It has also asked people with blood pressure problem to consult their doctor before planning the trip. 

As Ladakh is a high altitude cold desert with a low level of atmospheric oxygen, it is, therefore, absolutely necessary that visitors reaching Leh by air should spend sufficient time for acclimatization before engaging in any physical activity. The rarefied atmosphere may cause high altitude ailments like Acute Mountain Sickness, necessitating instant evacuation of visitors who are unable to get acclimatized.

The most common symptoms of acute mountain sickness are headache, disturbed sleep and loss of appetite, nausea, coughing, irregular breathing, breathlessness, lassitude and lack of concentration. If you are reaching Leh by air, it is important to take complete rest for the first 24 hours after arrival. High Altitude Pulmonary Oedema (HAPO) and High Altitude Cerebral Oedema (HACO) are very serious forms of acute mountain sickness & require immediate medical attention. As a preventive measure, Tab Diamox 250 mg should be taken at the rate of 1 tablet twice a day for 3 days, at least 2 days before coming to Ladakh or any high altitude places.

What is not included in the package: No airport transfers at Delhi, the clients will have to arrange Delhi airport transfers on their own. In-flight meals are not included.
