I had my worst AMS ever at base camp, throwing up, head spins, nausea etc. Once acclimatised and on the diamox, I was fine. As you are undoubtedly know, one person's anecdotal experience means almost nothing to another person.

I am sure you will get used to living in tents, there is not much choice. I hope who ever you are going with provides a nice base camp tent, that makes a big difference.


I'm going with a Swiss organisation (and a Swiss guide) so hopefully the base camp tent should be ok... u are "allowed" to make fun of the French!
