Peru – Machu Picchu and Altitude Sickness

Llama and Machu Picchu ruins, Peru

Machu Picchu is located in mountains at 2430 m (7970 ft) above sea level, so it’s much lower than Cusco (3400 m above sea level). Because of that, altitude sickness shouldn’t be a problem in Machu Picchu, but can be in Cusco!
