Trip Description


Annapurna Base Camp is a worthwhile exploration to the immensely beautiful landscape surround by the magnificent peaks Annapurna I (8091 m), Annapurna South (7219 m), Machapuchhre (6993 m) and Hiunchuli (6441).

The western Nepal offers verities of landscape with welcoming culture, where Annapurna region lies. Annapurna is the most popular trekking region of Nepal and encounters by 50% and above tourists every years. The beautiful landscapes, the gorgeous mountain views, dense vegetation of rhododendrons, bamboos and giant firs throughout the trial are luring beauties of the trek. Apart from these, the rock strewn steep trials, rushing rivers, deep waterfalls and the exceptionally unique cultural practices in the villages mostly dominated by Gurung inhabitants is  equally worthwhile to explore. As the trek comes closer to the Annapurna Base Camp the improving views of the wide range of Himalayas and the cool Himalayan breeze provides the sensational joys. Every moment the trek rewards with the worthwhile watch. It may be culture, landscapes or the pleasant weather. Annapurna Conservation Area Project has the lead role in preserving the floras, faunas, wild lives, and fragile nature of the region. The conserved area includes both the Base Camps Machapucchre and Annapurna. The trek in the region is also particularly popular because the trial also takes you the famous trekking peaks of Nepal including Tent Peak, Fluted Peak and Hiunchuli.

In addition, if you have limited time and wish to enjoy natural beauties, enhance cultural experiences; you could join our Annapurna Base Camp Trek-10 Days.

You can cure at right time knowing certain symptoms of Altitude Sickness. Common symptoms are headache, loss of appetite, tiredness and nausea, vomiting, dizziness and difficulty in sleeping. The best remedies that local belief and take is taking garlic, or ginger in mouth. Eat dry food and take liquid as much as possible. We recommend Diamox if there is no any options.  Also, we provide experienced guide and staffs in dealing with the effects of higher altitudes. As they are natives of Nepal, they easily acclimatize and therefore can care for their clients. They are equipped with necessary medical supplies and will assist with basic first aid treatment.

Acclimatization

While, trekking in the Himalayas, you will walk in the Ups down trail taking you to the elevation over 2500 m. Hence, you might feel difficult to breathe or your breathe speed up. Hence, it is most important to familiarize with the altitude and let you adjust with the decreased availability of oxygen at high altitude. Our itinerary is designed with sufficient days to acclimatize. In case of gaining certain height, there is a rest day when you can explore the area as well as walk to high altitude and sleep at low land. Likewise, you are suggested to walk slowly and carefully without getting any stresses. Also, for proper acclimatization, you should care about your eating habits. Don’t focus on Junk food and eat as much liquid as possible. Hard drinks are not recommended. The right way to acclimatize properly is walk high, sleep low. 

Diamox (Acetazolamide)

Diamox, a mostly recognized drugs for altitude sickness prevention and treatment. It allows you to breathe faster so that you metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. While using a Diamox, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before you go to altitude and continue for at least five days at higher altitude. The recommendation of the Himalayan Rescue Association Medical Clinic is 125 mg. twice a day (morning and night). (The standard dose was 250 mg. but their research showed no difference for most people with the lower dose, although some individuals may need 250 mg.) Possible side effects include tingling of the lips and finger tips, blurring of vision, and alteration of taste. These side effects may be reduced with the 125 mg. dose. Side effects subside when the drug is stopped. It is more appropriate to contact your physician for a prescription. Since Diamox is a sulfonamide drug, people who are allergic to sulfa drugs should not take Diamox. Diamox has also been known to cause severe allergic reactions to people with no previous history of Diamox or sulfa allergies. Frank Hubbell of SOLO recommends a trial course of the drug before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat.

Highly recommended to take a trial course before going to a remote location where a severe allergic reaction could prove difficult to treat if it occurred.

Alternative Drugs:

Dexamethasone (a steroid) is also a prescribed drug that decreases brain and other swelling reversing the effects of AMS. The dose is typically 4 mg twice a day for a few days starting with the ascent. This prevents most of the symptoms of altitude illness from developing.

ADVICE:

Dexamethasone is a powerful drug and should be used with caution and only on the advice of a physician and should only be used to aid acclimatization by sufficiently qualified persons or those with the necessary experience of its use.

NOTE:

It is more advisable to take drugs taking proper suggestions from Personal Physicians and in case if there is no any options. In the Himalayas of Nepal, the mountain dwellers believe in taking some garlic or ginger along with Red Pepper to produce heat for fast breathings.
