Question of the Month
How can I predict how I will cope with altitude?
To be honest, this is an 'unknown' factor as no-one can predict how your body will cope at altitude. People who have been to altitude many times in the past without problems, may suddenly develop problems. There are many factors that play a role. The way to help combat this, is to take all necessary precautions, and walk slowly, acclimatise correctly, don't ascend too quickly and drink plenty of water.
If you have a question you want answered, send it to us. We publish one per month.
