Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness.

Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.

Is Nepal Safe?
No doubt, Nepal is safe for trekking, hiking and mountaineering. The trekking trails are improvised and maintained as well. In many technical sections, ropes have been fixed.
The stains of the devastating earthquake have also been healing up and the decade long armed insurgency has also come to an end along with the implementation of the new constitution.
Tourist Help Desk and Tourism Information Centre have been established at the prominent tourist destinations. Moreover, you will receive a respectable welcome everywhere you go. The Nepali people are simple and kind to you and pay a wonderful hostage to you.
Don’t worry; Nepal is a safe country to visit.
