Central Peruvian Andes Safety

Some dos and don’ts for staying safe in the Central Andes are:

DO:

  • Allow yourself adequate time to acclimatize before attempting any high altitude climbs or treks.
  • Get in proper physical shape before arriving if you intend to do difficult climbs or treks.

  • Be familiar with safe alpine practices, as many excursions take you days away from medical care.
  • Be alert to the threat of avalanches and mudslides before setting out to the mountains or taking trips in the area. Check locally to find out which areas should be avoided.
  • Take the same precautions with baggage, cameras and passports as you would in the rest of Peru.

DON'T:

  • Push yourself too far beyond your comfort zone—the Peruvian Andes can be unforgiving and mistakes at high altitude are magnified.
  • Think yourself more knowledgeable or a better judge than your guide—they are there for your safety and their decisions are final.
