everyone does their bit

The expedition starts with an acclimatisation trek where you learn to pitch tents, set up a campsite and understand the principles of LNT (leave no trace). Trekkers carry their own backpacks and share the load of supplies that would be needed in the course of the journey. Everyone pitches in and learns to share responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, firewood collection and resource management.

fitness requirements

This program might be more demanding than the usual physical activities you’re used to.
