Altitude in Bhutan is higher than most people are used to and altitude sickness is rare in Bhutan as most valleys are less than 2,300 m, and mountain passes are around only 3000 m. Except trekking and rest of tours will not reach altitudes higher than 3,500 m.
Our trekking programs may reach up to 3,500 m to 5,000 m. We recommended our guests that keep their health observation for few days to moderately fit and let do not suffer from any lung related condition such as asthma, etc while trekking in high altitude. As we confirmed that respective guests are fits for trekking so then we continue our trek. Of course we carry related health aids with us.
