"Saline Nasal Spray" Top 5 Page for this destination Weather Protection Tip by jadedmuse

Weather Protection, Machu Picchu: 10 reviews and 9 photos

Toiletries and Medical Supplies: David laughs at me because he says only someone like me would put this as a "must bring" item. But folks - why WOULDN'T you want to keep your nasal membranes moist with saline solution?! You're going to be up high where the air is dry. Nosebleeds are not uncommon, nor is the feeling of nasal congestion. This is a natural side effect of being up in a high, dry place. If you bring along a little bottle of saline solution, your nose will feel better and you'll breathe better. It's that simple!
