IS THE HUMANTAY LAKE 2 DAYS DIFFICULT, DO I NEED TO BE FIT?

The trail is certainly not easy but you do not need to be an athlete or a trekking expert to complete it.

If you do not exercise regularly, it is advisable to do extra walking, hiking or some kind of aerobic activity in the months leading up to your trip.  The difficulty level of the trek is moderate to challenging.

WHAT ABOUT TOILETS ON THE TREKS?

It has been highlighted by most of our clients, especially by the female trekkers, who want a bit of privacy, clean and sanitary toilet!! Glamping Peru Treks  portable bathroom facilities have an individual tent and a camping toilet with a seat. Check out the picture, which illustrates how we set up our camping toilet on the trek by using this link: picture of toilet tent. Our toilets are always set up a comfortable distance from our campsite.  At night, if you need to use the toilet, it is readily accessible and clean, unlike the dirty facilities supplied by the Peruvian government.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I AM UNABLE TO FINISH 

In the unlikely scenario, that you are unable to finish the trek due to a health issue, Glamping Peru Treks will assist you to the nearest town for help with transportation. We always carry oxygen on the trek for any respiratory problems. In extreme cases, we will arrange a helicopter pick up at your own expense. (We require and recommend Travel insurance).
Generally, those who have to be assisted off the trail are taken to Ollantaytambo and if they recover quickly they, then, continue the journey to Aguas Calientes (cost incurred by trekker) and visit Machu Picchu, according to original plan. There are no refunds in the unlikely situation that you are unable to finish the trek.

TIPPING

If you’re happy with the services provided, a tip – though not compulsory – the staff do appreciate it. While it may not be customary in your country, it’s of great significance for the people who will take care of you during the tour.  It inspires excellent service and is an entrenched feature of the tourism industry across many Glamping Peru Treks destinations. Of course, you are free to tip what you feel is  appropriate, depending on your perception on the quality of service and the length of your tour. Remember, a tip is not compulsory and should only be given when you receive excellent service
