1. String Cheese

According to Wikipedia, String cheese refers to several different types of cheese where the manufacturing process aligns the proteins in the cheese, which makes it stringy. When mozzarella is heated to 60 °C and then stretched, the milk proteins line up. It is possible to peel strings or strips from the larger cheese.

2. Chocolate Bars

According to Wikipedia, A chocolate bar is a chocolate confection in an oblong or rectangular form, which distinguishes it from bulk dark chocolate produced for commercial use or individually portioned chocolates such as pastillesbonbons, and truffles.

In most of the English-speaking world, the chocolate bar also refers to a typically snack-sized bar coated with or substantially consisting of chocolate but containing other ingredients. The first solid chocolate bar was produced by Fry of Bristol, England in 1847, which was then mass-produced as Fry’s Chocolate Cream in 1866.

3. Dried Fruits:

According to Wikipedia, Dried fruit is fruit from which the majority of the original water content has been removed either naturally, through sun drying, or through the use of specialized dryers or dehydrators.

Dried fruit has a long tradition of use dating back to the fourth millennium BC in Mesopotamia, and is prized because of its sweet taste, nutritive value, and long shelf life.

4. Banana

Banana is Very Nutritious as Well are Filled with a Lot of Proteins and Carbohydrates. Eating 2 banana will Keep You healthy and Fit. My 9 Favourite Fruit is Banana.

5. Honey

Pure Honey is Consumable Even If You have it After 3000 Years. That’s a Fact. According to Wikipedia, Honey is a sweet, viscous food substance produced by bees and some related insects.

 Bees produce honey from the sugary secretions of plants (floral nectar) or from secretions of other insects such as honeydew). They do this by regurgitation, enzymatic activity, and water evaporation. Honey is stored in wax structures called honeycombs.

 The variety of honey produced by honey bees (the genus Apis) is the best-known, due to its worldwide commercial production and human consumption. Honey is collected from wild bee colonies, or from hives of domesticated bees, a practice known as beekeeping.

6. Energy Bars

According to Wikipedia and My Personal Research, Energy Bars are the Best Cause they Will Provide You with Energy That You Require to Complete the Climb. Energy bars are used as an energy source during athletic events like the marathon, triathlon, and other events and outdoor activities, where energy expenditure is high, for a longer period of time.

Water is Life Anyway You See it. If You Don’t Drink Enough Water You can Survive in the Higher Altitude Areas. I Would Suggest You Drink As Much Water as Possible. Drinking Lot of Water Will Not Only Make You feel Fresh But Also Will Make You Fight Altitude Sickness.

I would Suggest You Drink At least 200 ml Water After Every 1-2 Hour.
