High altitudes affect sleep.

The higher the altitude, the more it disrupts sleep. Usually, sleep disturbance occurs at altitudes of 13,200 ft or more. Experts point to reduced oxygen levels and altered air pressure as the main cause of sleep disturbances at these altitudes. Acclimation to high altitudes usually takes two to three weeks.
