I am flying to Cusco from Lima and would like to avoid altitude sickness. I have heard one can get sick simply because Cusco is already very high.
I booked plane tickets to give my body 4 full days to adjust to the altitude before going on the salkantay trek.
Should I consider going down to Pisac for the first day, sleep there and then go back up to Cusco for the remaining 3 days?
I haven't book my hotel yet so I have still the option.
Thanks a lot in advance for your advice!
