Day 01Arrival at Paro Airport from Singapore/Bangkok/Delhi/Kathmandu:

The flight into Paro on our national carrier, Druk Air, is a befitting introduction to the spectacular beauty of our country.

Can you get altitude sickness at 4000m?

While arterial oxygen transport may be only slightly impaired the arterial oxygen saturation (SaO2) generally stays above 90%. Altitude sickness is common between 2,400 and 4,000 meters (7,900 and 13,100 ft) because of the large number of people who ascend rapidly to these altitudes.

What are the early warning signs of mountain sickness?

The symptoms can feel like a hangover — dizziness, headache, muscle aches, nausea. High-altitude pulmonary edema (HAPE) is a buildup of fluid in the lungs that can be very dangerous and even life-threatening. This is the most common cause of death from altitude sickness.
