Physical Requirements
Moderate
Although the walking involved in this program can be adjusted to accommodate a range of interests and abilities, the trip requires  walking over uneven terrain and up and down stone stairs within the Machu Picchu ruins complex. The bulk of this trip as a whole takes place at elevations between 8,000 and 11,000 feet, and guests should be prepared for possible challenges in adjusting to high altitudes. The journey begins with a flight from sea level to Cusco at 11,200 feet, with several hours of sightseeing over two days as you adjust to the elevation. The relative lack of oxygen at this elevation may manifest in altitude-sickness symptoms that can include headaches, dizziness, tiredness, nausea and vomiting during the first few hours or days of the trip. Hydration and rest usually help symptoms resolve, though participants may wish to talk with their doctor about taking along a prescription for a medication such as Diamox to better manage potential physical reactions to high altitude. On Day 3 we travel over rough, sometimes bumpy mountain roads to crest a 12,700-foot mountain pass, then descend to 9,700 feet and ascend again to 11,400 feet at Pisaq, in the span of approximately three hours.

Our visit to Machu Picchu, at an elevation of 8,000 feet, involves walking over uneven natural terrain and up and down irregular stone stairs within the ruins complex. While walking options of varying lengths are provided, all participants should be able to comfortably walk one mile and/or for one hour in such conditions. You should also be able to get in and out of vehicles with ease. We do not recommend this trip for travelers with heart or respiratory ailments or those with bad ankles, knees or hips. All activities on this trip are optional, though minimum mobility levels must be met in order to participate.
Important Information About This Trip
Our Custom Family Machu Picchu Adventures differs from others in that we have an expert Peruvian guide with the group from the time you arrive in Cusco to the time you depart. This is the only way to truly experience the nature, culture and history of this special region.
Mandatory Insurance
