Handling altitude sickness

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can occur to anyone at an altitude above 10,000 feet – which is the average elevation of Spiti Valley. To avoid AMS, it is extremely important to acclimatize well to the conditions and the altitude. Once you reach Spiti Valley, it is advisable to take complete rest for a day before starting any physical excursion. AMS can be alleviated or avoided by slowing the pace of ascent. It is for this reason that we usually recommend a minimum of seven days for a tour of Spiti valley. This gives the body plenty of time to adapt to the increasing altitude.
