FAQs

WHAT SAFETY EQUIPMENT AND MECHANISMS DO YOU HAVE?
Safety is the most important consideration in a trek like this and we do everything to make sure that safety is the priority and the trekkers are always looked after .Our teams of guides have long time experience with first aid medical knowledge on the mountain which guarantees your safety. We carry oxygen tanks on each climb for emergency on the mountain. We check the clients every morning and evening by using pulse oximeter during the climb. Pulse Oximeter is used to check blood oxygen saturation regularly throughout the climb. This allows the guide to determine how clients' body is adapting to the reduced amount of oxygen at the higher altitude.

If clients' oxygen saturation is below an acceptable level, we have emergency oxygen as stated above. Our guides now carry a stretcher in case of emergency for carrying casualty down to the place where there is 4 x 4.
