High Altitude Info
High Altitude Problems
When people book their tour to Peru, mainly Cusco city, they start asking and wondering about altitude sickness, since this city is located at high altitude along the Andes Mountain at 3300masl (10.826ft) so according to the doctors in this high altitude the air contains less oxygen. That is the way, we recommend to all the travelers coming here to Cusco Peru to spend at least two days at this place, before starting any hikes through the mountain, but you can start with the day tours.
So the symptoms from a high altitude will be, like headaches, no appetite and just being out of breath and sometimes just feeling sleepy, in other to be okey with high altitude, just drink plenty of water and eat just the easy digest food, like bland soup and no meat and no alcohol and moreover the coca tea is the best since the coca bush contains alkaloid, which helps to bring more oxygen to your blood or in the other hand, you can use the pills named Diamox for high altitude, which is recommended by the doctor.
