A True Claims Story

I was on a full-day tour to Chacaltaya and Valle de la luna and later that night I was unable to sleep as I started to get dizzy, had difficulty breathing, and had strong pains in my chest. The next morning I contacted World Nomads emergency assistance and I was directed to Clinica del Sur from La Paz, where I stayed 24 hours under medical surveillance being treated for altitude sickness. After being discharged from the hospital, I continued on my next tour, yet suddenly I felt a strong pain in my chest and headache, so I returned to the medical clinic for an hour of oxygen treatment. The next morning I flew back to Lima (sea level).
