When you book a trip through Beyond Base Camp Treks we require that you obtain a travel insurance policy. We recommend your insurance includes medical coverage for high altitude, emergency repatriation, trip cancellation and other travel mishaps (e.g. flight cancellations or delays, trip interruption, or loss of luggage and personal effects). The medical and emergency repatriation are compulsory for your trip. Medical care in the Himalayas is remote and the coverage in your insurance will ensure the best care and transport should an emergency arise. Altitude Sickness is a very real possibility, although our guides are trained to detect and help curb the effects, it is never a guarantee that you may not suffer some serious symptoms that require medical attentions.

Altitude sickness, also called Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS), is a group of general symptoms that are brought on by rapidly climbing or walking to a higher altitude too quickly. It happens because the body doesn’t have enough time to adapt to the lower air pressure and lower oxygen level in the air at high altitudes. Altitude sickness can affect anyone and does not discriminate by age, sex, or general health. We try to manage and minimize the effects of altitude sickness by building in acclimatization days during the treks above 3000m. Most people will experience some common effects of altitude including shortness of breathe and lightheadedness. Your trained guide will monitor you daily and it is important to be honest about any effects of altitude you may be feeling, signs of mountain sickness typically present with enough advanced notice that we can minimize severe symptoms.

There are three stages of AMS:
1) Normal AMS symptoms- expect but no worries
2) Mild AMS symptoms- Don’t go higher
3) Serious AMS symptoms- Decent immediate

Please Note: Also our guide will carry the first-aid kit bag during the trek. However, we still recommend you to bring your personal first-aid kit as well

The flight from Kathmandu to Lukla is an experience that you will soon not forget. The Lukla airport is unique because it is situated between two mountains and requires a skilled pilot to land safely. The planes are also small but do not let this frighten you, the flight is generally safe. Weather in the mountains is unpredictable and this may cause flight delays and cancellations. If this were to occur we will try our best to book you on the earliest flight the following day. On rare occasions the poor weather has caused delays for a few days up to a week. We recommend that you plan for a few extra days at the end of your trek to accommodate alternative travel that would include a two day trek to Salleri and then a 10 hour Jeep ride to Kathmandu. If this is not a suitable option due to time or desire you may also charter a helicopter from Lukla to Kathmandu. A helicopter charter typically costs $400 to $600 pp, although when demand increases and availability decreases the cost has been know to increase. The most cost effective way to charter a helicopter is to share amongst 5 or 6 people. If all seats are not occupied you will have to pay for the unused seats. As always, we will keep our fingers crossed for good weather and no delays!
