The Ladakh Chapter

Ken Agrawal (Founder)

Visiting Ladakh is a longtime dream for many, as it was once for me. I dropped out of college and worked in a BPO in Mumbai to sponsor my first one-way trip to Ladakh, in search of a job.
Little did I know that the land I was obsessed with for years, had so much in store for me.
Now having operated innumerable tours in Ladakh, I’ve come to understand the importance of providing an unforgettable experience for my guests, who like me, have probably been dreaming of visiting Ladakh since years.

High Altitude Sickness

What is AMS?

AMS is a short form for Acute Mountain Sickness. AMS is the effect on the body when it is exposed to a high altitude environment. This is due to the lower level of oxygen at that altitude and the body’s inability to cope with rapid change in oxygen levels.

AMS impacts a person at altitudes above 8,000 feet (2440 meters). The occurrence of AMS depends on the altitude, the rate of ascent, and the individual ability to cope with lower oxygen levels.

 

Symptoms of AMS

Symptoms of mild AMS are dizziness, headache, muscle ache, insomnia, nausea, loss of appetite, rapid heartbeat, and shortness of breath with physical exertion and swelling of hands, feet and face.

Symptoms of severe AMS are coughing, chest congestion, lack of balance, pale complexion and skin discoloration.

 

Treatment for AMS

Usually, once the body has adapted to the change in altitude, the symptoms of AMS fade away.

In case they don’t, the best thing to do is to descend to a lower altitude. In most cases, with descent, symptoms of AMS tend to go away. In any case, avoid further ascent at any cost.

Severe cases may need supplemental oxygen or even hospitalization.

 

Prevention of AMS

The best way to avoid AMS is to ascend gradually. And one should always follow the golden rule of staying hydrated during the journey.

There are medicines like Diamox which are available to help in the acclimatization process, but do consult a physician before consuming these medicines. They tend to have side effects.
