I might go to Macchu picchu this spring (finally). But I have a few questions about avoiding altitude sickness.
Which is best?
1. Go straight from Cusco airport to Ollantaytambo and sleep there before continuing to MP next day?
2. Stay 1-2 nights in Cusco to get used to the height?
How fast will ALS strike you?
I mean if you feel sick direct you get off the plane it might be better to sleep in cusco ..Edited: 1:56 pm, April 02, 2012
