Everest Base Camp TrekThe Everest region of Nepal is one of the best-known trekking routes in the world. This is also the home of the highest mountains in the world attracting trekkers, climbers, researchers over the years. Also, the region gives insight into the lifestyle of the Sherpa people who are considered the best mountaineers in the world. Many trekkers used to walk in from the road head at Jiri, through the lovely rolling hills of the Solu region. But, nowadays most of the trekkers prefer to fly to Lukla to start their trek. A few days of walking beyond Lukla we reach to the Sagarmatha National Park and the town of Namche Bazaar, where we take a day to acclimatize to the high altitude. From here the route branches out towards the village of Thame, the birthplace of Late Tenzing Norgey who first climbed Mt. Everest with Late Edmund Hillary in 1953 and set the world’s record in the history of mountaineering. The other route takes onto the two main Khumbu routes, one goes to Gokyo Lake or another towards the Everest base camp. Beyond Namche Bazaar lies the Sherpa village called Khumjung and further on the famous monastery of Thyangboche

Altitude Sickness

1. Basic Symptoms:

  • Loss of appetite
  • Sleep disturbance
  • Difficult to pass urine

2. Medium Symptoms:

  • Headache which is bad
  • Irregular breathing
  • Nausea
  • Mild weakness

3. Serious Symptoms:

  • Slight swelling of hands and face
  • Cannot stand upright without swaying while eyes are closed.
  • Can hear gurgling sound in the chest.
  • Zero energy.

What to do about Altitude Sickness?Altitude illness can be prevented by acclimatization; that is, by a graduate rate of ascent (not more than 400 – 500 meters), allowing sufficient rest at various intermediate altitudes. The dry air of the mountains tends to dehydrate you so an increased fluid intake is necessary. Try to drink at least four liters of water a day. On the trail you can drink hot garlic soup that will help you to some extent. When we reach to our destination it is better to make some hiking up to a bit higher point and come down to the camp or hotel. This is a really good way to get acclimatization. You may take Diamox 250mg tablets the night before flying / going to altitude. Sometimes the symptoms often disappear and the trek can be resumed.

If you feel obviously suffering from the serious symptoms of AMS then descent should not be delayed even if it means going down in dark. In such case, should an emergency situation arise, horse, or porter will be arranged; or we carry you and run to lower (descend) altitudes. We can arrange for immediate evacuation, by horse or helicopter, depending on the severity of the case.
