What is the washroom/toilet facilities like on the trek?
During the trek, toilet tents will be set up along each campsite. A toilet tent will have a deep pit, where one can answer nature’s call. There will be a mound of soil and a shovel to cover it up. These are dry toilets, where you’ll have to use toilet paper. This is the most hygienic and convenient way to answer nature’s call in the wild. Please use plain toilet paper and refrain from using wet wipes since these are not biodegradable.
What will be the accommodation?
Ali Bedni Bugyal is a 6-day trek. The stay on Day 1 and Day 5, at Lohajung, will be in a guest house, where you will share rooms with fellow trekkers. Stay on all other days of the trek will be in tents. Each tent will be shared among 2 trekkers. Toilet tents will be set up for the convenience of trekkers.

What if it rains while trekking?
If it starts raining while you’re trekking, we will continue on the trail as planned. Your poncho should protect you from the rain. Carry a backpack cover for extra protection from rain for your belongings.
What will be the temperature on the trek?
During the summers, the weather is clear but you have to dress in layers at the night. The temperature will be between 10 to -5 degrees. The higher the altitude you gain, the colder it gets.
When it gets really cold can I consume alcohol?
Alcohol is dangerous in extreme cold, especially at high altitudes. Contrary to what people believe, alcohol does not make you warmer. Instead, it opens your pores, making your body colder. Moreover, it dehydrates you very quickly. Hence consumption of alcohol is absolutely prohibited on all Nomad Adventures treks. Anyone found with alcohol is quickly removed from the trek. Smoking, similarly, is not allowed on Nomad Adventures treks.
What all do I need to carry on the trek?
Please visit the 'Things to Carry' tab to check the essentials required for the trek.

No, but there are shops on the base camp from where you can rent shoes, jackets and trek poles, headlights etc.
Do I need special snow shoes on this trek?
You don’t need special snowshoes. A good waterproof trekking shoe is sufficient for the trek. When there is snow, we provide micro spikes and gaiters.

A trekking pole gives you stability and balance and helps reduce fatigue.
