I have always been tendentious towards tires as my preferred globetrotting rubbers compared to shoes for getting me to wondrous destinations pronto. Not that I have never trekked, but those were merely weekend trails where destination was within a day's reach and effort was limited to no-prior-fitness-needed regime.
Addicted to bureaucratic like laziness & bliss while sitting in my driving seat on all my previous trips [click to read my previous travelogues while travelling across Himachal, Meghalaya, Sikkim, Spiti, Rajasthan], wife had to bribe with the promise of riotous adventure and unparalleled terrains to urge the traveler within me to jump out of my comfort zone.
Indiahikes is a pioneer in organizing treks with impeccable track & trek record of superb camping arrangements along with prioritizing safety. So we found no qualms in registering with them for our first high-altitude trek.
