  1. I had no idea why I had tingly fingers and never connected it to the Diamox till a friend read the sideaffects later.

    I completely underestimated Altitude sickness when we visited Cusco, until I had splitting headaches and terrible nausea. So I started taking Diamox after we arrived, and drinking heaps of mate de coca. It helped pretty quickly.

  2. Hello,

    I hope you are well. I am a female solo traveller and i’ll be visiting La Paz in December this year. I am really terrified about the crime in the city and I have been looking around for a private driver and from reading your blog post it seems as though you found a great/safe one. Is there any chance you could email me Jose’s full name and telephone number? I would really appreciate it and I will happily tell him that you recommended him.

    Thanks,

    Bianca

    1. Hi Bianca,

      Thanks for your comment! Unfortunately we don’t have Jose’s name or phone number any more… sorry about that! I recommend you ask around once you arrive.

  3. Hey thanks for this little run down. I took diamox in Nepal and didn’t get those tingles. I’m twice your size though. I suspect the shortness of breath was just the altitude – in my vids above about 3500m you can hear me breathing lol. BTW I’m thinking about La Paz specifically for the altitude before doing Aconcaqua 🙂 Cheers from Brisbane.
