When you first arrive at a higher altitude, you cannot expect that your fitness level will be the same as it was at sea level. It is important not to overdo things and take things easy initially to allow your body to adjust for the first 24-48 hours.

The physical benefits of spending time at altitude, once acclimatised, are significant when a person returns to sea level. The body becomes accustomed to operating efficiently using smaller amounts of oxygen when at high altitude. Once returned to lower altitudes, where significantly more oxygen is available in the atmosphere, the body’s ability to intake and process oxygen during exercise is greatly enhanced resulting in significant gains in aerobic and anaerobic fitness levels.
