comment Walking through an active railway tunnel during a long distance walk
@Unsung: Not just one, there are 3 tunnels that I'll have to cross. There can be a longgggg alternative way, but people usually prefer crossing the tunnel. Its near Thakurwadi, Khandala Ghat, Maharashtra.

Sure thing, come here and I'll take you to places. Your way of handling the situation looks quite similar to what I'd do. :)

comment Acclimatizing to Hot weather
Again, I repeat, I didn't say, Hydrating at regular intervals is Acclimatization. I did say, Hydrating at regular intervals is necessary in order to sustain Acclimatization Routine. You don't sit in a tent the whole day to Acclimatize. You have to work out, might have to modify diet that suits the altitude/weather. Why do you think People in Nagpur (a hotter place) consume a lot of Oranges than any other city in Maharashtra? Thats sustenance, not Acclimatization.

comment Acclimatizing to Hot weather
@Unsung: "if I stay in Bangalore India(cooler place) and keep drinking a lot of water before going to say Rajasthan(a desert), will my body cope better because I've been drinking a lot of fluids?" I tend to agree, but am not sure. Though, had that been "if I've stayed in Bangalore India (cooler place) for years and now have moved to say Rajasthan(a desert), and I have started drinking more water than I used to when I was in Bangalore, will my body cope better?", I'd say definitely Yes!

comment Trekking Har ki doon (India): Permits and Guides
@Unsung: Indeed. I don't know about previous experience of the OP, but I am sure that he/she/they must have been preparing for this. I just thought about Language barrier and local solution to logistics, and it was never meant to be an advise to make a bull-blown guided expedition.
