FAQs

What are the tips to prevent Acute Mountain Sickness?
Ladakh is a high-altitude place in trans Himalayas, and when you make a trip to Ladakh, Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is always on the cards. The majority of people suffer from AMS symptoms knowingly or unknowingly, some mild and few severe. It is biology; one cannot defeat or trick it if you are not following the basics of acclimatization, that is to give time and allow your body to adapt to change in altitude.

Generally, people can go up to 8000 feet without much problems with mountain sickness. As you start to increase altitude, the barometric pressure starts to decrease, which reduces the Oxygen intake per breath. Hence, people start to suffer from AMS as the body does not adapt to the change in high altitudes.

Increase the altitude gradually
Keep your body properly hydrated
AVOID overhydration
Avoid sleeping at high altitudes
Avoid overexertion
Avoid tobacco and smoking and alcohol and other depressant drugs
Keep your body warm
Eat lots of Carbohydrates
Avoid sleep during the day
Sleep in an upright position, if possible
Carry preventive medicines for AMS
Carry Small Oxygen Kit
