Altitude Sickness

Proper acclimatization is necessary to prevent mountain sickness. The weather conditions might be unpredictable, so prepare for varying temperatures and conditions. Altitude sickness, called acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when one ascends to high altitudes too quickly without allowing the body enough time to acclimatize to the decrease in oxygen levels in the air. It typically occurs at altitudes above 3000 meters and can affect anyone, regardless of age or fitness level.

Symptoms of altitude sickness can range from mild to severe headache, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, lightheadedness, Loss of appetite, difficulty sleeping and shortness of breath. In severe cases, altitude sickness can lead to more serious conditions like High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) or High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE), which can be life-threatening and require immediate descent to lower altitudes and medical attention.

To prevent altitude sickness during the high-altitude trek to Everest Base Camp, gradual ascent, ascend slowly, allowing time for your body to acclimatize. Take rest days to adjust to higher altitudes. Stay hydrated, and drink plenty of fluids, preferably water or electrolyte-rich drinks, to avoid dehydration. Avoid alcohol and smoking, eat light and nutritious meals, and maintain a balanced diet to keep your energy levels up. The medication prescribed an acetazolamide (Diamox) for the altitude sickness. Advise your doctor before trekking to the high altitudes, especially if you have any pre-existing medical conditions.
