Nothing is familiar. Deep-rooted fears need to be overcome. Courage will be your ultimate ally in the face of lurking dangers. But, as a wise person put it, “Outside of the comfort zone is where the magic happens”.

      1. I think positive

For the young lady who thinks positively, solo trekking only reinforces the positivity. You have chosen a path that is fraught with uncertainty and possible failure at making it to the destination. This could be due to reasons beyond your powers – altitude sickness, landslides, a broken ankle. However, the mountains, nature, fresh air – they could all be lost on you if you are constantly fearful and full of nerves.  If you choose to trek solo in the Himalayas, you have also chosen to transform yourself into a more positive person, expecting things to work out for you instead of dreading failure.

      1. I learn to pace myself

Solo trekking with no guidance teaches you a valuable life skill – learning to pace yourself. You are no longer “controlled” by gadgets, tutors, parents, competitive exams or the system. You pace yourself, with every step. What a superb lesson the Himalayas can teach you, girl! You know when to pause for breath, when to speed up, how to listen to your body and slow down. This is one skill that girls, forever expected to multitask and juggle different roles as they grow into womanhood, cannot do without.

    1. I choose health

The very act of solo-trekking is a test of your physical and mental health generic for benicar. How healthy are you? If you are the kinda girl who takes loving care of body, mind and soul, the solo-trek up the Himalayas would be the perfect test of your physical and mental strength. And if you are fit and with a body to die for, the Himalayas will help you stay that way.

      1. I now have a great profile

Yes, you can put authentic pictures of you surrounded by the majestic Himalayas, with all your trekking gear on, on your facebook page.  Your penchant for doing things creatively and out-of-the-box could be a great way to boost your CV too – just what the new-age employer is looking for!

      1. I reconnect with myself

Solo, in the Himalayas – there could be no better way for you to reconnect with yourself.  There is no one to impress, no one to judge or be judged by, no room for pretense or unnecessary social niceties.  You can be yourself and love yourself exactly the way you are.

As Maya Angelou puts it smartly: ” You alone are enough. You have nothing to prove to anybody”.


Go girl, go and live your life in the Himalayas, at least once in your lifetime!

10 Must Things to Do When Trekking in Himalayas

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 309

Planning to go for a trek in Himalayas here is the list of 10 must things to do before the trek. No matter whether you are going in an organized trekking in Himalayas or self organized these are the must things to do before the trek.

10 Must Things to Do Before or during Trekking in Himalayas

Planning to go for a trek in Himalayas here is the list of 10 must things to do before the trek. No matter whether you are going in an organized trekking in Himalayas or self organized these are the must things to do before the trek.

1) Thorough Research on your Trek
It’s mandatory that you do your thorough research about the trek. You need to know about the place you will be trekking, weather conditions, the terrain, average trekking distance between camps, Difficulty level, Time etc and plan your trek accordingly.

2) Carry the Right Trekking Equipment
No once can predict the weather on mountains especially when trekking in himalayas. So hope for the best and be prepared for the worst. Hence carry proper gear and trekking equipment’s.

Rainwear, torches, trekking poles, caps, mitten, gloves, sleeping bags or tents being some of the essentials. When trekking in snow do carry proper snow boots & Gaiters.

3) Pack Proper Clothing
It’s rightly said that “THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER, ONLY BAD CLOTHING”. By wrong clothing, footwear and trekking equipment you are inviting trouble during the trek. These things can lead to injuries so pack as advised. Check our list of Trek Essentials.

4) Carry a first aid kit
A first aid kit must be the first thing you should pack for your trek. Needless to say, you should always carry basic medicines and ointments while trekking. This will avoid you from stopping in the middle of the trek due to some injuries!

A winner is a dreamer who never gives up!


5) Pack your backpack correctly
Got all your stuff ready for the trek? Packing your backpack properly can make your trek comfortable, efficient and can even save your life! Read our guide ‘Backpack Infographic’ to know how to pack your trekking backpack in the right manner.

6) Avoid Alcohol & Smoke 
Avoid alcohol and smoke before your trek in himalayas. At 6000 feet above sea level, you exhale and perspire twice as much moisture as you do at sea level and alcohol further dehydrate the body.


7) Never plan your trek without a guide when it’s your first time
It’s always better to go with an experienced trek leader. As Himalayan Trekking trails are tricky, it is advisable that you don’t go solo for your first attempt. Choose the right company/ group of people or take a local guide along.

8) Keep yourself Hydrated
Your fluid requirements will increase significantly when trekking in Himalayas because in Himalayas the climate is Cold and Dry. Drink good amount of water before you feel thirsty. During your trek you should have Water stops every 1 hour and try and drink little and always remember “When in mountains never share your water with anyone”. This is the habit to be developed to be self sufficient.

9) Keep it light on stomach 
When you are on trek in Himalayas take extra care because even a good doctor is helpless without his equipment. So avoid eating heavy meals while on the trek. Carry simple and easily digestible foods so that you get instant energy.

10) Know Your Limits
If you don’t have the habit of walking long distances, you can try to cover short distances and take breaks. Fatigue is a common problem that most people usually face while on an excursion. You are the only one who is aware of your physical strength and endurance, so always keep your limitations in consideration.

No matter How hard it was during your trek in the himalayas but once you return you will come to know how enriching experience it was.

6 Tips to help you in Chadar Trek – Frozen River Trek

Posted By : Team/ 230

Deep in the valley of Ladakh, tucked away in the ravines, is the wild river Zanskar. Come winter, this lovely river is enveloped by a blanket of ice. And that is what the Chadar Lake refers to – a sheet or a blanket over water.

The Zanskar Frozen River Trek

Deep in the valley of Ladakh, tucked away in the ravines is the wild river Zanskar. Come winter, this lovely river is enveloped by a blanket of ice and trekking over this blanket of ice is what the Chadar Trek refers to. To be specific, Chadar awaits your visit in the months of January and February. Surrounded by the breath taking gorgeousness that Ladakh provides for, walking over the Chadar is nothing less than a surreal experience which will be the stuff, greatest of your memories will be made of.

Considered as one of the toughest treks in the country, the Chadar Trek is often on the bucket list of many trekkers. However, even the most experienced trekkers are sometimes tempted to postpone trekking on Chadar which reaches sub-zero levels in the winters. This trek is all about extreme and insane cold, with temperatures ranging from -1ºC to -20ºC through the day and night. But, fret not.

Here are 6 tips to brace yourself and walk on this breathtaking frozen River Trek ( Chadar Trek) without any glitches.

  1. Prepare Your Mind First

There is no mountain too high and a trek too tough for the mind which has found its resolve and calm. Train your mind to expect and accept the sub-zero level. Do bear in mind that there is life which exists there as well; For centuries Chadar is used as the only way to commute to Leh during winters. Your mental strength will signal your body to withstand the cold clime.

  1. Pack Warm Clothes, Especially Exothermic Pouches

Don’t forget to pack your woolen apparels and accessories – jackets, fleece, thermals,  socks, gloves and mufflers. We especially recommend carrying little heat releasing exothermic pouches or pads as they add an extra layer of warmth. Meant for single usage , these pouches are good to last up to 10 hours and are the real live savers while you are at Chadar Trek – The Frozen River Trek. Slip them in your gloves, boots or jackets and they will keep you warm. You can find them online and exclusive adventure shops in your city. Or, you could even purchase them from the local Leh markets.

  1. Carry Gum Boots and Running Shoes

While you may possess the best quality trekking shoes, nothing can beat the grip and comfort of gum boots while waking across and over the Frozen River Trek (Chadar Trek). And not to mention, gum boots are comparatively cheaper and more reliable too. The only downside to gum boots is that your feet will sweat a lot, leaving your socks damp. You will realize this only once you take them off. Hence, make sure throw in a few extra pair of socks in your trekking bag.

There may be stretches with some knee high water levels which you may need to cross.  Here, your trekking shoes are likely to give you a better grip than the hiking boots. So, you would need to carry both gum boots and trekking shoes.

  1. Take Along Two Sleeping Bags

As it is clear by now, you will be living in very cold temperatures while you are here. Add to that, the wind element which make the nights even colder. You want to be warm and well rested. So make sure that you have a good sleeping bag (with a liner) and an additional sleeping bag, should you need more protection against the cold. As you tuck yourself in, don’t forget to put all your belongings, including metal flask into the sleeping bag as well. Else they will be frozen, if left outside. Though we will provide you the suitable sleeping bags for Chadar Trek but carrying one of your own always helps.

  1. Stop, observe, go

The locals can give you a first hand training of how to cross the lake on your foot. On a closer observation, you would notice that they walk fast and take Penguin like strides on the ice. As you watch them, you will learn their ways of maneuvering around on the ice blanket and learn when is it wiser to wait than to carry on, or the reverse. A few hours of keen observation should teach you a lot!

  1. Keep Your Electronics Warm

Did you know that cold can drain out the charge from your electronics? So make sure you don’t run out of that precious battery when you want to take those breathtaking photographs. Keep them safe by tucking them in your pockets closer to your body it will keep them warm and long lasting. Additionally, carry some extra batteries too.


Keep the above mentioned points in mind and you will surely breeze through this trek. As courtesy to Chadar Lake and fellow travelers, make sure that you do not litter and are aware of anything accidentally which may be getting thrown in the terrain. It is, after all our duty to keep this little piece of heaven just that- pristine and clean.

Be safe, be warm. Bon Voyage!

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 369 1

Trek in Himalayas isn’t just a leisure pursuit simply to escape the hustle & bustle of our polluted cities. It is the way we get connected to our motherland.

Trekking in Himalayas isn’t just a leisure pursuit simply to escape the hustle & bustle of our polluted cities. Trekking is a way to get connected with Mother Nature. While this is something many of us may understand, we have a responsibility to pass down the love of nature to future generations. Trekking isn’t just about getting out into the woods, it is about learning how to deal with different situations and adapting to them. Trekking lets us grow as individuals, and the best classroom in the world can be a trekking trail in the Himalayas. In our experience we have seen whoever comes to trek in Himalayas becomes caring, calm and much relaxed person.

During Trekking you will discover that there are better things in world then TV and Video Games

In our fast paced urban life we hardly find any time to go out and play and watching TV and playing video games has become our only past time which is dangerous to our mental as well as physical health. Going on a trekking trip to himalayas gives you fresh air, better smells, better light and no mobile networks makes sure that you are totally connected to yourself.

Life is full of crests and troughs and both are equally important

If you ask any trekker they will have great a appreciation for life. Trekking in Himalayas shows the different aspects of life which we normal don’t see in our urban life. Trekking and experiencing nature lets us see the true circle of life.

We need to Protect the Environment

After your trekking trip to Himalayas you will come to know How fragile our environment is and we need to protect it for our future. Seeing gushing rivers and waterfalls will urge you to save them them.

Water is Important

Trekking will you the importance of fresh water when you can only drink what you carry in your bottle, one really develop the understanding of importance of water. Selection of camping site highly depends on water source. You need to plan according to the availability of water along the trekking trail. All these things makes you realize the importance of water.

There are Other ways to Get High !!

Trekkers do drink and do other stuffs to get high but when they are on trekking trip they are already high by the sheer thrills of walking in woods or crossing rivers bare foot and they less likely to demand for any other things to get high.

You Have To Leave Your Comfort Zone To Get Better Things

Leaving your comfort zone and being uncomfortable for some time is always rewarding. Pushing your body limit to reach at new Lake, Peak or any high altitude pass will give you a feeling which cannot be describe in words.

Hard Work Usually pay Off

Struggling along a trekking trail for hours at a time can be exhausting and frustrating, but many trekkers get a rush of adrenaline from reaching their destination. Yes, legs might be sore or tired and sweat might be dripping off your face, but completing a goal is a great thing to accomplish.

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 227 1

How to Stay Warm in Sleeping Bag while Trekking: Keeping yourself warm during your trekking trip is very important and here are 10 tips to keep help you

10 tips on How to Stay Warm in Sleeping Bag while Trekking




1. Get In Sleeping Bag Warm:

Do a few jumping jacks. Push ups just enough to warm yourself up but before you start sweating. If you get in a sleeping bag when you are cold you’ll likely stay cold.

2. Fuel up:

If it’s going to be a very cold night considers a pre-bedtime snack that will keep the furnace burning. Slow burning fatty snacks are better than refined sugars or caffeine.

3. Water:

You need to be well hydrated to stay warm. How much water to drink within the hour or two before you go to sleep is determined by how fast you process it? If nature calls in the middle of the night get up and go! Holding it in makes you colder and remember to cover your head while going out.

4. Wear Only Dry Clothes

As soon as you reach the camp change your damp clothes which you wore during the day trekking. If you wear them to sleeping bag you will have to heat your damp clothes before you get warm.

5. Use Your Trekking Water Bottle:

Consider using you trekking water bottle filled with hot water and keeping it in sleeping bag to you’re your feet warm. This will also serve other purpose of keeping that water bottle at body temperature so that you don’t have to drink freezing water. Use only good quality bottle with no leakage otherwise you know it……

6. Wear A Warm Skull Cap:

We lose heat from our heads. It’s not an old wives’ tale; wear a hat to keep your feet warm.

7. Keep Your Nose And Mouth Outside:

Don’t put your nose and mouth into your sleeping bag. Moisture from breathing will make the bag and your clothing damp. A well-designed mummy style sleeping bag will allow you to close the bag so only your nose and mouth are exposed.

8. Keep Off The Ground:

Sleeping warm suggests that insulating you from the bottom. A decent insulating pad is vital it gives much needed insulation from snow beneath the tent or from cold surface.

9. Sleeping Bag Socks :

If you get cold feet try keeping a enthusiastic pair of thick, loose swindle or wool socks worn only in the resting bag.

10. Shake Up Your Bag

Whatever type of insulation is in your sleeping bag it will be compacted from packing. Do a good job of shaking and redistribute the filling before you get in the bag

How to prepare for Trek in the Himalayas

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 668 2

A few steps to prepare yourself for a high altitude trek in the Himalayas…

How to prepare for trek is first question which arises when you think of trek in himalayas  then you must prepare yourself well because most of the treks in Himalayas involved high altitude trekking. Strong physical fitness is must for a trek in the Himalayas. To prepare for the trek you need to work on three major areas and they are

1.    Cardiovascular Endurance (Aerobic Training)
2.    Strength Endurance (Strength Conditioning) and
3.    Trekking Specific Training

We suggest you to book your trek 2 months in advance so that it gives you ample amount of time to prepare for the trek.

Step 1: Building cardiovascular endurance

You can train yourself to run 4 kms in 30 minutes as per the schedule given below. Remember always start your training program with stretching and warm up exercises.

Follow this training schedule for trekking fitness required. Running or Jogging is best for Fitness endurance

Week 1: Start with 10 minute of brisk walk and then jog for 10 minutes and finally 10 minutes of easy walk.

Week 2: 5 minutes of brisk walk 15 minutes of jog 5 minutes of easy walk Week 3: 5 minutes of brisk walk 20 minutes of jog 5 minutes of easy walk Week 4: 5 minutes of brisk walk and jog for 30 min and cool down your body

Step 2: Building Strength Endurance

Do your strength exercises 2-3 times per week and you should see an evident improvement. Include exercises which improves quadriceps for descents; the hips for supporting pack weight over variable terrain; the shoulders, upper back, and trapezius for carrying backpack and the lower back and abdominals for transferring power from the legs into forward propulsion.

You can choose set of exercise with the help of a physical trainer of your local gym.

 Step 3: Trekking specific training

Include at least one activity per week in your trekking training program as per your convenience.

1. Hike Steep Hills

Hiking hills in your surrounding area will help in building your leg strength which is the key for your trek. Hiking steep hills also help in learning how to balance on uneven paths.

2. Practice with Loaded Backpack

During the trek in the Himalayas you will trek with your backpack and carrying essential items, so your backpack is an important tool for the trek. Look for Backpack with adjustable chest and waist straps so that you can adjust it according to your comfort and practicing with loaded backpack helps a lot.

3. Staying Hydrated

When you are high in the Himalayas the weather is cold and dry so you loose moisture with every breath you take in addition to sweating because of the trek. Running low on fluids diminishes your endurance, contributes to fatigue, and makes you more susceptible to getting altitude illness. So develop a habit of drinking lot of water.
