Travel Gear Checklist

You can opt for a trek or package tour or mountaineering holiday depending on your experience and fitness. According to our past experience, the temperature drops by 5-6 degrees Celsius at an altitude of 1000 meters. This is an approximate temperature up and down direction only and should not be relied upon. Try to find as many detailed weather forecasts as possible for the travel area. Here are some tips to help you figure out if the weather is going to be dangerous.

(a) If you see clouds moving very fast, it indicates high wind speed and it indicates possible climate change.

(b) If you notice a change in the color of the sky, the heavy accumulation of clouds usually indicates that it will rain.

(c) If you observe, snow-covered peaks show high wind activity by showing holes in the snow falling from the top of the peaks.
