Prepare for the climb
As you climb higher, the air gets thinner. Each lungful at altitude gives you less oxygen, so your body has to work harder to maintain the supply to the tissues. To cope at altitude, it’s important to understand how you respond as an individual & what you can do to mitigate the altitude while in the mountains. A successful pre-acclimatisation programme will also significantly reduce the likelihood of experiencing altitude sickness symptoms, making it a much more enjoyable experience.
