What is AMS? How to prevent it?

During Bhrigu Lake Trek or any other trek or any other mountain expedition, we ought to travel to high altitudes. As we ascend, due to change in elevation, there is a change in various other factors such as temperature, atmospheric pressure, humidity, radiation and oxygen saturation. The temperature and atmospheric pressure gradually fall down and the ultraviolet(UV) radiation increases with an increase in altitude. Moreover, the humidity and oxygen level tends to lower down. These changes have an adverse effect on our body and sometimes our body fails to withstand it. Due to these changes, there arises a condition called altitude sickness or Acute Mountain Sickness(AMS).
