Medium to high*: The elevation of different points on this tour can incur a shortness of breath, which you should acclimatise to within the first couple of days. The pace of the tour is not difficult, but you must consider the altitude. There is a walk at Tequile Island that may be difficult for some, and it is therefore optional.
Cusco altitude: 3,400 meters
Machu Picchu altitude: 2,430 meters

Sun screen, hat, comfortable walking shoes and warmer clothing for evenings.
Warm during day time, cooler in the evenings. Cooler in Cusco and Puno (Lake Titicaca) due to the altitude.
