Consider to Arrive 1-2 days Before to Hike Ancascocha Trek

The Ancascocha Trek to Machu Picchu is a demanding trek, so don’t arrive at night and expect to be properly acclimatized in time. Make sure you’ve allowed enough preparation before the hike starts by following these simple guidelines:

This means that if your arrival date will fall on Day 1 or later then allow up until noon (12 PM) for registration procedures upon arriving in Cusco; this also applies when booking hotels near Cusco Center or Sacred Valley due to its proximity to the Airport terminal which may cause traffic issues during rush hour if coming straight from the airport without having had much sleep since landing overseas.

Inca Trail Acclimatization

The Inca Trail is a tough hike, so it’s important to take time beforehand and prepare your body for the added stress of altitude. Our full four-day tour allows you plenty of opportunities throughout Cusco City (and other areas) where we can help get acclimatized while immersed among local communities at their ruins!
