Requirement of Travel Insurance during Short Manaslu Trek

When choosing a travel insurance policy, make sure it covers activities such as trekking and adventure sports and has a high enough coverage limit to meet your needs. Here are some reasons why:

  • Trip Cancellation: If you have to cancel your trip for any reason, travel insurance will cover the cost of any pre-paid expenses, such as flights, hotels, and trekking permits.

Altitude sickness is a common problem for trekkers in the high mountains, including the Manaslu Circuit Short Trekking. Here are some remedies to help you cope with altitude sickness:

  • Acclimatize: Gradual acclimatization is the best way to reduce the risk of altitude sickness. This means spending several days at lower elevations before starting the trek and allowing your body to adjust to the change in altitude.
  • Hydrate: Drinking plenty of water is crucial in preventing altitude sickness. Aim to drink at least 3 to 4 liters of water per day, and avoid alcohol and caffeine, which can dehydrate you.
  • Pace Yourself: Take your time and avoid overexerting yourself. Walk slowly and rest when you feel tired.
  • Medications: Over-the-counter medications such as ibuprofen and acetaminophen can help relieve symptoms of altitude sickness. Talk to your doctor before taking any medication to ensure it is safe for you.

    Short Manaslu Circuit Trek with Gopal

    This is the ideal schedule for you if you need to do the Manaslu Circuit Trek but are short on time. It can be finished in about 11 days. The guide was friendly and experienced. We enjoyed the dal bhat and momo we had. My acclimatization day was quite helpful. Anyone looking to discover and experience something different from the Everest Base Camp Journey and the Annapurna Base Camp Trek is advised to go on the trek.
