|Clothing and shoes:
Though Mt Elbrus is a steady climb, it should not be taken lightly. You
should consult your doctor to check you are medically fit to endure a
strenuous activity and able to acclimatize without injury. It is mandatory
that you are physically fit for the trek. Prior hiking to higher altitudes
will be beneficial, not must, for acclimatization during the actual climb.
Please do some cardio exercises like swimming, jogging, cycling.
Walking/running up the stairs with a back pack improves the Muscles and
stamina. BMC will organize some warm up treks before the Elbrus Climb.
Altitude Sickness, often known as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is
particularly an important consideration while trekking in high altitudes.
Altitude Sickness means the effect of altitude on those who ascend too
rapidly above elevations of 3000m. The initial symptoms of AMS are as
- Nausea, vomiting
- Loss of appetite
- Insomnia / sleeplessness
- Persistent headache
- Dizziness, light headache, confusion
- Disorientation, drunken gait
- Weakness, fatigue, lassitude, heavy legs
- Slight swelling of hands and face
- Breathlessness and breathing irregularly
- Reduced urine output
These symptoms are to be taken very seriously. In case of appearance of any of the above symptoms any further ascend should be reconsidered; otherwise more serious problems may occur which can even cause death sometimes within a few hours. The only cure for the Altitude Sickness is to descend to a lower elevation immediately.
Read more about AMS, HAPE and HACE and Diamox usage from the internet and consult your physician for the same.
