Safety

Climbing Everest does not come without its difficulties. In fact, you’re more likely to get into MENSA than make it up to the summit and back safely, so it is essential to take extra precautions to ensure your safety.

First of all, make sure that you are accompanied by a guide at all times and always, always let other people know what your plans are so that someone will know if you are missing. Stick to the high side on the route and get regular weather updates to stay ahead of any changes in wind direction and conditions.

It’s important to remember that avalanches are likely to occur after a bout of heavy snowfall. Avoid trekking when snow is predicted or following an earthquake to minimize your risk.

Altitude sickness is a real danger in Nepal. It happens when the body does not get enough oxygen to allow the body to function normally. Cut back on sugar, walk slowly uphill and stay as hydrated as possible to minimize the effects.

A guide to Trekking in Nepal will provide you with a lifetime’s worth of memories, just remember to pack the right equipment, choose the right route and take all of the safety precautions to ensure that you have the best possible time.

 

How to Prepare for Your First Trek

How to Prepare for Your First Trek

Caption: Nepal is mainly located in the Himalayas, so it is an ideal destination for adventure seekers.

Reduce Your Stress Levels 

It is easy to feel more than a little stressed at the prospect of an upcoming trek. In addition to leaving behind your responsibilities at home or work, you must ensure you have packed the right gear for your adventure. What’s more, you’ll have to live a rather basic life on your travels while focusing on remaining both safe and healthy. It is, therefore, imperative to find ways to reduce your stress levels prior to a trek, which will ensure you adopt the right mindset when heading off on a trail. For this reason, you must mentally and physically prepare for a journey by looking for ways to unwind.     

For example, you should relax in a hot bubble bath with a good book, which is a home comfort you could miss along the route. You could also use your free time to tune into your favorite sports while you can, especially as you might have limited access to a TV or game news when tackling a challenging hike. For instance, you can distract your mind by placing a wager on an upcoming sporting event, such as the Grand National, Wimbledon, or Euro 2020.    

Alternatively, you could relax in your comfortable bed by watching a Netflix series or YouTube videos on your smartphone. You’ll feel a million miles away from these creature comforts when you’re hiking the Himalayas, traveling through Nepal or tackling the Inca Trail.

Mentally Prepare for Basic Living Conditions 

Comfortable beds, hot showers, and running water might be hard to come by on your trail. To avoid a culture shock, you would be smart to familiarise yourself with the basic living conditions you can expect during a trek, which could help you to mentally prepare for an adventure. It might also help to push through a challenge by taking a few home comforts with you, such as your favorite snacks.  

Enjoy a Healthy Diet is the best tips for how to prepare for your first trek.  

The last thing you will want is to feel unwell during a trek, which could prevent you from completing a trail and ticking the challenge off your bucket list. To prevent illness, you must enjoy a healthy diet prior to trekking, which will ensure you are fit and well from day one of your adventure. You also can prevent sickness and muscle aches during a trek by drinking bottled or boiled water, regularly using a hand sanitizer and monitoring your posture.  

So, if you want to feel both physically and mentally ready for an upcoming trek, you’d be wise to follow the above tips for how to prepare for your first trek.
