1. Pre-trip fitness tips:

In addition to daily yoga practices and cultural activities, this experience is comprised of moderate to challenging hikes at high altitudes and through varied terrain.

Recommendations:

/Begin a cardio-intensive fitness regimen that includes vigorous walking and/or hiking three months before your trip.
/Wear broken-in hiking shoes or boots. We also recommend having adequate ankle support as the terrain is varied.
/Use hiking poles or walking sticks during the hikes for greater agility and ankle support.

2. Adjusting to high altitude:

Altitude sickness is most common at elevations above 6,500’/1,900m and results from the body adjusting to a decreased amount of oxygen. Symptoms can include lightheadedness, nausea, headaches, and dehydration.

Recommendations:

/If possible, arrive in Cusco at least one – two days before your MLP departure.
/Drink a minimum of 64oz./2L of water each day.
/Avoid eating heavy meals, especially during the first couple of days.
/Avoid vigorous exercise during the first couple of pre-trip days.

3. Yoga Mats:

Yoga mats and other equipment will be available for use during the daily practices; however, feel free to bring your own if you prefer.
