AMS

Hi All
Good Day
Some of you may ponder what if I get AMS and what is AMS all about , please refer to the website

http://www.altitude.org/altitude_sickness.php

It is hard to determine who will be affected by altitude sickness, usually I will notice above 2500 meters at Villosa hut Mt Kinabalu , some hikers will be affected and usually these hikers are fit and fast

My opinion , if you have not been taking AMS pills before, please don’t take however I am sure that some people will say take it as precautions.

If you want to buy for your own use , please ask your doctor or Pharmacists for advise.

Having a buddy with you along the way will be good and keep on encouraging each other.

Just be relax and enjoy the hike , have the adventure spirit in you.

Last but not least, hike at your own pace, don't have to rush
