What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness, also known as acute mountain sickness (AMS), occurs when your body cannot get enough oxygen from the air at high altitudes. It commonly affects mountain climbers, hikers, skiers, or travelers at high altitudes. Symptoms typically occur within a day of traveling or climbing to a very high altitude (usually above 8,000 feet/2,500 meters). The condition can lead to severe symptoms and life-threatening complications if not treated promptly.
