The following vaccination guide is an information resource only. You should not rely on it for diagnostic or prescriptive purposes. You should always speak with your GP or other health care professional about any vaccinations or other medicines you are considering taking. They will have more information about your specific health needs, and can make much more specific, reliable recommendations for you.
In general, we recommend the following vaccinations:
There is little risk on the majority of Himalayan treks that we operate, due to the altitude. However, there is a risk of malaria in areas below 1,500m so we recommend you take advice. If you are travelling in Nepal and planning a safari extension to Chitwan National Park or any travel in the the lowland region adjacent to the Indian border, then you will need to take anti-malarial medication.
In addition to any medication, we would recommend you take every precaution to prevent mosquito bites by wearing long-sleeved trousers and shirts at dusk and dawn when the mosquitos are active, and by using a DEET based mosquito repellent.
