Night of 2nd day in Cusco
Cusco - Huchuy Qosqo
We will start our adventure with a bus transfer to Chinchero and then Tauca from where we start our journey. The morning is dedicated to the biggest difficulty of these 2 days: the passage of the Pucajasa pass culminating at more than 4300m. After a little more than 3 hours of effort we will arrive at the highest point of our trek. From there we will walk another half an hour before having our lunch. After lunch we will descend on the mythical Inca Trail to the site of Huchuy Qosqo. Depending on how much time we have left we will visit the site upon arrival or the next morning. From there we will go to Natividad, our evening guest, whose house is only a few minutes away from the old “Little Cusco”.
Night in Huchuy Qosqo.
Huchuy Qosqo - Lamay - Cusco
After saying goodbye to Natividad and her family we will visit the site of Huchuy Qosqo (if not done the day before) then we will start our descent to Lamay located at the bottom of the valley. After about 2h30 to 3 hours of effort we will arrive in this small village where our transport will be waiting for us to take us back to Cusco.
The climate varies greatly according to the regions travelled through. From April to November, the sky is clear, although light rains are always possible. In altitude, it is pleasant during the day and cold at night. So bring warm clothes, even if you can walk around in a T-shirt during the day. Beware of the sun, which is strong at high altitudes, and bring a hat, sun cream and sunglasses.
No visa is required for stays of less than 90 days. You must travel with a passport that is still valid for 6 months after your stay.
When visiting high altitude areas, adverse effects such as headaches, nausea, insomnia and fatigue affect some people. However, the trip is designed to allow our body to adapt gradually (increase in red blood cells).
All major cities have modern private clinics with care comparable to what we have in Europe. However, you have to pay on the spot and then ask for reimbursement from your health insurance company.
We advise you to check whether your insurance covers medical costs in the countries you visit and if not, to seek reimbursement. Repatriation insurance is compulsory.
Currency / Credit Cards
Dollars and euros are accepted in the shops of the big cities. There are exchange houses everywhere. However, it is better not to carry large sums of money with you.
Credit cards are accepted in all ATMs (visa, mastercard, diners, american express). The commission of the bancomat is between 5 and 10USD.
In the service sector, it is normal to leave a tip when you are happy with the service. Between 5 and 10% of the value of the service is usual.
Whenever you travel, remember to keep fit. Even for “Discovery” trips, by preparing yourself physically you will adapt more easily to the altitude and enjoy your discoveries.
For trekking trips, develop your endurance by running or practicing your endurance several times a week.
