Getting ready for Altitude

Getting ready for Altitude
6 January, 2016 Aventuras Patagonicas

Our guide Mili called from base camp. Everyone is fine and preparing for carry the loads to camp 1 (16,000ft) tomorrow. It will be the team first steps in height.

So they are hoping to be ready to move to Camp 1 the day after tomorrow. Carrying to higher altitude and sleeping at lower altitude helps the body to adjust to the thin air, to then move to a higher camp.

We attach a picture of the trial to Camp 1 from a previous group.

We will keep you posted.
