In brief: Acclimatization

The best method to prevent high altitude illness is to limit your rate of ascent to high altitudes.
If you will be climbing a high peak, you should follow a careful acclimatization schedule, increasing sleep altitude by no more than 300m each night. If you are a casual tourist and will not be needing to maintain your aerobic endurance, acetazolamide can be used to help prevent altitude sickness.
