Emergency and support:
All of our guides are trained in basic first aid and they can deal with basic ailments that may occur on trek. In the event of an emergency Visit Himalaya treks will cover initial expenses of any rescue operation. It is however a compulsory booking condition that you are adequately insured for such an event, as these expenses will need to be recovered from your Travel insurance company. In the more frequent regions there are health posts, which have been established by foreign doctors and many of those are staffed by overseas personnel.
Altitude sickness often known as ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS (A.M.S.) may in general occur when people ascend too quickly in altitudes above 3000 m. We insure minimal risk by building in rest days into our trekking itineraries. It is common to feel some effect of the altitude such as shortness of breath and/or light headedness.
A.M.S. is quite different and it involves severe headaches, sickness and loss of awareness. In almost every potential case there are enough warning signs to allow for appropriate action. Descending to a lower altitude will generally be enough to prevent any further problems.

Become responsible traveler
Visiting a developing country like Nepal and trekking in the Himalayas presents a number of health’s and safety hazards that can be avoided a little care and attention. It is not advisable to trek alone, do not hire staff through hotels, “independent guides” we strongly suggest catch service through an affiliated Trekking Agent.
Please make sure you pack out all of your trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed in restaurants. Bring the trash to the nearest truck-accessible road for the most proper disposal available.
Trekkers are also asked to refrain from relying on bottled water, since there is nowhere to dispose of the used bottles. Filtering or treating your water will reduce the amount of trash left behind in this fragile environment. Iodine pills are a cheap, lightweight solution.
Take the time to look at the pollution and lack of trash management all around you, from the trash-clogged rivers in the cities to the mounds of discarded beer bottles in the mountain villages. This is a country struggling with its rapid Westernization and hasn’t yet figured out how to dispose of its waste. Don’t contribute to the problem anymore than necessary!
Our effort for minimum environmental impact
We make sure all our trash, including bottles and cans from goods consumed is properly managed. On camping trips, all our activities are designed to have the minimum of impacts on the environment. We believe to leave only footprints behind us whenever trekking in the wilder and higher elevations. Even all the papers and materials used in our office in Kathmandu are also environment friendly.
We believe in responsible tourism
We strictly believe in practicing responsible tourism and all our trekking staffs have been strictly following this very module. Responsible Tourism
