The average daily temperature will be 10 degrees centigrade, however, the intense sun at higher elevation can make it feel even hotter.

FITNESS:
This is considered as a moderate trek, therefore, no specific level of fitness is required.  All those people can join this tour/trek if they think themselves fit and have strong will power. People suffering from cardiac or respiratory problems should consult with their doctor. Morning and evening walk, jogging, stretching, meditation and regular exercise make the journey comfortable for all.
ALTITUDE SICKNESS:
Altitude sickness can effect anyone who gain the elevation too rapidly without proper acclimatization.  We advise to read any book on trekking that has a chapter on this and also consult your doctor before you leave for the trip. Please note that Diamox has to be taken by all participants as a precaution measure. Our advice: Drink at least 4 litters of water a day, do not exhaust yourself so much, breathe deep and take more rest than usual. The level of Oxygen become thinner at higher elevation. The inclement weather and high altitude induces certain illness generally not encountered over the plains. Headache, nausea, lassitude, lethargy, breathlessness, general uneasiness [malaise], high irritability, light loss of balance, disorientation, incoherence and insomnia are a few. It is common to all irrespective of the age, sex and physical fitness. Gradual acclimatization is the best answer. Some of symptoms indicate that the body mechanism is readjusting to new environments.
The best idea is deliberately slow down all the activities and observe the following rules: 
  • Rest and relax or do not exert, be excited.
  • Keep talking in low voice or observe silence with a smile.
  • Walk slowly – set one-third of your usual pace.
  • Keep your daypack light.
  • Stop every 20 minutes and take short rest.
  • Whenever you feel uncomfortable, just stop; rest and relax.
  • Ignore the sudden outbursts of fellow trekkers and avoid arguments.
  • Never go too high and too fast.
  • Avoid smoking, alcohol, drugs, and intoxicants.
  • Consume plenty of fluid; never keep your stomach empty.
  • Chant or visualize everything around to suit your pleasant thoughts or put on the earphones and listen to your favorite music. 
  • Be careful not to catch a cold. It is better to be over clothed than under protected. En-route avoid taking bath or drinking water straight from lake, stream or river as your system is not conditioned for this. 
  • Keep your boots/Ked inside. Protect yourself against dust and direct sunshine during the long stretches of driving. Face, feet, and hands must be well protected.
