Kuari Pass Winter Trek, unlike all my other trips wasn’t a last moment, hurried plan. The call of the mountains had been heard long before, allowing enough time for leave applications, survey and purchase of equipments and even a decent detoxification. Yet, often, even though one has had enough time to cross-check every item on the check-list, some preparations still remain incomplete.
5’4, 48kg, below BMI, very low tolerance for cold, can manage till 20C, very low tolerance for strangers, migraine prone, hard-core non-vegetarian.
That is what my profile reads like. Yet, I enrolled with Trek The Himalayas (henceforth, referred to as TTH) for an 8-day trek to Rupin Pass, perched at a measly 15250 ft, with a drop in temperature up to -5C.
Any Himalayan trek can never satisfy you. Once you go, you want to go again and again, every year. And I was no exception to this. The next Himalayan trek plan took shape with my colleagues and friends.
