    Hi Arpita,

    Pro Campers do camping even at temperatures of -10 degs…but they are then prepared for the cold and have proper insulation…

    Some guidelines:
    1. Take enough warm clothes to keep you warn and dry.
    2. Wear multiple layers instead of some thick layers.
    3. Its most imp to keep ears covered and keep feet warm.
    4. Keep your head covered.
    5. Take water regularly, even if you dont feel thirsty, its common to get dehydrated without feeling thirsty.
    6. Take proper shoes (perferable Ankle shoes) so they dont get wet in snow.
    7. Avoid Alcohol (excessive drinking) it can cause dehydration and nausea.
    8. Make sure the camps are high altitude camps and sleeping bags can sustain warmth in sub zero temperatures.

    Thats about it…let me know if you need something specific.
