LOCAL WEATHER & TEMPERATURE
The weather conditions in Kathmandu are difficult to predict in advance. During the day it can be nice and warm, however, the nights may get colder.
ALTITUDE & ACCLIMATIZATION
There is no way to prepare for altitude other than to spend time acclimatizing. Being in very good physical condition will help ameliorate some of the exhaustion that people often feel, but it will not prevent altitude sickness.
All of our itineraries are designed to accommodate proper acclimatization and preparation during the trip to ensure sound health. If you follow our lead, you can avoid Acute Mountain Sickness easily.
Trekking above the 3,000 meters may attract AMS or other similar medical conditions. At this height the Oxygen available is comparatively lesser than the sea level. The higher you go, the lesser the Oxygen you may find.
ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS (AMS)
Mountain Sickness can be a very serious and potentially life threatening condition. You need to be aware of the symptoms, and act as prescribed by your trip guide. Some people may attract AMS at 3,000 meters, while others can easily ascend above without being affected. A person’s susceptibility to this does not appear to be dependent upon fitness. A clear way to reduce AMS is to ensure you maintain your intake of liquids, or descend immediately when you are aware of the illness.
