Recommendation to do the Short Inca Trail:

You must acclimatize before arriving to Cusco, one or two days before starting the 2 Day Inca Trail. For a good acclimatization it is necessary to rest as much as possible, to eat little, to drink abundant liquid; specially the coca  tea that possesses known healing and digestive properties. An adequate acclimatization avoids that it affects the «soroche» or altitude Sicknes, that could cause numerous annoyances to the health. And it won’t allow you to enjoy this exciting Inca Trail in 2 Days.
