  • Firewood is scarce and should be used sparingly, whether for heating water (hamam) or for bonfire or for fire-places provided. Avoid making open fires and discourage others from doing so. There should be no carelessness with reference to fire. One small careless fire can destroy an entire forest. Extinguish any fire—bonfire, fire in grill etc before leaving the place. Do not throw away cigarettes, bidis or matches.
  • Read up literature, brochure, be aware of the environs and surrounds. Be clear about the trek—some have a gentle slope, some have a moderate slope and others are precipitous. Match your physical fitness with the hike being taken up. Keep required medicines, water and inform the guide / networking coordinator complete details about yourself. You cannot half way ask to terminate the tour.
  • Take all precautions not to get lost and in the eventuality, specified instructions be followed. Avoid confusion and panic.
  • Check vehicle travel to reduce for polluting gases/smoke. Pooling for travel is cheaper and lesser polluting. Use bicycles/horses/ponies and wherever possible walk—healthy, non-polluting—stand and stare—there is so much to absorb—the mountain terrain is awesome, serene and educative. Avoid noise pollution—blaring horns, music systems (radios/tape-recorders), loud mobile talking. Silence in the majestic mountains has meaning and character. Take in the peace and tranquility.
  • Avoid offering food to animals and birds as thereby you are threatening their foraging and spoiling their hunting skills. Otherwise too, the food you give will probably make them unhealthy. Feeding monkeys too is common and should be discouraged as it spreads nuisance. A monkey bite can mean spread of rabies. If you see anyone hunting or hurting/teasing animals, report them to the authorities; if you cannot stop them yourselves. Wildlife viewing must be done, observing all security and conditions prescribed. Shouting, teasing or chasing animals is strictly prohibited.
  • It is illegal to carry fire-arms/nets or any explosives. Do not also carry polythenes or other prohibited plastics.
  • While taking photographs or shooting with your video-camera (for which there is a prescribed fee) you are encouraged not to disturb the subject you want to capture in any way. Do not use flashes, particularly close up, as this can disturb and annoy wild animals and nesting birds.
  • Strictly follow the guidelines for personal safety and security taking required precautions.
  • Wear comfortable clothes with inconspicuous colours like khaki, olive green or grey so as not to disturb environs with bright and gaudy colours. Use good quality trekking shoes—some are rain-proof too. Use hats/caps during hot days and rain gear during rains and jackets/wind-cheaters during cold. Travel light in terms of baggage. Back packers only carry essentials—food, medicines, camera.
