All individuals who want to trek Kilimanjaro should undergo medical check prior to attempting the mountain. A basic check-up would ensure that you are fit enough to overcome all the challenges that you might encounter during your hike. Also, a medical check up could also expose any unknown health issues such as heart problems, high blood pressure or any breathing problems. Therefore a medical check up prior to your Kilimanjaro expedition is recommended.

Below Are Some Of The Issues Which You Should Ask Your Doctor:

  • Ask your doctor if you have any pre-existing medical conditions that can cause problems on the climb.
  • Ask your doctor, to know if high altitude trekking is permissible for your age.
  • If you are taking any medication, then confirm if it affects altitude acclimatization.
  • Ask if you can take Diamox with your existing prescription medicines.
