Mountain Etiquette That You Should Remember As A Trekker

What do you do when a pack of mules or a herd of sheep comes your way while trekking? Do you climb higher? Do you take a step back? Do you take a step onto the lower side of the mountain?

Or what do you do when you see a rock rolling down the hillside?

And is it okay to listen to music while trekking?

Trekking in the mountains comes with its set of manners. Whether you’re trekking alone or with a group, in the Himalayas or elsewhere, these are manners you should never forget.

In this episode of Trek Talks With Vishnu Benne, Vishnu interviews our Senior Trek Leader Dushyant Sharma, who tells us a little bit about mountain etiquette. Give it a listen.
