Albuquerque's altitude is over 5,000 feet, at least one mile above sea level. The surrounding mountains are even higher. If you come from a sea level place or are used to lower altitudes, it would be wise to learn about altitude sickness and how to prevent it. Albuquerque has very low humidity, so drink a ton of water.
