Acute mountain sickness

When we ascend above 2500 meters our bodies have to acclimatize to the decreasing amount of the oxygen available. To allow our bodies to adjust we have structured our treks so that you ascend slowly, allowing acclimatization to occur. However, during the acclimatization process, you may experience some of the following symptoms.
• Headache
• Tiredness
• Disturbed sleep
• Loss of appetite/nausea
• Shortness of breath
• Cough
• Palpitation
• Swelling of the hands and face

Individuals acclimatize at different rates. Your best strategy is to take your time and drink plenty of water. These symptoms may not indicate the onset of A.M.S. and if you experience them it does not necessarily mean that you should not continue. All our group leaders have extensive first aid training and we urge you to communicate with the group leader at all times should you believe you have any symptoms in order that we can effectively monitor your symptoms. The only cure for Acute Mountain Sickness is to descend.

Please note that your group leader has ultimate responsibility and may ask you to descend if symptoms persist.

Am I suitable for this trip?

FAQs

GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass Difficulties

The Great Himalayan Trail (GHT) Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass is a challenging and remote trekking route that takes you through the Everest and Rolwaling regions of Nepal. This traverse involves crossing the Tashi Labsta Pass, which is one of the high mountain passes in the region. Here are some of the difficulties and challenges you might encounter on this trek:

Altitude:

The entire route involves trekking at high altitudes, and crossing the Tashi Labsta Pass itself requires ascending to an elevation of around 5,755 meters (18,875 feet). Altitude sickness is a serious concern, and proper acclimatization is essential to avoid its effects.

Weather and Conditions:

The weather in the Everest and Rolwaling regions can be unpredictable and harsh, even during the trekking seasons. Cold temperatures, snowfall, high winds, and changing conditions can pose challenges to trekkers.

Technical Terrain:

The trek involves various terrains, including steep ascents, descents, rocky paths, glaciers, and potentially icy sections. The Tashi Labsta Pass requires some basic mountaineering skills, including the use of crampons and ice axes, particularly if the pass has significant snow and ice coverage.

Remote and Isolated:

The route is relatively less traveled and remote, with fewer amenities and facilities compared to more popular trekking areas like the Everest Base Camp route. This remoteness can make logistics and emergency assistance more challenging.

Physical Endurance:

The entire trek is physically demanding due to its length, altitude gains, and rugged terrain. Trekkers need to have good physical fitness and endurance to tackle the daily walking distances and the steep ascents and descents.

Logistical Challenges:

The trek requires careful planning and coordination of supplies, accommodation, and transportation, as facilities can be scarce in some sections. You might need to carry some of your own food and camping equipment, especially in less developed areas.

Navigation:

Due to the remoteness of the trail, proper navigation skills are crucial. Trekkers should be comfortable using maps, GPS devices, or even hiring local guides to avoid getting lost.

Permits and Regulations:

Nepal requires trekkers to obtain permits for certain regions, and these regulations can change. Obtaining the correct permits and adhering to local rules is essential for a smooth trek.

Limited Communication:

In remote areas, mobile network coverage might be sparse or nonexistent. This can make it challenging to communicate with the outside world in case of emergencies.

What are the best month for GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass?

The best months for trekking the GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass are during the two main trekking seasons in Nepal: the pre-monsoon (spring) season and the post-monsoon (autumn) season. These seasons provide the most favorable weather and conditions for trekking in the region. The specific months to consider are:

Spring Season (Pre-Monsoon): March to May

  • This is one of the most popular and preferred times for trekking in Nepal.
  • The weather is generally stable and dry.
  • Temperatures are relatively mild, and the skies are usually clear, offering excellent mountain views.
  • The rhododendron forests along the trail are in full bloom, adding to the natural beauty of the surroundings.
  • This season is considered ideal for crossing high mountain passes like the Tashi Labsta Pass due to less snow accumulation and more stable conditions.

Autumn Season (Post-Monsoon): September to November

  • Another popular and highly recommended time for trekking in Nepal.
  • The monsoon rains have cleared the skies, resulting in excellent visibility and stunning mountain vistas.
  • The temperatures are comfortable during the day, and the nights are not as cold as during the winter months.
  • The trail conditions are generally dry and more stable.
  • The autumn season is also suitable for crossing high passes like the Tashi Labsta Pass, as snow levels are relatively lower immediately after the monsoon.

Do we need a guide and porter in GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass?

While trekking the GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass is possible without a guide and porter, there are several factors to consider when making this decision:

Difficulty and Navigation:

The trail can be challenging, with varying terrains, high mountain passes, and remote areas. If you're an experienced trekker with good navigation skills and mountaineering experience, you might feel confident navigating the trail on your own. However, proper navigation skills are crucial to avoid getting lost in the remote areas.

Safety:

Having a guide with local knowledge and experience can enhance your safety. They are familiar with the trail, weather patterns, and potential risks, and can offer assistance in case of emergencies. In remote regions, immediate medical help might not be readily available, so having someone knowledgeable can be a lifesaver.

Logistical Support:

A guide can handle logistics such as arranging accommodations, meals, and permits. In some sections of the trail, accommodations might be limited, and a guide can help secure lodging in advance.

Cultural Experience:

Guides often provide insights into the local culture, history, and traditions, enriching your trekking experience. They can also facilitate communication with locals, enhancing your interactions along the way.

Physical Demands:

The altitude, rugged terrain, and long walking days can be physically demanding. Having a porter to carry your heavy backpack can significantly ease the strain on your body, allowing you to focus on enjoying the trek.

What types of permit documents are require for GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass?

Trekking the GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass requires several permits and documents to ensure your legal entry into the protected areas and to support conservation efforts. The specific permits needed might change, so it's important to check with local authorities or reliable trekking agencies for the most up-to-date information. Here are the permits commonly required for this trek:

TIMS (Trekkers' Information Management System) Card:

TIMS cards were introduced to manage trekkers' information and safety in various trekking areas of Nepal. The TIMS card system was discontinued for individual trekkers in some areas, including the Everest region. Instead, other permits are required.

Sagarmatha National Park Permit:

The Sagarmatha National Park is home to Mount Everest and covers the Everest Base Camp area. A permit is required to enter this national park, and it's obtained at the National Park entrance in Monjo or other designated locations. This permit supports conservation efforts and helps maintain the infrastructure in the region.

Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit (GCAP):

The Rolwaling area might require a Gaurishankar Conservation Area Permit (GCAP). This permit is obtained at the Tourism Office in Kathmandu or other designated locations. It's important to check whether your trekking route falls within the Gaurishankar Conservation Area and if this permit is needed.

Special Permits:

Depending on your trekking route and whether you plan to cross the Tashi Labsta Pass, you might need additional special permits. These permits could include permissions for restricted or controlled areas. As of my last update, some routes that include restricted areas require special permits issued by the Nepali government authorities.

Local Permits:

In some areas along the route, you might encounter local communities that require additional permits or fees to pass through their lands. These permits are usually arranged and paid for on the spot.

Do we get altitude sickness during the GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass?

Yes, there is a risk of altitude sickness when trekking the GHT Everest & Rolwaling Traverse via Tashi Labsta Pass or any high-altitude trek in the Himalayas. Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when you ascend to high elevations too quickly and your body doesn't have enough time to acclimatize to the reduced oxygen levels in the air.

The Tashi Labsta Pass itself reaches an elevation of approximately 5,755 meters (18,875 feet), which is considered very high, and you'll be trekking at various altitudes throughout the journey. Altitude sickness can range from mild symptoms like headache, nausea, and fatigue to more severe forms like high-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) and high-altitude cerebral edema (HACE), which can be life-threatening if not treated promptly.

To minimize the risk of altitude sickness, consider the following precautions:

Gradual Acclimatization:

Take your time to ascend gradually, allowing your body to acclimatize to higher elevations. Avoid rapid gains in altitude.

Stay Hydrated:

Drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated, but avoid excessive alcohol and caffeine consumption.

Proper Nutrition:

Maintain a balanced diet to provide your body with the energy it needs for the trek.

Listen to Your Body:

Pay attention to your body's signals. If you start experiencing symptoms of altitude sickness, descend to a lower altitude immediately.

Stay Well-Rested:

Get enough rest and sleep during the trek to help your body adapt.

Medication:

Consult with a healthcare professional about medications like acetazolamide (Diamox), which can help prevent altitude sickness. It's best to start taking such medications before reaching high altitudes.

Stay at Lower Elevations:

During rest days, it's a good idea to stay at a lower elevation to allow your body more time to acclimatize.

Avoid Overexertion:

Pace yourself and avoid pushing too hard. Listen to your guide's advice regarding trekking distances and breaks.

Know the Signs:

Be familiar with the symptoms of altitude sickness and know when to seek medical help.

Travel with a Guide:

If you're trekking without a guide, make sure you're well-informed about altitude sickness and have a plan in place for emergencies.
