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.

comment Trekking in the himalayan region
Thanks a lot. I travelled the Gharwal region off late. I was planning of a trek to the Stok Kangri peak during July this year. Regarding Bhutan, the prices have only gone up I believe.

comment Trekking in the himalayan region
Thanks for the detailed answer. But personally, I prefer something more secluded than a crowded place. I recently had been to a trek in the region and I'm trying to gather more information on other trekking routes.
