As you all know, we will be flying to Ladakh from Delhi. We will be at elevations above 11,000ft (over 16,000ft on our trek) and while we will be careful to acclimatize as much as possible, we fly directly in to Leh at over 11,000ft. You may want to consider speaking to adoctor about bringing the prescription medicine Diamox, which helps with the acclimatization process. We will be carrying Diamox but cannot administer it without a prescription. If you are able to obtain a prescription before you leave, you will have the option to take Diamox should you want to.
As may have been communicated to you already, you may also like to bring non prescription preventative medicines, such as:
-Anti-bacterial gel to keep your hands clean
-Vitamin C and Echinacea to fight off colds
-Grapefruit Seed Extract (GSE)- which acts like a natural anti biotic (nutribiotic)
-Perfect Food (a super food powder)
– Due to Ladakh’s elevation, vegetables are limited and you may want to consider bringing some of the following, or anything else which helps promote a healthy immune system or works as a dietary supplement
Also, don’t forget to bring warm clothing!
We look forward to meeting you all soon!
