Acrophobia/Vertigo


Recommended Posts

Hi Sourav

At times, acrophobia or vertigo can make your trek even more challenging.

There are a few treks, where you will find sections with narrow trails and slopes on the sides.  A few such treks are Har Ki Dun, Bali Pass, Kuari Pass. Navigating through these sections can be tricky with vertigo.

On the Goechala trek, the trails are pretty wide and well laid out. Except for one section, which comes just before reaching viewpoint 1. This is a very small section at 15000ft where the trail is narrow and slope on one side. If you have vertigo you may require some assistance to cross this section.

If you're trekking with Indiahikes, let your trek leader and guide know about your acrophobia so that they can assist you to cross the narrow section.

Also, you can use two trek poles to balance yourselves well while trekking.

I hope this answers your question.

Happy hiking :)
