Nepal Travel Hazard

Sometimes travelers face health hazards mainly due to the high altitude. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a frequent problem in the Himalayan region. It can affect a traveler in various ways that have little to do with age, sex or physical fitness. Acclimatization to altitude above 3000m takes time to adjust. The body undergoes a number of Physiological changes, some of which are increased pulse and respiratory rate. Others appear slowly over a period of week like the change in acid base balance and production of extra red blood cells. These changes and the effect of intense sunlight, strenuous walks and dehydration may cause some mild or vague symptoms such as loss of appetite, fatigue, headache, nausea, dizziness, palpitations, sleeplessness, breathlessness. The best treatment is prevention. Do not exert yourself or walk too fast. Drink plenty of liquid, eat well and watch for warning sings. Keep physical activity to the minimum. If you have a history of respiratory and heart problem please consult your doctor before embarking on any one of our trips.
