Altitude is part of the challenge on some of our adventures and understanding it is the key to overcoming it. As we go higher in altitude, there is less pressure in the atmosphere. This means that the amount of oxygen in each full breath of air is less the higher we go up. Our body adapts to this by producing more red blood cells to transport oxygen more efficiently. The process of adapting is called acclimatization. In some instances, it is possible to develop symptoms such as headaches, nausea or fatigue. This is totally normal and usually goes away with time. The best methods to avoid illness are preventative. That’s why we emphasize a slow pace, eating well, staying hydrated and getting lots of rest. Don’t worry about altitude. Your experienced LHO team is equipped to diagnose, manage and treat any symptoms should there be a need for it.
