why do mountaineers carry oxygen cylinders with them ?

Asked by Pratik(DELHI PUBLIC SCHOOL) , on 7/10/12


As height increases the atmospheric pressure decreases. Therefore when we move up the oxygen available for breathing becomes less and so the mountaineers need to carry oxygen cylinder to ensure sufficient oxygen supply.
