Easy

These activities are a walk in the park! You will be able to enjoy the scenery, history, and time with loved ones without exhausting yourself. You do not need any special training, gear, or acclimatization for an “Easy” trek or tour. Terrain will be generally flat and comfortable, highly traveled.

Mild

A step up from “Easy,” these tours require a little more physical effort but are still 100% manageable to anyone with or without adventure experience. Again, you do not need special training, gear, or acclimatization for a “Mild” trek or tour. Terrain is generally flat but with possible gentle up- and downhills.

Moderate

Before embarking on a “Moderate” trek or tour, you should be at least partly acclimatized to the high altitude of the Andes as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. These tours are still very manageable without special training as long as you have spent a day or two at high altitude. Terrain often includes moderate up- and downhill walking with possible rough patches or infrequently-traveled sections.

Challenging

“Challenging” treks or tours require that you are acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 2-3 days or more at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. You will need to be in good physical shape, and it’s recommended that you train at least some beforehand, possibly with running, biking, or strenuous workout videos. Terrain is often rough, sometimes with steep up- and downhills and often not highly traveled. Generally, these last several hours.

Formidable

These “Formidable” treks are our most difficult treks and require serious effort but are also the most rewarding. It is necessary to be in pristine physical condition. Again, you must be acclimated to the Andes’ high altitude before leaving as it affects your oxygenation, energy levels, and hydration. Spending 4-5 days or more if possible at high altitude will help you on the trek. You will need hiking shoes and possibly trekking poles for these treks. It is important to train physically before these treks so that your body is prepared for the strenuous nature of the trip. Generally, these last at least an entire day in infrequently-traveled areas with rough paths.

Continuing with the tour, we will move onto the temple of Qoricancha Cusco, the famous Sun Temple of Qosqo.

Also, the trek in the morning is rather physically intense, more so for those who are not accustomed to hikes in this altitude, yet it is also one of the most spectacular. Therefore, in the first part of the trail, we will walk approximately 1 hour and a half through the cover of a densely vegetated Andean forest until arriving to the campsite of Three Stones, where we will take a short rest.

Likewise, Two hours later we will arrive to another campsite, Llulluchapampa, where we will take an extended rest with snacks and hot drinks.

Here we will enter as a group to the main entrance for registration before returning to the site for the main tour to learn more about this magical place of beauty and culture left by our ancestors.

Also, we suggest that all medical or doctor recommendations be acknowledged, even if this means canceling your travel plans. It is recommended that all clients 60 years of age or above arrive to Cusco at least 03 days before your trekking date to adjust to the altitude.

If I have more than 55 years?

Likewise, all clients age 55 + speak in advance with their physician to consult the best way to plan your trek and inquire that your travel insurance covers activities such as adventure. We require a medical file confirming a good state of health and NO cardiac problems.

Are hiking sticks or poles necessary?

For this cusco to machu picchu tour package more than any other, we do recommend hiking sticks, especially for those with any known knee problems. Above all, the trail is full of steep ascents and steep drops on narrow Inka stairs. That is to say, The poles will assist your balance and reduce the impact on your knees. *Inkayni Peru Tours and the INC (National Culture Institute) asks that you not use metal-tipped poles that will damage the trail.*

In addition, Inkayni Peru Tours will rent hiking sticks for $15

Where can I store my baggage that I dont need for the inka trail?

Therefore, In the case that your hotel may not provide this service, we will store your baggage safely in our office free of charge for your cusco to machu picchu tour package – lake titicaca tour.

Should I hire an additional porter?

Above all, remember that group service includes a personal porter to carry your things up to 05 kg / 11.02 lb. Before the start of your machu picchu 4 day hike, we will provide you with a duffle bag to bring your necessities, such as; sleeping bag (average 2,5 kg), and extra clothing (average 2,5 kg). So, Remember that your porter will not be hiking at your side during the inca trail hike, which means you will still need to carry a daypack to have your things on-hand throughout the day, such as drinking water, snacks, camera, fleece, and raincoat.

How does Inkayni Peru Tours care for the porters?

a) GOOD WAGES:

As a responsible tour agency, we pay our porters a salary of 210 Soles for the 4-day inca trail hike AND their transportation expenses (nearly 20% above the legal minimum salary, making Inkayni one of the best trekking agencies in Cusco).

Ideally, all agencies in Cusco should pay this amount, yet sadly, to this day there are many agencies not even paying the minimum legal salary.

b) APPROPRIATE WEIGHT LIMIT:

Within the basic policies of Inkayni Peru Tours is respect for all staff, which means not exceeding weight limits.

This factor is extremely important when choosing a travel agency for trekking.

Unfortunately, there are many irresponsible companies (even big-name commercial companies that have often grown due to labor exploitation) that force porters to carry well over 25 kg and disrespect their rights.

For this reason, Inkayni Peru tours will not offer you a private bathroom, hot showers, or personal porter that will carry more than 5kg. This may exceed weight limits for our porters.

We kindly ask that before you choose a company for your trek that offers you these luxury services that you consider the extra weight that will be on the shoulders of your porters.

c) INSURANCE:

Above all, Inkayni Peru Tours is one of few companies that offer insurance for our porters.

d) TREKKING UNIFORMS:

Certainly, Inkayni Peru Tours offers proper attire for all our staff.

What is the weather like during the trek?

Most importantly, The best time for making the trek with good weather is between April – October when there are minimal rainfall and clear skies. The driest months are June – August, which is winter in the Andes.

When is the rainy season in Cusco – exploring through the sacred land of the incas?

Certainly, January to March is summer in Peru, which means the rainy season for Cusco and especially the inca trail hike, which is located mostly in the tropical cloud forest.

Are there bathrooms on the Inka Trail?

Many new outhouses have been added throughout the Inca Trail hike, mostly in the main designated campsites. This has greatly improved the sanitary conditions of the Trail, yet still the situation is not always perfect. All outhouses have cold running water. We recommend you bring a hand-disinfectant for use after visiting the public outhouses. Before each meal, we will provide you with hot water and soap for washing.

What is the potable water situation along the trail?

Certainly, Inkayni Peru Tours will provide you with boiled water after each meal-time, starting with lunch on the second day (02).

Can I buy bottled water during the inca trail hike – cusco to machu picchu tour package?

Before this, you may purchase bottled water from small local ‘shops’ located outside local homes, offering water, Gatorade, or soda. So, It is recommended that each person drink at least 02 to 03 liters of water each day.

Likewise, You will also find small streams, or water on tap roughly every 2 hours along the trail where you may fill your bottle, provided you have proper filtration/purification system. Above all, Water in the Andes is generally clean, but even though it may appear pure, you still must use a purification method for it to become safely potable.

Please consider the environment when you decide to travel and make a trek. So, Everyday technology is improving to make our lives easier and avoid trash. Bring a purification system or bottle (such as UV light) to avoid buying bottled water.

If I am traveling alone may I have my own tent ?

Can I rent a private tent for inca trail hike – lake titicaca tour package?

So, If you are traveling alone and are open to sharing a tent, perhaps with someone of the same sex, there will be no additional cost. Consequently, NOTE that if you wish to have a private tent, there is an additional cost.

Is it guaranteed that we camp at Wiñaywayna on the third night of the Inka Trail ?

Wiñay Wayna is the closest campsite to Machu Picchu, making it the favorite site for everyone. At a mere two (02) hours from Machu Picchu, camping at Wiñay Wayna allows groups to arrive very early in the morning to the Sun Gate. Unfortunately, there is not much space available at this site for all groups on the Inka Trail. The second closest campsite known as Phuyupatamarca is still a 5-hour hike to Machu Picchu.

What if we can’t camp at Wiñay Wayna on the inca trail hike – cusco to machu picchu tour package?

When trekking permits are purchased, the government is responsible for assigning campsites to groups. Inkayni has the reputation of finalizing group reservations and obtaining permits well before other companies, which means we often have the blessing of camping at Wiñay Wayna for the majority of our treks. Between 2014 – 2018 we camped at Wiñay Wayna 99% of the time. One group in all of 2015 could not camp at Wiñay Wayna, so they decided to arrive to Machu Picchu on the third day, sleep in Aguas Calientes, and return to Machu Picchu the 4th morning for sunrise. All of 2018 had us at Wiñay Wayna for our groups on Inca trail hike.

Where do I have to be the morning of the start of my trek and where will I finish at the end?

When the tour starts and ends – exploring through the sacred land of the incas & lake titicaca tour?

Certainly, We will pick you up from your hotel to begin your trek, and upon finishing, we will also leave you at your hotel.

I wish to have a train company or train option different to that which Inkayni Peru Tours offers, is this possible?

If you wish to change your train company or option (such as Vistadome de Peru Rail, to Ollantaytambo or the whole route to Poroy), or your departure time, additional fees may apply. To clarify, You must speak with one of our sales agents to inquire about availability and the additional costs of cusco to machu picchu tour package.
