Travel advice and tips obtained from our guests and our own experiences.
Most people fly as quickly as possible to Machu Picchu, thereafter they want to see the other sights of Peru.
In connection with the risk of altitude sickness, it is wise to see Matchu Picchu at latter stage of your journey so that you can travel across land allow your boby to get used to the height change slowly. As a guide Arequipa is roughly half height of Matchu picchu.
Our overall itinerary advice is as follows.
