If you’re not used to it, it can be a struggle. Over time your body will acclimate itself to the thin air, but it won’t happen overnight. When I was in High School, (young and fit), we went to Mexico and ran up the Pyramid of the Sun. The plain that it’s built on is over 5,000 ft., but I’m sure exactly how high it is. Nobody passed out or anything but it took a long time to catch our breath.
Just FYI, some people never get used to altitude, or at least struggle with it for a long time.
