On a previous post we gave you some tips to be taken in consideration before visiting a place in altitude, now we are bringing you some additional recommendations that will help you while visiting some of Peru’s destinations in altitude.

Is is well known that nobody likes to travel and having the whole trip ruined by health problems, but is inevitable if you are traveling to altitude to feel some of these ailments, commonly called “soroche”.

The first thing you need to know is that before departing it is a must to have had enough sleep the night before, no alcohol drinking, no heavy eating, since all these could cause you an indigestion.

During your first day in altitude we recommend that you try to make as little effort as possible, drink at least 1 liter (approximately 1 quart) of water, eat little and stay warm.

All of these tips will help you have a more pleasant trip and enjoy all the landscapes that Peru can offer you.
