IMPORTANT INFO BEFORE YOU GO

Deposits

A non-refundable deposit (varies depending on tour) is payable from the Client to Huaynas Expeditions when reserving any Product. If the reservation is made 7 days or fewer before departure, full payment is required at the time of booking. Depending on the original booking method, the client should send the non-refundable deposit to Huaynas Expeditions or the authorized Agent through whom they made their reservation.

Tour Briefing

A pre-tour briefing is given to you, ideally two days before the start of the trek. This is comprehensive information on the tour schedule, required gear, altitude, weather, etc. Questions and concerns will be clarified so that you fully comprehend the tour schedule.

Acclimatization

It is strongly suggested to be progressively acclimatized; thus, you should arrive in Cusco 2 days previous to trek departure. Altitude sickness causes you a headache, stomache, hands tingling, etc. There is certain medicine you may take to avoid altitude sickness, for instance acetazalomide; moreover, it is helpful to have coca tea; and hot liquids to not become dehydrated. You must descend as the ultimate emergency if you develop serious altitude sickness.

Pick Up of Guests

If your hotel is located in the Historical Center of Cusco, Huaynas Expeditions will pick you up there. Although your guide will schedule the pickup time during the briefing, please be aware that the pickup time could change by up to 20 minutes due to traffic.

Cusco is an ancient city, and there are lots of winding cobblestone streets there. It may be challenging to move luggage to some hotels and Airbnbs because they are situated on car-free streets or long, including inclines. Booking lodging with adequate access is something we strongly advise.

Duffel Bag or Canvas Case

You’ll be given a canvas case or duffel bag during your briefing. Our horses will transport them, and the horsemen will hand them to you as you arrive at each camp. They are 60 x 24 x 22 centimetres (23.6 x 9.45 x 8.66 in).

Each duffel bag can only contain a maximum of 7 kilogrammes (15.4 lb), which includes the weight of your clothing, sleeping bag, and other personal belongings.

Strikes and Demonstrations

Strikes and demonstrations are frequent in Peru, which may stop some of our tours. Roads can be stopped, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will attempt to keep your vacation as initially planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these conditions, trips may potentially be cancelled. In case of changes or cancellations, our operations department will manage everything with you. Your safety is our priority, and our decisions will be taken to protect it.

Group Tours

Because group trips are made up of various persons, physical states and ages may differ. You acknowledge that some persons may be faster or slower than you if you choose to participate in a group trip. As a result, everyone on the road may proceed at their own speed.

It is conceivable that a group may want to change the itinerary; however, after discussing with all participants, the guide will determine if such changes are allowed.

Travel Insurance

We highly advise you to buy comprehensive travel insurance before departing. A comprehensive travel insurance coverage that covers everything from high-altitude treks to unforeseen trip adjustments is a must-have travel gear. Please remember that your standard medical insurance plan will not cover some possibilities in your own country. We suggest searching for a plan that covers the following coverage:

  • Adventure trips and any specific activity you will be undertaking on your journey (such as a high-altitude trek);
  • Recovery of your non-refundable booking deposit in the event of trip cancellation due to illness or accidental injury;
  • National or international emergency evacuation;
  • Patriation of remains in the event of death;
  • Other medical expenses related to injury, illness or death.

While we try to be understanding when situations arise, the fact is that Trip Changes and Trip Cancellation incur penalties.

Passport

To book the below things in your name, we require a photo of your passport’s bio page (Peruvian Government Requirement). Please keep in mind that each traveler must be aware of the re-entry laws for their place of residence/citizenship. Some nations require a passport valid for 6 months beyond the travel date. Please confirm that your passport is current and meets your country’s and residency standards. We can purchase your flights with an expired passport, but we will require a copy of the current passport as soon as you receive it in order to update your tickets.

Visa’s

Most countries are permitted to obtain a visa at the point of arrival. Only a few nations require visas to be obtained in advance. Please remember that each tourist is responsible for determining whether or not a visa is required before admission. Please remember that tourist visas are usually valid for 90 days or less and require proof of return travel.

Lost Objects

Please be aware of where you leave your belongings, and remember to take everything with you once you leave our transportation, tents, or restaurants. You are solely responsible for your items throughout the trip.

Itinerary

Day 1: Cusco - Perolniyoc Waterfall - Ñaupa Iglesia - Ollantaytambo - Aguas Calientes.

The trip begins with picking you up from your hotel in Cusco at 7:00 am. Then we will go to the town of “Socma,” crossing the sacred valley of the Incas, next to its wonderful sacred river “Vilcanota.” In Socma, the trek to the Perolniyoc waterfall or cataract begins; the journey lasts approximately one hour until reaching the foot of this beautiful waterfall with a drop of more than one hundred meters, an incredible natural wonder Inca ceremonial source. On tour, you will see people practicing agriculture in these beautiful places and a great variety of flora and fauna. On the way, we will have time to take pictures.

In the upper part of the Perolniyoc waterfall, a thirty-minute walk (ascent), is the attractive Inca archaeological center of “Raqaypata.” It is an archaeological complex from the Inca period (1,100 AD – 1,352 AD), located 3,646 meters above sea level. Where the cataract originates, this place was a granary or warehouse (Tanpu) and administrative area during the Inca period; It also had a sophisticated agricultural hydraulic system, which is still in operation today.

After Raqaypata, we will begin with the return walk to the town of Socma, the place where we will enjoy our box lunch included with drinks.

Then we will take our vehicle for 30 minutes; to visit the next archaeological center. “Naupa Inglesia” will be the next archaeological center to visit; it is a mysterious and mystical place, a ceremonial temple of worship to the moon; In this place you will feel a great spiritual energy, with a lot of peace and tranquility, that is why it is believed that Ñaupa Iglesia is a very special huaca, considered as an Inca portal to other dimensions. Getting to Naupa Inglesia will take us thirty minutes walking uphill.

Next, we will go to Ollantaytambo, where we will have time to rest and explore the historic city. After our time in Ollantaytambo, we will take the train (1:40 hrs.) to Aguas Calientes, where we will spend the night in lodging and be able to visit the hot springs of the place.
