Malana Village – The quaint Village of Himachal Pradesh

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 284 0

Malana Village – The Quaint Village

Malana is an ancient village in the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh, located at an altitude of 2652 m, tucked in the Kullu valley. Malana village in the Malana Nala, a side valley of the Parvati valley, is isolated from the rest of the world.

There are various theories regarding the origin of the village. One states that Jamlu rishi stayed here and made the rules and regulations. It is said to be one of the oldest democracies in the world, with its own parliamentary system which was guided by Jamlu rishi. The residents of Malana are said to be descendants of Aryans and Jamlu is said to be worshipped in the Pre­ Aryan times. The residents of the village gained their independence during the Mughal Empire when Emperor Akbar walked into the village to cure an ailment he was suffering from. After being successfully cured, he declared that the residents of the valley would never have to pay tax.

Another theory suggests that the village was found by remnants of Alexander the Great’s army.

The villagers speak Kanashi/Raksh, which is only understood by the villagers. It seems to be a mix of Sanskrit and other Tibetan dialects. The village is thought to be the oldest republic in the world and has a democratic village administration. The people in Malana think of non-Malani to be inferior, and when one visits the village, one should be careful to stick to prescribed paths and not touch any of people, walls or houses there. If such an incident does occur, one has to pay a fine which will cover the slaughter of a lamb to be sacrificed to purify the impure object.

Things to do in Malana Village

The trekking route to Malana Village begins in Manali, and is 21 km long, passing through Naggar and Rumsu to Naurya Tapru, below the Chanderkheni Pass. One can also see the Hanuman Tibba and Dhaula Dhar Ranges on the way before entering the village with its strict customs and social structure.

10 Golden Rules of Trekking in Himalayas

Posted By : Jai Govind Meena/ 319 1

10 Golden Rules of Trekking in Himalayas

If you’re a beginner to trekking in Himalayas then here are 10 Rules of Trekking in Himalayas or tips that should help you prepare for your first trek! And even if you’re experienced, it’s never too late to brush up on some information.

Trekking Tip 1: Double check everything.

Equipment matters. You don’t want to be out on a hike, and when you need something important, you don’t have it. It can be the difference between life and death. Trekking usually takes place in remote locations, where facilities are scarce, so there’s a good chance you won’t find what you’re looking for.

Even if it is available, why would you want to waste money and buy something you already have?

Rules of Trekking in Himalayas

Trekking Tip 2: If hit by AMS, descend.

This is the most important Rules of Trekking in Himalayas. Himalayan Mountains can be your best friend, but also your worst enemy. Acute Mountain Sickness hits when you don’t acclimatize properly. Presuming you’re past the point of acclimatizing and are already facing symptoms of altitude sickness, the best solution is to descend. While Diamox etc. can help curb the symptoms and effects, removing the cause(high altitude) is the most logical solution.

Trekking Tip 3: Prepare adequately.

This trekking tip or rule for trekking is to be thought over generally trekkers book their trek in advance but do not prepare adequately except shopping. Make sure you’re physically and mentally fit to go for a trek. Fitness can make the difference between making a trek really easy to complete, or really difficult to manage. You don’t want to be left lagging behind!

Trekking Tip 4: Climb high, sleep low.

Once over 3000 meters above sea level, climb slowly, sleeping no more than 300 m higher at the end of each day. Going higher during the day is fine as long as you go down to sleep. It’s a good idea to reach your destination for the day and then go for an acclimatisation walk somewhere high around, thereafter returning to camp.

rules for trekking

Trekking Tip 5: Start early, reach early.

It’s a rule I follow religiously. Early morning usually makes for glorious weather, with astounding views. Plus, if you start by around 5 or 6 AM, there’s a good chance you’ll be at your intended destination by 12 PM or max, 2, just in time for lunch. Plus, the weather usually gets cloudy and rainy post noon, and it’s never fun to trek in that.

Trekking Tip 6: Leave nothing but footprints. Take nothing but photos. Kill nothing but time. Keep nothing but memories.

Global warming is consuming our planet at a rapid pace, and the Himalayas have one of the most fragile ecosystems in the world. Add to all this, the throngs of tourists visiting them each year, and you have at hand a disaster waiting to happen.

In light of all these, it is our prerogative that we keep our ecological footprint to a minimum. We leave them as we would like to find them. We do not harm the flora and fauna. We take away nothing but experiences.

Trekking tips or rule for trekking in Himalayas

Trekking Tip 7: It’s always further than it looks. It’s always taller than it looks. And it’s always harder than it looks.

This one applies to both trekking and mountaineering. If we keep wasting time thinking about how much further the destination is, we make it mentally tiring for ourselves. So it’s best to concentrate on the next step, on the immediate present, and where to put our foot next.

deo tibba trek with renok adventures

Trekking Tip 8: Take care of your feet.

Your legs and feet are your most valuable companion on any trek, and that’s why it’s really important to pay attention to them. Make sure to wear the right socks, and the right number of layers. Break in new shoes before taking them for their first trek. Get comfortable in them. Lace them up to the top to reduce chances twisting your ankle.

Trekking Tip 9: When you reach a destination, set up camp first before anything else.

Before doing anything else, it’s necessary that you pitch your tents first. When you do that, you have a base to function out of, out of which you can organise all other activities like cooking. In the event of unforeseen weather, you have a place to take shelter.

trekking tips for beginners

Trekking Tip 10: “Aur kitni aage hai?/How much further?” is always a bad question to ask, and one we hate answering 😛

We all know “Bas thoda aur/just 10 minutes more” is a blatant lie we tell just to keep you satisfied, so why make us say it 😛 ?

Most importantly, since you won’t find many tourists in the region, it’s a good time to explore Leh-Ladakh at your own pace. Public transport services are also available in May. It’s worth mentioning that internal roads leading to Tso Moriri, Pangong Tso and Nubra Valley remain open, and allow you to explore all kinds of touristy attractions. Once you reach the main city, you won’t come across any major issues.

 

Srinagar to Leh

 

A journey between Srinagar and Leh depends on weather conditions. Technically, the Srinagar – Leh highways remains open for most part of the month. In case you’re planning a road trip to Leh, this route will be the better choice. However, we still recommend taking a flight to Leh and heading on to the other part of your journey via a shared or private taxi.

 

To be on the safer side, it’s better to plan a road trip in the second half of May. Though most of the snow clears up by this time, avalanches in Zojila Pass aren’t uncommon. These can block the road for several days. In order to ensure you aren’t stuck anywhere, it’s good to plan an itinerary carefully, and even better to book a package tour with a service provider.

Manali to Leh

 

The Manali – Leh highway remains closed for most part of the month. Even when roads get cleared, melting snow can cause problems. It’s advised to skip the Manali – Leh route during the month of May. If snow doesn’t get cleared, road conditions can be pretty bad, and you may be stuck for days.

 

In case you want to choose this route in the month of May, it’s better to plan your journey in the last week of the month. You can even plan to reach Leh via Srinagar, and return from the Manali – Leh highway.

 

Leh Ladakh Weather

 

Beginning May, Leh Ladakh temperature begins to rise, and you can expect it to be somewhere between 15 degree celsius and 5 degree celsius. Day time is pleasant and you can cover several attractions on the trip. However, nights can be cold and it’s important to carry thermals and a lot of warm clothes. A Leh Ladakh trip in May isn’t for the faint-hearted, and requires careful planning.

How to reduce Leh Ladakh tour packages cost?

Posted By : Dinkar Kamat/ 490 0

In the last few years, the number of tourists visiting Leh and Ladakh have increased exponentially. Apart from international tourists, even domestic travellers have been visiting this wonderland every year. Most of these people favour the newly constructed accommodation options and local cuisines as part of meal plans. However, people still want to cut costs and save more on Leh Ladakh tour packages cost.

 

Tips to Reduce Leh Ladakh Tour Packages Cost

 

A road trip to Ladakh requires you to spend a good number of days holidaying in this magnificent part of the country. Moreover, difficult road conditions and unforeseen circumstances may increases costs. Therefore, it’s important to look for certain measures to help you reduce costs on even the best Leh Ladakh tour packages. Here are some tips you can use.

 

Leh Ladakh Tour Packages Cost

 

Visit in April, May, August or September – Cutting cost is just one of the numerous advantages of travelling in off-season. During April and May, the season is about to start. In August and September, it ends gracefully. During these months, most hotels and guesthouses are vacant, and welcome tourists with open arms and lower rates.

 

During this period, you’re able to make spot bookings, which reduce costs as compared to pre-booked accommodations. Since most hotels have several rooms available, they are also able to provide extra bedding and other amenities at low costs. Most importantly, less tourists mean you don’t have to wait in queues or be a part of loud gatherings.

 

Stay in a Group – It’s always better to stay in a group while travelling to or in Ladakh. Once you’re in a group, it’s easier to share the cost of accommodation and travel. Moreover, meals start getting cheaper on your pocket. Ladakh Leh tour packages cost somewhere between 25,000 – 35,000. Most of this money is spent on travel and accommodation. You can really save a good amount of money by travelling with people of similar interests.

 

When it comes to commute, a shared taxi costs way less than a private vehicle. It’s also important to consider the number of travellers in the group. For instance, groups over 5 may need to hire an extra taxi, or a separate room. 4-5 people in a group often leads to cost-cutting.

 

Choose the Accommodation and Location Wisely – While travelling in Ladakh and Leh, most of your time will be spent exploring the rugged terrain, beautiful landscapes and popular attractions. You spend more time outside the rooms.

 

Though you should look for something comfortable, there’s no need to book a lavish accommodation only to spend the night to sleep. In addition to this, location plays an important role. Most guesthouses in Spiti and Ladakh are as clean as hotels.

 

Choose Places to Eat Carefully – Eating at local dhabas and restaurants not only allows you to cherish local cuisine, but also helps with cost-cutting. The entire region is known for its mouth-watering delicacies, cooked with fresh farm vegetables. If you like Tibetan-style food, you’ll find several options to eat home-cooked food at reasonable prices. Try to keep a mix of both good restaurants and local eateries to save money while enjoying the best of delicacies.

 

Leh Ladakh tour packages cost a good amount of money. However, with proper planning, you can reduce costs and have the time of your life within a strict budget. Renok Adventures has been taking tours to the region for quite some time. Our experienced guides are not only well-versed with the rugged terrain, but also know about several ways to help you stay within a budget.
