Certain climatic stimulating factors of the high mountains such as temperature conditions, wind, irradiation of UV light and air pressure ratio have a favorable effect on the organism.


Pollen-reduced environment - even during the main flowering season.


The air is too thin, therefore house dust mites are not viable at this altitude. High air purity due to low air pollution - no car through traffic.
