The trekker goes through a whole year of hot clothing and several cups of hot chai to keep the body and mind alive in such incredibly high altitudes and unsettled weather conditions.. The trekkers go through a whole year of hot clothes day by day. While the rest of the world will fight against the heat of the swell, which falls at lower heights, walkers would walk through luxuriant mountains with greenery, a calm and agreeable atmosphere.
