Machu Picchu Tickets

But undoubtedly, one of the reasons why travelers move here is to get Machu Picchu tickets. It is one of the 7 wonders of the world, the Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the most chosen of Cusco tours, and one of the most precious treasures of Peru.

Altitude sickness in Cusco

Cusco is located at 3,399 meters above sea level. Therefore, the oxygen level is not the same as you may be used to and this can cause some symptoms of what is known as altitude sickness.

These symptoms can be shortness of breath, chest tightness, coughing, lack of appetite, or sleep disturbance among others. Don't worry, none of this has to happen. Like everything, in each person, it affects in a way or directly does not.

To try to prevent or reduce these symptoms, keep your body hydrated, eat lightly, and do not overexert yourself.

If you are going to choose between the different Cusco tours, it is better to leave for the end of your stay the mountain excursions such as Vinicunca, Salkantay, or Machu Picchu where the altitude changes are abrupt. The best is that you dedicate the first day to see the city with the Cusco City tour, and in this way, give your body time to get used to the altitude sickness. 👌
