In high altitude there is no place for disrespect towards Mother Nature. Your brain will act crazy because of the lack of oxygen if you don’t pay attention, your body will collapse unless you exercise your self-awareness. There is a reason why the Buddhist Monks learned how to grow their deepest awareness here, without it one simply can’t survive. I believe this is true for every place in the world, but the effects and signs of disconnectedness are not as drastic as in the Himalayas.
