TOUR BRIEFING

You are given a pre tour briefing, preferably two days before trek departure. This is a  detailed information about the tour itinerary, necessary equipment, altitude, weather conditions, etc. Enquiries, and doubts  will be answered for your complete understanding of the tour itinerary.

ACCLIMATIZATION 

It is highly recommended to get gradually acclimatised, so you should arrive in Cusco 2 days prior trek departure. Altitude sickness gives you headache, stomache, hands tingling, etc.There is some medication you can take to prevent altitude sickness, for instance acetazalomide, besides it is helpful to have a coca tea; and hot  drinks to not get dehydrated. In case you get bad  altitude sickness, you need to drop lower as  final emergency  situation.
