Note that everyone’s perception of “difficult” or “easy” is relative! ANDES PATH PERU had people complete a trek and say it was easy, while another persons on the very same trek found it to be one of the most challenging (yet rewarding) physical feats they’d ever accomplished. There are many factors that influence your perception, including your overall fitness level and your attitude about traveling and camping in a foreign country. The elevations at which our treks take place add a layer of difficulty in and of themselves.

The Altitude in this region affects different people in different ways, but common symptoms of altitude sickness include headache, nausea, loss of appetite, trouble with sleep, and lack of energy. To help prevent altitude sickness, we recommend you always remain well hydrated, gradually expose yourself to higher elevations, exercise moderately until altitude acclimatized, and get plenty of rest. Most importantly, we suggest that you arrive in Cusco at least 2 to 3 days prior, Because altitude issues are intricately tied to dehydration, once in Cusco you should increase your fluid intake as MUÑA tea (tastes like mint) or Coca tea, makes you feel better, limit alcoholic beverages, caffeine, and aspirin, which tend to dehydrate your system

In order to guarantee your reservation we need to receive via “paypal” system, the 40% deposit of the total amount of your tour. The full balance will be due in cash upon arrival to Cusco.
