Teerthyatri has always been at the forefront in bringing in new safety practices into Indian trekking. Microspikes for walking on snow was introduced by Teerthyatri Emergency bottled oxygen on all treks was made mandatory by Teerthyatri. So was using pulse oxymeters to test pulse and oxygen saturation levels. Radio as safety communication device was introduced in treks by Teerthyatri. Though not every organisation follow these systems, I am happy to see many of our competing organisations adopting these practices (fairly quickly, I must admit!).
Here then are the new safety protocols that Teerthyatri is bringing in.
