Information on AMS and Precaution Measures
High Altitude or Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a symptom that can happen to any person on high-altitude adventure walks.
Because of the high pressure and low oxygen level at specific heights, some people can feel the following symptoms:
- Shortness of breath
- Light headache
- Lack of sleep
- Less appetite
To avoid these symptoms, we design itinerary days according to adequate rest and flexible time for acclimatization at high locations. We take short walks while sleeping and resting at low places.
Another way to avoid AMS is taking slow and steady walks while stopping frequently to catch your breath. After taking it easy for two to three days, we drink at least two to three liters of fluids, such as safe drinking water.
We take adequate rest and slow, short hikes at high altitudes to catch views of the beautiful scenarios. We can also rest adequately by sleeping and resting at low altitudes.
This is extremely useful when we cannot make a high ascent. One of the best ways to prevent altitude sickness is to take it slowly while stopping overnight at a certain altitude, adjusting the new height and taking it easy for the first one or two days.
You should always bring general and specific medication as per the recommendations. This includes medications against common issues such as the following:
Along with the first aid for cuts and burns.
