Dragnak (4700m) is a small remote settlement in the Everest region. It takes around a few hours to arrive at Dragnak after crossing the Ngozumpa glacier. The trails that you need to pass to reach Dragnak are pretty challenging. There are thick snow-covered grounds and icy pockets most of the time of the year. It is also a landslide-prone area as there are high chances of landslides and avalanches in the area.
Dragnak is a settlement with some lodges and teahouses. Therefore, it is an ideal stopover point for those trekkers crossing the Cho La pass. Do not get confused as Dragnag is also known as Thagnak. The majestic view of the longest Himalayas glacier is one of the prime attractions of this place. This beautiful spot is ideal if you want to acclimatize to a peaceful and tranquil environment.
Since the remote terrains are pretty challenging, there are high chances of getting injured. Sprains, cuts, and blisters are common problems of the trekkers. However, a difficult factor that needs to be addressed appropriately is altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is a significant problem in the high altitude region.
It lies at an altitude of 4700m, making it difficult for trekkers to breathe and as there is minimal oxygen and air pressure. Trekkers generally get symptoms like nausea, dizziness, headache, insomnia, loss of appetite, and others. Besides that, dehydration and hypothermia due to extreme weather conditions are pretty common as well.
