Salkantay Trekking

#1 First - Your Safety

FIRST AID and RESCUE COURSE | Professional & Mountain Rescue Course
Salkantay Trekking organized a first aid and rescue course in which all its guides actively participated. The training took place over 4 days and 3 nights in the Soraypampa - Salkantay area.

FIRST AID and RESCUE COURSE is the definitive course in medical training for our trekking guides. The course is comprehensive and practical, including all of the essential principles and skills required to assess and manage medical problems in isolated and extreme environments.

Our Emergency Kit


Each ST guides have oximeter and monitor your condition as you get higher and higher in elevation to let you know the oxygen percentage you have , everyone’s body has a different reaction the altitude, and of course our guides will keep you informed and let you know if you need to take a bit of Oxygen as our guides will have oxygen tank with them.


Besides the tools mentioned above our guides will carry the oxygen tank and a first aid kit full of medicine and other tools needed to be used in the Trek, so just ask them, and they will be happy to provide , however we still suggest you bring your kit if you are taking your own medicine or any particular medication you may be taking that was prescribed by your doctor.


We carry emergency oxygen tanks for altitude sickness prevention, so we can ensure our guests a safe journey.


As part of our planning and preparation, all our tour guides use two-way radios which help us manage appropriate emergency responses, interface with first responders and save lives.


Each of our alternative treks such as Salcantay trek or Lares Trek will always have one emergency horse to use in case you are out of breath or tired; we also provide helmets when you are riding, please ask your guide.
