Vinicunca Altitide & Acclimatization
The Altitude in this region affects different people in different ways, but common symptoms of altitude sickness include headache, nausea, loss of appetite, trouble with sleep, and lack of energy. To help prevent altitude sickness, we recommend you always remain well hydrated, gradually expose yourself to higher elevations, 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, once in Cusco you should increase your fluid intake as MUÑA tea (tastes like mint) or Coca tea, makes you feel better, limit alcoholic beverages, caffeine, and aspirin, which tend to dehydrate your system.
