What to expect
All of our treks and cultural packages are once in a lifetime unforgettable experiences, so be prepared to immerse yourself in the mystical energy of an ancient Civilization, filled with history and adventure.
To fully enjoy the beautiful breathtaking sights, there are a few things you must consider before even arriving to Cusco.
Altitude sickness. Yes, it is a thing – for some people, at least -, but don’t worry, all you need to do is allow yourself a little time to acclimate. During your first day at altitude, walk slowly, and eat lite meals – since altitude tends to slow digestion significantly -, so stay away from fatty foods, red meats, and specially: alcohol.
Prepare yourself physically. You don’t have to become an Olympian, but exercising daily well in advance will make a difference, and start hydrating.
There is medication such as acetazolamide and “soroche pills”, that have been known to help prevent “soroche”, but first make sure you consult with your doctor before taking any medication. Also most hotels provide free coca and muña infusions to help with acclimatization.
Come prepared for all seasons. As you gain altitude, temperature variations become more extreme: One morning you could find yourself experiencing a freezing chill, and that same afternoon a blazing sun, and out of the sudden it’ll be snowing, then dry up, and at night it could be chilly again. So, layer up!
The average temperatures for the region are: highs of 19.6°C (67.3ºF), and average lows of 4.2°C (39.6ºF), except during the months of June and July with lows closer to 0°C (32ºF).
The rainy season goes from November to March.
For safety reasons, none of our experiences are pet friendly, but we can arrange boarding for your furry one.
If you have any dietary restrictions or preferences, please let us know as soon as you book your tour. We can accommodate anything you need, usually at no extra cost.
And, prepare your Wow factor. Brace yourself for a constant state of awe, so get ready to witness the most breathtaking sights one could ever imagine.
