Here's a guide to how to prepare: https://www.intrepidtravel.com/adventures/trekking-training-guide-tips
As this trip spends considerable time at altitude, we ask you to refer to the altitude warning within the Essential Trip Information. We spend two days in Leh (approximately 3500 m) acclimatising before taking part in any physical activities. The maximum altitude reached on this trip is approximately 5359 m (17,582 ft) at Khardung La Pass, one of the world's highest motorable roads.
A number of medical conditions or medications can also reduce your body's ability to acclimatise, and thus will affect your performance at altitude and make you more susceptible to AMS. If you are worried about any pre-existing condition (e.g. heart problems), or unsure of your physical ability, you must seek medical advice prior to booking.
This trip travels into the Himalayas, where temperatures can get very low. We don’t run the trip in winter, but ensure that you’re well prepared for cold weather at any time of the year (particularly from November to March). The sun can also be strong at higher altitudes, so make sure you bring a hat, sunscreen and any other relevant sun protection.
We visit a number of temples on this trip, which requires a certain level of modesty. Please bring clothes that cover the arms and pants/skirts that go past the knees. A light scarf is also a good idea for covering shoulders and arms when it’s hot.
