Things to note:

If you travel in high altitude environments to which you are not accustomed you may experience symptoms of altitude sickness, Symptoms usually include nausea, headache and a loss of appetite, but can be more serious. If this occurs, you must inform your guide(s) immediately. More serious forms of altitude sickness include High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE) can be fatal if not treated quickly and effectively. Effective treatment will require rapid descent to a lower altitude, which may be difficult due to a variety of factors. 

Average daytime temperatures in and around Cusco generally range from 55 - 80 degrees F with Andean evenings cooling down to anywhere between the 20s and 50s. The itinerary takes place in the mountains where the weather can change very quickly. During the months of May-October, days are typically clear and pleasant, with afternoon clouds occasionally building and leading to small amounts of precipitation. All day rain is unlikely. 

If during the Programs, I am rendered unconscious or incompetent or otherwise cannot effectively make decisions regarding my medical care, I authorize in advance the provision of any emergency medical treatment deemed necessary or advisable for me. I also authorize DIHEDRAL YOGA, LLC and/or PERU ANDES DISCOVERY, and its employees and contractors to make health care decisions for me and to give or withhold informed consent to health care on my behalf at any time during the Programs  when my family members or emergency contact are absent or unable to make such decisions. I agree that I will pay for all medical treatment that I receive, including any evacuation whether directly or through reimbursement to DIHEDRAL YOGA, LLC and/or PERU ANDES DISCOVERY. 

I verify that all of the preceding information is correct, I agree that it can be shared with guides and other service providers during the Programs, and I agree to the preceding consent and authorization of medical treatment.
