HIMALAYAS TREKKING

Himalayas Trekking

The Himalayas is perhaps one of the oldest mountains in the world. It has the tallest peak measuring about 28,000 feet from the sea level.It is very difficult to walk on the ice-capped paths with the bare feet.The trekkers have to wear special shoes. As it is snow all around the human eyes seeing the snow for a long time go blind. This is called snow-blindness. So the trekkers have to wear special goggles to protect themselves from the blinding glare of snow. The temperature in the upper reaches of the Himalayas may be 400 Celsius or so. So specially made clothes to withstand the freezing temperature are needed for those who scale the Himalayas. The trekkers set up tents in different places and rest there now and then.The glaciers which form in the Himalayas are sometimes deceptive. They are accumulations of thick snow and sometimes the deposits of snowfall or the glaciers may have formed over a crevice.
