Fitness Requirement:

The interested person should be physically fit but more importantly, this voyage requires mental agility. Riding, trekking and driving in high altitude region leaves a toll on one’s body. Anywhere above 8000 ft, the atmospheric pressure falls drastically and as a result, our body requires more oxygen to reach the blood cells. So, one has to work harder to get more oxygen. But the good news is that one gets acclimatized as one gains the altitude. You should carry your personal medication such as Diamox for necessary precaution and faster acclimatization. Do loads of breathing exercises and train your heart and lungs to cope up with the changing altitude.
