7.1 The authors of the Guide have made every attempt to ensure the accuracy of the material which it contains, and to give advice which minimises the unavoidable risks of travel to a potentially hazardous environment. There may however be omissions and errors in the Guide.

Trekking, and travel to poor parts of the world cannot, however, cannot be undertaken without there being some intrinsic risk. Peru is a middle income developing country. Medical care is not always immediately available or is not likely to meet international best practice. Transport is erratic and innately hazardous. The Andes are intrinsically dangerous: for example, some trips set out on foot at an altitude which is higher than the tallest mountain in Europe.

In undertaking travel in this environment, you therefore accept a risk. The Guide has been written to help you minimise these risks, but in using it you accept that these risks are yours, and not transferable to the authors of the guide nor to International Trek!Guides Limited, as 4.4 above.
