Guides & Porters on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek. 

It is highly recommended that you have a guide with you. Hiring a porter depends on what kind of a trek you are going. Guides can help you in every aspect of the trek. They can guide you through the routes as well as help you with any emergencies. Guides are like companions for your trek. They don’t just carry out their tasks as guides but help you with the lodges and all communication tasks so that everything is smooth. They will keep you on schedule and make sure everything is going according to plan. The number of guides and porters depends on the group you have. The larger the group, the more porters and guides are required.

Most guides will also be trained in first aid procedures and basic medical and life aid. There will most likely be small medical shops around the villages, which can help you with the primary treatment and common medicines. You can easily find hospitals at lower altitudes.

Altitude Sickness on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

One of the risks of traveling to high altitude is altitude sickness. When you travel at high altitudes, the oxygen density lowers. To keep going, you have to maintain a slow and steady pace exerting minimum pressure on your body. The biggest threat of altitude sickness is that it cannot be cured or gotten rid of instantly. Symptoms of altitude sickness include shortness of breath, fatigue, insomnia, headache, nausea etc. If you experience any of these, stop your trek and take some medications or descend right away. Medications such as Diamox can help you in dire situations. By staying hydrated, getting adequate rest and acclimatizing to the location you can avoid altitude complications. If such cases do arise, consult with the trek guide to take further actions.

Acclimatization on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

Acclimatization is an absolutely necessary part of any high altitude travel. This is the only way your body can deal with the increase in altitude. Acclimatization helps your body produce more red blood cells, this increases the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood thus making your body adjust to the altitude change. This process can require up to hours and even days. But it is best to not take any risk and give your body the maximum amount of rest you can. You are recommended to spend at least one night or more at every checkpoint for acclimatization. This will be just enough to lower the risk of any disease you can get at high altitudes. 

Best Season to travel on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

You need to know when the best time to go traveling is, it is one of the most important things you will have to prepare before leaving. By choosing the best dates to travel, you will minimize the risks of slippery trails and weather issues. You never know when it might rain or the views might get interrupted by fog. The best possible season to travel is the autumn season. Typically occurring around early October till early December, this will be the best season to go traveling around this region. During this time, the trails become dry, and views become clear. You will also have minimum chances of bad weather.

Insurance & Rescue on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

Insurance is one of the key things you must have covered if you are traveling at high altitudes. Usually, your travel insurance policy does not easily cover high altitude travels. While traveling at high altitudes you may face health issues and require immediate medical attention or even a rescue operation. You will need a rescue team to carry you to the nearest hospital. Sometimes, helicopter rescue services are required too. As such facilities can be really expensive, it is best to have insurance to cover all of these charges. You can find insurance providers who also cover your insurance at high altitudes.

Booking & Payments on Tamang Heritage Trail Trek.

You will find plenty of travel agencies who have varieties of offers for a Tamang Heritage Trail Trek at decent prices.
