I need some help with my itinerary! One important thing is that I have problems with altitude.
[On my last trip to Chile I've stayed for some days in San Pedro de Atacama - 2400m - to adapt but when I started to go higher I had a big problem. I couldn't control my breathing and some muscles were completely contracted. This started 15 minutes after stopping in Socaire - 3200m - when I was in a bus at aprox. 3700m. The following day I went higher - 4500m with no problems... Now I am very aware of altitude sickness (soroche) and I know well what do I have to do minimize its effects. But... Who knows what can happen...]
So... I'm trying to choose the best route.
I'll be arriving in Cusco on MAY 03 (11:20 AM) and I'll leave the town on MAY 07 (09:05 AM).
Any suggestions? The only thing I know for sure is that I'm going to visit Machu Picchu. I also know that Aguas Calientes is located at 2050m above sea level and Cusco is located at 3400m. So it may be better not to stay in Cusco in the first day. Right?
I won't try the Inca trail!
With the time I have which tours should I do?
