PLEASE NOTE: This trip in Peru takes place in high elevations. The location where we are based at is close to 10,000 ft in elevation. For this trip, it is recommended that participants are in good to excellent physical condition. We will be working and hiking in this environment and it will be important to us that all participants are aware of the conditions so they can feel as comfortable as possible. With this, we will all be acclimating to the elevation and conditions together, taking the first couple of days slowly. We will also support acclimation with special foods, teas, and by taking part in various exercises.
