*This is a challenging day of hiking. Spend some time in Cusco to acclimate (we recommend 3 days in Cusco or similar elevation). The hike takes place over 4500m (15,000ft) and is about 15 kilometers in length (9.3 miles) in total length, with an elevation gain of 685m (2250ft). The main reason this trek is difficult is because of the elevation. The terrain is a gradual climb and you are walking in a wide valley for the majority of the trek.
