How Should Altitude Sickness Be Handled?
If not properly acclimatized, people may experience acute mountain sickness (AMS), also known as altitude sickness, at high altitudes. As the helicopter takes you to the high altitude in a few hours, there is a slight risk of altitude sickness once you exit the helicopter during the ABC Helicopter Tour . Your body is therefore highly susceptible to altitude sickness. You will only have 20–30 minutes to land at base camp in order to avoid such issues.

Altitude sickness is the main worry for tourists on a quick helicopter tour. From Kathmandu, which is 1,300 meters below sea level, you will travel to Annapurna Base Camp, which is more than 4,100 meters above sea level. Since you won’t have enough time to properly acclimatize during this heli-tour, it’s common for visitors to experience nausea, severe headaches, and dizziness.
However, those who are experiencing altitude sickness can use an oxygen cylinder.
It is best to move to a lower altitude right away for medical attention and treatment if you or any other group members become ill or experience other symptoms of altitude sickness. Altitude sickness, however, has a very low probability during this brief Heli tour.
