Frequently Asked Questions-(FAQ)
Is altitude sickness common? And how high is Machu Picchu?It's impossible to predict who will be affected by altitude. Your ability to adapt to high altitude is determined by your genetic makeup and has little to do with fitness or health. Most people will have no problems as long as they take the time to acclimatize properly. A full 1 day spent in Cusco (3399m), taking it very easy and drinking plenty of water is enough for some people but if you can arrange to have minimum 2 days in case of any travel disruptions as well then this is what we recommend as there is also so much to do here!. The highest point you will reaches 2500 m on the 2nd day in Machu Picchu.Will I need to bring water?We recommend that you purchase a 1.5 – 2 liter bottle of water to take with you on the day, Also, you will be able to buy water along the way and of course at Machu Picchu.Is the Machu Picchu Tour good during the rainy season?Some people actually like to go during the rainy season because there are fewer tourists but we say please be prepared for wet weather and have suitable clothes or rain jackets.Will I be able to climb Huayna Picchu Mountain?As long as you book and pay well in advance for certain dates in high season it may be necessary to pay 3 -4 months in advance, Last minute bookings of this tour will possibly miss out on permits in high season so we can include the Machu Picchu Mountain permit instead, The trail to Huayna Picchu is safe, very steep with use of chains and not recommended for those with vertigo. It is about an hour and a half round trip. and there are only 2 times during the day it can be climbed with a sign in and out security system.What is an ISIC card? How can I use it to get a discount?This card means International Student Identity Card (ISIC) and is the internationally accepted form of student identification. The government accepts ISIC for discounts for the entrance to Machu Picchu. You must scan your ISIC card to you at the time of your booking and carry your ISIC card on the trek.Will I need any extra money?It is indispensable such as the natural hot springs in Aguas Calientes (10 soles), and tips for your staff, souvenirs, snacks in Machu Picchu, bottled water, drinks, etc. You should take cash in soles.Do Tour guides speak English?Completely fluent in English .
