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

Cusco – Cusipata – Vinicunca Rainbow Mountain – Cusco

Pick up from your hotel in Cusco early, and we will undertake a trip to the south of Cusco through the beautiful landscapes of the valley and agricultural communities. The trip will take approximately 2 hours to reach the community of Pitumarka. Once in the community, we will have a delicious breakfast prepared by our chef from our family Huaynas Expeditions.

After breakfast, we will begin our trek, following a beautiful path between mountains; you will enjoy incredible views of the Andes, glacial peaks, red mountains, accompanied by Ausangate, the fifth highest peak in Peru. Also, you will appreciate llamas and alpacas that graze throughout the valley. Occasionally we will observe local people moving for their daily activities.

The ascent of the route will take us a total of 2 hours approximately, taking us to our final destination, the highest point of our trek, Vinincunca or Rainbow Mountain; here we will stop to admire and appreciate the outstanding views that we will find in all directions and also the rare geological formations with exotic colors. In the distance and below us, we will see infinite valleys and glaciers until we lose sight of them.

We will stop exploring for about 30 minutes – the perfect amount of time to rest and immerse ourselves in this wild environment before starting our descent, which will take about 2 hours. Upon returning to Pitumarka, our cook will be waiting for us with a delicious hot lunch. Our chef will surprise us with a delicious buffet lunch. Then after lunch, we will have enough time to observe the lifestyle and customs that are still practiced since Inca times.
