Question 7- What do I need to know about sun protection?
It may seem counter-intuitive, but your skin is in more danger of sun damage on the mountains than while at the beach! The sun's intensity increases dramatically as we rise in altitude, and fresh snow reflects exponentially more UV rays than does the sand. You will need to protect your skin with clothing and sunblock. A sunblock specifically for mountain conditions is recommended. If you wear prescription eyeglasses its recommend that you get your prescription fitted to sunglasses.

The speed limit depends on the regions you cross during your overland mountain expedition.You will be handed over the speed chart and the guidelines once you step in Manali.

In addition our guides are consistently mindful of all guests' whereabouts while travelling. We travel in small groups, all the better to easily maintain continual contact.

It varies. Mobile coverage is expanding around the world rapidly, and the Himalayas are no different… did you know that 3G coverage is available all over Mount Everest? There is no guarantee of uninterrupted coverage.
