Machu Picchu is up in the cloud forest. this means it is relatively high in altitude however if you’ve already been acclimatized while in Cusco then you should be fine. Machu Picchu is visited my many tourists every year and the normal procedure is to stay in Cusco city for the first day or so before heading out.
While going to Machu Picchu remember that the weather is always changing in this area. It can be quite sunny and warm as well as cold and damp. Something else you might want to consider while in Machu Picchu is that mosquitoes can be a problem depending on the season and not just a small one. Bring plenty of insect repellent and sun block in case it gets too sunny and warm. it is the citadel for a culture that worshipped the sun after all. Bottled water is also something you won’t want to forget to carry when climbing the ruins under the hot sun. there are many stores in Aguas Calientes for you to pick up all you need; bottled water. insect repellent and sun block as well as whatever else you think you might need.
