Preparing for your trip to Peru, to Cusco, to make the Inca Trail to Machu Picchu, whatever your main goal, there are some items you need to take with you. However, there is no problem if you forget any item since you can buy most of them in Lima or Cusco and Machupicchu(Pueblo).
Cuzco is 3, 500 meters above sea level, and also other well-known tourist destinations of Peru such as Arequipa, Lima, Lake Titicaca,as well as Machu Picchu. This means you will be much closer to the sun. If you do not normally use sunscreen at home, it will be necessary in this case. After 15 minutes in the sun, you may be turning into a red tomato, if you do not use sunscreen.
A hat and sunglasses:
If you spend many hours under the sun in Peru, it will be necessary to have a hat or a hat. Sunblock can only protect you for a limited period of time, so it's best to wear long-sleeved shirts, pants, a hat and sunglasses to cover your eyes from severe sunrays.Cuzco
A rain jacket or raincoat:
The weather in Cuzco and the Peruvian highlands changes very quickly. During the rainy season, from November to April, when you leave your house or hotel it may be a beautiful day with the sun shining and then in a matter of minutes a large storm cloud will cover the entire city. It is good to always be prepared with a good rain jacket that will keep you warm and will not let you get wet. During the dry season, from May to October, it is normally very sunny throughout the day, but once the sun sets the temperatures drop drastically. Always wear warm clothes with you to keep warm when the sun goes down.
Good hiking shoes:
Most likely, you will do some kind of Trek or Tour during your trip to Peru, such as the Inca Trail, Salkantay Trek, Rainbow Mountain or others. Whether it's hiking to a mountain or simply strolling through the cobbled streets of the city of Cusco, you'll need good footwear to help you avoid slipping, especially during the rainy season, sometimes the streets of the city can be very slippery especially after the rains, if you do not want to skate or fall, good shoes are a must.
Disinfectant Gel for Hands:
Throughout your travels through Peru in many places and times you will need to clean your hands. Either after taking a public bus or a taxi, after using the bathroom or before eating at a restaurant. Many times the public toilets do not have soap. If you like to wash your hands with something other than water, we recommend you always have a bottle of hand sanitizer with you.Cusco
To avoid altitude sickness or at least take it a little better it will be necessary to acclimate in Cusco, not to agitate or to make physical efforts at least during the first days. In addition, the day before arrival to the place is recommended to sleep well, eat light and avoid alcoholic beverages. Meanwhile, once in height it will be necessary to rest during the first day, take ample breaths of air, gradually increase, permanently hydrate, avoid alcohol and tobacco, eat little but, when it is done, choose carbohydrates and sugar-rich foods, choose easily digested foods such as fruits, get warm and avoid taking tranquilizers.
Those who live in high altitude sites often repeat to travelers a rule that, if respected, will help to cope with mountain sickness: "drink before you are thirsty, eat before you are hungry, warm before you get cold and rest before the exhaustion". Take a lot of coca tea and coca leaves to acclimatize If you need more advice on how to prepare for your trip to Peru, we also recommend that you read this blog.
