I am planning for a trek at the Advance Base Camp or if possible up to Camp II of Saser Kangri. The region is so deserted of people and expeditionists/mountaineers that there are usually only two to three odd tents at the Base Camp of the mountain, and its a known fact that once you are beyond the Base Camp, yours is the only team at campsites en-route the summit.
The weather is very harsh, and the mountain does not allow much area to take a walk on a day when you are not going up the mountain. All you have is a deserted campsite and solace to enjoy. And this goes on for days, sometimes worst case for a week. In such cases, you are stuck at higher camps with absolutely no way to roam around or move up the mountain. All you can do is to hope and wait for the weather to get suitable for further progress.
I am an ass when it comes to reading for hours or even sitting idle. I usually tend to doze off when I am not doing anything.
In such a case if I sleep for more than 16 hours a day, does that put me in a trouble by any means?
Also, what are your tricks to stay up? I don't like reading much.
