Consume a balanced diet during the trek to maintain energy levels. High-carb and high-calorie foods are advisable.


**Medications and First Aid:

Carry essential medications and a basic first aid kit, including items like pain relievers, altitude sickness medication (if prescribed), and any personal medications you require.


**Respect Altitude:

Listen to your body and your guide. If you experience severe altitude sickness symptoms like nausea, dizziness, or difficulty breathing, it's crucial to descend immediately.


**Follow the Guide's Instructions:

Your guide is your primary source of information and safety. Follow their instructions, and don't hesitate to communicate any concerns.
