Holy Mt. Kailash - Mansarovar Yatra

Health, Fitness & Insurance

Start your physical fitness program several weeks before starting the journey. Walking, hiking and back packing over rugged terrain are the best ways to prepare for a trek any regular regime of strenuous aerobic exercise is also beneficial as also running, swimming and cycling prior to departure.

As some areas in Tibet, especially in the higher regions have a rarified atmosphere and could lead to breathing problems. In addition to the normal medications for traveling recommended by your doctor, you should bring some thing to prevent symptoms of acute mountain sickness. Altitude Mountain Sickness -is basically lack of oxygen at heights over 2500 mts. The major cause for AMS is the speed with which one makes the ascent. Even when one is acclimatized to a given height one can still get ill when climbing higher. Nausea, breathlessness, head ache and dizziness are common irritability and loss of appetite is common symptoms of AMS. Acclimatization is hampered by rapid ascent where necessary a few days of rest help. Take time to acclimatize, drink lots of water, consumption of light food with high carbohydrate content is also advisable and bring purification tablets.

People suffering from heart, diabetes, asthma, lung and kidney, high blood pressure are known to have trekked successfully in Tibet, but before traveling to Tibet one should consult a physician and medical advice on precautions to be taken in case of problems erupting on the way.

Tibet's high altitude and the atmosphere allow the sun's solar radiation to strike the earth with unusual intensity at all times of year can cause Sun burn - It is easy to get sun burn in Tibet. Sunscreen lotion (U.V.lotion) is a must to avoid sunburn good quality lotion will contain sun protection factor (SPF). To protect your eyes and skin, bring a sunhat (A wide brimmed hat), sunglasses (Preferably without a metal frame), lip balm, zinc-oxide cream to provide 100% block-out.

In the event of an emergency, the hospitals and clinics are primarily located in the large cities. There is no emergency helicopter service in Tibet. If anybody requires evacuation, he or she will take to the nearest road head. A basic first -aid kit is provided in the support truck. However, one should carry one's own personal medication and basic first - aid material as well.

INSURANCE & EMERGENCY EXPENSES: We suggest that clients insure themselves against a comprehensive claim policy. Which should also include Helicopter Evacuation if necessary. (Comprehensive Insurance Policy may be taken in Kathmandu. You may ask our Kathmandu representative to assist in this regard).

Please note that our Kailash Tour Package does not include any rescue or evacuation expenses in emergenices. Any Emergency arrangement other than regular straight forward tour itinerary service should be borne by the client themselves.
