i’ve been feeling feverish since the Shivapuri hike … My whole body is aching even two days after the hike…especially the thigh, calf muscles, and ankle & feet joints…since i’m used to Kathmandu’s sedentary life style, a few hours uphill trek turned out to be an extreme adventure for my systems…i can feel the hot urine even when i’m taking enough water. Even the resting pulse was faster and stronger until the next day after the hike.
All these despite the fact that i’m on a BP pill that lowers my resting heart beat. Now i understand why they insist on training your body with cardio & muscle exercises before a trekking trip. From my one day of hiking experience, i’d suggest all trekkers for practicing brisk walking at least 3 hours everyday – a month ahead of their trek journey of easy grade in Nepal mountains.
