Unfortunately, bottled water is very pricey.
Please bring good water bottles (for boiling water) and water purification tablets or water filter bottles since plastic bottles are detrimental for the environment.

Therefore, you must ensure that your insurance covers the price of an air ambulance, medical care, and any risks associated with travel, such as delayed flights and lost, stolen, damaged, or missing baggage. Your complete itinerary while visiting Nepal should be covered by your insurance policy. Make sure your insurance policy covers hikes higher than 5,500 meters. If not, you will be responsible for all unforeseen costs associated with your trek through Nepal.
All trekkers must send a copy of their certificate from their comprehensive travel insurance policy to High Pass Adventure as part of the booking process for trekking and climbing in Nepal.

According to doctors, If you are at sea level, it begins at 8,000 feet (2400 meters).
There are three types of altitude sickness:
Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): it is very common and symptoms feel like a tiredness, dizzy, headache, thirsty, muscle aches, nausea
High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): it is effect in the lungs, which can be very dangerous and hard to do life threatening
High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): it is effective in the brain and most difficult to treat and you need to go to hospital attention the right way.
Following are the causes of high altitude sickness:
Generally living near sea level and travel to a high elevation
Had the sickness before
Not being acclimatized to the altitude
Drinking alcohol when you ascend
Medical problems of heart, nervous or lungs

Sleep at a lower altitude when possible.
Make sure that you have the ability to quickly descend if needed.
