What is the altitude like there, and how should I prepare?
The retreat venue has plenty of oxygen tanks on site if anyone should find themselves short of breath . This isn’t a typical response to the altitude but if you have a history of having trouble with high altitudes, there are two medical clinics in The Sacred Valley (see below) if there are any serious issues. They do accept some health insurance and it is recommend that clients check to see if they accept your current provider. If not, it is recommended that you purchase travel insurance for the trip. Consult with your physician prior to departure if you have any other concerns.
