Acute Mountain Sickness may happen when the travelers rapidly up to the height of 3000m. Our itineraries are designed with rest days. Once when you arrived at high altitude, your acclimatization line will raise your body to start to adjust. The commonly happened in altitude are shortness of breath, light headache, whereas the mountain sickness is quite different which involves a severe headache, vomiting etc.

The trained and expert guides will every day advise you about your health conditions, requirements and altitude sickness while you are trekking, hiking and climbing. Thats why you should not worry about the sickness. Also, we would like to recommend you to meet your doctor, advisor before you start your travel.

A big tick off my Bucket List View all

I have never thought of myself as a hiker or a trekker, but somehow, the idea of trekking through the Himalayas and venturing through Nepals and the worlds highest mountain seems exhilarating and almost out of reach. I did the trek to Mount Everest Base Camp in October 2013, and it was and still is one of the best experience in my life. We had Gyanu as our guide for the entire trip and not only has he been patient with a beginner trekker like myself, he explained and shared with us his cult Linda Nguyen
