Prior to travel, Elevate Destinations strongly recommends that you look into recommended immunizations for your time in Nepal. Given that we are not a licensed Health Care provider, we cannot advise travelers on which immunizations they may need. We recommend that all travelers do the following:
a) Consult with a travel clinic or your personal physician regarding the immunizations and other precautions you may need to take in order to participate in this journey. You will need to do this well in advance of your trip as some vaccinations require time to take effect, and you may need to allow time between a series of shots.
b) Visit the the CDC Website for Nepal to view recommended vaccines and medicines, travel health notices for the region, and other tips for staying healthy and safe.
Kathmandu stands at an elevation of approximately 1,400 meters (4,600 feet) above sea level in the bowl-shaped Kathmandu Valley of central Nepal. Some areas of your itinerary could be even higher. Because these areas may be at higher altitudes than travelers are used to, we encourage you to check with your doctor about altitude medication and other preparations. Everyone reacts differently to higher altitudes, and reactions do not necessarily correlate with overall health. Please note that some medications must be taken 7-10 days before arrival. We are happy to arrange pre-trip accommodations for travelers who would like extra time to adjust to the altitude.
