There is almost 30,000 trekker’s fly to trek the majestic mountain of Africa, Kilimanjaro each year and only 50% of them reach the summit. Most of the trekkers fall sick due to the high altitude as the oxygen levels get thinner on the high altitude body find it hard to cooperate with.
Acute Mountain Sickness widely known as AMS is the biggest issue on the mountain. At about 3,600 meters (12,000 feet), barometric pressure is around 480 mmHg and the densities of oxygen molecules are comparatively low. The body deals with decreased oxygen levels by breathing faster and deeper.

How the body reacts:

  • Breathing becomes shorter

  • Fatigue

  • Headaches

  • Nausea and Dizziness

  • Shortness of breath

  • Disturbed sleep

  • Loss of appetite
