Looking back at 2015, we published a fair share of Himalayan blogs. They were well received. Now as we say farewell to the passing year, we want to recap our five most well received Himalayan Blogs of 2015.

Diamox of late has become the preferred choice among trekkers. Many Trek Organizers insist their trekkers take a dose of Diamox before they come for the trek. This is a worrying trend.

#4. Three most inspiring cleaning initiatives on the Himalayan trails of 2015

#5. Six ways to avoid foot blisters on a Himalayan Trek
