comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
Well, that's a shame. I guess Stok Kangri too will get commercialized badly in the years to come. It already has a cafe at the basecamp. I won't be surprised if we end up seeing internet cafe at the base camp in the next few years.

@WedaPashi Thank you for the suggestion. But do you know of any peak higher than Stok which are still viable for trekking?

@Oreotrephes So is it possible to do multiple peaks during a span of say, a couple of weeks?

comment Trek-able peaks in the himalayan range
Just to add to your answer, I've heard of a peak named Island peak in nepal. Although the last stretch of the peak is difficult, it's still doable is what I've heard.

comment What is considered a water source, and why is it recommended to camp so far from them?
On a lighter note, if you sleep walk, you might end up in a lake full of alligators. ;)

comment Does whiskey help keep you warm in winter?
Also, alcohol leads to dehydration. Hence having alcohol to warm yourself at higher altitudes can kill you.

comment Winter Camping: How to warm up your boots in the morning?
I second @berry120 Even I find putting on the shoes and running a few rounds better. Haven't faced any major discomfort with the same.

comment Is it ever safe to let a hypothermic person sleep?
@ChrisCarr Means the option you have is to stay awake till light. Warm fluids can help. Any sign of lack of response, or slowing down of response, lack of shivering, a temporary feeling of warmth even when the actual body temperature being low is a sign of sever hypothermia. The only solution is to find medical help ASAP. I repeat it again, NEVER sleep off. Sleeping only worsens a situation.
