Preventing Altitude Sickness
The key to preventing altitude sickness is gradual ascent with regular rest days. You can also take tablets to help prevent symptoms. These work best when taken before reaching a high altitude.
Treating Mild Symptoms of Altitude Sickness
To treat symptoms, travellers should stop further ascent, rest, take painkillers such as ibuprofen or paracetamol and anti-sickness medication if needed and descend if symptoms deteriorate or do not improve.
