There Are Some Rules To Follow

According to some sources and reports, the interested mountaineers will have to submit a huge amount of ₹10,000 for each team before they begin the journey to the top. They will be refunded an amount after returning. However, this amount will depend on how they treat the environment and how they keep the surroundings in Uttarakhand clean. This move is initiated to protect the ecosystem and stop littering at these places.

A very important point to keep in mind before going on this journey is that only 12 teams with 10 members in each team are allowed to trek to the peak twice a year. And all trekkers need to follow each and every rule and regulation of the Forest Department and Uttarakhand Mountaineering Association.
