Ques :- How long does it take to get acclimatize?

Answer :- Most people abruptly going to a height of 3500mts naturally feel a difference. Your body reacts and behaves differently in rarified air at high altitude. Allow some time for these adjustments in your body to less oxygen (hypoxia) by slow physiological process called Acclimatization.

Time taken for acclimatization varies from person to person; usually you have to take complete rest for the 1st day even if you are feeling fine. Drink plenty of fluids at least 34 liters .
