Last week, our team conducted a comprehensive 4-day safety and Green Trails training for all guides at Jiskun, the start point of the Rupin Pass trek.
The training focussed on covering technical skills, medical techniques, and also Green Trails.
“The technical sessions covered essential techniques like making knots, Tyrolean Traverse, and rappelling. In medical, we covered evacuation, and stretcher-making with the help of ropes. We also covered cold injuries, hypothermia, snake bites, wound management and a whole range of other injuries that could happen during a trek apart from HAPE, HACE, and AMS.
During the Green Trails training, we dove deep into the G6 practices and how they impact a trek,” shares Trek Leader Ashish Sukhadare, who conducted this training along with Ankit, our Green Trails Intern.
The impact of this training is already evident among the eight guides.
“These trainings help in reducing the knowledge gap between Trek Leaders and Guides when it comes to handling emergencies or Green Trails on a trek. Now, even our guides are confident about stepping up and effectively handling an emergency on a trek. This makes trekking safer,” Ashish adds.
