A general study says that you start to feel altitude sickness above the height of Eight Thousand (8000) feet. So, the risk of developing altitude sickness is also not so high. This is why even teenagers can opt for this trek. Anyone who wants to experience a trek having only weekends in hand must opt for this trek.

 

  • It is snow-clad from the middle of December to the middle of March. At this point in time, the weather is very cold and the trek is difficult from the rest of the season. Life will come to a standstill witnessing the amazing landscapes snow-clad mountains all around you.

There’s a saying – If you walk comfortable and regular, you are not in the mountains. This trek is a perfect reminder of this saying. After all, it’s not the mountains we conquer but ultimately ourselves.

 

  • Every trek teaches you a lesson and also tends to change your perspective about life and nature. The main objective is to keep climbing even when you know there are high probabilities of falling down. The higher you advance to get closer to the summit, the more spectacular the view you get. Similarly, the higher you go from small things in life by keeping your ego aside, you are exposed to the most alluring experience about life and people. It’s too difficult to achieve this but if we manage to pull this, our shoes would be in the ground and our head would be at the top, then life would be better and more beautiful than before.

38. What is AMS? How to prevent it?

During the Nag Tibba or any other trek or any other mountain expedition, we are ought to travel to high altitudes. As we ascend, due to change in elevation, there is a change in various other factors such as temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, radiation, and oxygen saturation. The temperature and atmospheric pressure gradually fall down and the ultraviolet(UV) radiation increases with an increase in altitude. Moreover, the humidity and oxygen level tends to lower down. These changes have an adverse effect on our body and sometimes our body fails to withstand it. Due to these changes, there arises a condition called altitude sickness or Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS). The prevention tips are:

  • You should always try to ascend a mountain as slowly as possible.
  • It will be good if you plan a few extra days and spend it acclimatizing after every 3000 feet.
  • Before starting to ascend, make sure you have a day of rest and a night of tight sleep.
  • Drink plenty of water
  • Eat with proper guidelines. Avoid non-vegetarian food at high altitudes. Also, avoid alcohol and caffeinated products
