Every year thousands of people leave their home for a holiday in the mountains. Hiking, trekking, mountaineering, expeditions or winter sports, everything in the mountains could potentially lead to mountain or altitude sickness. Altitude sickness appears at certain height or with fast ascents. The symptoms of altitude sickness include:
By staying or sleeping at altitude in a high altitude tent, or training in a high altitude room, altitude sickness can be prevented and the body can get used to the thin mountain air.
Some hotels even have high altitude hotel rooms. A stay in one of these hotel rooms at altitude can be perfectly combined with your altitude training program.
