Must Know Information 
High Altitude Sickness
High altitude sickness is a condition that can occur when our body not adapting well to having less atmospheric pressure and oxygen at high altitudes. It typically affects individuals who are not acclimatized to high altitudes and can be potentially dangerous if progresses to more severe forms without treatment. Symptoms of altitude illness can begin to occur around 8000 ft(2400 m) but serious altitude illness is rare below 10000 ft(3000 m). The body tries to adapt to the lower amount of oxygen in the air by increasing the rate and depth of breathing so you breathe faster and deeper which tries to bring more oxygen in the body. An increase in the number of red blood cells(hemoglobin) occurs after staying longer at high altitudes.
Causes of Altitude Sickness
Low atmospheric pressure: The decrease in atmospheric pressure is primarily due to the thinner air at high altitudes. Low atmospheric pressure at high altitude has several effects on the human body and develops altitude illness. 
Less oxygen:  The primary factor to altitude sickness, oxygen pressure becomes thinner at higher altitudes. This leads to hypoxia, in this condition body tissues have inadequate oxygen.
Rapid ascent: Ascending to a high altitude rapidly does not give your body enough time to adjust to the changing altitude and the reduced oxygen levels.
