What is the best course of action when experiencing symptoms of moderate altitude sickness?

If you are experiencing moderate symptoms of altitude sickness, then in the interest of your own safety, we recommend immediate descent and hospital treatment. Even if symptoms improve with descent, you should get an immediate health check locally and in any case before continuing your onward journey or boarding a plane, as you may still be at risk of developing more severe forms of altitude sickness.

Some guides may encourage climbers to keep going even if they are suffering from altitude sickness.

This is not recommended. If you notice that your symptoms are getting worse, then you should insist on descending.
