Health & Safety
For more information about Health & Safety while trekking in Nepal and medical provision in the mountains, see here.
Please make sure you let the Moving Mountains team know of any pre-existing medical conditions or any concerns you have. Before you go, also make sure you speak to your GP or travel health clinic and receive all the relevant immunisations. Also ensure that you have the appropriate travel insurance for your trip, covering the correct locations, activities and any pre-existing medical conditions.
In addition to the advice above, it's also important to remember to look after yourself and your team mates. This sounds obvious but perhaps vague at the same time. It is important to take responsibility for yourself and to take an active role in looking out for the rest of your team. Talk to your team members and Moving Mountains staff if you have any concerns or worries, as talking through things and getting advice from others can be particularly helpful.
It is extremely unlikely that altitude sickness will be a problem on this trip and the highest altitude is only just over 2,000m, however please do speak to a member of the Moving Mountains team if you are concerned about this or notice any symptoms.
