....Those snow-capped peaks in an unknown and unexplored part of Perù fascinated me greatly. They tempted me to go and see what lay beyond. In the ever famous words of Rudyard Kipling there was .. Something hidden! Go and find it! Go and look beyond the ranges- Something lost behind the ranges. Lost and waiting for you ... Go!!! Hiram Bingham, 1909

- Acclimatisation.- Acclimatisation is a process of adjusting to the reduced oxygen pressure in the atmosphere at high altitude. This process differs for everyone and there are no rules as to who will suffer the effects of high altitude. The problem with altitude is that as you go higher, the air becomes thinner and less oxygen is available. At first, the rate and depth of your breathing increases, later you get an increase in heart rate and increase in number of red blood cells and their ability to use oxygen. Although you can acclimatise sufficiently in 3 days or a couple of days to a particular altitude. Being in excellent physical condition does not aid in acclimatisation, nor does it make you less prone to altitude sickness. On flying from sea-level to La Paz or Cusco, everyone feels the effects of altitude to a certain degree. The symptoms are headaches, breathlessness, feelings of dizziness, insomnia, and lost of appetite. You can help alleviate it by drinking lots of water or better Coca tea (tea made from coca leaves), avoiding alcohol, sedatives or any other mind-altering substances and heavy and hard to digest food (high-carbohydrate meals), and above all by resting. Acclimatisation is achieved when the heartbeat is normal at rest, you can eat and sleep well and have no headache.
- High-altitude sickness.- Acute mountain sickness (AMS), cerebral oedema and pulmonary oedema. Acute mountain sickness (AMS) know locally as Soroche is the most common of the three variations. The symptoms of AMS or altitude sickness, which usually develop six to 12 hours after exposure to altitude, are severe headache, nausea, and sleeplessness, drinks lots of water or lots of coca tea with sugar.
- Remedies for Altitude sickness, AMS, or Soroche.- Given the altitudes many people habitually travel to and live at, it`s not surprising that many local remedies are advocated for treating altitude sickness. Probably the best know remedy is mate de coca, (tea made from coca leaves) or chewing coca leaves, but others include tea made from the leaves of various high altitude plants. Coramina glucosada, Effortil, Micoren or Sorojchi, a blend of Micoren, caffeine and aspirin. These remedies may help alleviate some of the symptoms (although rest, painkillers and oxygen will have the same effect), but they won`t affect how quickly you acclimatise.
- Fitness.- Trekking can be a moderate - strenuous activity, particularly if you`re not in peak physical condition, so make sure what you are planning is within your capabilities and that there is some flexibility built into your plans.
- Training.- If you can, some pre-trek fitness training is a good idea, and will reduce the likelihood of sprains, falls and overuse injuries. Start to get fit at least a couple of months before you leave, it is much better to walk briskly in hilly country than to run along level roads. Cycling is also a good way of preparing for trekking, since it involves most of the same muscles, this will strengthen the thigh muscles which in turn protect the knees.
- Equipment.- Make sure you are fully prepared for the environment conditions you`re likely to encounter and take a well stocked personal medical kit.
- Footwear.- Running shoes and sandal are not much use on a trek if rough terrain, so unless you can get hold of a decent pair of walking boots.
- High altitude trekking.- Make sure you know what to look for and what to do if you develop signs of altitude illness.
- Sunburn.- The combination of equatorial sun and high altitude makes sunburn a real danger to hikers in the Andes. Protect yourself with long, loose clothing and a really good suncream made for skiers or mountaineers, with a protection factor of 20. Lipsalve is essential to prevent cracked lips and should contain sunscreen, and remember how vulnerable your nose is. Wear a broad-brimmed hat and a long-sleeved shirt, at least until you have built up a protective tan and, if wearing a T-shirt, protect the back of your neck with a bandana or neckerchief.
- Travel Insurance.- Check that your insurance covers you for trekking, and consider joining a local emergency rescue organisation.
- The best camp sites along the Inca Trail trek.- Our first campsite is at Ayapata camp (3,200 masl) and second camp at Chaquicocha (2,900 masl) are the best campsites from the entire Inca Trail trek, (not crowded and very tranquil sites). Our 3rd night camping is in Wiñaywayna campsite
- 100% of our groups achieve to this campsite, which is only 2 hours near Machupicchu and 1 hour to the Sun`s Gate on Day 4 th early. Late bookings are often with Phuyupatamarca campsite due to lack of camping spaces in Wiñay-wayna and it is from 4 to 5 hours to reach Machupicchu.... so book early.
