Maggi in mountains

Be it Lonavala tiger point, Venna Lake at Mahabaleshwar, Beaches of Alibaug, the summit of Kalsubai Trek, Ashoka Waterfall, Rajmachi Trek, Dhabas on the highway, you will always find someone offering hot Maggi and a cuppa of tea. It has become a trusted food source that can be prepared quickly and connects with our memories of travel and good times.

Road Trip for Maggi

Some road trips are just planned so that we can eat Maggi at midnight at your favorite dhaba, which adds its touch with extra cheese, veggies, butter chicken, paneer, Indian Chinese sauces and many more combos. We all have experienced these moments with our friends and family.

Maggi Dhaba

In Maharashtra, Kanda Poha and Tea are stapled breakfast for trekkers, with Maggi being the new addition. What is your favorite food? Mine is a peanut butter sandwich and with black coffee. How do I get it on treks? I carry my breakfast, and my portal gas stove helps me with boiled water. So do mention in the comments your favorite food on treks.

Kanda Poha

Where should you go to find the most authentic cuisine? Trekkers are treated to authentic local food on treks made by villagers who carry the raw material until the summit, set up a kitchen, and serve warm food in the most beautiful locations. A lot of hard work is behind a simple meal on your trek.

Maggi Junk food

Similarly, for many trekkers, Maggi is also junk food that they avoid.

Chikki

There are many healthy options for trekkers like muesli and soy milk, Poha, Nuts and jaggery, Oats, Dry fruits, Chikki, Fruits, Theplas, Green tea, Herbal teas. These are easy to store for longer periods in your backpack, and freshness will last for days.

Cooking in the mountains

Now trekkers have started carrying portable gas stoves to cook their meals.

It is really handy to boil water and use a ready-to-cook meal packet, and you have your favorite dish ready and enjoy it anywhere. Plus, a portable gas stove is eco-friendly and time-saving. You can easily cook a Maggi in few minutes on a portable gas stove inside your tent, even on a windy day. Forest department and Archaeology Survey of India rules don't allow campfire in the forest or Forts when trekking or camping.

Trash in the mountains

Maggi wrappers are also a contributor to pollution and garbage problems in the mountains. Maggi the favorite food among trekkers; most wrappers are dumped on the slopes, burnt in the garbage pits, left behind inside caves and temporary kitchen setups. These are wrappers get carried away by winds to the edge of the mountain from where you cannot collect them. Monkeys also look for scraps inside them and distribute them all over the mountains.

Lonavala-garbage

Local kitchens and Dhabas mostly burn the wrappers inside a pit, which creates harmful smokes, and when it rains, a slurry gets mixed in groundwater, crops, streams. You can ask the Dhaba guy for the wrapper or carry your wrapper back to your home and dispose of it properly to avoid such situations. If you come across any wrappers on the slope, you should pick them up and put them in your garbage bag and dispose of them after segregation at your home.

You love the mountains, but you also love Maggi.

We get it. The mountains are gorgeous, and we need to keep them that way for future generations. But it just so happens that one of those things is being able to experience the hills free of garbage, in the way they've stayed for the last few million years in the way they're intended to be. And no matter how much you enjoy Maggi, I trust you won't fight with that.
