Each individual in a group differs sometimes, some are close friends and couple or just a solo traveler joining in the group.

Certainly, all trekkers requires to obtain travel and medical insurance for safety purposes. One can never know what befalls ahead, some might can be very ill from diarrhea or altitude sickness known as AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness).

Another reason for travel insurance, just in case the trip can be obstructed by bad weather, where trek needs re-route the destination or might get canceled.

Where flight to Lukla operates on good fine weather, if the flight gets delayed or canceled it will affect the whole itinerary days. Where you’re insurance can cover most of your expenses.

Depending upon each individual and how fit and strong you are, normally altitude does affect many trekkers with slight headache, where one can get acclimatize taking slowly, sleeping well and having meals.

If your doctor or leader recommends you taking Diamox, which should be taken on the very first day of the trek, and till the end of the journey to Lukla.

But if you are in good health, and take the walk slowly no need for Diamox as it has some side effects also, making your finger numb.

All strong drugs including sleeping pills should be avoided at high altitudes, as it can lead to severe consequences and disorder to your body, Ibuprofen is a pain killer, can be taken on the advice of your doctor or group leader.
