What to eat during the ascent to the high mountains

Ascent to Lenin Peak requires physical and psychological stamina. Your food should be high in calories and varied. In the base camp and the first camp, breakfast, lunch and dinner are organized by professional chefs, but in higher camps you will have to take care of cooking. In difficult conditions of high altitude cooking should not take a lot of time and efforts.

First of all, food should be nourishing, tasty, lightweight and easy to cook. It is known that taste is dulled at the high altitude, use various spices during cooking. During the walking between camps, keep on hand snacks, preferably carbohydrate.

>Перекус

Dishes that you will use for cooking should be without damages and easy to wash. Do not leave it unwashed as this can lead to intestinal infections. To boil water quickly and save gas, use a cap (cover your pan or pot). Food should be cooked quickly, as it is critically important in the conditions of high mountains and cold.

>Посуда

Take under control how much water you drink. Do not allow dehydration.

A high content of mineral salts can lead to indigestion. It is necessary that such water is settled, and then it can be filtered or boiled. Avoid drinking water near the path where many people are walking.

Products for high-altitude camps can be purchased in Osh city or at the bazaar.
