Keep in mind that you will be trekking above 3000m during the journey to Kyanjin Gumpa. Walking fast at such elevation could lead to medical complications (Acute Mountain Sickness) which could be serious. There is less oxygen compared to sea level in high-altitudes places. The higher, altitude will be the less oxygen in air. Your body needs a day to acclimatize to this environment, which is why we will stop one day rest in Kyanjin Gumpa. Although we provide information regarding AMS insurance, the only option for treatment is descending (evacuation). We advise that clients with known heart, lung or blood diseases, or clients over the age of 60 to discuss with their doctor before traveling with us.
