Tips for Vacationing at High Altitude
For those who travel to Durango from some areas of the world that aren't used to being 6,512 feet above sea level you may need the following tips to get your body accustomed to the high altitude.
- First and foremost stay hydrated! This is the most important element to battling altitude sickness. Drink twice the amount of water you normally consume.
- Limit your intake of alcohol, tea, coffee or other diuretics, which may contribute to dehydration for the first few days of your trip.
