Altitude sickness is the first thing that pops into many trekkers’ minds while taking on the routes of the High Himalayas. It is natural for our body to show the fundamental signs at the 2,500 to 3,000 meters altitude. Your guides are trained for these cases, and they will act accordingly taking your safety as the top priority. Similarly, Most of our itineraries are prepared in such a way that it consists of rest and acclimatization days (if necessary) before moving to a higher elevation during the trek. There are majorly three different kinds of Altitude Sickness varying in the severity of the patients, and they are: –

AMC (Acute Mountain Sickness)

  • Mild sickness common with 90% of the trekkers
  • Headache and dizziness are the general symptoms
  • Rest and hydration help in reducing AMC
  • Take generic pills if necessary

HACE (High Altitude Cerebral Edema)

  • A fatal form of sickness affecting the lungs
  • Difficulty in breathing due to fluid buildup in the lungs
  • Requires immediate decent and oxygen supply (from tanks).
  • Immediate additional medical attention is a must

 HAPE (High Altitude Pulmonary Edema)

  • A severe and lethal form of sickness affecting the Brain
  • Losing consciousness, and hallucination are symptoms due to fluid buildup in the brain
