For altitude mountain sickness or AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness), the best is proper acclimatization and taking good rest, and drinking enough fluids like water, warm soup, and light green tea or hot lemon. Walking high and sleeping low is another good way of acclimatizing to high altitude. Trekkers with these symptoms should descend to a lower level with accompanying guides, staff, and close friends or relatives. In a very severe situation immediate rescue medical evacuation taking Helicopter service back to Kathmandu or the nearest city with good hospitals. But on this trek hardly people get altitude sickness as elevation gains slow and gradually and staying overnights at certain heights and walking slowly will prevent you from catching altitude sickness.
