Risk & Responds


High Altitude Treks: Risk and Response A high altitude trek calls for an adventurous attitude, but embarking on an adventurous trip without calculating the risks is utter stupidity. That’s why we have listed a few risks and the response planned by Go The Himalaya (GTH) to minimize or address the risks in the best possible way.
1) Risk: Acute Mountain Sickness(High Altitude sickness)

Before you start the trek, it is important to understand the implications of high altitude on your body. Be aware of symptoms of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) like mild headache, nausea and general discomfort etc.
Response:
If you feel any of these symptoms, inform the trek leader or your guide on priority and follow his instructions. Every campsite has a first aid kit, (oxygen cylinders: almost everywhere) to address the situation . If situation is getting worse then the guide or team leader inform us and we send rescue Helicopter as soon as possible.
2) Risk: Weather

Weather is unpredictable in the Himalayas. Though we are always observant about the changing weather, no one can guarantee a snowfall, rain or Sun. Do understand that your security is of utmost importance to us and we will not proceed any further from the campsite if the weather is not favorable.
Response:
The decision of the Trek Leaders and Guides to proceed or wait for the weather to get better will be final.

3) Risk: Injuries Often,

While trekking over difficult terrains, you might have minor injuries like leg sprain, bruises etc. Serious injuries like fractures or major cuts are very rare.
Response:
All our guide are trainer of First Aid . They are trained to handle emergencies and can tackle minor injuries with a first aid kit. In case of serious injuries, the patient is carried on a stretcher to the nearest road-head or charted helicopter and is led to nearest medical centre.
