Safe altitude for children
About the impact of high altitude on children, doctors got various options and there is no irrefutable data on the issue.
The important point is that, kids should be old enough for performing mountaineering activities.
The baby should be old enough to know right and wrong, correct and incorrect route, and being happy and healthy than sick.
If your baby is too young -for example below two years old- and hardly is able to speak, how he/she is going to inform you that he/she does not feel well?
Sometimes, the baby in order to show you his/her dissatisfaction, fatigue, and/or tough situation starts crying. When the baby started crying, you should withdraw climbing and go down the mountain.
For instance, if the place where the baby lives is near the sea, for the first year, he/she should not climb higher than the altitude of 2300 meters. After one year the baby becomes acclimatized to the altitude of 2300_2500 meters.
The second and third year of mountain climbing, the child may try to reach him/herself to the altitude of 3900 meters. At the fourth year, the child may try altitude of 4200 meters and the next year up to 5000 meters.
Above the altitude of 5000 meters, the baby should take special and scientific approved mountaineering exercise under supervision of a professional coach and a medical doctor.
Thus, if your baby intends to climb mountains above 5000 meters, he/ she needs at least five years to adopt his/her body to the altitude.
If in exceptional situations, you have to take the baby to high altitudes, the baby should not stay at high altitude more than 6 hours.
If the baby stays at high altitude more than 6 hours, it will show symptoms of altitude sickness such as dizziness, shortness of breath, fatigue, loss of energy and sleep problems.
