It is a low Oxygen trek and one needs preparation to tackle problems associated with Altitude Sickness .

Teghbir started preparing for this feat almost a year back .  He was trained by Bikramjit Singh Ghuman ( Retired Coach ) who used to help him with the exercises related to increase Cardio Vascular Health and Increase Lung capacity to deal with Altitude Sickness .

He used to go on weekly treks with his father and coach to different hilly locations.
