Note about Bug Repellent: the DEET concentratoin tells you how long the DEET lasts. For example, 100% DEET will last about 10 hours; 10% DEET about 90 minutes, 25% DEET 2.5 hours, etc. Also, the majority of the DEET product, when sprayed onto the skin, either evaporates or is absorbed into the body,which is why such high concentrations are required

Altitude Sickness

When arriving in Cusco from the coast you'll immediately notice the thin clear mountain air, a result of the City's high altitude. The first day in particular should be spent quietly relaxing and taking things easy as you gently acclimatize. Plan to spend at least 2 days in and around Cusco before starting any serious activity (trekking such as the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu)

Hike with Kinds

 It will be OK to hike for an older 7years kid But we definitely recommend a private service for your group,
we found the trek to be very difficult, especially when you add in the altitude problems. Additionally, many of those stone steps are very high, some at least twice as high as normal steps, or more. At 5'2", I had a lot of difficulty with many of them, both up & down.
The 2-day trek might be suitable for them, though. Or possibly the Lares Trek, which goes through some small villages & settlements & is not as tough as the IT. And there are lots of other fun active things for kids to do in the Cusco-Sacred Valley area, including mountain biking and horseback riding.

 

Our designed tours will take you to explore the the main attractions of Cusco city, the Sacred Valley of the inkas and Machupicchu You don' t need to be a super fit for the tours. Note: Make your own itinerary at Tailor-made tours option below
