HEALTH INFORMATION:

pInformation on vaccinations and other health precautions, such as safe food and water precautions and insect bite protection for malaria and dengue fever (if you are traveling in the plains) may be obtained from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's internet home page at www.cdc.gov/travel.
Do not drink any water except approved brands of drinking water. You should remove the seal yourself. No ice! Be wary of salads, uncooked vegetables, and fruits which you can't peel. Brush your teeth with bottled water or properly filtered water, NOT tap water. It is recommended that you carry bottled water with you for drinking at all times. It is readily available for sale.
Mussoorie is located at an altitude of 7500 feet, and this does present problems for some people, particularly in the first few days - you may have some symptoms of altitude sickness (headaches, nausea, dizziness). Here are some tips.
Drink lots of water.
Avoid over-exerting yourself, especially the first day.
If you feel the effects of the altitude, be sure to make yourself breathe out all the air you can, then take in new air.
To avoid sleeplessness, one symptom of altitude sickness, take Tylenol PM or Sominex at bedtime.
Drink coffee or tea which are diuretics that remove water from your system and allow oxygen to process in your body.
