Treks And Hikes Frequently Asked Questions
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.
As per the level (1/2/3) of your trek, you will walk for 4-7 hours at an altitude of 1000-3000 meters. Depending on the gradient of the trek, you will climb 100-350 meters per day.
India is such a diverse country that every month you have an opportunity to go trekking in the mountains. Some of the popular treks are Markha Valley Trek, Dodital Trek, Great Lakes of Kashmir Trek, Bijli Mahadev Trek etc. We generally arrange trekking expeditions as per favourable seasons. In Aug and Sep 2021, we have organised various treks in the Himalayas i.e. in Ladakh, Kashmir, Himachal, Uttarakhand and Sikkim Darjeeling. As the season changes, we will arrange for treks in more regions. You may go through Veena World website for more details.

We provide mineral water bottle or arrange potable water from a nearby stream or source. Every trekker must carry 2 empty water bottles or a water bladder. Local guides will advise you from where to refill the bottles. You may bring water purification tablets as an additional precaution.
We advise our trekkers to be free of phones and gadgets as far as possible as we truly believe that trekking should be experienced in its entirety without disturbances. And that’s why we say, “There is no wifi in the mountains, but you will find a better connection”. At the same time, you can connect with your family and friends while at resorts as many of them have internet facility. In remote areas with poor connectivity, our team will be in touch with the local trek leader and we shall convey the well-being of the guests on trek to their family.
