LEVEL Mild ACTIVITY LEVEL

Easy

These activities are a walk in the park! You will be able to enjoy the scenery, history, and time with loved ones without exhausting yourself. You do not need any special training, gear, or acclimatization for an “Easy” trek or tour. Terrain will be generally flat and comfortable, highly traveled.

Middle

A step up from “Easy,” these tours require a little more physical effort but are still 100% manageable to anyone with or without adventure experience. Again, you do not need special training, gear, or acclimatization for a “Mild” trek or tour. Terrain is generally flat but with possible gentle up- and downhills.

Moderate

Before embarking on a “Moderate” trek or tour, you should be at least partly acclimatized to the high altitude of the Andes as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. These tours are still very manageable without special training as long as you have spent a day or two at high altitude. Terrain often includes moderate up- and downhill walking with possible rough patches or infrequently-traveled sections.

Challenging

“Challenging” treks or tours require that you are acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 2-3 days or more at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. You will need to be in good physical shape, and it’s recommended that you train at least some beforehand, possibly with running, biking, or strenuous workout videos. Terrain is often rough, sometimes with steep up- and downhills and often not highly traveled. Generally, these last several hours.

Formidable

These “Formidable” treks are our most difficult treks and require serious effort but are also the most rewarding. It is necessary to be in pristine physical condition. Again, you must be acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 4-5 days or more if possible at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. It is important to train physically before these treks so that your body is prepared for the strenuous nature of the trip. Generally, these last at least an entire day in infrequently-traveled areas with rough paths.

Also, Public bathrooms often charge a small fee for use, and getting change for paper can be darn near impossible.

The best places to exchange money are normally casa de Cambio (foreign exchange bureaus), which are fast, have longer hours, and often give slightly better rates than banks.

Many places accept US dollars. Do not accept torn money as it will likely not be accepted by Peruvians. Most importantly, it is best not to change money on the street as counterfeits are a problem.

Weather

¿What is the weather in Cusco – inca jungle trek machu picchu?

Certainly, Peru has three main climatic zones: the tropical Amazon jungle to the east, the arid coastal desert to the west, and the Andean mountains and highlands in between.

Therefore, in the Andes, which have altitudes over 3500m. Average daily temperatures are around 10°C (50°F), and overnight temperatures can dip well below freezing. So, travelers flying straight to Cuzco (3250m), or their hight altitude cities, should allow several days to acclimatize since altitude sickness or soroche can be a problem.

As a result, April to November is the dry season in the mountain and Andean Plateau (altiplano). The wettest months are from December to March. It rains al the time in the hot and humid rainforest, but the driest months there are from April from November.
