Frequently asked questions about the visit

Es un trekking de aventura extrema de siete días, cruzaremos caminos que atraviesan la cordillera de los Andes y parte de ceja de selva, apreciaremos la flora y fauna y sobre todo llegaremos a Choquequirao y Machu Picchu.

Cuando visitas en un solo tour tienes la ventaja de conocer los dos sitios arqueológicos más importantes de la ciudad de Cusco, caminaras por el camino Inca y conocerás los demás restos arqueológicos poco visitados, la flora y fauna, paisajes sorprendentes, se podría decir que es uno de los mejores paquetes de trekking. 

Cuando haces el tour por separado solo tienes la opción de conocer esos centros arqueológicos, pero no todo lo que le rodea y la importancia por la cual fue construida.

Para hacer este tour es necesario contratar los servicios de una agencia de viajes, porque te brinda el personal especializado, programan tus días de caminata, alimentación, entre otros servicios que presta una agencia.

En cambio, ir por cuenta propia podría ser dificultoso, además que corres el riesgo de perderte en el camino, no contarás con un guía, la alimentación.

La mejor época para visitar estos dos sitios arqueológicos es en la temporada seca que va desde el mes de abril a octubre, hay poca presencia de lluvias, los días son más soleados y te permiten disfrutar el paisaje y tus caminatas son seguras.

Debes de saber que el camino es exigente, por lo que debes de entrenar tus piernas, hacer caminatas, trabajar la resistencia cardiovascular para cuando hagas el trekking no tengas dificultades y antes de viajar debes de aclimatarte en la ciudad de Cusco al menos 1 o 2 días.

Lo primero que debemos de hacer cuando estemos en la ciudad de Cusco es descansar al máximo por lo menos los dos primeros días, no hacer algún esfuerzo físico, hidratarse constantemente, no consumir alimentos pesados como las grasas. También puedes combatirlo con el mate de coca o algunos caramelos de coca que te ayudarán a combatir el mal de altura.

Debes de prestar mucha atención aquí: debes de llevar ropa cómoda y liviana, zapatillas de trekking, bastones de trekking, sombrero o gorro, protector solar, repelente para los mosquitos, bastante agua, snacks y si quieres algunas pastillas que te ayuden con el mal de altura.
