why do mountaineers carry oxygen cylinders with them ?

Dear Student,
Answer to your question is as follows :

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