Abstract: Circadian rhythm is essential for the organism since it allows anticipatory metabolic regulations to prepare for up-coming feeding or rest period. Disturbances of the biological rhythm predispose to metabolic disorders such as obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension and diabetes. Moreover, certain pathological events, such as cardiovascular accidents occur more frequently at specific time of the day. In this investigation we have confirmed circadian clock work functions well in Himalayan residents at an altitude of 4, 500 m. Thus, it is speculated some kinds of the specific environment, such as hypoxic, hypobaric, cold, or windy conditions may play an important role in the coordination of keeping health and the circadian output.
