SAFETY

Success is what we want during our trip. We are prepared for any urgent situation and also have in place a complete evacuation procedure in case of altitude sickness. We carry first aid supplies, supplement summit oxygen and Pulse Oximeters).

  • chemical hand and foot warmers in case you have to spend time at Kibo waiting for the rest of your group to come back
