Re; diamox

by warkworth11

Arriving in Cusco and on to Ollantayambo then to Machu Picchu the following day. Would you recommend the diamox? One of the travellers experiences altitude sickness when skiing in the Rockies and generally combats that with a seasickness patch. JP

Re: Re; diamox

by GrumpyDiver

I had a negative experience with Diamox during a trip to Tibet. The side effects, tingling hands and feet, were worse than the altitude sickness it was trying to combat, so we did not even consider that option when we went to Cusco and beyond. The only thing we used there was the local Mate de Coco (a tisane made from Coco leaves. I'm not sure if it made any difference, but we had no altitude related issue other than a mild shortness of breath.

All that being said is that Cusco (3300m / 11000 ft) will be the highest point you are at if you are heading into Machu Picchu (2450 m / 7700 ft). Unless you are trekking, where you would hit higher altitudes at some of the mountain passes. It's called the Sacred Valley for a reason - you will be heading downhill as you head into Ollantaytambo and to Machu Picchu itself.

Travel Tips for Cusco

Life as a dog...

by bicycle_girl

There is a lot of street dogs in Cuzco. Most of them are really skinny because no one feed them. They cross the streets in high traffic and fight with other dogs. I felt that often those dogs were scared of humans, likely because they were treated poorly. If you have food on you, or leftovers from dinner, you will make a dog happy...


by Amareyui

Since the ancient empire is called "Inca", their people should be called Incas too, right?
That's a big misconception, since the only person qualified to be called an "Inca" was the emperor, the highest figure in the society. The lineage of the ascendancy led to only eleven "Incas" before the power structure began to disintegrate in the 16th century.
By the way, the correct term for the citizens of the Inca Empire is the "Quechua People".


by K-nalla

Se puede hace turismo vivencial en Racchi. Se vive y se trabaja con la comunidad de campesinos. Nada lujoso ni majestual, simplemente se vive de la misma manera q los campesinos. Profesores y profesionales pueden ayudar en las escuelas, mujeres ayudan con los quehaceres y los hombres al campo a arar. Tremenda experiencia. Si tienen ninhos los pueden traer tambien, ellos iran a la escuela con los ninhos de la zona. Para hacer los contactos requeridos tiene q acercarse a la misma poblacion y hablar con el presidente (asi le dicen al encargado del pueblo) o con el senhor Wilfredo Aymar Blanco (el me ayudo a mi) y ahi pueden hacer los arreglos para su estadia. Definitivamente diferente.
Las manhanas son espectaculares pues se ve salir el sol detras del Apu Salkantay y atardece detras de las cadenas montanhosas creando lindos colores. La comida q uno cultiva definitivamente sabe mejor.

Saqsayhuaman (a.k.a. Sexy Women)

by darthmilmo

Saqsayhuaman (commonly referred to as 'Sexy Women' by many tourists) is a beautiful Incaic temple that lies on a hill overlooking Cusco. The site has one of the best Incaic ruins I have seen. The temple was built with massive stones fit into perfection at different angles. Some of the stones weigh over 100 tons. Before heading downhill towards Cusco, I stopped on top of the hill to see the town. I got an excellent view of the Plaza de Armas.

(about 20 minutes from Cusco by bus/taxi)

The flight into Cuzco is spectacular!

by bicycle_girl

The plane from Lima to Cuzco is spectacular! Make sure you have a window seat. I was on the left side of the plane, so if you can, request it!

At first you see the cordilliera Blanca, the Andes and soon enough if you are lucky, the pilot will find the valley Cuzco is in and also find the air strip.Then you will pass a ledge that you will see quite clearly underneath you... I hope that you don't see people on it since you'd be too close. Then the pilot will perform a 180 degree and you will see the valley real well. If you are the faint at heart type, please sit in the alley...

The descent into Cuzco is just spectacular, just have your cameras ready! You have now just completed the first city tour, all for the same price than the airfare!
