Okay so we know the max altitude or Rupin Pass and the kilometers you have to travel to get there, but just for fun, what if we mixed things up a little bit?
What do the statistics of the Rupin Pass trek look like in everyday terms? How many Hershey’s bars-worth of calories will you burn on this trek, or how many Eiffel Towers will you gain in elevation? Let’s take a look…
By the time you step into Sangla at the close of your Rupin trek:
You will have hiked to 4,650 meters.
That's the equivalent of 15.5 Eiffel Towers
50 Statues of Liberty
or 2,735 average-sized men standing one on top of the other.
You will burn 30,723 calories.
That's how many calories are in approximately 119 paranthas
203 balls of gulab jamun
or 307 spoons of Nutella
You will have hiked 54 kilometers.
That's like walking across 395,900 bars of Hershey's chocolate
or 30,875 Justin Biebers laying down one after the other
Your lungs will inhale 239,400 times
A person normally breathes 161,280 times in a week
Your heart will beat 982,800 times.
Your heart normally beats 806,400 times every 7 days
That's 176,400 extra beats every week.
That's 9,172,800 extra beats every year.
Enough beats for 80 extra days of living.
Moral of this story: trek longer, live longer. It's science.*
*Disclaimer: we are not scientists, but it's fun to pretend sometimes.
