I am looking at a tour that flies to lima on day 1 and then flies to cusco on the morning on day 3.
On day 6 there is an excursion to sacred valley and machu on day 7 returning to cusco after.
Do I need to be concerned about altitude sickness since we fly from lima to cusco. Would diamox be recommended in this situation?
I do have mild asthma but don't use inhalers much these days at all.
I am 49 but somewhat over weight but intend to get fit before I go.
My wife us 48 and in general good health too but takes medicine for underactive thyroid.
I read many comments with different answers and am very confused.
Thanks in advance.Edited: 7:06 pm, November 11, 2012
