What is required for the 4 days mount climb?
All climbers should attempt to bring as much as possible of the following:
Suggested medicines: headache tablets (preferably not aspirin since this tends to irritate stomachs already sensitive at altitude), Imodium/Lomotil for diahorrea sometimes associated with altitude. Climbers may like to consult their physicians about azetazolomide (Diamox), a drug that many find mitigates the ill effects of altitude, headache, diahorrea & vomiting.
It is customary for satisfied climbers to tip guides and porters. Amounts given are entirely within the discretion of the guest. As a general guideline, however, guests are advised to budget $50-100 each for this purpose. The amount per guest tends to be larger the smaller the group.
