                    Guides And Porters

                    Many people believe trekking is about going out of their comfort zone to test their resilience and push their limits. This statement is true as you are going to hike long hours to uncover the rugged, steep terrains and still proceed with the trek despite exhaustion. However, you need to think about your safety and comfort while going on these long treks.

                    You are not habituated to carrying 9 kg weights on your back and navigating the trails with a map in your hand. So hiring guides and porters to simplify the already difficult Langtang Valley Gosainkunda trek is totally okay. Our guides will help you navigate the trails while providing you with proper knowledge about the culture, myths, traditions, and history of the region.

                    Travel Insurance

                    It is very essential to be insured with a travel insurance policy while trekking to the mountains. Despite the fact that you do not want to think about any accidents and mishaps, you will be hiking all day on those rugged and steep paths. So, there is no surety that any unforeseeable circumstances won’t occur.

                    Hence, to mitigate the risk and share the financial burden, you have to take the policy that will cover all your medical expenses, hospital bills, air ambulance, and evacuation costs. Most travel insurance does not include the cancellation expense. This will help you to cover the pre-paid expenses like accommodations, flight costs, and visas in case you have to cancel the trek due to some personal or other reasons. Therefore, we encourage you to take the policy that will cover even cancellation expenses.

                    Altitude sickness and other safety measures:

                    When the altitude rises, the air in the atmosphere gets less dense, and the percentage of oxygen in the air decreases. While trekking, our body needs to adapt to the lower oxygen level, but when the body is unable to adapt to the low partial pressure of oxygen at a high altitude, a pathological condition known as altitude sickness occurs.

                    The common symptoms of acute mountain sickness or altitude sickness are headache, nausea, vomiting, lack of appetite, insomnia, shortness of breath, fatigue, and drowsiness.

                    Moreover, it is normal to fall prey to altitude sickness as you ascend above 3000 m, so you dont have to worry about others' opinions or feel burdensome if you are going to hinder others' journey. Nothing is more important than health. So, if you experience these symptoms, you must not ignore them and continue your journey. You must notify the guides of your symptoms so that they can provide you with medical treatment as soon as possible.

                    Furthermore, to avoid altitude sickness, it is very important to ascend slowly by taking breaks. You should also acclimatize properly and intake about 3 to 4 liters of water daily to reduce dehydration. It is better if you intake more soluble goods with proper balanced meals.

                    Preparation mentally and physically

                    Trekking can be physically and mentally demanding. Even though the Langtang Valley Gosainkunda trek requires a basic level of physical fitness, it is never too late to start a good habit. So you can try to enhance your physical strength by some regular exercises like swimming, jumping, walking, and even hiking. You can try some cardiovascular exercises to increase your stamina.

                    Moreover, even old people want to embark on this trek because of their religious belief in Gosainkunda, so they can try to consult with a medical doctor or physician to do some physical strengthening exercises.

                    At the same time, it is very essential to prepare yourself mentally while coming on this trek. It is not everyone's comfort zone to walk for long durations. So, you need to be mentally prepared for hiking and the exhaustion of trekking. Moreover, you cannot expect some top-notch amenities in the rural areas. You won't find Uber or a cab in case you dont feel like walking.

                    You need to make sure that you are okay with adapting to any unusual circumstances out of your comfort zone. Lastly, it is best not to have unrealistic expectations regarding trekking since if those expectations are not met during the journey, you will not be able to have actual fun during the trek.

                      • Himalaya Yatra-2019: trekking of the Yoga group

                        Namaste Everyone! My name is Andrew, I was part of a team of yogis from Moscow who completed a 3-week trek to Langtang Valley (reaching the 5,000 m Tsergo Ri peak) and Gosaikunda Lakes. Write here with big gratitude to everyone who made our Yatra (pilgrimage) in Himalayas possible! A team of 8 yogis, led by our teacher Fuad Aliev, went to a 3-week journey in the mountains to make our Yatra and practice yoga on all the heights we've been on. The Divine was on our side and the journey was full of harmony and joy, the weather was wonderful and the sun bright - every day! Yes, the nights were sometimes cold but regardless of this everyone's managed to complete the journey and go through his/her own inner processes on the deepest possible level. And, sure thing, it could not be possible without our team of guides led by Bam Magar. Their professionalism, patience and wisdom, ability to quickly solve any problems and good knowledge of the trek made it possible for us to relax and fully concentrate on the process. Special thanks to our guides Bam and Master Niraj, and big thanks to our porters! You all became our great friends! I'll be happy to meet you and go to some trek with you again! Andrew
