The trek requires a good level of fitness - you will be hiking for around six - seven hours each day. We recommend that you train by doing any sports or exercise (e.g. jogging) twice a week in the run-up to your trip.  

The average group size is 8 people, with a maximum of 12.  

While the itineraries are designed to allow for adequate acclimatization 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 acclimatize 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. our Guide takes oxigen tang and satellite phone.

You will average around 8 to 10 miles per day.  

2 nights in Camping, the tents are 4 person tents which are shared by 2 trekkers. and 1-night hotel in Matrimonial or double room in Aguas Calientes. 

Yes - there will be a group of trained chefs joining you. Just let us know your requirements before you arrive. 

They will make mind-blowingly amazing meals for you three times a day, All food restrictions are honored and there is always plenty (some say “too much”!) for everyone.   

There will be a portable toilet at each campsite you stay at. They are regularly maintained by the staff.  

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 Ausangate area is cold.

The night before the trek you will have a briefing in our office at 6,30pm, your guide will meet with you and overview the hike with more details, he will give you a duffle bag in which you can put all of your things for the hike and we will take that for you on the hike. You will also need a small day bag, which you will carry yourself. Expect to carry about 5kg of weight in this bag e.g. water, suncream, waterproofs, phone, passport etc.  

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.  

We will send some professionally trained chefs on the trek with you. They will prepare fresh food each day. Most dietary requirements are catered for e.g. vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, food allergies etc.

Our guides will provide you with clean water throughout the whole trek. This water is collected from each campsite, boiled and filtered. When traveling in countries such as Peru, it's important to maintain vigilance with hygiene and food safety. Bring plenty of hand sanitizer.  

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.  

Our service from door to door, we will pick you up and drop off you in your hotel 

Cusco is at 3400m / 11,150ft, so you will feel some of the effects of altitude straight away. If you can arrive a few days earlier, then this will give your body more time to adapt. You will need to book any extra nights accommodation.  

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

Porters will carry up to 7.5 kg of your personal items. This must include your sleeping bag and air matt. You can rent a sleeping mat, pillow, poncho for free when you arrive in Peru. Just ask one of your guides! You will be provided with a duffel bag, for all your things upon arrival.
