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.
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.
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” 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.
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.
An extraordinary adventure, ideal for nature and ecotourism lovers. For those who love walking and observing exotic flora and fauna, impressive snowy peaks (Humantay, Salkantay, and others). Our tour is a part of the route to the famous Salkantay trek. We will visit the first Soraypampa camp, where we will start our ascent to the Humantay lake (4200 masl / 13 779 ft).
A fantastic journey that will give you time to know the Humantay glacier lake in all its splendor and tranquility. You will be fascinated by so much natural beauty that awaits the Humantay mountain near to the second-highest peak of Cusco.

During the ascent, we will have the opportunity to observe the diverse flora and fauna that inhabit the area.

WHY CHOOSE INKAYNI PERU TOURS?
Inkayni Peru Tours is working continuously to become one of Peru’s most responsible tour operators. Ideally, we try to keep our groups to a limit of 10 people. Since we entirely operate all of our treks, we have complete control over the quality of our service. We want to make sure that you have a great experience in all of our treks and tours.
It is also vital that everyone involved in the operation of our services is appropriately treated and cared for, and that the benefits brought by tourism are shared throughout the Peruvian communities. We now employ professional Peruvian guides (all bilingual), and local porters – the majority of whom have worked with us for over 02 years. All of our porters are picked from one of two mountain villages: Amaru (in the mountains behind Pisac), Cuper Alto (a small community beside Lake Piuray near Chinchero). Since the start, all of our porters have been given free sleeping bags, rain ponchos, backpacks, and suitable shoes. All of our porters sleep in a communal tent that has a waterproof floor, and they have access to any first aid equipment if necessary. We have provided free life insurance to ALL of our Inca Trail porters. We hope that the protection won’t be needed, but it should provide our porters and families with security in case of any accident. We don’t consider these items to be luxuries or any special treatment; we consider them to be the absolute minimum requirements for treating our porters fairly and as fellow human beings. Despite the fact that these men are working very hard to make a living, we try to make their time as enjoyable as possible, along with the guarantee that our porters are respected, paid fairly (above & beyond the accordance with the Porters Law and requirements set down by the Ministry of Labor) and have warm & dry accommodation and plenty of nutritious hot meals to eat. Although many other trekking companies will tell you this, few companies act to care for their porters genuinely.
Any day that is best for you as long as we have a minimum of 2 trekkers
Small Groups anywhere between 2 – 15 people, to keep your experience unique and assure personalized attention.
