With high altitude treks it becomes important that you become aware of the geography around you. Proceed towards Juda-ka-Talab a frozen lake at 9500 ft.It takes 4 hours to reach the campsite besides the lake. The trail to the campsite is equally engaging and beautiful as the campsite itself. As you ascent the you pass through the oak, pine forest, streams flowing down from the high mountains and the sounds of gurgling water is enough to rejuvenate your spirits. After walking for around 4 hours and 4 km in total you reach a opening with a pristine freshwater lake on your left and camps tented on your right. Overnight here at the campsite and indulge in the surroundings.
4 hours Camping

The trail takes you through densely populated pine and oak forest and open meadows, which mostly might be covered in fresh snow if you decide to trek in winters. It takes you 4 km and and a rise in altitude of somewhere around 2500ft. to reach the base camp.Trekking in these sublime locations makes you feel disconnected from the hustle of the city life and lets you connect with what life is when you are asked to survive in these dreadful conditions. During your trail don't forget to miss out on the shepherd huts, who live a sustainable life in these regions. Approximately in 3 hours you reach the base camp.This is where your cameras get busy. The himalayas open up like a huge arc forming a 180 degree panoramic view. Bandarpoonch, Swargarohini, Kala Nag and Ranglana stand tall infront of your eyes it takes you a moment to believe that you’ve been stupid to actually ignore such vacation for all these years. Pat on your back for an intelligent decision. Camp overnight under a blanket of stars, with shooting stars making streaks across the sky wishing you goodnight.
Camping
Begin your day 4 of the expedition with a fresh tea, breakfast and a sunrise to pump in more adrenaline into your nervous system.The sunrise is beautiful and the snow sparkles to as far as the eyes can see.Don’t wait too long for the euphoria to settle down.Start your journey to the peak.The trail to the summit is gentle through a small patch of oak trees.A few feet short of the summit,spot a temple with lord Ganesh, Shiva and Parvathi idols being cozily installed.Spend some time at the summit and descend back to the base camp by noon for lunch.Post Lunch Descent down for Hargaon Camp.The trail is a gentle descent and takes you through the pine forest.

Other Practical Information

Backpack offloading: Eccentric Travels expects trekkers to carry their own backpacks -- which contains clothes, warm gears, toilet kits etc. Camping gears like tents/sleeping bags is carried by Eccentric Travels support team. If for some reason you do not want to carry your backpack, you can offload the same by paying an additional charge.Partial offloading is not allowed. Charges vary for offloading on arrival at the base camp. Also, offloading on arrival may be refused if sufficient man/animal power is not available. Your offloaded backpack cannot weigh more than 9 kgs. No suitcases/strolleys/duffel bags are allowed for offloading.

1- This Trek is an high altitude expedition and involves risk. Each individual will have to sign an indemnity form before joining the expedition.

2- Every Traveller bears the responsibility of carrying his/her Luggage. There is no personal porter assigned to carry your luggage. However if you wish to add a porter to your itinerary a charge of 400 / per day per porter will be levied.

3- Since the treks take you to most arduous regions of the country, please keep in mind that you will not be provided with luxury facilities. Though we promise to keep everything hygienic , but a luxury cannot be promised at our ends.

4- Since its a high altitude expedition , you will not have access to Hot water for bathing and washing your organs on trek days. Due to low availability of wood its practically impossible to provide you hot water for such purpose. Since it will be cold during trek days, you would be provided with hot water to drink.

5-Please note, due to lack of huge accommodation issues in these regions there may be times that we accommodate 3 people in one room.

6- Once you agree to join the expedition, discipline is must and you will have to agree to the rules and regulation set by Eccentric Travels private Limited. Any behaviour which leads to delay or non agreement can lead to termination of traveller.

7-Group discount is a company policy and can result to different pricing for different travellers. Though the pricing difference is marginal. Eccentric Travel’s private limited has full right to offer discounted pricing to travellers coming in group and to fill up the seats at the last minute. Any kind of discussion on this matter will not be undertaken and will not be justified.

8-There may be delays in food at times because of the movable camps and logic that the support staff walks with you to the next campsite. Please make up your mind for the same.

09- The food provided to you is veg + egg during all days of trek. The meals are designed to provide you with enough nutrition for the trek. Hygiene is a priority and will not be compromised with, however the taste is subjective. Please also note that there may be times you are provided with Rice in two meals simultaneously. Bear with it. It is because of the arduous conditions and not because of our incapabilities.

10- Bonfire at this altitude feels a necessity. However the more higher you ascend the lesser the availability of wood. Above 9000 ft. the tree line ends and all you have is grass and shrubs. Bonfire will be subject to availability of wood and permits from the local authorities.

11- Emergency during trek: In a trek a medical emergency or any other emergency may arise. If for any reason you are sent down from the trek then Eccentric Travels will make arrangements for your return to the base camp or nearest road head. A staff will accompany you. He may not be a trained personnel.

12- Evacuation or dealing with emergencies is extremely difficult in the mountains. It is time consuming as well. A normal trek of 2 hours may take 6 hours in an emergency (a sick person is not easy to evacuate). Doctors do not go along with a team. Doctors are not available at the base camp or nearest road head either. Eccentric Travels trek leaders are trained to administer first aid and know how to deal with issues related to the mountains. However, they are not doctors.

13- Registering for this trek is an understanding that you have read up on the difficulties of high altitude trekking and understand the risks. You have also understood what AMS, HAPE and HACE are. You have taken efforts to educate yourself and you are in a position to manage your own altitude related emergency.

CancellationFree cancellation up to 45 days prior departure. No refund applicable within 45 days of departure.
