Trekkers need to cross various trails that pass through difficult circumstances. There are chances of trekkers getting injured like blisters, cuts, sprains, twists, and others. These injuries are pretty challenging as they will not allow trekkers to trek further. You might also have trouble trekking back to your original starting point.
Besides that, altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness is another challenging aspect of this trek. People get sick because they cannot adapt to high altitude and have various symptoms like nausea, headache, dizziness, insomnia, shortness of breath, etc. These symptoms of altitude sickness can cause you a lot of difficulties. The only way to recover from it is to descend to a lower altitude as quickly as possible.
However, trekking back is not an option for injured trekkers. Hence, a helicopter evacuation is ideal in these conditions. It becomes essential to evacuate those who suffer from altitude sickness. This is because it can lead to several advanced form illnesses. In these illnesses, fluid gets entered into different body parts like the brain and lungs. It can also turn fatal in some cases.
