Friendship Peak Expedition (5300 mts.)

Reigning at a starting altitude of 5300 meters, Friendship Peak is a towering mountain huddled in the Pir Panjal range of mountains in Himachal Pradesh. One of the most daunting treks in India, the trek does not require rigorous mountaineering techniques, but demands commendable fitness. The strenuous climb rewards you with unparalleled views of the surrounding peaks like Shitidhar, Deo Tibba, Hanuman Tibba and the Dhauladhar ranges, along with their striking reflections in the glacial surface of Beas Kund. The trail emerges from Solang, and twists through classic alpine meadows, verdant forests and rocky terrains laden with scree and moraine. The summit climb pushed you through some seriously steep inclines and narrow ridges, but the sweeping view from the top overpowers everything else!

Why to avoid consumption of alcohol and smoking on high altitude treks?

There’s a reason that alcohol and smoking on high altitude treks carry restrictions. Beyond the concerns of discipline, it has more to do with your health. Given the noticeably lower levels of oxygen in the air, your body is under a lot to pressure to regulate the oxygen supply. Low oxygen means that proper acclimatization is vital. One of the major contributors to proper acclimatization is water intake. When you indulge in alcohol, you’re inviting risks of AMS, HAPE and HACE. Not only will they hinder your trek, but can also prove fatal in prolonged situations. The same is true of smoking. Read More.
