Altitude sickness is a common problem that occurs when traveling to high altitude destinations. Many people experience symptoms, these can be painful and can make it hard to enjoy your trip.
Altitude sickness can occur when you quickly travel from a lower altitude to a higher one. This is what is referred to as acute mountain sickness, or AMS. That's because your body isn't getting enough oxygen at the higher elevation.
It usually occurs at elevations above 8,000 feet (2,438 meters) -- places where there's less than half as much oxygen in the air as there is at sea level.
