Mountain Living

Units deploying to high elevations must receive advanced training to survive in the harsh mountain environment. Normal activities (navigation, communications, and movement) require specialized techniques. Training should be conducted as realistically as possible, preferably under severe conditions so the soldier gains confidence. Extended training exercises test support facilities and expose the soldier to the isolation common to mountain operations. Training should reflect the harsh mountain environment and should consider the following:

  • Temperature and altitude extremes
  • Hygiene and sanitation
  • Limited living space (difficulty of bivouac)
  • Clothing requirements

  • Survival
  • Acclimatization & Conditioning
  • Medical Considerations
