Prevent the Altitude Sicknes!!
Altitude sickness also known as mountain sickness or Soroche is a bad physical being due to lack of adaptation of the organism to high altitudes and the increase of atmospheric pressure in large altitudes.That is the reason why it is advisable to take a coca leaves tea before leaving t our adventure or take a pill that helps fight this evil. If you feel bad during the trek, please do not hesitate to inform our guide, he is trained to help you.
Early at morning, approximately 3 - 4 a.m we will pick you up from your Hotel to start the adventure!! We will start going to the town of Checacupe,to then take the road to Pitumarca. After a repairing breakfast we will continue on our way to Pampachiri located at 3800 m.a.s.l, where we will start the trek from approximately 3 to 4 hours. The road is full of beautiful landscapes and variety of Andean camelids that delight the view forgetting a little the slope of the route. Once in the mountain Vinicunca or also called Rainbow Mountain, we will have a brief conversation with the guide who will explain the reason for the coloration and also have a privileged view of the Snow Mountain Ausangate. After the respective photos we proceed to the descent, then have lunch and go back to the city of Cusco.
The Mountain of the 7 Colors offers one of the most incredible natural landscapes in the world. These are some of the things to do in this magical place:
It is important to know that, regardless of how you approach the trek, it reaches up to 5100 meters at the Vinicunca viewpoint. The path that is still more frequent (that of the Pitumarca route) is 8 kilometers and, as we say, it can take about three hours. Other altitudes (meters above sea level) that could be of interest to you:
With these altitudes, regardless of the physical shape of each one and the path you choose, it is VERY important to have a possible altitude sickness controlled, so we encourage you to take a look of a guide to avoid the altitude sickness. And, of course, to take with you a good travel insurance.
