  • Remember, It's never about the destination, it's always about the mesmerizing journey. 
  • You get to know your abilities and limitations.
  • At times, worrying about hygiene can be given a break. 
  • "High Altitude" can give you "High Attitude" problem.
  • While solo treks are fun and rejuvenating, group treks are fun too, and mostly give you friends for life. 
  • You get to know more the socialising nature of humans. 
  • Even if you are a pro, always keep a trekking pole handy. You never know, when you might have the need of it.
  • For a trek that would last for more than two days, make sure you are carrying two ample sized water bottles.
  • Keep your feet dry by carrying a lot of socks. Wet feet might make you sick and unfit for the rest of the trek.
  • Pack as light as possible. 
  • Having a slight headache is normal at high altitude. Once you reach your destination, after a while all will be okay. Just don't panic.
  • If you are a photo freak, click a few and live the beauty without your mobile phone and camera lens.
  • Slow walking is the key. Don't rush, trekking is not a race that you have to win.
  • Yes, even YOU, can live without electricity. 
  • No matter how tired you feel while trekking, the final destination would take away all your pains.
  • Disconnect yourself from all social networking sites and messengers. You anyway do this all the time back home.
  • While rest is important, don't sleep all the time when taking a stop. You are in the lap of nature, enjoy every second of it. 
  • Bring back thousands of memories in the form of pictures, conversations and more.
