  • People here are welcoming in nature; Do not feel cautious when folks stare at you; they are just concerned in visitors and have no ill aims.
  • Overgenerous facilities are difficult to be found out during the trek while basic services can only be provided seeking the difficulty of the geographical regions you are located at for the time being.
  • Destructive nature towards floras and faunas along the trek should be avoidable at any cost as you should be in authority towards the environment.
  • Contributing money to folks will inspire children and beggars to have an observation to plead more from the visitors which is why such performance should be completely dejected.
