Are UK commercial expeditions complying with wilderness medical society guidelines on ascent rates to altitude?
J Travel Med 2011 May-Jun; 18(3):214-6JT

Abstract

The incidence of acute mountain sickness can be reduced by ascending slowly to altitude. We compared a recommended ascent rate with those offered by commercial companies to three of the most popular high-altitude destinations in the world. While the majority complied with the recommended ascent rate, ascents on Kilimanjaro did not.
