"High Altitude Sickness" Top 5 Page for this destination Ladakh Range Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Saagar

Ladakh Range Warnings and Dangers: 19 reviews and 10 photos


Many people get caught unawares of altitude sickness just by coming to Leh, the provincial capital. It's not really "only" since the altitude here is about 3500-3600 meters. Danger of altitude sickness may occur even as low as 2600 meters. People's suceptibility of this condition varies greatly.
To avoid it you need to ascend slowly. To overcome it you need to descend - not easy in Ladakh....
See medical advice on this condition prior to going to Leh or other parts of Ladakh.
