                          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.

                            I would highly recommend this tour and Nir as a guide to anywhere in Nepal. I had Nir for an Everest Base Camp expedition and he was an excellent guide! Very friendly, knowledgeable, approachable and cared about our health and well-being throughout. He accommodated to the pace that the group felt like traveling at which made it more enjoyable for everyone and never pushed. The locations that we stayed at were clean and comfortable and had excellent food options all the way to the top. His number one priority is you and will make that happen no matter what! Definitely worth checking this tour out and I guarantee you won't regret it! Trust me, I am picky when it comes to tour companies and organized groups but this was a good one!

                            Completed the EBC trek and beyond. It was an incredible, life-altering experience. There is no greater beauty than the Himalayan mountains. As for Marvel Adventure, Nir is the best guide on those mountains. Every night we would plan our route, and Nir knows exactly how to estimate times, breaks, what to eat, what not to eat, oxygen levels, etc. He is incredibly knowledgeable and experienced. I can't emphasize enough how important it is to have an experienced guide who is trustworthy, as this is not an easy expedition. Not only did Nir look after us and share with us the greatest trek of our lives, he introduced us to off the beaten path unique experiences, like having tea with Sherpas who summited Everest on some of the most famous expeditions in history. Upon return to Kathmandu, we all agreed, trekking through the Himalayas with Marvel Adventure was the best decision we've ever made.
