Normally while walking in lower elevation steadily, taking enough acclimatization days we can avoid chance of acute mountain sickness however we cannot totally avoid mountain sickness instead we can lower the chance of occurrence by following some rules and paying lot attention for personal hygiene. Since the remote mountain area are not facilitated by motor roads and modern hospital so incase of strong mountain sickened one and only option is to descend as down as possible which is feasible with use of helicopters only. Such kind of expenses in high elevation area extremely off the edge and cannot be offered easily as sometime cost more than one million rupees, so it is better to have a personal health insurance. As we do not deal with such kind of health insurance but we do have good enough information about insurance providing company as some deal very quickly promptly for case where as some try to avoid and create some unnecessary delays in evacuation process. So as per need of information we will let you know some good provider from your region so that it will be easy in worse case in mountains.
High altitude sickness
Often known as acute mountain sickness are most dangerous things and any one can be victim of AMS apart from their physical strength. There is no such specific medicine for AMS so one needs to be careful from beginning. Major Symptom of AMS is dizziness, vomiting, nausea, and loss of appetite, weakness and insomnia so in order to rid of AMS major thing is to drink plenty of water and enough acclimatization in high alpine area. Although our crew leader will have adequate first aid medicine and kit sometimes one might need to cancel the trip and descend down in case of increasing symptom of AMS and in case of emergency situation clients will be airlifted immediately for further treatment in hospital at Kathmandu.
