FAQ

What is Trekking?

Trekking means a journey to be undertaken on foot in areas where motorized transport is generally not available. Trekking always refers to walking on trails; it does not entail cross-country scrambling. Trekking is not mountaineering but just days of walking. Unlike hiking which can be very strenuous, trekking is only for pleasure and exercise, although at times it can certainly challenge one’s fitness.

What is Mountaineering?

Wikipedia defines mountaineering as “Mountaineering or mountain climbing is the sport, hobby or profession of hiking, skiing, and climbing mountains. While mountaineering began as attempts to reach the highest point of unclimbed big mountains it has branched into specializations that address different aspects of the mountain and consists of three areas: rock-craft, snow-craft and skiing, depending on whether the route chosen is over rock, snow or ice. All require experience, athletic ability, and technical knowledge to maintain safety.”

What is Rappelling?

Wikipedia defines Rappelling as, “rappelling, is the controlled descent down a rock face using a rope. Climbers use this technique when a cliff or slope is too steep and/or dangerous to descend without protection. Many climbers use this technique to protect established anchors from damage. Rope access technicians also use this as a method to access difficult-to-reach areas from above for various industrial applications like maintenance, construction, inspection and welding. Rescue teams are also known for using this method as a way to access injured or stranded victims.”

What is Rock Climbing?

Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling. To successfully complete a climb, one must return to the base of the route safely.

I have not trekked before, is it ok if I start now?

Yes, you can join any 1 or 2 days trek provided you are physically fit. If you have a will to walk with a backpack in wilderness and are physically healthy, you can trek happily. We recommend a regular walk of 4/5 kms.

Are Adventure Activities safe?

All Adventure Activities are risky and proper precaution and care is needed all the time.  There are different risks involved like ignorance, carelessness while walking, bee stings, snake bites, High Altitude Sickness (in case of Himalayan Treks).

How to choose your shoe?

When it comes to choosing the correct Hiking Boots, you should always have a few goals in mind: you want your boots to be as light and comfortable as possible while keeping your feet dry, warm, and well-protected. Especially if you are new to Hiking, you should go for Hiking Boot that gives good support while your feet, ankles, achilles' tendon, calves, and legs get used to the added strain of Hiking.

We recommend, Action Trekking or Quechua shoes.
