The two key things to consider hiking Mount Apo:
- Drink load of fluids
Dehydration is a key cause of Acute Mountain Sickness. The more fluids you can drink the better. Daily recommended intake is 3 litres of water. You can add an energy supplement to the water to make it taste better and always remember to add purification tablets.
- Climb high, take a nap
Climbing high, sleeping low allows your body to experience altitude for a short period before descending to sleep.
