FAQS?

Is the trek difficult? Do I need to be in good physical condition?

Certainly, All our treks (Inca Trail, Salkantay trek, Ausangate, Lares trekking, Choquequirao Trek, etc.) are moderately difficult, lengthy and traverse rough mountain terrain. We kindly recommend that if you plan to conquer any of these routes to be in relatively good physical condition, plus acclimatization.

To clarify, This means arriving in Cusco at least 02 days before your trek departure to adjust to the altitude.

During the last two months leading up to your trek, we suggest a regular and moderate exercise routine to improve endurance and stamina. We wish for you to have the best experience possible!

Are vegetarian, vegan, and other special diet needs available?

Of course! Without any additional costs! When you make your reservation, please inform us of any dietary needs or requirements, including allergies!

Likewise, Vegetarian foods will be absent of all meats, chicken, or fish. We will assume that eggs and cheese or other lactose products are OK.

Certainly, Most of our main meals are buffet-style, leaving you the option to avoid anything undesirable to you.

Therefore, If there are any food items or veggies that you cannot stomach, perhaps onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, etc, upon your request, we will ask our chef to leave them out or separate this item.

What if I am lactose intolerant?

We can also attend lactose-intolerant or gluten-intolerant diets. We cannot accept individuals with serious allergic or life-threatening reactions.

I have a food allergy. May I still participate?

Likewise, We kindly ask that you declare the severity of your reaction and any medication that you take in case of an emergency.

WE CANNOT ACCEPT CLIENTS WITH LIFE-THREATENING ALLERGIES

When must I arrive in Cusco or arrive at your office?

We require that all clients arrive in Cusco at least 48 hours before the start of your trek, although 03 nights before is ideal. Therefore, You must pay your remaining balance two days before your departure for your trek. So, this will ensure that all individuals are acclimatized and adjusted to the high altitude conditions to begin your trek comfortably.

Certainly, any baggage that is not necessary for your trek may be stored in your hotel in Cusco (most hotels offer this service free of charge). However, In the case that your hotel may not provide this service, we will store your baggage safely in our office free of charge. Choquequirao Trekking

What is the weather like during the Choquequirao Trekking?

I wish to have a train company or train option different to that which Inkayni Peru Tours offers, is this possible?
