Everest Ayahuasca Tours: new age restrictions

Just a quick note to alert those who may be traveling to Mt. Everest soon. Those ayahuasca tours now have an age restriction. Parents will no longer be allowed to bring any child younger than 10 months on the tours. Already there has been backlash from the travel blog community.
I am done. The end.

What's the elevation? Probably tough on a baby's little lungs at 15,000 feet + if they are used to breathing at sea levels.

I know nothing about Asian ayahuasca tours, something about the South American. But in general mind-altering activities of all kinds are, I believe, best done without children of any age in attendance, especially in an unfamiliar setting, with possible hazards other than the drugs. If I were the rule-maker I'd have asked that no one under 18 yo be part of the experience.

Never heard of ayahuasca, having looked it up am in entire agreement.

Anyone that decides to travel 5000m up a mountain to take hallucinogenic drugs is somewhat lacking in judgement but it’s their choice. Any parent that takes a child along should be reported to the authorities for child abuse.

We are closing the thread. Per zebec, this is an April Fool's joke. Fake News
