A Typical Day of Trekking

Our typical day of trekking is based on an average level of client physical fitness coupled with the nature of our weather and terrain. This could include very warm days during summer, high passes, and the need to move between campsites which ensure adequate grazing for the ponies.

06:00 Bed tea is served to your tent. A great way to warm up before packing up your gear.

06:30 Hot water is provided for your morning wash.

07:00 Breakfast is served

08:00 Your personal packing is complete and your trail lunch is available to place in your day pack. Your guide will go over the day’s travel plans highlighting those areas along the route you will want to visit.

08:15 Off on the trail with your guide, or with instructions as to the route and where he will meet you if he needs to assist with pony packing (dependant on party size).

12:00 Lunch along the route, often in a meadow or beside a stream. A typical lunch might consist of a sandwich, juice box, cheese, boiled egg, boiled potato, apple, cookies or chocolate bar.

17:00 In camp with a pot of tea after a great day of sights and trekking. The tent is up and you are making notes in your journal and taking photos of the picturesque landscape.

18:30 Supper is served. Time for more tea and, perhaps, an early bed.

Expect to have rather lengthy days of travel with plenty of time to take photos and look at the scenery, visit tea tents or local villages as you pass through. You will have plenty of time in camp each evening to meet with other travelers, compare notes, read a bit, take photographs or visit surrounding villages or sites either before or after your supper is served.
By starting early you will have made substantial progress in the cooler part of the day, and will be able to take your time ascending the passes which can be up to 17,000 feet (5,180 M) on some routes, arriving at your next camp with some reserves of energy for the evening.

A comfortable yet unique journey | Laura Blanco Recommends November 29, 2010
Our stay in Ladakh was a unique experience. I enjoyed the pleasant mix of culture and nature; while walking to secluded and age old Tibetan monastery’s, I often was amazed at the extraordinary scenery. For me, hiking is the best way to get acquainted with a foreign culture. This acquaintance was made even more agreeable because of the good care and reliability of Dreamland Trek & Tour. No worries during this comfortable journey, just walking, experiencing and, in the evening, enjoying a delicious meal, carefully prepared by the accompanying staff>

Unforgettable Family Holiday Trekking with Dreamland Trek & Tour
Magali et Christophe PIRET-GERARD & Family July-Aug 2014
"Nous vous conseillons vivement l'agence "dream ladakh" qui nous ont organisé la totalité de notre voyage familial (2 parents et 4 enfants (de 15 à 22 ans) en Inde (depuis notre arrivée à l'aéroport de New Dehli avec visite de Agra Tasj Mahal et alentours en 2 jours jusqu'à notre retour à l'aéroport de New Dehli) et au Ladakh (15 jours). Ce fut un voyage extra-ordinaire! L'agence est très compétente, ouverte à toute proposition, réactive et rassurante. Avant d'entamer notre trekking Lamarayu-Chilling (1 jour de repos)-Chansumdo (11 jours), nous nous sommes acclimatés 3 jours à Leh. Les 3 jours pleins d'acclimatisation sont essentiels (Leh est à 3.500m d'altitude - prévoir granules COCA en homéopathie, somnifères pour les premières nuits et diamox si nécessaire). Les 3 premiers jours nous avons visité Leh, les monastères aux alentours et avons emprunté le 3ième jour la route la plus haute du monde (point culminant 5.600 m) en voiture (en très bon état) avec d'adorables chauffeurs. Si vous souhaitez de plus amples explications sur les monastères et le boudhisme il peut être intéressant de demander un guide spécifique pour les visites des monastères les explications des moines sur place étant laconiques. Nous avons logé à l'hôtel proposé par dream ladakh qui était très bien (bonne literie) et qui avait l'avantage d'être situé à côté de l'agence (le seul ennui c'est les chiens qui aboient pendant la nuit dans cette partie là de Leh).
Le trekking s'est très bien déroulé pour nous 6 grâce au guide et son assistante (charmants et très compétents). L'excellent cuisinier et son assistant nous ont fait de délicieux repas très sains et variés et fourni tous les jours de la bonne eau de montagne (bouillie pendant plus d'une minute pour tuer toute bactérie).
Les tentes étaient très confortables et le staff très aidant. Des petits chevaux portaient nos bagages et le matériel et étaient menés par de très gentils meneurs ladakhis. Nous avons fait l'ensemble du trekking en 11 jours mais si vous avez un peu plus de temps, nous vous conseillons de le faire en 13 jours afin d'être plus relax et de mieux répartir les heures de marche. Nous avions également demandé qu'un cheval nous accompagne, ce qui a permis à la maman qui manquait de souffle de faire les ascensions à cheval et aux enfants d'être portés lors d'une foulure ou maladie passagère. En bref, ce voyage aventureux nous a permis de voir un pays où vivent des ladakhis charmants et authentiques, ou la nature est intacte et les paysages à couper le souffle. Ce pays nous a tous émerveillé et transformé."





Important Questions :
How long does it take to get acclimatize?
Abruptly going to a height of 3500 m, one naturally feels a difference. Your body reacts and behaves differently in rarified air at high altitude. What you need to do is just take it easy and give some time to your body to adjust in to less oxygen (hypoxia) by a slow physiological process called Acclimatization. Time taken for acclimatization varies from person to person; usually you nee atleast 2-3 days in order get well acclimatized and you need to take complete rest for the 1st day even if you are feeling fine. Drink plenty of fluids at least 3-4 litres. Diet should be high in carbohydrates, less oily and predominantly vegetarian. Avoid excess of alcohol and tobacco in any form.

Why are some treks more expensive than others?
If we have to organize a trek near Leh than it's less expensive for transportation and same is for the pack horses as we have to send them to the starting point. Even after finishing the trek we have to pay for the horses for reaching Leh. That's why there are different rates for different trek routes.

Who carries the things/gears and food during the trek?
In Ladakh normally you have to trek around the height of 4000mts and the passes are around 5000mts so its very difficult to carry heavy loads at this height, that's why we provide pack horses/ponies they will carry everything, trekkers will have to carry only the pack lunch, water, camera, note book, and some delicate things which they don't want keep with the horses.

What we do with the garbage that are produced during the trek?
We are very keen to keep Ladakh clean, that's why we strictly instruct our staff to bring back all the garbages produced during the trek.

What about the temperature (maximum and minimum) during the trekking season?
The average temperatures in the trekking routes during the trekking season are as under:
May................. (Max 15*C & Min -3*C)
June................ (Max 25*C & Min 6*C)
July................. (Max 30*C & Min 10*C)
August ............ (Max 27*C & Min 8*C)
September...... (Max 15*C & Min -2*C)
October........... (Max 8*C & Min -8*C)

How we look after your health while trekking?
Our guides are careful to prepare your meals with your enjoyment in mind. Typically these plentiful meals will be primarily vegetarian in nature with some meat or protein in the form of canned fish or tofu. This is typical of the Ladakhi diet in general. Our guides are encouraged to use hand sanitizers such as alcohol based gels prior to food preparation. You are encouraged to do the same. Dishes are typically stainless steel bowls and pans and are cleaned after meals with scrub pads and soap. Our staff will provide rehydrating liquids in large quantities throughout your trek. Take advantage of tea, coffee, juice and water whenever you can. At altitude it is natural not to feel much hunger or thirst. Make sure you stay adequately fed and drank plenty of fluids both at meals and along the trail. During summer, heat can be a real factor requiring significant intake of liquids while you trek. So always carry 2 liters of water with you.
Our guides will make every effort to pace your day so you are not pushed to your physical limits. This means you will be getting up and away in good time so your day will allow a consistent but moderate pace.
If you have any pre-existing medical conditions such as asthma or other chronic illness it would be wise to let Dreamland Trek and Tour know of this condition prior to leaving Leh. This way your guide will understand that you have medication along with you should someone other than yourself have to administer the drugs.
Preparation for altitude during the trek is vital. Acclimatize in Leh prior to departure on your trek. Take at least 4 days doing tours or other easy to moderate physical activity prior to beginning your trek. If possible start low and go slowly for the first few days of your trek. Some routes will not allow this, so acclimatization is even more important in these cases.
Prior to your trek meet with your doctor and discuss your overall physical condition and your doctor's recommendation for high altitude medication. You may also wish to discuss treatment and medication for traveler's diarrhea as you experience new foods and bacterial environments.
With these simple ideas in mind, your trekking experience will be most enjoyable for you and other travelers along the way.

What do we do if someone is sick or injured during the trek?
During the trek our guides will make every effort to pace your day so you are not pushed to your physical limits. This means you will be getting up and away in good time so your day will allow a consistent but moderate pace. And in case it hits a member of the tour then our assistant guide will immediately bring him/her down asap. He will use the ponies to ride for the sick person in the mean time he will inform us through a satellite phone (now we have satellite phone in almost every remote villages of Ladakh) and we will soon send a jeep to bring her/him to the hospital in Leh.

Rescue in Emergency:
In case if someone is critically sick or injured and requires helicopter evacuation, this can be done with the cooperation of JK Tourism Department & Indian Airforce as long as you have the insurance to cover this so it would be useful to let us know which insurance.
