Enjoy the breathtaking experience of the pictorial Sandakphu with Glaciers Trek and Adventure 

Sandakphu is the most visited places on the outskirts of West Bengal and Nepal. Going on a trek to Sandakphu will shower you with the mesmerising beauty of the highest peaks of the world. So if you are a traveler at heart and wish to explore the world of mountain, then it is time to pack your bags and embark on a journey with Glaciers Trek and Adventure. We organize the best trekking experience for you to make your journey remarkable.

 As a professional mountain guide agency we will make sure you do not miss out the spectacular views of Mt. Makalu, Mt. Kanchenjunga, Mt. Lhotse, and the towering Mt. Everest. All of which that can be witnessed on the trek of Sandakphu including the iconic Sleeping Buddha. Since the trekking path goes along the Nepal border, you would be stepping in the country and out of it continuously. It is indeed an experience worth remembering throughout your life.

Through our trekking organisation, you may start your Sandakphu journey in autumn, as it will give you unblemished sights of nature as well as the giant mountains. Else you can also go there in the October- November during core winter period to experience the magical snow. We ensure you would be enjoying every bit of the voyage surrounded by magnolia and rhododendrons. On the expedition of Sandakphu, witnessing Kalipokhri happens to be an exciting aspect. It is a black pond which resemblances the right foot of Lord Shiva, considering its shape, according to Buddhists. They also regard it as a holy pond as it never freezes.

The risk and difficulty quotient of the trek

Well, to be fair and honest, we would assure all our clients a safe and protected journey. But, it is also important to include the fitness factor here. Since the Sandakphu trek has been conceived as little tough journey hence being thoroughly fit is highly important. Like any other trek, it also requires the travelers to have a great endurance level and stamina to survive the mountain sickness. Other than that, on the route a motor road is there that leads to Phalut, this can be taken during any emergency if need be.

The preparation of the trek

Though we would take care of the medical support for our clients, but still, it is advisable for everyone to be fit and strong before embarking on the trek. You can do jogging and other exercises to enhance your endurance level and strength. During the trek, you might face certain obstacles along the road, which challenge your stamina to cover the distance. You also have to have strength in your legs, as you have to cover a long distance by walking. So you better look after the fitness area before the trip begins.

 What is meant by AMS? and what is the reason of having sickness and what is the Symptoms, and what is the Precaution? following under here summarise in brief.

  • We understand in simple AMS it means Acute mountain sickness: Acute mountain sickness (AMS) is the effect on the body of being in a high altitude environment. AMS is common at high altitudes, that is above 8,000 feet (2,440 meters). Three-quarters of people have mild symptoms of AMS over 10,000 feet (3,048 meters). The occurrence of AMS depends on the altitude, the rate of ascent, and individual susceptibility.
  • when we will going to high altitude trek, we should need to acclamatisation on the elevation in around 2500 meter to 3000meter, because our body should be habitute in the new environment. symptom usally having after arrival at altitude 10 to 24 hours, when we can have Suffering include of headache dizziness, fatige, shortness of breath, lossof appetite, nausea, disurbed sleep,and a general feeling ofmalaise,this time we have to think this is a symptom of AMS.
  • Mild AMS does not usually interfere with normal activity and symptoms generally subside within 2-4 days as the body acclimatizes. As long as symptoms are mild, and only a nuisance, ascent can continue at a moderate rate. When hiking, it is essential to communicate any symptoms of illness immediately to others on your trip. AMS is considered to be a neurological problem caused by changes in the central nervous system. It is basically a mild form of high altitude cerebral edema.
  • Mild AMS is usually treated with pain medications for headache and a drug called DIAMOX which allows one to breathe faster and so metabolize more oxygen, thereby minimizing the symptoms caused by poor oxygenation. This is especially helpful at night when respiratory drive is decreased. Since it takes a while for DIAMOX to have an effect, it is advisable to start taking it 24 hours before going to altitude and continue it for at least 5 days at higher altitude.
