Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS):
Mild altitude sickness symptoms include:
Symptoms of mild altitude sickness typically present between 12-24 hours after arriving at altitude and are common for trekkers in mountain regions. Resting for 24-48 hours at the altitude at which mild altitude sickness presents often resolves symptoms. Once symptoms have subsided at the altitude they begun, you can conclude that you have acclimatised to that altitude.
The purpose of going through the symptoms of altitude sickness above is not to scare you but rather to enlighten you of the potential conditions so that you can avoid them. It is important to remember that severe altitude illness and HACE (High altitude cerebral oedema) and HAPE (High altitude pulmonary oedema) are rare on treks. Only a few treks in the world go to extreme altitude (above 5,500m) and in general all routes in the country have good altitude profiles that allow for good descents after going over high passes.
