    Permits : To feel the real adventure

    by offbeatentrekker Written Jul 11, 2006

    Permits: Inner line permits are usually required for some of Lahaul & Spiti, and Kinnaur. Regulations, and their implemantations, have noticeably relexed in recent times.
    Check the current regulations with the relevent authorities or other travellers.
    Foreigners can travel between Leh & Manali without permit. A permit is not usually required for travel between Leh, or Manali, and Kaza, the capital of the Spiti sub-district.
    From Tabo to Rekong Peo, you need a permit, but from Rekong Peo to Shimla, no permit is required.
    Permits can be obtained from the District and sub-district magistrates offices in most regional centres. It's better to get them in Kaza or Rekong Peo so you don't waste any of your seven days permit just getting to these places.

    Altitude

    by wrldtravler Written Oct 16, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Though Himachal Pradesh offers abundent Hiking, Trekking and mountain climbing possibilities one must be extremely careful. Though the terrain itself varies and hence can be chosen as per the trekker's preferences and experience. One of the most important and quite underestimated factor is the altitude. Manali itself is only at an altitude of around 2000 meters. The air is most definately thin and any person can notice the difference in exursion on the body as a result of less oxygen.
    It is crucial that you constantly consult with a trekking map and make sure you account for altitude along with distance and terrain, while making your hiking / Trekking plans.
