Risks is high for Preexisting Medical Conditions: Heart and Cardiovascular Disease;Bronchitis, Diabetes not controlled, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Very High Blood Pressure, Prior bypass surgery or Angioplasty, Coronary Artery Disease … Please check with your doctor if you are not sure of your own medical conditions

What about weather? – It’s the beginning of rainy season, North side of Everest may offers great conditions for night photography.

What about altitude? – I have lots of experience in the Himalaya region, and have planned this trip specifically for acclimatisation and maximum our time in Kharta Valley with at least 11 nights camping.

What about fitness level? – You need to have a healthy diet and start some fitness training at least 3 – 6 months prior to the trip. Walking around hilly monasteries and other hikes at high altitude will require more energy than usual, and hiking at 4500m is far more strenuous than steep hikes at sea level. The fitter you are, the more you can enjoy the experience and photography.
