Trekveda, by dint of its team of trained professionals, leave no stone unturned to provide you with the best trekking experience while ensuring your safety as its priority. Here are some vital aspects that Trekveda includes in its checklist to ensure the safety of its trekkers.

Criteria for Fitness Analysis

Trekking at high altitudes demands endurance and fitness and those who are prone to any kind of physical or physiological ailments are advised to not to go for high altitude treks in the beginning. To get assurance about the trekker’s fitness, we comply with certain aspects of the being fit such as BMI (Body Mass Index) along with the fitness proof since we can’t put the trekkers into the risk.

Acclimatization is another important aspect when it comes to getting an adaptation to the climate at the high range treks. A day at rest is not just the rest but a chance to get used to of the place and its habitat.

Monitoring the health is one thing that is conducted regularly during the trek by the trek leaders which includes the monitoring of your blood pressure, oxygen level and pulse rate. Details of your health during the trek is maintained in the health card on the regular basis. Health card can be collected from the trek leader at the end of the trek.

Medical Kit for High Range Trekking

An ideal medical kit that’s developed for the trekking has Blood Pressure Monitor/checker, Stature, Oxygen checker and Oxygen Cylinder coupled up with certain must have medicines, in case of medical emergency:

  •  Diamox
  •  Dexamethasone
  •  Dexamethasone
  •  Nifidipine
  •  Asthalin Inhaler
  •  Syringes

Trekking Equipment for High Altitudes

Trekveda provide you all the necessary equipment for trekking from tents to ropes. In addition to that, our trek leaders also ensure the safety by various safeguards they take time to time for your safety. Micro spikes are provided to attach to your shoes which help you to keep the traction on the snow and make it easier to climb. An additional gaiters are provided to cover the shows which prevent the entering of snow into the shoes. Customized tents are provided to the trekkers which ensure the warmth and temperature 10 degrees higher than the outside coupled up with high quality sleeping bags which can endure the temperature up to 15 degree Celsius below the freezing point.

Nutrition and Hydration

Trekveda, keep all your nutritional and hydration requirements on its checklist, our trek leaders will guide you to keep your body hydrated on the high altitudes as de-hydration can attract to the severe medical emergencies on high altitude treks.

We provide the highly nutritious meal to energize your body for the trek, however before certain long trails we ensure your nutritional requirements to be fulfilled with some high energy snacks or packaged lunch.

Make sure you keep up with your hydration and nutritional part as this can lead to some fatal consequences for your health.

In case of any symptoms you feel during the trek, don’t ignore or avoid them, immediately tell the trek leader.

Keeping up with the pre-defined processes and the guidelines will help you to have a memorable trekking experience.

What Trekveda has to offer in case of medical emergency like AMS, HAPE or HACE?

In case of medical emergencies, Trekveda and its trek leaders bear the sole responsibility to get you back to your wellbeing with their training and techniques. Suspecting any physiological disturbance in your body, immediately report to your trek leader as they are trained to counter such problems.

Problems like Acute Mountain Sickness can be prove fatal if not taken into consideration seriously on time. If you encounter/experience any of the symptoms such as persistent headache, fatigue or weakness, nausea, dizziness, loss of appetite, difficulty in sleeping, you shouldn’t let it go or treat it by your own either.

Acute mountain sickness is one of the most common yet the fatal problem trekkers face due to number of reasons, if the problem continues to persist, then you’re advised to descend down to the basecamp and then to visit the doctor immediately.

People with AMS are treated with number of medicines such Diamox, Nifidipine etc. coupled up with methods like Triple One Test- where one disprin is given with a liter of water along with the rest for an hour.

While AMS is most common at the high altitudes yet it can’t be risked taken casually as it leads to severe fatal conditions like HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema) or HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema) which, if not treated on time can lead to number of serious chronic disorders. These conditions need to not to comply with AMS, they can occur without AMS preceding.

It’s suggested to take every single disturbance into the consideration while you’re on the trek.

However, Trekveda is capable of tackling all the medical emergencies with its trained professionals yet there are several things that you need to consider, specially the intake of medicines and the knowledge about their advantages and side-effects. Don’t administer the medicine if you’re trekking through an organization, always seek help from the trek leaders, they are trained for such purposes, while in case of being a solo trekker, you should know about the medicines.

Keeping yourself hydrated and nutritionally fulfilled curbs the chances of AMS.

Risk and Response

A high altitude trek requires an audacious state of mind, however leaving on a bold excursion without computing the dangers is absolute idiocy. That is the reason we have recorded a couple of Risk and the Response arranged by Trekveda to limit or address the dangers in the most ideal way.

Risk: Altitude

Before you begin the trek, it is critical to comprehend the ramifications of high altitude on your body. Know about side effects of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mellow cerebral pain, queasiness and general distress.

Response: If you feel any of these indications, illuminate the trek pioneer on need and take after his directions. Each campground has as stretcher, completely prepared medical aid pack, oxygen chambers to address the circumstance.

Risk: Weather

Weather is unusual in the Himalayas. Despite the fact that we are constantly attentive about the evolving climate, nobody can ensure a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do comprehend that your security is of most extreme significance to us and we won't continue any further from the campground if the climate isn't ideal.

Response: The choice of the Trek Leaders and Guides to continue or sit tight for the climate to show signs of improvement will be last.

Risk: Injuries

Often, while trekking over troublesome territories, you may have minor wounds like leg sprain, wounds and so forth. Genuine wounds like breaks or real cuts are exceptionally uncommon.

Response: All our Trek Leaders are Certified Wilderness First Aid responders. They are prepared to deal with crises and can handle minor wounds with an all-around prepared medical aid unit. If there should arise an occurrence of genuine wounds, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the closest street head and is directed to closest therapeutic focus.

Risk: Lack of Communication

In the remote zones of the Himalayas, portable systems don't reach. On a trek, one is cut off from the universe of calls, SMS or WhatsApp Messages.
