Altitude Sickness On Ghorepani Poonhill Trek 2 day

Altitude sickness also called the AMS is an illness that trekkers may experience while ascending at high altitudes. It is the most repeated problem among hikers. Poonhill Trek of 2 days gets you to a greater height, which is 3210m up in just 2 days, making you vulnerable to altitude sickness. Altitude sickness may involve the symptoms of headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, loss of energy, and difficulty sleeping. It may develop severe conditions with difficulty in thinking and breathing, lung impairment, and fluid in the lungs.

Also, you should be aware of the symptoms of HACE (high-altitude cerebral edema) and HAPE (high-altitude pulmonary edema), as these are the most severe kinds of altitude sickness. The symptoms of HACE comprise severe headache, loss of coordination, and dizziness, while HAPE includes sudden cough, shortness of breath, and chest tightness.

  • Acclimatization is the most effective way to avert the threat of altitude sickness. Therefore, one should spend a few days at a lower altitude before climbing higher.
  • Drink a lot of water, and don`t smoke or drink alcohol at all.

  • If any of you have the symptoms of altitude sickness, the best thing to do is go to a lower altitude as soon as possible. 

Travel Insurance Requirements for Ghorepani Poon Hill TreK 2 Day

Travel insurance is one of the important things you may need to check off your list while preparing for the 2 days of Poon Hill trekking from Pokhara. Travel insurance will eliminate all chances of getting injured, disease, or any other mishap while trekking. This brings in a two-fold benefit, especially when it comes to the cancellation of trips, loss or theft of gears, and many other uncalled-for situations. While the trek is marked at easy to moderate grade, there are some risks, too, particularly because it is being done at an elevation. There is a high chance of altitude sickness, injuries, falls, etc. Here are some of the considerations to make before you get your travel insurance in Nepal below:

  • The insurance before going on Poon Hill Trek 2 Days should cover all kinds of hiking activities and high-altitude trekking. Sadly, not all insurance policies will provide this service, so you need to ask about what they cover and don't. 
  • Find out whether the insurance plan's medical coverage is comprehensive or not. Trekking entails one of the most strenuous activities, and high altitude changes with the likelihood of accidents. Hence, inclusive insurance is needed to cover any sickness or accidents during the particular trek.
  • Ensure that the insurance package provides evacuation in case of a medical emergency. If you suffer an injury or illness while trekking, you will have to undergo an emergency evacuation to bring you to a hospital for treatment.

    Unforgettable Sunrises and Stunning Scenery

    Nepal has always been my dream of travel, but I had no thoughts of a long trek because it was expensive. Among all other adventures, the experience of a two-day Ghorepani Poon Hill trek with Adventure Altitude Trek was the most likeable one. Because it is budget-friendly and time-efficient, I chose it as I can have a visual experience of the Himalayas without leaving for long hikes.

    A 2-Day Trek to Remember

    I booked a 2 Days Poon Hill Trek from Pokhara with Adventure Altitude Treks. I was super impressed by the state of the accommodations and the food: they were both clean and comfortable, and the meals were simple but yummy. Kumar was my guide, and he was outstanding. He made us walk steadily, described the plants and animals we met, and even helped me bargain with the local shop owners at Ghorepani. Sunrise at Poon Hill was indescribable, but the snow-covered Himalayan peaks looked like they were on fire, giving off a warm glow. Such a trek would make you aware that the magnificence of Nepal is not only for the wealthiest.
