This arrangement ensures that the group can still go ahead as scheduled itinerary despite any member gets sick on the way in the trekking.
  • Experience and Health Requirements

    Annapurna sanctuary trekking is considered a moderate trek suitable for those who can hike for 6 – 8 hours a day. Obviously hiking in the high altitude will not be so easy rather physically more demanding, however, our itinerary is scheduled for the proper acclimatization while gradually gaining the altitude in the trekking. It will be advisable to have some walking and hiking or other outdoor activities for more than two weeks which will contribute to comfortable accomplishment in reaching Annapurna base camp. No technical skills or use of crampons are required for this trekking. It is highly recommended for the trekkers to consult with the doctors before coming for this trekking.

  • Travel Insurance

    Trekkers need to have traveling insurance which covers the comprehensive expenses that might incur due to medical issues or accidents (this includes air ambulance, helicopter rescue, and medical treatment costs). Insurance companies in Nepal do not provide traveling insurance for the foreigners and the trekkers need to get the traveling insurance from one of the international insurance companies. Sunrise Adventure Trek will have accident insurance for the trekking staff.

Unlike other trekking companies, Sunrise AdventureTrek allows trekkers to choose the food from the menu at the hotel/lodges in the trek. When the group is too big for the hotels/ lodges to provide individual dishes, the set menu will be arranged in most places. We use the lodges/hotels which serve hygienic, nutritious and good food for the trekkers for them to get enough energy for the hiking.

    Any trekker can get altitude sickness while trekking in the high altitude despite strong physical fitness. What is important is giving enough time for the proper acclimatization for the trekking.

Hiking slowly especially in the high altitude help prevent AMS ( Acute Mountain Sickness ). If anyone feels dizzy, suffer palpitation or severe headaches and loss of appetite, he / she will be moved to the lower altitude immediately or arrange the helicopter rescue in the severe case of AMS and the client has to pay for it.
