We would suggest to our guest to use boiled water or water purification pills than buying a bottle of water, it helps to avoid plastic bottles which can take long time to disappear. During the trek, if possible you can order same items food in a group which minimizes the fuel used and to make the campfire is almost forbidden. We would encourage being a responsible traveler so, just leaving foot-print on the trail and bring out all non-biodegradable which you had.
