 Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)

Altitude sickness, often known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a particularly important medical consideration while trekking in Nepal. Altitude Mountain sickness means the effect of altitude on those who ascend too rapidly to elevations above 3000 meters. The initial symptoms of AMS are as follows:

  1. Nausea, vomiting
  2. Loss of appetite
  3. Sleeplessness/ Insomnia
  4. Persistent headache
  5. Dizziness, lightheadedness, confusion
  6. Disorientation, drunken gait
  7. Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs
  8. Slight swelling of hands and face
  9. Breathlessness and Breathing irregularity
  10. Reduced urine output

These symptoms are to be taken very seriously. In case of an appearance of any of the above symptoms any further ascent should be avoided otherwise more serious, even life-threatening problems can happen. The only cure for Altitude Sickness is to descend to lower elevations immediately. Acclimatization by ascending to no more than 300 to 500 meters per day above 3000 meters, and the proper amount of rest and dehydrations are the best methods for the prevention of AMS.

If you follow the simple advice of your trained guide, you won’t have to worry about complications from mountain sickness. We design our tours to ensure clients are ready for high altitudes and arrange alternative Itineraries for those at risk.

Thanking you we can arrange the best trek without the risk of altitude sickness.

Although trekking in Nepal can be organized throughout the year, September through May is considered to be the best month for trekking. Summer months of the year which coincide with monsoon begin in mid-June and drains in mid-September making travel wet and warm. The mountain views may not be at their best as rain clouds and haze overhang the mountains occasionally obscure the enchanting views. These times are blessed for the keen botanist as the higher valleys and meadows blossom with flowers and lush vegetation. Get the best Nepal Trekking Information with HVT.

During monsoon, it does not mean that it will rain every day. Besides, some of the most frequented trails will not be crowded, and some people like it that way. It can actually be enjoyed in the upper part of the Annapurna circuit around Marfa, Jomsom, and Muktinath as the monsoon does not get in this trans- Himalayan area because they fall into a rain shadow area. Note: – It is recommended to carry insect repellent when trekking during the summer months.

Best Time of the Year

Trekking is possible at any time of the year depending on where you are going. The most popular seasons are spring (February-May) and autumn (September-December). Winter is very cold above 4000m. And high mountain passes may be snowbound, but it is good for trekking at lower altitudes. During the monsoon season (June-August), you can trek in the rain-shadow areas north of the Himalayan like the Mustang, upper Manang, and Dolpo. These places are out of reach of the rain clouds because of the high mountains and are unaffected by the monsoon.

Entrance Permit 

Annapurna Area Conservation Project ACAP Permit RS 3000 per person if you are from SAARC country then RS 1000
TIMS – US$ 20 per person if you are from a SAARC country then US$ 10
