HEALTH ISSUES & VACCINATIONS:-
As vaccination requirements change frequently, we suggest consulting your doctor prior to the beginning of trip. We recommend protection against malaria, tetanus, typhoid, hepatitis, polio etc.
GENERAL MEDICINES:-
We have well planned treks hygienic food served with boiled water but still you may be sick due to many other reasons. So, it is always better to carry own medical kit-boxes in case of any emergency.
High Altitude Sickness:-
Often known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is particularly a important medical consideration while trekking in Nepal. Altitude sickness means the effect of altitude on those who ascend too rapidly to elevation above 3000 m.

The initial symptoms of AMS are as following:
Nausea, vomiting
Loss of appetite
Insomnia / Sleeplessness
Persistent headache
Dizziness, lightheadach, confusion,
Disorientation, drunken gait.
Weakness, fatigue, lassitude and heavy legs.
Slight swelling of hands and face
Breathlessness and breathing irregularity
Reduced urine output
.

Altitude Sickness has the potential to affect all travelers from 2500 m and higher. Your body needs time to adjust to smaller quantities of oxygen in the air at 5500 m/ 18,044 ft; the air pressure is approximately half that of sea level, i.e. there is half the amount of oxygen. Acute Mountain Sickness is caused by going up high too fast and can be fatal if the entire warning signals are ignored. This itinerary for Climbing approaching trek route has gradual climb and down, hence, chances of AMS are also on the treks to other high altitude areas. However, one needs to be careful and take all the necessary precautions.
These symptoms are to be taken very seriously. In case of appearance of any of the above symptoms any further ascent should be reconsidered, otherwise more serious problem can occur which can even cause death sometimes within a few hours. The only cure for the altitude sickness is to descend to lower elevations immediately and it has no other cure or substitute. Acclimatization by ascending to no more than 300 to 500 meters per day above 3000 meters and the proper amount of rest are the best methods for prevention of AMS. Literature and pamphlet published by "Himalayan Rescue Association" consists of detailed information on AMS.
