The first thing you need to consider is picking the right itinerary to give you the best experience going to a low oxygen environment. When going to altitude, you need to give your body adequate time to adjust to the lower levels of oxygen. If you don’t allow enough time in your itinerary, it could potentially ruin your experience and trip. We like to add in Poon Hill to all of our Annapurna Base Camp itineraries. Not only is this a beautiful addition to your itinerary, it also adds extra days, giving you the chance to acclimatize correctly. We don’t want you to just endure your trek, we want you to fully enjoy the wonderful experience that this region has to offer and adding the extra days does just that!
Breathing techniques, low heart rates, excellent hydration and pacing are all critical factors for you to have a safe and successful experience. You also need good physical conditioning to be able to walk up and down stairs and hills with a weighted backpack at high altitude. If you decide to join one of our trips, then we can help you understand what training and preparation that is required for the journey.
