It was very nice reading it Doctor. Loved the thoughts penned down which can be experienced in the mountains itself.
Thanks for sharing.

How much stamina do you think would this need? Not quantifiable, but how would you scale it against say a Yeoor trek [Yeoor being 2 on 10]?

Thanks Gautam. It will be 7. What the organisers recommend is, that you should be able to run 5kms in 1/2 an hour.

Thanks for the reply Doctor. 5 kms in half an hour is doable. But need to try that with a rucksack.

Ideally a rucksack should not weigh more than 8-9 kgs. You have an option of offloading it to the mules or porters. But the camera, lens and a jacket etc will weigh atleast 5 kgs.
