Health And Safety (Before Trekking and While Trekking):
Trekking in the Mountains is generally very rewarding and an unforgettable lifetime experience. However, it is very important to keep your safety in mind. Whether you’re going for the Everest Three Passes Trek in Nepal, conditions can change at any moment and in case of a sudden accident, medication help may not easily available, so be sure that you get an as good and safe trekking experience as possible. We still recommend, however, that you always prepare yourself as much as possible and go through the below guidelines and tips on health, safety, and altitude sickness while trekking. Keeping these in mind we will also help you make your trip Risk Free as much as possible:
      1. Before Trekking:
  • Know your destination very well you are going to for trekking.
  • Make sure you have proper clothing for all weather conditions (warm clothes, rain gear, and hat, scarf, and gloves). Please be prepared for adverse weather conditions and apply the mantra “better safe than sorry”.
  • Please bring the insurance details with you so that the expenses for a helicopter emergency evacuation or other emergency situations are covered, if needed.
  • Always bring water purifying tablets, carbon filters or alike even at high altitude water may be impure.
  • Personal hygiene is important in order not to get sick. Hand sanitizer or disinfection gel will get you far.
  • Carry a whistle with you and cell phone.
  • Bring first aid kit, especially if you are trekking alone. Generally, we highly recommend to always bring a guide while trekking in the Himalayas.
  • Always bring sunscreen, sunglasses and perhaps even a sun hat, a torch.
  • If you go trekking route ascends higher than 3,000 m, please read carefully about Altitude Sickness.
      2. While Trekking:
  • You will regularly encounter caravans of mules and yaks while trekking in the Himalayas. Always stay on the mountainside while you wait for them to pass, and do not go close to the ridges. Mules often carry heavy and wide loads so they may accidentally kick you off the mountain if you’re not careful enough.
  • Do not drink alcohol. It dehydrates you and thus increases the risk of altitude sickness if above 3,000 m.
  • Always carry a first-aid kit with you, wear warm clothes and rain gear with you.
  • Be sure always trek with a friend or guide.
  • While trekking above 3,000 m do not ascend too fast. Generally, it is not recommended to ascend more than 3-500 m per day as doing so will significantly increase the risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).
  • Must Carry a Flashlight with you along with a map, compass and potentially a GPS so that you always know your location.
  • Listen to the advice provided by your guide and trekking agency so you would be risk-free.
Altitude Sickness | Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) | Altitude Illness:
     
      1. What is Altitude Sickness?
  • Altitude illness is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) or Altitude Illness.
  • It is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to a low pressure of oxygen at high altitude.
  • Normally, ranges from a mild headache and weariness to a life-threatening disease, when fluid in the lungs (HAPE) or Brain (HACE) is built up.
  • Altitude illness should always be taken serious as ignoring it may ultimately lead to death.
      2. How is altitude illness caused?
  • It is a result of lack of oxygen.
  • The atmosphere will always have 21% oxygen the driving pressure decreases the higher we go. At sea level, the driving pressure forces sufficient oxygen into the capillaries of our lungs giving a saturation of oxygen in the blood and throughout the tissues. However, as we start to ascend an ever decreasing driving pressure also implies an ever decreasing oxygen level, giving less oxygen into the capillaries of our lungs and subsequently less oxygen in our blood and tissues.
  • Up to an altitude of around 8,000 feet, the driving pressures should be high enough to provide sufficient oxygen levels. When entering a terrain of 8,000 feet and higher pathophysiological changes may start to manifest due to lack of oxygen.
      3. What are altitude illness symptoms? 
  • Nausea
  • Tiredness
  • Sleeplessness, or
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue
  • Social withdrawal
  • Swelling extremities
  • Insomnia
  • Decreased Appetite
      4. How to treat altitude illness?
  • Always consult a doctor if available
  • In case of mild altitude sickness symptoms, stay at the same altitude. Ascend only when the symptoms have resolved completely.
  • At serious altitude sickness symptoms start to descend immediately. Consider getting a helicopter emergency evacuation
  • Serious altitude sickness symptoms may be treated with a Gamow bag – an inflatable high-pressure bag which helps to restore the oxygen level and air pressure.
      5. How to prevent altitude illness?
  • The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to ascend gradually.
  • When above 3,000 m it is not recommended to ascend more than 300-400 m per day. Even if you’ve not ascended more than 300 m but still feel a headache, tiredness or any other of the above-listed altitude sickness symptoms, always take a rest day to further acclimatize.
  • Proper hydration helps to prevent altitude sickness so drink sufficient water.
  • The general water drinking guideline is to drink 1 liter of water per 1,000 m.
  • Another recommended way to prevent altitude sickness is the use of Diamox (Acetazolamide) pills so as to speed up the acclimatization.
  • As soon as you ascend more than 3,000 m you can start taking 1 pill per day.
