Praktisk info

Guidede turer for Quarry Trail går fra Ollantaytambo. De fleste turene vil kjøre inn på landsbygda til den lille byen Rafq'a, hvor hester er lastet med leirutstyr og forsyninger og stien fører inn i fjellet. Juni-september er de tørreste månedene (og også den kaldeste og mest populære), og med tanke på hvor mye høyde du får, er det lurt å akklimatisere seg i Cuzco i et par dager før du går på fottur.
