Veena World Treks And Hikes Frequently Asked Questions
We help you prepare for your trip and ensure an effortless and enjoyable travel experience.
Hiking is a long walk on trails and is easy. Trekking is a long uphill journey on foot that could last several days and hence is difficult and likely to be tiring. Mountaineering is a sport/activity of climbing mountains that requires special equipment, skills and training.
The idea of a Trek maybe intimidating to many people as it involves risks and challenges. Having said that, anyone who is physically fit and mentally prepared can participate in a trekking expedition. Around 75% of our trekkers are beginners, yet they do it comfortably. Once you book, we provide you guidance about how to prepare for the trek and once it begins, our Tour Manager is with you throughout and there are local experts at every level.
Every mountain range has various trek routes at different gradients and altitudes. Everyone cannot participate in all types of treks as it depends on the fitness level of the person and the difficulty level of the trek. Therefore, you should study the difficulty level / rating of the treks and choose the one that is best suited to your fitness standards. Trek ratings / difficulty levels are based on the pace at which the trek is to be completed, highest altitude on the trek, altitude at which trekking is done each day, number of trekking hours per day, gradient / terrain / climate / temperature on the trek etc. Based on these factors, treks are classified as Easy (Level 1), Moderate (Level 2), Difficult (Level 3). Easy (level 1) – ‘Easy’ indicates that one is able to walk with their back pack for 2-3 hours with occasional breaks. Hence, it is expected to be suitable for everyone. The terrain on such treks is only slightly uneven and they are at relatively lower elevations. These treks are ideal for beginners. Moderate (Level 2) – ‘Moderate’ level treks typically involve 4-6 hours of hiking per day while always carrying a backpack and there is an ascent of 1000-2000 feet each day. Previous experience of trekking and good physical condition are required for ‘Moderate’ level treks. Difficult (Level 3) – ‘Difficult’ level treks typically involve 6-8 hours of hiking per day while always carrying a backpack and there is an ascent of 2000-3000 feet each day. These are recommended for regular trekkers who have excellent hiking skills and are in great physical shape.
Trekking expeditions are specially designed for physically fit travellers / trekkers in the age group of 15-55 years.
There will be 20 – 25 travellers in one trekking expedition.
The trekking expedition will be guided by both, Veena World Tour Manager and an expert local trek leader.
It is common to have altitude sickness during a trek as we are new to such heights and our bodies may not get adjusted immediately. Nausea, vomiting, headaches, lack of appetite, exhaustion, muscle aches, rapid pulse even at rest and insomnia are some of the symptoms of altitude sickness. We should anticipate these and be calm, maintain a slow and steady pace, drink water at regular intervals, keep away from smoking & consuming alcohol and avoid having heavy food and sleeping pills.
Fitness levels differ from person to person and is therefore difficult to judge if one is fit for a particular trekking expedition. Just as an indicator, we can say that if you can jog or run 5 KM in half hour or walk continuously for 10 KM (with 3-4 short breaks) and if you can hold your breath for 30-40 seconds you can be a trekker. Having said that, you should consult a medical practitioner to check your fitness levels before joining a trekking expedition.
If you have already done mountain treks in the recent past and if your medical practitioner has confirmed that your fitness levels are good enough, you can join the trek. For beginners who wish to join the trek it is necessary that s/he undergoes a check-up from a medical practitioner; some treks may require a medical certificate to be carried with you which shall be mentioned in the itinerary. Also ensure that you have a regular practice of walking, jogging, running and breath control exercises.
We make the best use of natural daylight on trek. Your day starts bright and early with bed tea/coffee followed by time to get ready for the trek. After breakfast we start our daily trek and depending on the itinerary we will come back to the campsite for lunch or have a packed lunch en-route. Depending on the trek, we will enjoy some fun filled activities at the campsite in the evening. After dinner we recommend everyone to hit the bed early and get a good night’s rest for the next day.

Best Practices for Trekking & Hiking Trips in India
Need assistance? Let us guide you through your trekking expedition and help you have an amazing experience in the outdoors that is enjoyable and fulfilling. Here is a step-by-step handbook: -
Before you head out, you need to plan a trekking trip in India realistically considering your preferences and needs. Start by deciding how much time you want to spend in the outdoors, a day, few days, a week or even more. The duration of your venture will decide what and how much gear or equipment you will need.
Are you interested in an easy walk in the outdoors over a day or two, or a trek that would involve covering undefined trails, rocks and more with the help of a compass and map. Next, decide on the difficulty level, easy, moderate or demanding. A high difficulty level trek might not suit beginners the best.
Make a list of everything you might need on a trek/hike and then start to collect them. A pair of good quality, high-altitude trekking shoes that are sturdy, have good grip, have ankle support and can handle snow. A backpack with high capacity, usually 50-60 litres, good hip support, shoulder support and one that has quick access pockets. The right clothes, combinations of which can withstand both warmer and chilly temperatures as well as rains. Caps, socks, gloves etc. are also advisable to carry when going on a trekking tour package.
Accessories can include a trekking pole, toilet kit, cutlery kit, personal medical kit, important documents and more.
Carry only the absolute essentials so that you do not get tired easily. A heavy backpack will slow you down. Always move with the group and try not to get left behind. Take baby steps climbing uphill to conserve stamina. Keep yourself hydrated and well-fed.
Lastly, while on your trekking and hiking package, do not forget to just leave behind all your worries and get lost in the mesmerising wild nature. Pay focus on everything you do so that you do not leave behind a negative footprint and enjoy socialising with your group mates.
