Highlights of Machu Picchu

Peru

Cusco is the heart of Peru in many people’s eyes as it’s the most visited city by far. Cusco is filled with culture and history as it was the capital of the Inca Empire and has a lot to offer for visitors who are interested in touring local areas, experiencing a hike on the Inca trail, embracing the local culture with rich experiences and don’t get us started on the food! That’s why Alpaca Expeditions created this package to allow you to embrace the best that Cusco has to offer and take in all the big sights in a single week.

While the itineraries are designed to allow for adequate acclimatisation you are likely to feel the effects of altitude sickness and oxygen deprivation whilst on this trek. Please be aware that your guide may deem it unsafe for you to continue trekking at any time and arrange for you to descend to a lower altitude.

When you go above altitudes of 2,500m, you need to allow your body time to acclimatise properly. We advise that you move slowly, don’t rush and ensure you protect yourself from the weather. Ensure you stay hydrated and eat plenty to keep your energy levels up.  

this package is not much trekking, only short Inca trail which is arounbd 12km/7Mil and Rainbow Mountain which is about 6km/3,8Mil. then is mostly transportation and easier.

the package includes a nice hotels of 3 start, it based in double or twin room. 

The winter season and driest time of year in Peru are May - Sept. The summer season is Nov - Mar, which is the warmest, but wettest time. During the summer season, it does not rain every day, but can often have a downpour in the afternoons. Apr and Oct can sometimes see some small rain showers. we suggest bring good rain gear for any time of the year just in case. 

The currency used in Peru is Nuevo Sol (PEN) You will need to ensure that you withdraw enough PEN for your trip to the airport or in Cusco.  

It is customary in Peru to tip guides and porters. Although it may not be customary to you, it is of considerable significance to the people who will take care of you during your travels. A good rule of thumb is between $50 - $80 at the end of your trip. You can give this to the lead guide.  

some food will be at restauratn and some will be prepare by our trekking chefs. Most dietary requirements are catered for e.g. vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, food allergies etc. 

You will arrive at the gates just before sunrise, then enjoy a guided tour which lasts around 2 hours. After this, you will have some free time inside the grounds before heading back to your accommodation in Cusco.  

It is worth checking on your government's website. British citizens can check here.
