Ensuring the safety and comfort of both guests and the esteemed team at One Travel Destinations remains our utmost priority along the trail.
Explore our safety practices and standards to better understand the proactive role we take in your experience on the trail with us!
Guides have the job of making sure their entire team of trekkers is safe at all times, as well as our Tour Leaders team. We equip our guides with knowledge and tools that are refreshed every year.
Our guides go through extensive training in first aid every February, where they learn how to rescue and evacuate people in case of emergency, as well as how to treat major and minor problems.
ON THE TRAIL
Annual Training for Trek Teams
Ensuring the well-being of our guests is paramount. Hence, our guides undergo comprehensive training each year during our annual event in February. We enlist the expertise of a medical doctor who conducts refresher courses and evaluates their proficiency. This ensures that our guides are equipped with the necessary skills to handle emergencies, ranging from rescuing and evacuating individuals to providing appropriate medical care for major and minor issues.
Moreover, as you embark on your journey with ONE TRAVEL DESTINATIONS, our guides prioritize your well-being as you ascend to higher elevations. They monitor your condition using an oximeter, a device that measures your oxygen levels. Every individual reacts differently to altitude, and our guides will keep you informed about your oxygen percentage levels. Should the need arise, they carry portable oxygen tanks to assist.
Rest assured, our guides are committed to ensuring your safety and comfort throughout your adventure.
