- Have a guide with you or make a well researched plan for yourself and only then embark on to your trip.- If you visit this place during the winters, make sure you carry woolen clothes along because it gets really cold at nights.- Forget all your stresses and drench yourself in the love that this has to offer.- Medication and food facilities are available at frequent intervals, so it shall not be an issue.
