What Do You Mean By Acute Mountain Sickness? How Can It Be Treated?
Acute mountain sickness is a negative health effect of high altitude caused by your body’s reaction to a shortage of oxygen. The amount of oxygen present at sea level is double of that contained at 5,000m above the sea-level. Your body needs sufficient time to adjust your breathing to the higher altitude. Above 2,800m, the effect of high altitude is experienced.

What Are The Symptoms Of AMS ?
Symptoms of AMS are headache, nausea, loss of appetite, coughing, and fatigue. If you’re feeling any of these while trip, rest and discontinue your trip for that day. If your health is getting worse while resting, return back to lower altitude. You should rest until you feel okay. Then, you can continue your trip. You can always abandon your trip if you’re not able to complete it. Let your guide know if you are having troubles during the trip and act on his advice.
