How to prepare your trek in the high mountains?

Are you planning or preparing your next trek and looking for ways to prevent as many inconveniences as possible and increase your enjoyment? If so, you've come to the right place to find answers to your questions!

If you are like me, you have surely experienced all kinds of adventure hiking stories ... some even that could easily have turned into a disaster.

For example: going on a hike with people you know more or less and with whom you forgot to talk about the plan. A map? What plan? It's just a Sunday hike that was supposed to end after lunch and ended up taking double the time! Fortunately, we are not yet talking about high altitude!

Or: we go on a hike in the summer, the weather is nice, we put on our t-shirt and our shorts, we quickly look at the weather, we put our shoes on, we have a snack on the go and a bottle of water. and we're going right now. Once at the top, oops! Big cold rain that turns into hail and we are in a t-shirt like a handsome tourist going to the beach!

I could go on because the list is long and that is why I am writing to you today.

I have just completed an extraordinary online training given by the Haute Montagne Academy and which will greatly help me in the preparation of future treks. I was so satisfied that I negotiated an exceptional offer for you with the trainer Emmanuel Daigle, certified by the Canadian Association of Mountain Guides (ACMG) and by Rando Québec.

This training is the equivalent of the little Bécherel! Well explained and well combined!


Here are some of the topics covered in this training:

  • What equipment is required for a multi-day mountain trek? (complete buying guide)
  • What is altitude and what are the potential health problems? (Acute mountain sickness AMS, Pulmonary edema OPHA, Brain edema OCHA, Sleep apnea)
  • How to recognize the signs and symptoms and how to react appropriately to avoid the worst? (manage your own health independently)
  • What drugs are used for high altitude?
  • What do I need to know about temperature and climate at high altitudes?
  • What is the ideal progression to adapt and acclimatize optimally?
  • What energy supplements should we take? (bars, gels, rehydration salts)


You will also see additional columns and advice from different health specialists (cardiologist, nutrition, yoga, etc.) to support and complement the training.

I personally have confirmed experience. I did a few treks over 2,500 meters in altitude and learned a lot!
