How to Prevent Altitude Sickness While Trekking ABC in Minimal Duration?

Altitude sickness is a common problem trekkers face even in the minimal duration. Generally, Acute mountain sickness is faced as you get above 2500m. A short trek to Annapurna Base Camp reaches up to 4130m, so there is still a chance of Altitude sickness while trekking in ABC minimal duration. Headache, Insomnia, Nausea, Lack of coordination, Loss of appetite, and Swelling of hands and feet are some significant symptoms of altitude sickness. If you experience such symptoms, immediately call your guide for help, and our guides will help you overcome such issues. 

Here are some of the preventive measures and tips that reduce the chance of altitude sickness you may get during short  trekking in Annapurna Base Camp: 

  • Ascent slowly: While trekking the Annapurna base camp short trek, consider ascending slowly. Ascending slowly helps your body adapt to the changing temperature and acclimatize to the increasing altitudes. 
  • Carry medicine: While preparing for trekking in the Annapurna Base Camp, consider carrying medicine for altitude-related sickness. Diamox (Acetazolamide) is a commonly used medicine for preventing altitude sickness. 
  • Stay Hydrated: It is necessary to stay hydrated during the short trek to Annapurna Base Camp. Trekking daily for about 4-5 hours leads to tiredness and dehydration, so staying hydrated can help you maintain your body condition. Trekkers are advised to consume 5 liters of water daily while trekking on ABC. 
  • Avoid Alcohol, smoking, and Caffeine: Consumption of alcohol, smoking, and Caffeine leads to dehydration. Consumption of such items can damage respiration and other metabolic activities of the body. So, avoid alcohol, smoking, and even Caffeine as much as you can. 
  • Proper Nutrition: Throughout the short Annapurna Base Camp trekking, you must consume a properly balanced diet with the right amount of carbohydrates. Avoid consuming oily and heavy meals. However, you don’t need to be worried about the meals, as Boundless Adventure provides three meals throughout the trekking journey. The tea houses provide the meals, where you get local and organic food. 
  • Travel with a guide: Guides are the companions of your trekking journey who do multiple tasks for you. A well-experienced guide is trained in handling emergency cases and can recognize your altitude sickness symptoms. So, traveling with an experienced guide can greatly help you prevent the risk of acute mountain sickness.

Risk of High Altitude Sickness

The risk of high altitude sickness, also called acute mountain sickness, increases with an increase in altitude and the speed of ascent. Getting to the destination is beautiful, but the altitude sickness is dangerous. Although altitude sickness is dangerous, it can be prevented and treated. Still, if the condition gets extreme, it can turn into a Severe critical condition. To minimize the risk of high altitude sickness, you need to know about the risk factors of altitude sickness: 

  • Rapid Ascent: When you ascend rapidly on the short trek to Annapurna without letting your body acclimatize, your body will be unable to change temperature. The rapid ascent also doesn’t allow the body to adapt to the decreasing oxygen level at higher elevations, so not allowing your body to acclimate causes a high altitude risk. 
  • Dehydration: Dehydration doesn’t let the body perform metabolic activities, causing respiratory problems. Not properly hydrated can cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, and fatigue, a symptom of acute mountain sickness. Another risk of high altitude sickness is caused due to dehydration in the body. 
  • Consumption of alcohol: During the Annapurna base short trek, one should not consume alcohol. Additionally, consumption of cigarettes and caffeine can also lead to the risk of high altitude sickness.
  • Lack of acclimatization: Proper acclimatization is important while trekking at a higher altitude. Pepper rest plays a vital role in reducing the risk of high-altitude sickness. When your body is in good condition, it will be able to adjust to the changes in temperature and decrease the level of oxygen. Despite that, a lack of acclimatization can cause a high risk of altitude sickness.

Danda, and drives to Pokhara. Again, the drive to Kathmandu concludes the ABC short trek.

The Annapurna Base Camp offers views of some great snow-capped mountains. These include Hiunchuli, Annapurna I, Machhapuchhre, Khangsar Kang, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, and other peaks seen from ABC. Glaciers and different landscapes are also visible from the top of Annapurna Base Camp.

Yes, trekking in the Annapurna is safe for women. Many women have been trekking in Nepal for decades, and none of them have complained of being unsafe. However, it is necessary to choose a trustworthy trekking company that ensures the women’s safety.

Journey in a heaven, Annapurna Base Camp

My wife and I always seek to experience the beauty of nature on our holidays. Last March, we completed our Short Annapurna base Camp trek. We chose Boundless Adventure for our service and gladly say they are Kathmandu’s best trekking agency. Rather than earning profits, they focus on customer satisfaction, comfort, and enjoyment. Boundless Adventure provided a well-planned itinerary, the finest accommodation, and a skilled and caring guide.

Each step on the trek was like stepping foot in heaven. The trek provided us not only with nature’s beauty but also offered a chance for cultural immersion. The smiling mountain range of Annapurna peaks and others made us forget our trek’s tiredness. We have already made pre-booking for the Everest Base Camp trek in the coming peak season. And we wholeheartedly recommend Boundless Adventure to anyone looking for a unique experience with the finest service.

Last-Long memory in ABC

I was bored by my busy life and wanted something new and refreshing. My best friend offered me to go for trekking in Nepal. As female trekkers, we sought a trustworthy agency that ensures our safety and makes us feel comfortable. Fortunately, we found Boundless Adventure. We messaged the team through WhatsApp and got a quick response.

Also, we felt comfortable talking with Mr.Dambar. During our chat, he promised to provide us with a safe journey, and he fulfilled his promise. The Boundless Adventure team’s support and encouragement, along with their attention to our safety and comfort, made the trek memorable and commendable.

Within six days, we completed our trek to Annapurna Base Camp, as we had chosen the short trek due to the time limit. However, the memories we have created will last forever. We encourage Boundless Adventure to any ladies looking for a trustworthy trekking agency for their trekking journey in Nepal.

Adventurous yet unforgettable trek

Our group of ten friends went on a short trek to Annapurna Base Camp. I was the team leader, and I was responsible for taking care of my friends. But Boundless Adventure made me tension-free by providing all the necessary support for our team during the trek.

Managing logistics for ten people was not easy as different people have different preferences; considering each of our desires, the Boundless team fulfilled each of our demands. Our group made an unforgettable memory on the trip. The trek was adventurous; however, we navigated the challenging paths smoothly while holding each other’s hands. The time we reached the top of the Annapurna Base camp was precious as we made a circle by hugging each other.

Thank you, team of Bundless, for providing us with a smooth journey. We’ll revisit Nepal and choose your support again.
