Trekking in Nepal is a unique experience. So, to get maximum enjoyment you should be physically and mentally prepared. During the trek, you might have to hike approximately 5-6 hours almost everyday or 500-600m uphill or downhill. So, preparation should commence months before-walking, jogging, hiking and physical training would be very helpful.

Trekking guide will assist and brief all your questions and confusion during trek. The company will provide you the best and authorised guide to make your holiday. Potters are very strong and poor Nepali people who will carry all your baggage where ever you go. Don’t Forget to tip them for their service .

Acclimatization

When Shishu plan your itinerary, we take everything into consideration about the altitude and other factors to minimize the chance of getting AMS. Altitude gains-your trek is designed to gain around 600 meters (vertical) altitude daily. Acclimatization – rest days are included in itinerary to help body adjust to new altitude. Each trekker must accept responsibility and trek slowly – observe the steps at which the porters and guide walks. There are no worthwhile prizes for getting to destination in record time – generally AMS.

Treatment

Mild symptoms – staying at same altitude may resolve symptoms. If there is no improvement, descend to lower level. Severe (HAPE + HACE) – descend immediately, as failure to do so could result in death. If symptoms persist you may need to be carried to nearest medical facility or evacuated by helicopter.

Travel Insurance 

We strongly recommend the purchase of trip cancellation and travel insurance. This comprehensive travel insurance provides coverage for trip cancellation and interruption, travel delays, loss of baggage and travel documents, baggage delay, medical expenses and emergency assistance.
