Health & Safety Of Bhutan-Renok Adventures
Health and Safety
Renok-Adventures-health & Safety

The prime health affairs in Bhutan are homogeneous to those in other south Asian habours: there is a somewhat high risk of getting hold of diarrhoea, a respiratory infection, or a more exotic infection. The infectious diseases can interrupt your trip and make you feel miserable, but they are rarely fatal. If you go trekking, there are also risks associated with accidents and altitude sickness. Falling off trails, or having a rock fall on you as you trek, is rare but can happen.

  The prerequisites should be:
  •   Medicines packed in their original and labelled containers
  •   Do not travel without any health insurance
  •   Do take all the recommended vaccines by doctors.
  • Recommended items for a personal medical kit:
  •   Antifungal cream, eg Clotrimazole
  •   Antibacterial cream, eg Muciprocin
  •   Antibiotic for skin infections, eg Amoxicillin/Clavulanate or Cephalexin
  •   Antibiotics for diarrhoea, eg Norfloxacin or Ciprofloxacin for bacterial diarrhoea; Tinidazole for giardiasis or amoebic dysentery
  •   Antihistamine, eg Cetrizine for daytime and Promethazine for night
  •   Antiseptic, eg Betadine
