I’ve never been to altitude before. What should I worry about in going there?

Nothing ! Going to altitude is a pleasurable experience providing you don’t ascend too quickly. Do pay attention to changes in your functioning; monitor how tired you are and your recovery time from an activity. If you’re not doing so well, don’t raise your sleeping altitude until you are feeling better. If this doesn’t work, go down to the altitude at which you first noticed any symptoms of altitude illness.
