Peaks of Cusco.

Peaks of Cusco: Following then; these are considered within the 3 giant peaks of Cusco; the snowy Veronica is one of the most important mountains of the Cusco region. Though its summit does not reach 6,000m; its constancy in the technical aspect of the normal route makes this expedition a committed ascent. However; its proximity to the jungle does not ensure good weather conditions but always displays an impressive landscape.

So then; Huchuy Qosqo or Lares Valley hiking has different routes that will be chosen depending on the kilometers that you want to travel. After all; these options cross by trails of more than 4,000 meters and then descend into the Sacred Valley. Thus this makes them ideal options for acclimatization; the trekking of Lares will consolidate our acclimatization and allows you to cross the Urubamba Mountain Range.

There will be a pre-trek briefing held usually the evening before departure, at your hotel, to go over the details of the trek and any specific requirements not already captured
Prior to setting off we recommend you steer clear of street food and only eat in good restaurants, to avoid any stomach complaints. Peruvian food can be spicy, it can be strong and rich for many European diets. Likewise with tap water, it is largely untreated, so please avoid at all costs on arrival and stick to bottled water only or sterilised water if you have the right equipment.
We’ll ensure that we cater for all of your dietary needs, at the point of booking we’ll collect this information from you. We can secure special menu requests also for your tour party.
We are able to customise our treks to suit you, but usually our treks are guided by a professional bilingual guide, arriero (horseman) and mules to carry all equipment (passenger horses also available on request), and a mountain cook. They become a large part of your trekking expedition and it’s a great experience working together.
This is a really important part of your trip planning process, please find a link below which explains a little more about preparing for altitude.
Attached below are a couple of links which will explain how to prepare for your trip & trek in advance of your arrival. We recommend being prepared in advance to save time & stress whilst you’re in Peru.
