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.

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.

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.

Response: We’d depend on walkie-talkies and sprinters to communicate between the campgrounds and the base camps.

Doing the squats can help. Goal for 3 sets of 15 repetitions without fail. You can begin with 8 squats in each set at the beginning, subject to your core strength for the exercise.
