While trekking the High Himalayan trails, altitude sickness can pose a significant challenge, especially at elevations between 2,500 to 3,500 meters. Our experienced guides at Tourist Link Treks prioritize your safety and are well-equipped to recognize and manage symptoms of altitude sickness. Our meticulously planned itineraries include ample rest and acclimatization days to minimize the risks associated with high altitudes.

Altitude sickness can manifest in various forms:

  1. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS): This is the most common and mild form, affecting around 90% of trekkers. Symptoms include headaches and dizziness, and recovery can be aided by rest, hydration, and medication.
  2. High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE): A severe and potentially fatal form of altitude sickness that affects the brain. Symptoms include breathing difficulties due to fluid accumulation in the lungs. Urgent descent and oxygen supply are crucial, and immediate medical attention is necessary.
  3. High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE): Another severe form that affects the lungs, with symptoms such as loss of consciousness and hallucinations. Urgent descent and rescue are vital in extreme cases.

Your safety is our priority at Tourist Link Treks. Please feel free to contact our travel experts for detailed trip information and bookings.
