Pre-Acclimatization for the climb: We recommend you to add some extra hiking days ahead to the climbing program for a better Acclimatization. We can extend the program due to your wishes.
Altitude: The human body can adapt to high altitude (starting from around 2500 m). The process of adapting to the decrease in oxygen concentration in the blood in the altitude is called Acclimatization. It is the body’s natural means of avoiding altitude sickness. The time of acclimatization depends on the altitude, rate of ascent, and individual susceptibility. A number of changes must take place for the body to operate with decreased oxygen. Among other things, the most important behaviors in the altitude are:
- Take it Easy
- Stay hydrated
- Eat right
- Ascent during the day, descend for the night
- Slow progress in altitude increases your change for summiting successfully
- Be honest with yourself. If you feel headache or bad otherwise, descend to lower altitude
