People respond to an increase in altitude differently (some experience general discomfort, breathlessness, poor sleeping patterns or limited capacity for physical exertion). Please consult with your local travel clinic or physician for specifics about altitude sickness and your personal health. We drive gradually from plain area to high mountains which allows some time to acclimatize to the increase in altitude. Most of our past passengers adjust to plateau area without difficulty.
