Fitness Required for Rupin Pass Trek

At high altitude as the air gets thinner oxygen becomes less abundant.The percentage saturation of hemoglobin with oxygen determines the content of oxygen in our blood. After the human body reaches around 2,100 m (7,000 feet) above sea level, the level of oxygen in our hemoglobin begins to plummet. However, the human body has both short-term and long-term adaptations to altitude that allow it to partially compensate for the lack of oxygen.

The Rupin Pass Trek is an easy trek suitable for first time trekker with basic fitness

Trekking Experience: Ideal trek for a beginner.
Fitness Required: The Valley of Flowers Trek falls in the category of Moderate treks. The trail is fairly laid out path and has very few steep ascends or descends. Water is available through out the trail. But still if you are thinking of your first big Himalayan trekking experience its better to be prepared. Here is the training schedule to prepare for the trek.

These points should not be avoided

  • Temperature and climatic conditions vary significantly vis-à-vis those in the plains. Ample time must be given to acclimatization.
  • The trek may turn out to be very hard for first timers. So, heed to the instructions given by the trek leader.
  • Carry a basic medical & first-aid kit.
  • Always a carry a Valley of Flowers trek map with you.
  • Phones don’t work
  • Avoid the consumption of alcohol or any other intoxicants during the trek.
  • The valley and places enroute are prone to being spoilt by littering. Do Not Litter!

Do’s and Don’ts:

  • We believe in leaving the mountains in a better condition, which is why we follow a no-litter policy on our treks. Each trekker will have to bring back the waste that is created during the trek.
  • Trekking is best enjoyed when you’ve worn comfortable clothes. Try and avoid wearing Jeans, bright colours and heavy apparels as much as possible.
  • A lighter backpack always helps you have a better trek, try and carry just as much as needed.
  • Always be in sight of your trek lead, if you feel the need to stop for any reason at all, please keep the trek lead informed.
  • If you do come across any reptiles, animals or even insects during the trek, please keep your calm and let it patiently pass by. Any kind of noise and panic will scare them as well.
  • Do not venture out into the forest/waterfalls on your own as it may be dangerous.
  • Trekking is a good adventure, having said that, it is our primary responsibility to take good care of ourselves and be compassionate towards fellow trekkers
  • If, at any point, during the trek, you feel uneasy or unwell, please inform the trek lead immediately
  • Tune in to the sounds of nature while on a trek and avoid carrying speakers or playing music during the course of the trek
