Medical advice

Trekking in Nepal need not to be considered a risky affair as far as your health is concerned. However, very little medical care along the trail is available, so make sure you are physically fit and healthy before departing. In case of serious illness or injury, prompt evacuation to Kathmandu is the best remedy. Helicopter rescue service is extremely expensive, thus in the event of an emergency, full insurance cover is an essential component of your trip. Neither the Nepalese government, your embassy or the trekking agency is responsible for the bill. Therefore, you are requested to insure for rescue operation also.
Altitude sickness: Often known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is particularly important medical consideration while trekking in Nepal. Altitude sickness means the effect of altitude on those who ascend too rapidly to elevation above 3000 m. The initial symptoms of AMS are as following: Nausea, vomiting; Loss of appetite; Insomnia / Sleeplessness; Persistent headache; Dizziness, lightheadedness, confusion; Disorientation, drunken gait; Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs; Slight swelling of hands and face; Breathlessness and breathing irregularity; Reduced urine output. These symptoms are to be taken very seriously. In case of appearance of any of the above symptoms any further ascent should be reconsidered, otherwise More serious problem can occur which can even cause death sometimes within a few hours. The only cure for the altitude sickness is to descend to lower elevations immediately and it has no other cure or substitute. Acclimatization by ascending to no More than 300 to 500 meters per day above 3000 meters and the proper amount of rest are the best methods for prevention of AMS.
