Is altitude sickness a big problem?

Jump to last reply

We will be visiting Lima, Machu Picchu and Lake Titicaca in August. Has anyone had any experience with altitude sickness at these heights. We have been between 9 and 14 thousand feet(briefly) in Colorado and had no problems so I am optimistic about Peru.
