Altitude Sickness and Acclimatization at 3 Passes Trek Nepal

Trekking in the Everest Region, the worlds highest trekking destination, involves a number of risks, including altitude sickness. As you climb higher, the air becomes thinner, making breathing difficult. If you try to hurry and walk quickly to get to your goal in a shorter amount of time, you may develop AMS, or Acute Mountain Sickness.
Diamox and a good nights sleep may be sufficient in mild cases. Keeping your body hydrated and consuming enough water might also help you avoid nausea. The necessary steps must be done to ensure that the situation does not worsen. If the symptoms worsen, you may need to reduce your height and seek medical help.
Before going on a high-altitude expedition such as the Everest Three High Passes Trek, acclimatization is required. Resting at a lower level before going to a higher elevation will allow your body to acclimate to the thin air. Our experts have included two days for acclimatization and a contingency day in the program.
