Altitude sickness

If you are not used to going to the mountains, then you are likely to suffer from altitude sickness. This can result in dizziness, vomiting and headache.

Motion sickness

Motion sickness can occur even in travelling through the plains, but it gets heightened when travelling in high-altitude areas with narrow roads. This can induce nausea and vomiting.

Difficulty in breathing

Due to less oxygen being available in such areas, breathing problems may arise. If you are a regular smoker, then you are more likely to suffer from this issue.
