Frequently Asked Questions about the 6-day Machu Picchu tour

What is the best day to go to Machu Picchu?

In our opinion, the best time to visit Machu Picchu is late April/early May and late September/early October. During these dates, the number of tourists is lower in the citadel and the trails, and the weather conditions are mostly rain-free.

How to prepare physically for Machu Picchu?

Practice and physical exercise are important. The most important muscles that you will use on the trail are those of the legs, so it would be good to walk, run, and among other leg exercises. Try to walk uphill or climb stairs, because the Inca Trail is steep.

What is the most beautiful thing about Machu Picchu?

The Huayna Picchu mountain is undoubtedly the most desired and popular attraction of Machu Picchu, it is the singular mountain that is seen in all the classic photos of Machu Picchu, climbing it is an incredible adventure.

What is produced in the Sacred Valley?

This important achievement positions the Sacred Valley as the main producer of giant corn at the national level, with an extension of 2,205 hectares belonging to a total of 787 families dedicated to this activity.

What is the altitude of the Sacred Valley?

What is the altitude of the Sacred Valley? The Sacred Valley of the Incas is located 35 km from Cusco and about 600 meters below the level of the Imperial City. These are the exact altitudes of the towns that make up the valley: Pisac: 2,980 meters/9776 feet above sea level.

What does Sacred Valley mean?

The name Sacred Valley is applied to the section of the Urubamba River valley that includes the towns of Pisac, Calca, Yucay, Urubamba and Ollantaytambo. Here, the river flows between cultivated canchones and slopes with steep andenerías (the cultivation terraces of the area).

Is it worth going to Humantay Lake?

Humantay Lake is easily one of the best day trips you can take from Cusco Peru. It is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been. If you are planning a trip to Peru, don’t miss this hidden gem!

Is it possible to swim in Humantay Lake?

However, it is not legally allowed, and besides, the water is very cold. After all, the water is fed directly from the glaciers, so it is freezing cold. The bottom line is that no, it is not allowed, and you should not swim in Lake Humantay Peru at all.

How difficult is the excursion to the Humantay Lagoon?

Tour to the Humantay Lagoon Humantay Lagoon
Difficulty: Moderately difficult hike. Trail: Gravel and sand trail at first, flat for about 30 minutes. Then the climb has rocks all the way up. The last part of the trail is winding, rocky and slippery.

How long is the hike to Rainbow Mountain?

Hiking time: 1 hour and 20 minutes one way. Advantages: It has a chance to visit the Red Valley because it is nearby.

Although it is still possible to visit the mountain, there is a probability of encountering snow. The months that comprise this season are between December to April.

How difficult is it to climb the Rainbow Mountain?
