Hey fellow travelers,
I've read a lot of helpful posts on here about altitude sickness, the level of elevation of certain cities etc. I am faced with a tough choice to make however and I could use the advice of the experienced.
I get to Cusco on a Saturday at around 11am and I depart for the Inca Trail on Monday. I will have invested in Diamox but want to know if it is too much to take a city tour the same day we arrive (Saturday) and do the Sacred Valley the next day (Sunday) before heading to the Trail the following day (Monday). We are doing all tours with Llama Path, but I am cautious reading the "rest" "Take it easy" posts. We are only in Peru for 7 days and I really want to maximize our time there, but I don't want to go overboard either. Any advice is welcome. Thnx!
