I highly recommend trekkers who are not familiar with basic 1st aid practices to take up a basic FIRST RESPONDER'S COURSE with an outdoor center that offers it. This will come in very very handy in the event of an accident and also in the event you are hurt and dont have a trained medical trekker or guide with you. It takes 4-7 days to complete but its well worth the time and money if you are heading out to Nepal or anywhere for that matter:

If you need more information on the course, please do msg me....
