Altitude sickness Machu Picchu
7. Re: height illness
You have many information currently. Bear in mind, Machu Picchu is located at less altitute compared to the town of Cuzco. That can help loads. Apart from that, many factors including if you're overweight, or you exercise should affect you also. I have been several times to Cuzco, last time with my American spouse and son. Took all safety measures, saw the Dr., got the pills, rested for 3 times (remained at Pisac, also less height), came ultimately back to Cuzco City and both my boy and spouse with difficulty breathing in the middle of the night time (I happened to be frightened but usually fine, must be my inca's bloodstream). Staff exceptionally nice, came to our area with air, in 10 minutes problem solved. Coca Leaves tea, failed to assist, and didn't hurt. We saw people a great deal avove the age of united states, in better form (fit), without any issue, so bear that at heart, and create your power beginning now with a regime of walking or jogging. And when you accept your Dr., you ought to take pills, do not do exactly what my hubby performed, he kept all of them inside the pocket all the tiime until he was in bad form, then it was too late to just take them. Various other sympton he created had been stress in the mind, a throbbing hassle. At the airline countertop they supplied united states 3 passes to virtually any place in Peru, if we changed our ticket for a later departure, same time...my hubby said NO! Let's return to Lima (forget about height!). Now he regrets it. You will end up fine, making use of good judgement, playing the body, preventing and sleep when you need it, even although you need end the walking tour and simply take a cab returning to the hotel. Go on it simple and luxuriate in your travel!
