Altitude Sickness:

PLEASE NOTIFY your HEAD GUIDE immediately if you have the following symptoms during the trek:

1)        A respiratory infection

2)       A sore throat

3)      A cold

4)      A cough

5)      A high temperature

6)      A nose bleed

Altitude sickness occurs at times during the trek. If you have decided to take any medication for altitude, we do recommend you start taking it 3 days before reaching high altitude and continue taking it until you complete your trek. There are also many trekkers who have trekked successfully without using medication for altitude sickness.
