Preparation & Altitude Sickness

Every year thousands of people leave their home for a holiday in the mountains. Hiking, trekking, mountaineering, expeditions or winter sports, everything in the mountains could potentially lead to mountain or altitude sickness. Altitude sickness appears at a certain height or with fast ascents.The symptoms of altitude sickness include:

  • Headache
  • Insomnia
  • Lack of appetite
  • Nausea
  • Severe fatigue
  • Vomiting

By staying or sleeping at altitude inside an high altitude tent or training in a high altitude room, altitude sickness can be prevented and the body can get used to staying in the mountains. 

Acclimatization effects in a altitude room/tent:

  • Prevention of altitude sickness (headache, insomnia)
  • Increased endurance
  • Faster recovery
  • Enhanced performance

Some hotels even have high altitude hotel rooms. A stay in one of these hotel rooms at altitude can be perfectly combined with your altitude training program.
