Some of the problems faced by the solo female traveler in Nepal.
High altitude sickness
One of the major problems faced by solo female travelers including other trekkers is high altitude sickness. We always recommend you to trek with someone who can help you during such times. You must take guidance to help you in each of those situations. The conditions of the Himalayas’ weather are unpredictable. So you must be careful about the weather and climatic conditions.
There are lots of things to prepare before any kind of trip. At the same time, you must be prepared mentally so that you can complete your trekking journey without having any fear. This is not easy but you can read some articles about the trip to the destination, where you are actually going. This will really help you to be mentally prepared.
Guide and Porters
We always recommend you to choose or demand a female guide. This is because you will be definitely comfortable and easy to share your discomfort with the female guide rather than the male. Always plan or book your trip through the registering agency in Nepal. If you are thinking of going by a non-registered company then you will face .lots of difficulties.
