Advice for travellers

If hiking or trekking at a high altitude (2,500 metres plus), it’s important to be aware of the risks of being in an oxygen-depleted atmosphere. The risks increase as you ascend and trekking itineraries should be built with appropriate time for acclimatisation. This essentially means not climbing more than 300-400 metres in altitude per day once over 3,000 metres.
