I am visiting Cusco/Machu Picchu soon and I am a little worried about my fitness levels.
I am doing an Urban Adventures day tour to Machu Picchu, leaving Cusco really early in the morning. The tour takes the train to Aguas Calientes and then the bus up to the entrance.
I was wondering what kind of fitness level is required to actually view the site. Are there lots of hills/stairs (I'm okay with the occasional set of stairs, not fantastic on steep hills). I will have been in Cusco for a few days, so hopefully I will have acclimatised - but I'm just getting over a decent bout of bronchitis which has reset any fitness I had built up.
Any tips or cautions are most welcome - I really want to experience the site, but I don't want to hold anyone on my tour up or cause an issue by overdoing it (I tend to faint if I go too hard - it's a medical issue).
