About Trip:

Annapurna Circuit Trek is a grand excursion encircling the Annapurna Conservation Area. It begins from the lower altitude of the Marshyangdi River valley, goes through the ethnic communities and cross over the world’s highest Himalayan pass, which is known as the Thorung La Pass (5416 meters). Round Annapurna Trek combines the Annapurna region and beyond of it.

After sightseeing in the Kathmandu valley, you drive to Bhulbhule and start the foot hill excursion. The cascading waterfalls and sub-tropical forests are fabulous. Numerous ethnical villages as Pisang and Manang are culturally loaded and highly influenced by the Tibetan Buddhism. Monasteries and Chhortens are prevailed on the trail of Annapurna Circuit Trek. The treeless region begins as you are about to reach the Thorung Phedi. Climbing the Thorung high pass is a bit challenging as the climbing trail is steep and slippery. Reaching the top of the Thorung pass, you will be blessed with the majestic views of Mt. Annapurna, Manaslu, Nilgiri and the neighboring snow-capped peaks .

The descending trail is also technical and leads you to Muktinath temple, a highly venerated sacred place for both Hindus and Buddhists. The trek continues through the Kali Gandaki valley and the deepest gorge of the world. From Tatopani, the trail splits to Ghorepani and trek leads you to to the phenomenal view-point of Poon Hill. Sunrise over Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, Himchuli and others can be seen stunning. With the snow-capped mountains all around, it is undoubtly a photographer's paradise. Walking through the rhododendron forest, you reach to Nayapul and conclude the trek.

Rating:  

Last summer, I went to Nepal with friends to trek. I met Nir who‘s a really good trekking guide. He was really nice, reliable and knowledgeable. He cares about everything during the trek : accomodation, food, travel from Kathmandu to the first step of trek... Moreover his website is clear and attractive. He answers quickly to messages. This was a great eperience, thanks to Marvel Adventure.

4. Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness, also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), is a pathological effect of high altitude on humans, caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. It commonly occurs above 3000 meters. It presents as a collection of nonspecific symptoms, acquired at high altitude or in low air pressure, resembling a case of "flu, carbon monoxide poisoning, or a hangover". However, most people can ascend to 3000 meters without difficulty.

Primary Symptoms of Altitude Sickness:

  • Lack of appetite, nausea, or vomiting
  • Fatigue or weakness
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness
  • Swelling of hands, feet, and face
  • Insomnia
  • Shortness of breath upon exertion
  • Nosebleed
  • Persistent rapid pulse
  • Drowsiness
  • General malaise

Prevention:

Ascending slowly is the best way to avoid altitude sickness. Avoiding strenuous activity such as skiing, hiking, etc. in the first 24 hours at high altitude reduces the symptoms of AMS. Alcohol and sleeping pills are respiratory depressants, and thus slow down the acclimatization process and should be avoided. Alcohol also tends to cause dehydration and exacerbates AMS. Thus, Marvel Adventure strictly suggests avoiding alcohol consumption in the first 24–48 hours at a higher altitude.

Guides and porters from Marvel Adventure are very much familiar with this problem due to their experience. All of them are trained with basic medical trainings and hence they definitely can help you.
