Medical & Evacuation Insurance
All participants on this trip are required to have emergency medical ($50,000) and emergency evacuation ($500,000) insurance valid in their destination country. Short-term travel insurance to cover this minimum requirement (as well as more comprehensive coverage) is available for purchase through REI Adventures.
Average daytime temperatures in and around Cusco generally range from 55° - 75° F with evenings cooling down into the 40s and 50s. Much of this itinerary takes place in the mountains where weather can change very quickly and evening temperatures regularly drop into the 30s and 40s. As our treks are planned during the "dry season", days are typically clear and pleasant, with afternoon clouds occasionally building and leading to small amounts of precipitation. While April and November departures may experience slightly higher amounts of rainfall, all-day rain is unusual. We will be hiking over a 15,213' mountain pass so guests should be prepared for unpredictable mountain weather.
This trip is subject to the booking information set forth in the current REI Adventures Reservation Information. Please read this information carefully and call us if you have any questions.
