“Do I have to worry about the altitude?”

What is Altitude Sickness?

Before you can prevent altitude sickness you must know what it is. Altitude Sickness, known as Soroche in Peru, can occur for many people at heights starting at 8,000 feet (2,500 meters) above sea level. Altitude sickness is caused by insufficient oxygen in the blood and can cause dizziness, nausea and shortness of breath. Many people have said altitude sickness feels like having a hangover. Everyone is susceptible to experience altitude sickness. It doesn’t matter your age, gender or weight. It can affect even the fittest, healthiest traveler. You must know your own limitations and always consult your physician to get their medical advice before you go as they know your medical history and can give you the best information related to you and your needs.

Tips to avoid altitude sickness:

Drink lots of water – STAY HYDRATED! You should be drinking at least 6 -16 ounces of bottled water a day.

Avoid alcoholic beverages

Participate in mild activities your first few days in Cusco, Peru. Walk slowly and take it easy. Don’t over do it and listen to your body!

Eat carbs! (Pasta, bread and potatoes) – but be sure to not overeat!

Eat coca – coca tea, coca candy, coca brownies or the raw coca leaves themselves. Coca can be found everywhere in Cusco and it can help alleviate the symptoms of altitude sickness.

Before you go – consult your physician. Talk to him/her about your trip to Cusco. Your physician may advise and prescribe you an “altitude sickness tablet” and will most likely advice you to take these at least one day prior to your arrival.

If you find yourself affected by Sorroche, you can take Diamox/Acetazolamide. This medication is available at pharmacies in Cusco. There are also health clinics in Cusco, some of which have English-speaking personnel. Bring your travel insurance card when you go.
