Guidelines / Instructions –
# It is preferable that the members of a trekking group keep same level of physical fitness. If someone falls behind due to lack of physical fitness, etc, it is the responsibility of the entire group to ensure that the person is somehow brought to the camp or base.
# Be independent. Carry one’s own pack. Pack should not exceed 15 kg.
# The trekking should be planned in advance along with the work out of the pace of the trek from point to point. This will enable reaching the destination well before dark, as trekking is dangerous after sunset.
# Carry water containers. Fill many bottles with drinking water. Expect some fresh water brooks. You may boil the water for consumption. It works out well. But, be careful in analyzing the brook. Look around for live healthy insects/fish to confirm if the water is consumable. Healthy insects means the water is consumable.
# Do not leave the fire that you setup unattended. Put the fire off in the end. Clear the fire area off the dry twigs and grass.
# It is expected that the trekkers behave civilly, show respect and cooperate with each other
