Due to high altitude, there is lower atmospheric pressure & lower oxygen density which results in High Altitude Disease. The major symptoms are nausea, headache, vomiting, breathlessness, disturbed sleep. We recommend you to Google on symptoms, precautions, remedy & prepare accordingly.
You will get good mobile connectivity throughout journey on roaming. Each Liaison Officer & our guide carry mobile phones for exigencies.
