5th International Leh Symposium, Gangtok, Sikkim, India


We are delighted to invite you to join the PVRI High Altitude Task Force 5th International Leh Symposium, which will take place at Gangtok, Sikkim, India, from 15-19 November 2018.

Gangtok is situated at an altitude of approximately 7,000ft in the Himalayas. One can admire the mighty Kanchenjunga (pictured above), the second highest peak and several other high peaks in the vicinity.

The organisers, Drs Qadar Pasha, Max Gassmann, K B Gurung and Forhad Akhtar Zaman, have prepared an exciting programme. Talks and expert panel discussions will provide significant insights on the application of medicine, physiology and basic science on life at high altitude, both for natives and sojourners.

The Symposium is open to all national and international clinicians, academics and researchers who have an interest in respiratory diseases in high altitude.
