More details

From March/April to November (or dry season) although it can be travelled all year round. Please note that if the weather is very bad, the trail could be dangerous and we may have to cancel the trip and perhaps replace it with another day’s walk or a day’s hike, depending on the circumstances.

This hike is classified as a moderate to challenging hike (intermediate to advanced) considering the high altitude, the amount of gain in a short period of time and the duration of the hike. It is recommended that you acclimatize in Cusco at least 2-3 days before this one-day hike.
