It is illegal to export objects over 100 years old (sacred images, paintings, manuscripts) that are valued for culture and religious reasons. Visitors are advised not to purchase such items as they are Nepal's cultural heritage and belong here.

High Altitude sickness:

 

Whilst on the trek, one can suffer mild to serious symptoms of high altitude sickness which is also known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS).

Symptoms of AMS can appear at altitude above 300 meters. As we ascend in the mountain, air pressure becomes thin and consequently the amount of available oxygen also falls. Adequate acclimatization is always recommended in the mountain. Plenty of daily liquid intake is essential to minimize AMS effect. Our trekking team crews also carry First aid Kit along with them. In case of any difficulty When trekking in the Himalayas, you will be suggested to halt the trek rest at the guesthouse or if the symptoms cause any serious concern, it is necessary to descend to the lower altitude. In case of emergency, you will be immediately airlifted to Kathmandu city for further treatment.
