We recommend bringing one semi-formal outfit for dinners and encourage you to dress in simple, modest clothing for the rest of the trip. Basic personal toiletries and pharmacy items are easily accessible in Cusco or Lima.
We begin in Cusco, the Imperial city, in the heart of the Andes at 3,399 meters. Expect to be short of breath and with a slight headache for the first few days while your body acclimatizes. We recommend coca leaf tea and drinking lots of water. Weather is sunny and warm in the day and cold at night. Pack a warm jacket as the weather easily changes and sturdy shoes for cobblestone streets.
Plan for a few hours of hiking in the mountains to see ruins and make a traditional ceremony on days 2, 3, 4. Hiking in the Andes is seen as a meditative practice and will be catered to your physical ability. We do recommend moderate daily exercise for two week prior to arrival so you are able to fully enjoy the mountain experience.
Please bring a reusable water bottle. We will provide clean drinking, but please be aware that tap water in Peru is not safe for drinking. Please bring sun protection and sunglasses as the high elevation exposes you to stronger UV rays.
It is often recommended by doctors to bring high altitude medication and/or malaria medication along with routine travel vaccinations. While the vaccinations are required upon entry into the country, we have not found these high altitude elevation or malaria medication necessary. Please consult with your doctor.
Peru has an amazingly rich biodiversity that results from varied geography ranging from the high Andes Mountains to the Amazon Rainforest to desert coastal regions.

It’s stable economy and welcoming attitude make it safe and exciting place for exploration.
