I keep travelling; some journeys we have to undertake alone, but for other journeys it is good to travel in a small group of like-minded people.

I invite people to join me as I travel India wide especially in the Himalaya

{1} Visiting ancient temples
{2} Trekking (easy treks as well as high altitude treks)
{3} Camping (my greatest joy; I usually camp by the river or other areas untouched yet close to villages)

My brief introduction: I have stopped sailing 10 years back and currently teaching at a marine academy. I am from new Mumbai (Bombay)

Feel free to interact; I visit this site daily except when I travel, that is when I am off the net
May all beings be happy, May all be healthy, May people have the well-being of all{humans & animals} in mind, May no body suffer in any way.

Upanishads

great, So I proceed solo for gujarat and we tentatively meet in new delhi, mid November
Please note the main temples of gharwal in uttarakhand are closed for winter at that time

Regarding your queries
There is time to plan, we will choose a good winter trek, I have always travelled in uttarakhand and never visited himachal
No need to go through operator as in most cases they outsource it to local people and in many treks, guides are not needed we can take local porters

I use a simple dome tent (costing Indian rupees 2000) which is ok till 4000m altitude
Since you will proceed to Himalaya first, better if you carry old woolens and trekking shoes etc which you can give away to the porters, so when you proceed to south India you will be light

I usually travel in south india taking 2 white dhotis (very comfortable traditional leg ware instead of pant) and some t shirts only
We will keep in touch
