what about altitude sickness?
As the whole expedition takes place at high altitude, you need to be aware of AMS. The most important things to remember? Stay well hydrated, move slowly, eat well and get good rest. We send an international doctor on every single one of our expeditions. It’s really important to tell them the moment you feel unwell. That way, AMS is at its most easily treatable.
