Yala Peak Climbing is the best 14-day adventure trip in the natural beautiful valley of Langtang National Park. It is technically difficult and popular compared to other trekking peaks in Nepal. Yala Peak is a small mountain in the Himalayas of Nepal. Considered by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) as the peak of trekking, non-technical mountaineering is a bit easier. The peak is very popular because it is the highest mountain in Tibet and the best vantage point to see the lowest of the 14 8000m peaks, Shishapangma (8027m). Combined with Nepal’s wonderful Valley trekking, the Yarra Peak Climbing Trip is the best choice for those who want to stand on the peaks of the Himalayas but have limited time and budget. This trip rewards visitors with exciting trekking and mountaineering adventures in the beautiful area, far beyond simple hikes. Climbing Yala Peak is not technical. No previous rock climbing experience is required, but costume experience and a moderate level of physical fitness and stamina are required.
Start your journey to Yala Peak with a half-day drive from Kathmandu to Sibulvesi. Trek through the lush forests and beautiful settlements of Domen, Bamboo, Rama Hotel, Langtang Village and Kenjin Gompa to arrive at Yala Peak’s stunning base camp. In April 2015, he experienced Nepal earthquakes and mainly in the Langtang of the village, mainly in the village Langtang. You can watch a lot of beautiful Mountains (7246m), LenPo Gang (7246m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m), gang pensive (6388m), nice views of Shishapangma (8027m) on the side of Tibetan . Therefore, one of the short trekking peaks with a short choice of wilderness migration is a short choice for two weeks long, has climbing experience in a short time of Himalaya
Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is common at high altitudes sickness. In general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. The symptoms of altitude sickness are due to lower air pressure at high altitudes, which results in lower oxygen levels as you breathe the air in. The air is under less pressure and this makes it harder for your body to get the oxygen out of the air and into the circulation. It’s this extra strain on the body that causes altitude sickness.
Symptoms tend to be worse at night and include headache, dizziness, and lethargy, loss of appetite, nausea, breathlessness and irritability. Difficulty sleeping is another common symptom.
MAJOR SYMPTOMS OF ALTITUDE SICKNESS
- Periods of sleeplessness
- Runny nose.
- Extra tiredness
- Occasional loss of appetite
- Feeling laziness
- Wish to vomiting
- Periodic breathing
Above are normal symptoms which may occur into your body that you should not be worried. Every trekker will experience some or all of these, no matter how slowly they ascend.
- Headache and vomiting
- Racing heartbeat
- Loss of apatite
- Hard to breath
- Extra tired
- Dry Raspy cough
When above symptoms will occur into your body, these symptoms usually resolve by spending one or two extra nights at the same altitude or using medicine. Even you are resting at the same altitude or using medicine, if symptoms are becoming worse, then it is necessary to descend.
- Worsening headache and vomiting
- Swelling of hands and face
- Reduced urine output
- Walking with a staggering gait
- Increased tiredness
- Breathing irregularity
- Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not real)
- Changes in the ability to think
- Changes in normal behavior
If above serious symptoms will occur into your body, these extremely dangerous symptoms are called High Altitude Cerebral Edema (or HACE). They can lead to unconsciousness and death within 12 hours. Increasing shortness of breath, cough and tiredness may also be signs of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema or HAPE. HAPE can also be rapidly fatal if ignored.
TO PREVENT ACUTE MOUNTAIN SICKNESS
- If possible, don’t fly or drive to high altitude. Start below 3,000 metres (10,000 feet) and walk up.
- If you do fly or drive, do not overexert yourself or move higher for the first 24 hours.
- If you go above 3,000 metres (10,000 feet), only increase your altitude by 350 to 500 metres (1,000 feet) per day
- Climb high and sleep low! You can climb more than 300 to 500 metres in a day as long as you come back down and sleep at a lower altitude.
- If you begin to show symptoms of moderate altitude sickness, don’t go higher until symptoms decrease.
- Drink plenty of water, tea or juice etc (at least three to 4 liters per day). Urine output should be copious and clear to pale yellow.
- Eat high-carbohydrate foods (rice, pasta, cereal) for more energy.
- Take it easy and don’t overexert yourself when you first get up to altitude. But, light activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating the symptoms.
- Avoid alcohol as it may increase the risk of dehydration, and don’t smoke.
- Don’t push yourself when climbing up to passes, rather take plenty of breaks.
- Avoid taking sleeping pills.
- Avoid active movements and try to relax in the first one or two days upon arrival at the high altitude areas.
- Bring adequate medicine.
- If nothing else works, return to the areas with the lower elevation.
- Allow sufficient time for acclimatization (After 3000 meters).
- Don’t make rapid Ascent. Don’t go too far too fast.
- Do not trek/travel alone, take guide/porter.
- Follow the advice from your guide, hotel, local, guide book.
- Descent if mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.
- Never leave or descent sick person along.
- Avoid getting cold.
- Take an easy and comfortable trekking route even if its longer
