Peru Adventure: Trek – Considered within the 3 giants of Cusco; the snowy Veronica is one of the most important mountains of the Cusco region. After all, though its summit does not reach 6,000m; this expedition is a committed ascent. Its closeness to the jungle does not ensure good weather; but it does guarantee an immense landscape.

Preparing for this Peru Adventure trek you’ll be descending from Cusco to the Sacred Valley. Following then; the trek through the Lares valley will help you to acclimate. After all this is good preparation to cross the Urubamba Mountain Range.

This is a technical adventure and is suitable for those with some climbing experience; to get the most out of the trip expedition. Accommodation in the Sacred Valley & Cusco along with other parts of the trip are customisable.

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.
