In Galtür on up to 2500 m above sea level the air is more rare and a so-called bracing climate and a slight oxygen deficit prevail. As the human body has to adapt to this conditions, your physical fitness is limited at first. After an initial acclimatisation period, however, your body works more economically, consumes no reserves anymore and builds new red blood cells. As a result, oxygen can be better delivered to the tissues and you feel more comfortable and relaxed – a true rejuvenating cure. Studies of Prof. Dr. Humpeler prove this.
Comprehensive medical researches have proven that the right height with the right exercises leads to the following positive health effects:
The conclusion of the medical study is that the recreational value of mountain hiking lies in the mobilisation and economisation of the forces.
