Dificulte Level

Vinicinca Hiking Dificulte Level

Note that everyone’s perception of “difficult” or “easy” is relative! Chacras Travel People had people complete a trek and say it was easy and while another person’s on the very same trek found it to be one of the most challenging (yet rewarding) physical feats they’d ever accomplished.

There are many factors that influence your perception and including your overall fitness level and your attitude about traveling and camping in a foreign country. The elevations at which our treks take place add a layer of difficulty in and of themselves.

Vinicunca Altitude & Acclimatization

The Altitude in this region affects different people in different ways but common symptoms of altitude sickness include headache and nausea and loss of appetite and then trouble with sleep and lack of energy so to prevent altitude sickness we recommend you always remain well hydrated, gradually expose yourself to higher elevations and exercise moderately until altitude acclimatized and get plenty of rest.

Most importantly we suggest that you arrive in Cusco at least 2 to 3 days prior, because altitude issues are intricately tied to dehydration and once in Cusco you should increase your fluid intake as MUÑA tea (tastes like mint) or Coca tea and makes you feel better.
