Altitude sickness can develop at elevations exceeding 2,400 meters (7,874 feet) and can affect people of any age, gender, or fitness level.

Headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, exhaustion, loss of appetite, and difficulty sleeping are some of the symptoms of AMS, which can range from mild to severe. In severe circumstances, AMS can cause High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) or High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE), both of which can be fatal if not treated.

It is necessary to ascend gently to allow your body to adjust to the higher altitude and avoid altitude sickness. Drinking plenty of water, avoiding alcohol and smoking, and eating small, high-carbohydrate meals are also advised. In the case of mild symptoms, relaxation and medication can help relieve them. If the symptoms persist or worsen, you must descend to a lower altitude and seek medical treatment.

                                        Excellent Trekking in Langtang

                                        I did a great sole trekking trip with Trekking Planner for 21 days in Langtang Valley. The whole planning was really good. I could change the itinerary anytime I wanted without any problems which I did. The owner, Dipak, planned the trekking very well and was not a rushed service as I went at my own pace. Everything was perfectly organized and he helped me with everything I needed from the first days in Katmandu. Our guide, Narayan, was really great, he did a professional job and I had a lot of fun with him. When I changed the plan during the trekking they was no problem at all.

                                        I was totally happy with Dipak and Narayan and I would choose them for sure again.
