Altitude Sickness (Soroche) and Stomach Pain
For those trekkers that come to Cusco directly from places at sea level; we recommend to arrive 2-3 days before your trek. Two of the most common health issues among tourists in Cusco are: The Altitude Sickness (Soroche) and stomach pain provoked by slow digestion.
Altitude Sickness; some of the symptoms are: headache and nausea. There are some over the counter medications (pills) that help to minimize the symptoms of this problem, such as Glucosa Coramina, Aspirina, Diamox, Soroichi Pill, and Acetazolamida among others. If the symptoms persist, the use of oxygen is the next step. Under these circumstances we have the equipment and staff ready to assist our trekkers.
Stomach Pain; It is recommended to drink between 3-4 liters of water per day. Your body will need this to stay hydrated. It is especially recommended to drink hot drinks like coca leaf tea. Also recommended are, soups, vegetables, and carbohydrates (not fried or heavy). Candy, chocolates, cookies, and fruits are also a good option. In general, all food that is easy to digest. Do not drink alcohol or smoke.
Try to sleep at least 8 hours and do not exercise too much. Keep your body in good temperature wearing warm clothes to protect yourself from the cold. While adjusting to the altitude there is a general rule to follow: eat what is necessary and drink plenty of liquids.
Health restrictions and medication
It is very important that passengers tell their sales consultant if they have any medical restrictions before making the trip: allergies, special diet, medications you are taking, health problems, or anything that has to be taken into account in order to make your journey much more pleasant and to have no concerns.
