The fitter you are the more you'll take away from the experience. Take as much time as you can for cardio exercise and strength training, including core strength. This will make it far easier for you to trek and explore the terrain with your guide. Moreover, exercises aid in acclimatization for the trip. Experience of walking for long distances with heavy weights (at least 15 Kg) will be a useful preparation.

I am a first timer. Can I go for trek Rupin Pass?
This is not a trek recommended for first timers. If you are confident enough and physically fit, you may still consider. Recommended good treks for first timers are Hampta Pass Trek and Kuari Pass Trek.

What are the clothing and equipments which I should carry at my end?
Make sure to carry warm and comfortable clothing as temperature can drop, pack good quality trekking shoes, slippers and extra pair of socks. It’s advisable to carry sunscreen lotion or any other skin moisturisers as the sun at the top can be harsh. Water bottles and energy bars/snacks are advisable. A Flashlight (with spare batteries) will help once the sun goes down and it’s always smart to carry insect repellent and emergency medical kit.

Which type of shoes should I carry?
Good quality and sturdy trekking shoes that cover your ankles. Refrain from using sport shoes for your own safety and the trails are uneven and tricky hence requiring good grip trekking shoes. If you are buying new shoes for your trek, please remember to use them for at least a month before you commence your holiday.

How much weight will I have to carry? Will porters be provided?

What kind of food will be provided during this trek? What about safe drinking water?
You will be served Indian vegetarian food and during this trek. Himalayan water is considered a clean and mineral water but to be on the safe side you will get boiled water with chlorine tablets.

Can we have alcohol if it's really cold during the trek?
One of the best things to keep your body warm while out on a trek is to have a rum or brandy. NO, IT IS A MYTH. No alcohol gives you body warmth. In fact contrary to this alcohol makes your body turn cold, internally. Alcohol consumption during trek can lead to AMS that is Acute Mountain sickness and Hypothermia. Both these can prove to be fatal when on a trek as lengthy as Rupin pass. So strictly avoid ALCOHOL.

In Dhaula you have a full range of your cell phones but with each passing altitude, the network stick on your cell phone will start to dip. You will have no network from 2nd day onwards if you are lucky enough you may get BSNL networks but that is also monetary.

Initially, for first two days, you can expect to cover 7 -9 Km than 3rd to the 6th-day average distance covered will be 6-8 Km and on last two days it's 70-12 Km.

How many days does this trek require?

Rupin pass trek starts in Uttrakhand and ends in Himachal Pradesh. Thus the minimum time for this trek is 8 days. Justification to that is on average not more than 7 Km trek can be done. But do remember it’s like heaven paradise from Dhauala to Sangla. The 8 days journey will be incorporated in your minds for your life.

What will we see during this trek?
