Altitude Sickness

Altitude  sickness  is a  major  risk  in the Himalayas, Particularly  above  10,000  feet. Most  people  will  feel  short  of  breath  as  they  acclimatise, however  headaches, vomiting, diffculty  sleeping, and  the  onset  of  pulmonary  oedema  or  fluid  on  the  lungs  are  serious.

 

It  is  very  important  to  acclimatise  slowly  in  the  Himalayas  and our  guides  will  ensure  you sleep  at  a  lower  altitude  tan  the maximum  you   reached   in  the  day.

 

It  is  also  important  not  to  get  dehydrared  and to stop and rest  when  you  need  to.,Any  of  the  above  symptoms  need  to  be  taken  seriously. Altitude  sickness  or  acute  mountain  sickness  (AMS)  can  be  fatal  and the onset  of  pink  frothy  liquid  round  the  mouth  and  nose, breathlessness, at  rest, severe  headaches, lack  of  co-ordination  and  vomiting  should  be  treated  as  AMS  and  the  person  will  need  to  descend  rapidly. Descent  is  the  only  treatment  for  this  very  serious  condition.
