Last year I went with my Parents who are 57 +. We didn't face such problems. We took one small oxygen cylinder with us but we never used it.

It is ok if they don't have serious problem and first do complete body checkup and consult a doctor then there is no problem otherwise take oxygen cylinder for any emergency

Dear Anindita, acute mountain sickness does not matter with respect to age, gender or physical fitness. It can happen to anyone and of any age. So, yes, as much as you can go yourself to Ladakh, you can surely take your parents provided they are in healthy condition and can endure the fatigue of this long journey. You should plan a relaxing and comfortable itinerary for your Ladakh trip when taking your elder parents. If they are on medication or have any existing illness, make sure you consult your doctor only after the doctor’s approval travel to the high altitude places carrying proper medication.

Yes safe. Check that your father should not have any respiratory problem. Before start consult doctor and take along tablets for low oxygen absorption.
