SAFETY MATTERS!

Safety Measures

Safety Measures

Don’t you love the idea of trekking in the rainy season? The cool breeze, lush green hills, gushing waterfalls and the sun playing hide-n-seek with clouds. Often, we get carried away with the natural beauty and tend to overlook our own safety. Keep these points in mind so that your next adventure is all about fun!

The Muck
Yes, if not for this, rains would have been pure bliss. But it’s not, especially after you slip and fall on all fours. To avoid this, wear shoes with a good grip and don’t get tempted to run in the rain like they do in Bollywood movies. Other than loose soil, also avoid stepping on moss-covered stones. They are extremely slippery while stones under running water aren’t.

The Bag
Everything is going to be wet but see that your extra pair of clothes, money, food, camera, phone etc doesn’t get damp. Just put them in separate polythenes while packing even if your bag is waterproof. This will protect them from your wet hands and also help you sort out the contents faster on the trek.

The Route
Know where you’re going. Hire a guide if possible. If not, talk to people at the base village to get a basic idea of your route to the top. With falling trees and flowing water, there are chances your trail got washed away too.

The Insects
Be prepared to meet irritant bugs, mosquitoes or hungry leech as they thrive in this season. Keep repellents handy. To get rid of leech, use salt or spray deodorant. It works like magic!

The Note
Always leave a note behind stating your location and likely time of return. Keep your family and friends informed. Weather can get tricky during monsoons and we all know how our mobile network connections are!

Photography

We understand you want to capture each and every bit of your monsoon trek, but do keep the time restrictions in mind. Do not stray away from the group while clicking pictures, always be with your group and take pictures whenever the leader announces photography break. Also, protect your camera as well as mobile phone while doing the same.

No edge Photography please

You’ve seen number of trekkers clicking pictures at the top of a huge boulder and those images might have got 1000 of Likes, but that doesn’t mean it’s a safe thing to do. During monsoon there is lack of visibility and the mud is quite slippery, so do not click pictures at the edge of the mountain, its completely unsafe.

River Stream Gushes..

Yeah, the moment you see a river stream you get simply get into the stream without knowing the depth and water flow. This could be risky, as you might flow away with the forceful water gushes and end up hurting yourself. Always consult your lead before getting into any lake, pond, water stream or river body.

Trekking isn’t a Marathon

It’s not a race!! No medal rewards are given to first reachers. Enjoy every bit of your trek and always move with your Trikon buddies. Never leave your group behind and stay ahead of everyone. Be at a descent pace and help other trekkers to reach the end point.

Do not haste others

You might be an avid trekker and can trek amazingly well through tough terrains, but not everybody is the same. So avoid pushing or hasting fellow trekkers, as they might slip and get injured. A recent incident at Harihar trek is a great learning, where a trekker lost balance while hastily descending and ended up fracturing her leg. Thanks to prompt decisions and co operation from local villagers who got her down safely.

Get insured

Get an Adventure Insurance yourself so as to cover the possible risks that take place while undertaking adventure activities. After all, Precaution is better than cure.

Just these basic ideas will go a long way to keep you away from trouble or any nasty surprises on the trek. Like our page for more such articles.

5 Tips for Trekking during PERIODS

5 Tips for Trekking during PERIODS

Why it’s perfectly okay to trek during menstruation !

Planned for the perfect trek, excited and all set to hit the mountains! But, wait! Your trekking dates clash with your periods? What a nightmare! Is it safe to trek during periods? How to avoid messing up clothes? How to dispose off used sanitary napkins? Here are the answers to all your questions. Read till the end to find out how to deal with such situations and head to the mountains instead of staying back.

Periods are part of routine. But trust me those five days mean stress, cramps, mood swings, bleeding and what not! All those claims of “staying fresh and dry” in ads don’t keep you from checking every now and then. It’s high time we speak about this openly and discuss how to deal with it. Especially for trekkers, who would love to be in mountains at any day of the month, it’s a serious concern and never fails to interfere with our decisions to sign up for a trek. After all, when mountains call, you must go!

Before you cancel the much awaited plan, think if you’re actually unfit for the trek? Is it safe to trek during periods? If yes, what precautions need to be followed?

Pads or Tampons?

Although both seem good for trekkers, you can choose the one that makes you feel comfortable. Pad is always easy to carry and dispose, whereas tampons need to be handled a bit more carefully. You also need to keep a check on how much duration you’ve been wearing them. For monsoon and waterfall fun, tampons are highly recommended. Carry an extra plastic bag and always wrap your pads in paper and put it inside the bag in a separate section. Whenever you come across a bin, just dispose it and get rid of it.

Hygiene matters

You’ve got to be extra careful when it comes to hygiene. Carry a bunch of tissue papers, sanitizer, sanitary pads and extra clothes for effortless changing and keeping the germs at bay. You can also check out disposable panties that are easily available these days.

How to deal with the cramps?

Though you are a regular trekker, but when it comes to trekking during periods it gets a little dicey and you end up questioning your own decision. Experts say, the more you exercise the more you feel better. Yoga, trekking, cycling or any form of physical exertion is bound to relieve cramps. It you feel your cramps are unbearable and it would make things worse, only then consult a gynecologist for prescriptions. Otherwise, fresh air and greenery all around are sure to enlighten your mood and keep the cramps and mood swings away. Stay hydrated at all times and learn some yoga poses for stretching.

Dispose Responsibly

Usually, trekking routes are quite far from the animal habitats but be mindful of it anyway. If you throw your pad on the trail or bury it underground then maybe they’ll end up confusing it with food and might try to chew or consume, which is hazardous. So just dispose it safely.

Keep your leader informed

A leader needs to know everything about the group. Keep him/her informed so that they can help and guide you while you’re trekking or taking breaks in between.

There been a drastic hike in the number of female trekkers/backpackers and solo travelers. With the advancement in medical science there are a number of ways to deal with menstrual cycles and reduce the pain. Just don’t let this hamper your determination. Do step out for seeking the adventure you’ve been planning for so long. Be optimistic and prepare well. Let periods not be a hurdle…Be there…Shout out aloud…Answer when the mountain’s call!
