Acute Mountain Sickness is caused by your body’s reaction to a shortage of oxygen. Some people start to feel the effects of altitude sickness from 2800 meters. The symptoms are first noticeable in the brain or lungs and include headache, loss of appetite, nausea, coughing, and fatigue. Admit to the rest of your symptoms, don’t continue climbing higher to sleep. If the condition gets worse while resting, descent to a lower altitude. Rest until you feel better and then continue upwards slowly. Stop your trek not your life if necessary. Tell your guide if you are not feeling well and act on his advice. The prescription drug, Diamox can assist with the prevention of AMS symptoms. It is a diuretic that increases respiratory rate and breathing depth(also urine flow), assisting acclimatization by reducing headaches, nausea, and improving sleep. Take 1/2 a tablet 125mg or 250mg in 12 hours(fingers and feet may tingle, don’t worry)

With the range in altitudes in the Himalayas, weather prediction is notoriously difficult to expect the unexpected. Beautiful days, warm in the sun is followed by colder nights. From 1000-3500m temperatures may be 5o to 20oc, higher up they may be -10o to 20oc and above 5000m -15o to 20oc. Wind chill causes temperatures to plummet. Winter temperatures are commonly 10oc lower. Rain or snow can arrive without warning, throughout the year.

The cities, villages, and trails are everywhere safe. Courtesy and kindness are universal.
