VACCINATION FOR NEPAL    

Travelers should consult with their physician or update on vaccination requirements before travel. (Your doctor or the health-care provider will determine what you will need, depending on factors such as your health and immunization history, areas of the country you will be visiting, and planned activities). For traveling to Nepal, we recommend you to take vaccination of Polio, Tetanus, Typhoid, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Rabies, etc. However, it is not mandatory but recommended.

ALTITUDE SICKNESS (ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS)

Altitude sickness, also known as AMS (acute mountain sickness), is caused by a lack of oxygen at high altitudes (normally above 3,000m). It occurs as the result of our bodies’ inability to adapt to a sudden increase in altitude. If given time, our bodies will adjust and a gradual ascent will decrease the possibility of altitude sickness. 

PREVENTION OF AMS: Go slowly, drink a lot of water, and pay attention to the sensations of your body. If symptoms occur you have climbed too far for the day. Rest at the same altitude will give you time to acclimatize and usually relieve mild symptoms. 

MILD SYMPTOMS: Headache, nausea, loss of appetite, and mild shortness of breath with minimal exertion, difficulty sleeping, dizziness or lightheadedness, mild weakness, fatigue, a general unwell feeling. 

SERIOUS SYMPTOMS: The inability to recover from shortness of breath with rest, severe persistent headache, low urine output, vomiting, confusion, delirium, loss of coordination. These require immediate descent as acclimatization will not take place at the same altitude. 

The key is to trek slowly, carry a light pack and just take it easy. Allow your body the time it needs to acclimatize.

ARRIVAL INSTRUCTION

Upon your arrival at TIA International Airport, our company's representatives are stationed to pick you up. They will be holding your name sign along with the company's name in it. Our office representative will escort you to your hotel in Kathmandu.

Amazing Experience, Highly Recommended !!

This is the most unforgettable trip we've ever taken. We didn't think 11 days would be enough to see the Annapurnas, but the way this trip was organized and carried out was incredible. Because the tour was so well-organized, we thoroughly loved every minute of the trip and didn't feel like we were missing out on anything because of the time constraints. We didn't have to worry about our pace because it was a private guided trip. We saw the beautiful Annapurna foothills, visited towns, and met some new acquaintances along the route. I'll be eternally grateful to AAT for this quick yet well-organized trip.

Great Trek with Amazing Landscape

We had a group of 5, and AAT helped us manage everything from accommodation to duffle bags as we had no past trekking experience. The guide was very helpful and entertaining.

Dhorpatan Hunting Reserve Trek

The trekking is fantastic! It went just as planned, the organization was flawless, and Puru was extremely helpful and accommodating. He responds quickly and clearly, and he knows what he's talking about. We strongly advise you to travel with his firm!

On the Annapurna Circuit, you'll have a once-in-a-lifetime adventure!

I had a fantastic time with Alpha Adventure! Despite the challenging weather that comes with hiking in the off-season, my guide made sure that I was able to fulfill my dream of reaching the Thorong la pass! As a solo female tourist, I felt quite safe with his extensive trekking knowledge and accommodating nature. Without the AAT crew, I would not have had the once-in-a-lifetime trekking experience. I wholeheartedly endorse it!

Amazing Trek experience !!

I completed the Annapurna Circuit and had a fantastic time. The circuit is a little touristy, but the scenery is breathtaking, and it is much less crowded in the off-season; the weather is still pleasant in May. I always had a nice vibe traveling with Alpha Adventure Treks because everyone I met was so friendly and welcoming.

Fabulous Trek !!

Trekking to Khopra Ridge was an incredible adventure! We liked how it was a little off the beaten road. It was not at all crowded. We had the impression that we had the mountains to ourselves.

Visit to ghalegaun village homestay

We had a fantastic time at Ghalegaun Village Homestay. The locals in the village were quite nice and created a lovely and welcoming atmosphere, as well as excellent food. Our overnight stay at the homestay was equally fantastic and unforgettable.

A fantastic guide and a once-in-a-lifetime adventure

With Yuvi as our guide, we had the most incredible tour. Everything was taken care of by the firm, from hotel pickup to excursions like a sight-seeing flight to Everest. We were in wonderful hands the entire time and felt protected.

A lifetime experience

It was the most unforgettable trekking trip I've ever taken. ABC is really gratifying in every way. This is the second time I've done it. Maybe one day I'll do it again. Every time you take a different route, you'll get a new experience. From Himalaya to ABC, the vista is incredible.

Almost too much to comprehend

We had a good view of this spectacular mountain from afar, which added to its majesty. Our Nepalese guide spoke about it with reverence, and we were enslaved by it as well. Climbing this behemoth is both awe-inspiring and terrifying, and neglecting to be humble can lead to death.
