There were a few things that worried me about this tour:
1. Everyone kept warning us about the altitude. You leave the town at 4am and head straight up to 4200m to see the geysers at sunrise. Apparently, this rapid ascent means that many tourists spend their morning at the geysers feeling dizzy and sitting in the bus.
2. Although it is the middle of summer, the temperature will be between 0 and -10 degrees at the geysers. Not very pleasant for walking around if you are wearing your usual desert attire of shorts and a t-shirt.
So, on the advice of our tour company, we stocked up on warm clothes and left the tour to the last day (so we had the maximum amount of time to acclimatise). Also on their advice, we avoided red meat for 24 hours before the tour but I am still not sure why…
