This can become a serious problem. It results through failure of the body to adapt to high altitude. It can affect anyone regardless of age or fitness. It usually occurs once you pass 1800 metres above sea level. In general, you should not ascend more than 300 metres a day after you reach the height of 3000 to 4000 meres until you have acclimatized. Poor acclimatization results in headaches, nausea, sleeplessness, irregular breathing and swelling of fingers and glands. The only way to fight altitude sickness is to descend as fast as possible. A descent of 1000 metres normally brings about rapid recovery. We have planned our routes carefully to ensure proper acclimatization. Cases of mountain sickness are rare on our trips. However, we stress that anyone who develops a headache at high altitude to consider it as an early symptom of mountain sickness and inform the trek leader immediately. People may have headaches for other reasons, but the possibility of mountain sickness cannot be ignored.
Boots must be comfortable and they must support the ankle. It is essential to break in new boots well in advance of your trek. They should be hiking, not mountaineering boots.

A thick pullover is essential for early mornings and evenings. Track suit is highly recommended. T- Shirts are ideal for everyday wear at lower altitudes; two or three are enough for one trek. Once warm, but light shirts is good for high altitude.
