Rupin Pass- a High Altitude Trek

More Details on:

Himankan-2015 is a high altitude trekking expedition to Rupin Pass organized by Chakram Hikers, Mulund. 
Rupin Pass is a high altitude pass across the Himalaya mountain range in state of Himachal Pradesh, India. It lies on a traditional shepherd and hiking route which starts from Dhaula in Uttarakhand and ends in Sangla in Himachal Pradesh.

This high altitude trek requires prior trekking experience in Himalayas. You will experience various aspects of trekking during Himankan-2015 like a gentle walk on a plateau, a steep ascent, and walk through the forest. But rest assured there is nothing to worry! You will be supported by Chakram Hiker’s skilled leadership and able management and above all your confidence and tenacity.

What you should do now?
What should be your first step after going through this brochure? Simple….fill in the application form (Available on web site also) and enroll yourself. And yes…. Start jogging practice.
A get together of all the participants of the Himankan-2015 will be held at Mulund on 10th May, 2015 at 18.00 (The venue of the get together will be conveyed later).
And now some general idea about clothing…
Dressing in layers is the mantra. Two T-shirts worn one over the other is warmer than a T shirt that is thick. This is just a guideline. Mileage varies based on your physical condition, threshold to cold etc. If you are prone to cold, carry an extra sweater.
