Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) can occur to anyone at an altitude above 10,000 feet – which is the average elevation of Spiti Valley. Common symptoms of AMS are headache, disturbed sleep, loss of appetite, nausea, coughing, irregular breathing, breathlessness, lack of energy, difficulty in passing urine, lack of concentration and chest gurgles.
The experienced staff of Spiti Holiday Adventure has been well trained to handle travellers who suffer from AMS. Painkillers and extra fluids can usually reduce the discomfort of altitude sickness but if a traveller ever shows persistent symptoms, we always descend to a more comfortable altitude to be safe.
To avoid AMS, it’s extremely important to acclimatize well to the conditions and the altitude. Once you reach Spiti Valley, it is advisable to take complete rest for a day before commending any physical excursion. AMS can be alleviated or avoided by slowing the pace of ascent. It is for this reason that we usually recommend a minimum of seven days for a tour of Spiti valley. This gives the body plenty of time to adapt to the increasing altitude.
You could choose to pack the following items which will come handy when you go on your Spiti Valley Trek:
1) Windproof Jackets (heavy / feather if you are coming before June and after October)
2) Pullovers / Sweatshirts
3) Warmers / Thermals
4) Woolen caps, mufflers, gloves and socks
5) Raincoat (not necessary – but good to have one)
6) Waterproof / snow-proof trekking shoes
7) An extra pair of shoes
8) Sleeping bag (if you are trekking on your own)
10) Personal Medicines
11) Water bottle
12) A flashlight
13) Solar chargers / Power banks
14) Lip guard
17) Inhalers (if you suffer from asthma)
18) BSNL Prepaid / Postpaid SIM Card
If you are buying new shoes for your Spiti Valley Trek, please remember to use them for at least a month before you commence your holiday.
