Mountain sickness is a real danger and can be fatal

Symptoms of acute mountain sickness (AMS) include headache, light-headedness, breathlessness and nausea. Sujata Sahu, founder of the 17,000 ft Foundation, explains, “Hospitals in Leh are filled with tourists who think the weather is great and take acclimatisation lightly.” If you think something’s wrong, stop or descend to the lowest possible point immediately.

Medicines such as Diamox may be prescribed by general physicians prior to the trip and help reduce the chances of AMS—in case of any discomfort, this should be your first go-to. Having said that, the body is also fully capable of adjusting to the altitude on its own, if given time. Chewing something (especially garlic and chocolates) helps keep symptoms away. Most local vehicles 

and campsites are equipped with oxygen cylinders; don’t hesitate to use them if/when necessary.

Good to know

1. Carry government-issued photo-identity proof—driving licence, Aadhaar card, PAN card, etc., which come handy at checkpoints and in case permits are required.

2. Plastic bags are banned in Ladakh, so make sure you carry biodegradable/paper bags.

3. The weather is unpredictable: it’s usually windy and can go from pleasant to chilly very quickly. Wear layers instead of bulky warmers to stay comfortable at all times.

4. Keep in mind that most establishments in Ladakh are shut during the off season i.e. the time when roads are closed.

5. Carry waterproof luggage; this will ensure that the contents of your bag remain dry in case it rains unexpectedly or you need to drive through water.

6. Remember to take spare batteries for your camera, as the altitude and cold will drain them out quicker.

7. When travelling around Leh, it’s best to avoid alcohol; drink water instead. Breathing in dry air drains the moisture from the lungs, so make sure you consume at least 4–5 litres to stay hydrated.

8. If you’re the one at the wheel, it’s important to know that driving here is different from driving anywhere else. It’s a constant mental and physical test, and covering more than 50km a day is a challenge for anybody who’s not a seasoned driver. Don’t push yourself more than you need to. “If something goes wrong, you’ll fall 1,000ft into the valley.” Take it slow and easy, and enjoy the scenery.

9. Prepaid SIM cards don’t work well in Leh, but postpaid do (Airtel, Aircel and BSNL are your best options). The main market in Leh city also has multiple STD booths.

10. Most importantly, don’t try to do too much in too little time. Ladakh is not a place that you see in a hurry.
