The most important precaution while trekking to this altitude is to be aware of proper acclimatization and to be sure that you are well adapted to the altitude before moving up further. If you have never been to such a high altitude before, we encourage you to try Diamox .
Members are allowed access to our extensive medical supplies, first-aid kits, medical oxygen, etc. Our methods and equipment used in expedition trekking are time-tested over more than 20 years. We do not spare expense and have a complete range of equipment and very in-depth knowledge and experience in the use of rescue equipment, communications equipment, cookers, fuels, cooking equipment, proper and nutritious foods, hydration supplies and techniques, a vast array of tents (both used and used), high-altitude camping equipment. Our philosophy is one of "It is better too bring too much than not enough". We believe that our philosophy of being extra prepared is one of the key factors in our long tradition of successful ascents.
