This can take a couple of days or more depending on an individual. For this reason alone, we have made it mandatory to stay 2 nights at Taklakot (12000ft) before moving on to the higher altitudes. Drink plenty of water, be calm, and do exercise. Do not drink alcohol or smoke prior to and during the tour. We also recommend you carry a strip of diamox tablets.
