Accilimatization

  • Most altitude-related illness are caused by lack of oxygen.
  • High altitudes have a lower concentration of oxygen in the air. You may be able to avoid altitude sickness by proper acclimatization.
  • It's important to take your time to travel to high altitudes. Rather than driving or flying to a high-altitude starting point, try to start low and gradually move the way up. Once you reach an altitude of 8,000 feet, many experts advise not climbing more than 1,000 feet per day.
  • Your overall health may limit how high you can safely climb.
  • See your doctor if you've had a recent heart attack, stroke, blood clot, or severe asthma attack prior to planning any mountain trekking
