Himachal Pradesh is a peaceful and quiet state with very friendly local residents. People are welcoming and seldom create any trouble to the tourists. You should be mindful about the following things when you come to Himachal Pradesh:

  1. Avoid indulging with commission agents and explore the local attractions in the state.
  2. Be kind to local community, connect with as many locals as possible and ask them for recommendations about local experiences in Himachal.
  3. Find reviews of local businesses on internet before making bookings.
  4. Use information provided by Tourism Information Centres setup by Tourism Department.
  5. Find Local Experiences rather than touristy destinations and experiences.
  6. Keep enough cash handy because you will not find al lot of local businesses accepting digital payments.
  7. Try to visit Himachal during fruit crop seasons mostly ranging from April to October other than the snowy winters.

We all love watching one of the highly rated reality shows on television, “Man vs Wild” featuring Bear Grills as a survival skills expert who demonstrates skills to survive in inhumane conditions and circumstances where normal people give-up hopes of survival.

How would it be if we had such an expert of mountains and outdoors here in India and we could go out in his guidance and test our survival skills, walk under the stars, forage for food and build a shelter with hands and minimum tools? Well, its very much possible.

If you remember watching a video of two determined men climbing  a frozen waterfall in Himalayas, one of them is Pranav Rawat, an avid mountaineer and survival expert who’s back with his Survival Night Weekend Wilderness Fun in the GiriGanga camp.

In Pranav Rawat’s words,”My recent endeavor was India’s epic frozen waterfall climb where I climbed the Shela waterfall (260 ft, WI4). Near Kaza town, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh. With over a decade spent in the mountains, independent exploration has been the focus of my mountaineering career. I am gradually foraying into alpinism and ice climbing, trying to push the boundaries of the sport in context of our country.”

He further adds,”Survival Night Weekend Wilderness Fun is all about making different type of light weight shelter with available materials and have to survive whole night in Nov cold. The program is more about have fun and adventure and test your limits and go beyond your imagination of sleeping outside in the wilderness.”

If you are up for an adventure and want to test your survival skills in mountains with an expert, you don’t have to wait anymore.
