All Ace Holidays' itineraries are planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up at higher altitudes too fast can lead you to AMS. The higher the altitude, the less the oxygen. For example, at an altitude of 5000 m, there is 50% less oxygen. Therefore, your body needs to adapt to an environment, which has less oxygen. So, for a safe trek, it is essential for you to acclimatize. Sensible planning is, therefore, required to minimize the risk of AMS. Ace Holidays advises all its trekkers, who have heart, lungs or blood pressure problems to consult with their doctors before they begin their treks. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorders are the symptoms of AMS. Check out our “High Altitude Sickness Page (link)”. Ace Holidays' itineraries have been designed to prevent AMS as much as possible. But it is important to remember that some trekkers are more vulnerable to AMS than other trekkers.
