12th October - Inca Trail in Comfort + Lake Titicaca

Hi fellow travellers!
I and 2 friends are finally doing this on our bucket lists! Anyone else out there doing this trip?

Excited but also a little nervous about suffering from AMS - any tips and reassurance greatly appreciated!

Also I note that at night it can drop to freezing temperatures; worried about what to pack! - tips?

Looking forward to meeting any fellow adventurers!

H Jane,

There are three of us who are going on this trip too. We are based in Reading and one other based in Manchester.

AMS is just one of those things that I don't think you can plan for...

For the night I am tempted to take my thermals i use for skiing, they are very light and keep me very warm. It means I don't have to have numerous types of trousers and tops.

Have you seen any training regimes to get us fit for this?

Hi all - I'm on this trip too. Travelling on my own on a flight from Heathrow 12 Oct at 22.10. Anyone else on this flight?

Just trying to slim down my luggage! There are so many things I want to bring!  Also worried about AMS - although have been at altitude before and wasnt too bad. Hardest thing I found was not sleeping and losing appetite. 

Looking forward to meeting you all.

2 of us are on this trip - myself and friend Stef. We're from Northampton and will be travelling from Heathrow on the 12th as well Carole. It's all getting really really close now and excitement and a bit of nervousness is starting to creep in.

Currently trying to get my head around what to pack but for someone who always takes way to much this is proving to be a challenge before I've even started the proper challenge! :)

Looking forward to meeting everyone - either at Heathrow or Cusco.

Hi all!

Myself and my dad are travelling form Manchester on Thursday eve and then on the 22:40 from Heathrow.

Getting very excited now too!

I guess my concerns are also the likes of ensuring I am adequately packed without packing the kichen sink!

Also, I want to ensure I have decent and ample insect repellent!

Look forward to meetin you all!

:-)
