General

You mentioned that wireless phones are restricted, how come? I assume there will not be any reception/coverage in most places anyway.

Bali Pass is a remote high altitude pass and comes under Govind Ballabh Pant National Park, this region is vastly accessible only on foot hence no network coverage is in the region

Does this mean that we cannot bring our iPhones? Is it possible to have it on flight mode and only use for photographing? Or just have them with us turned off?

You can use your phone for photographs, videos & flashlight by keeping them on flight mode for saving battery. Headlamps will still be highly recommended.

All of us have children at home and it will be hard for us not to get in contact with them during so many days. If I remember it correctly, there was a village on our route, is there cell coverage there?

There is Osla Village slightly off the trail where there used to be a satellite phone, but its no longer operational

What precautions/actions/medicines do you provide in the event of Altitude sickness and/or fatigue?

You can start the course of Diamox after you reach Rishikesh. Make sure to consult a doctor regarding this medicine if you are really concerned about the altitude gain.

Travel (Trip Planning)

Did you have any suggestion of where to put the rest of our belongings while we hike?

So as per this trekking trail, we start from one region (Sankri Village) and end at other (JankiChatti) other part of Uttarakhand. Hence we can either book a cab from Sankri to get our luggage from Sankri to JankiChatti on last day.

We serve a mix of Indian, continental meals during the trek and at our Homestay in Sankri. Meals: Breakfast, Dinner, Packed Lunch / Hot Lunch, Evening Tea, Soup with a light / heavy snack.

Planning your Journey

I believe a walking stick is good to have, to spare our knees and gain balance. I’m used to my wooden stick, but I cannot bring it to India, I therefore wonder if it is possible to find one of those in any forest we pass or if we could find a bamboo stick?

You can either buy a bamboo stick when in Rishikesh, (you can also find one in the forest), however hiking poles are easily available online and on Decathlon.

The water, I hope that we don’t carry ALL water with us? Since we need so many liters per day.. I guess there is water to be found on the way, from streams, snow and such?

Yes, to begin with the hike you can fill your bottles and hydration pack up, the guide will intimate you about the water filling points while on trek, and we will be camping around water sources.
