- Recent medical and dental exams should ensure that you are in good health.
- Bring an adequate supply of all prescription and other medications as well as any necessary personal hygiene items, including a spare pair of eyeglasses or contact lenses if necessary.
- Drink only bottled beverages (including water) or beverages made with boiled water. Do not use ice cubes or eat raw seafood, rare meat or dairy products.
- Eat well-cooked foods while they are still hot and fruits that can be peeled without contamination.
- As a rule, avoid roadside stands and street vendors.
- To avoid exposure to ultra violet rays in the higher Trans Himalayan regions, wear sunglasses, wide-brimmed hats, sunscreen lotions and lip protection.
