Altitude calculator

Welcome to our new Altitude Calculator

Here, you can find the altitude of every location on your travel itinerary quickly, and easily and accurately, and create a Profile to show the results in a simple graphic format.

Knowing the Altitude Profile of your trip enables us to give you the best advice about your own risk of problems with altitude sickness, with clear strategies for prevention and treatment.

When travelling to high altitude, it is important to allow enough time to acclimatize. Ascending slowly and carefully can make all the difference between a safe, enjoyable trip, and one that has to be abandoned early, perhaps missing out on the experience of a lifetime.

Acknowledgement: We are very grateful to Dr Peter Hackett MD, Institute for Altitude Medicine, Telluride, Colorado, who developed the notion of an Altitude Profile.

Please enter the details of each location you will stay at.

Your risk of altitude sickness depends on your sleeping altitude rather than the maximum altitude you may visit each day.

If you don't yet know the name of a location but have a rough idea of its altitude, add this manually for now and you can edit it later.

Add locations until your itinerary is complete (maximum trip length = 28 days).

Click on the buttons below to create a PDF of your Altitude Profile that can be emailed, downloaded and reviewed with one of our travel doctors or nurses when you come and see us.

We hope you will find this a valuable starting point for a careful discussion about the risks of high altitude travel, and all that can be done to combat them.
