The Inca Trail trek to Machu Picchu in Peru is one of the greatest treks in Peru, and indeed the world.
The Inca Trail trek is deservedly the most famous footpath in South America. It has everything: gorgeous mountain scenery, cloudforest and lush sub-tropical vegetation with numerous species of flowers, a stunning destination (Machu Picchu) and, above all, the Inca remains that give the trail its name.
There are Inca paving stones, Inca stairways, an Inca tunnel, and of course the ruins: Runkuracay, Sayacmarca, Phuyupatamarca, Huiñay Huayna (Wiñay Wayna) and Machu Picchu itself.
Andean Trails makes a donation to a Porter’s Community Project near Cusco for every person that books the Inca Trail through us. Currently, this money is being used to buy school equipment in the towns and villages where our porters live.

Inca Trail Permits
Inca Trail trek permits are sold all year except February on a first come, first served basis. They sell out many months in advance, especially in the peak period of May-Sept. Please contact the office for the latest availability.
If the Trail is full, you could try our Lares Trek, which dips through beautiful valleys and weaving communities, or the more demanding but stunning Salkantay trek.

Extensions and alternatives
We also offer a Luxury Inca Trail trek, suited for those who want a slower trek and more home comforts.
The Inca Trail features in many of our Peru group trips: As part of the cultural tour that is our Peru Highlights trip, our multi-activity Cusco Active, or our specifically designed Family Holiday.
For those looking for a longer and more remote and adventurous trip, go Beyond the Inca Trail and include Salkantay, or incorporate rafting on the Inca Explorer.
All these trips can be extended with Amazon journeys, more treks and rafting.

Itinerary

Introduction
The Inca Trail is deservedly the most famous footpath in South America. It has everything: gorgeous mountain scenery, cloudforest and lush sub-tropical vegetation with numerous species of flowers, a stunning destination (Machu Picchu) and, above all, the Inca remains that give the trail its name.
The Vilcabamba range, approximately 85km long, is a really spectacular part of the Andes, located northwest of Cusco, between the Apurímac and Urubamba rivers. Several giant snow covered peaks rise out of the Vilcabamba massif, often clearly visible from the Lima to Cusco flight (sit on the left side of the plane) and also from the drive between Cusco and the start of the Inca Trail.
Salkantay (6,271m / 20,575ft) is the highest peak in the area, towering above all others. This mountain was highly revered by the Incas and is still very important to the people living in the Cusco area. Its name in Quechua means “wild mountain”. The other big snow covered mountain you see is Pumasillo (6075m), west of Machu Picchu and highest peak in the mini Sacsarayoc Range, seen from the second pass on the Inca Trail.

Inca history
Typical of the region is the verdant cloud forest of the rugged eastern side of the Vilcabamba mountains and the deep gorges of the Apurímac and Urubamba. They’ve been gouged out of granite by centuries of torrents of glacier melt water forcing their way north and eastwards on the way to the rainforest.
The area is rich in Inca history: for nearly 50 years this remote region served as a hideout for their resistance movement as it tried to regain control from the Spanish invaders in the 16th century. The Incas left behind many ceremonial platforms, gate houses (tambos) and a network of beautifully constructed pathways linking their strongholds, the well known Machu Picchu, and lesser known but equally important sites such as Choquequirau and Espiritu Pampa.

Itinerary details

Day 1: Transfer from Cusco, trek to Huayllabamba (12km trek)
We pick you up early from your hotel in Cusco. After picking up all other trekkers you travel by bus, via the highland villages of Chinchero, Urubamba and Ollantaytambo, for the 3 hour journey to the start of the Inca Trail.
From the road there are great views of the Cordillera Urubamba mountain range and the snow capped peak of Veronica 5860m.
Most of our groups have up to 16 trekkers with one main English speaking guide and an assistant guide. Trekkers come from all over the world, and are of all ages.
At Chilca, where we start the trek, you walk down to the entrance, where your tickets are checked. Sign in, cross the bridge and make a left turn following the trail gently along the river bank until uphill we reach a eucalyptus grove and Llactapata – the first major ruins on the route. Vast retaining walls have converted the steeply sloping hillside into agricultural terraces: an amazing sight.
Just below Llactapata the Río Cusichaca, a tributary of the Urubamba, takes a spectacular plunge into the ground and runs through a subterranean channel for some way. The trail climbs steeply out of the ruins over a low pass, and the hike up the valley begins.
After about an hour you’ll reach a bridge, putting you on the other side of the valley, and will continue on to the village of Huayllabamba (3,000m). You will reach it in a further half hour. By this time it is likely to be very hot and you will welcome the cold drinks at the village which makes its living out of Inca Trail hikers. First night camp with basic facilities.

Day 2: Huayllabamba to Pacamayo (12km)
At Huayllabamba the trail turns right (northwest) up the Llullucha valley. After walking steeply upwards for about 11/2 hours you will drop down to a grassy clearing, popularly known as The Forks.
The path then enters woods – first scrub, then very beautiful cloudforest where the trees are hung with moss. These fairy-tale woods will help keep your mind off the fact that you are still going steeply uphill with no sign of respite. Eventually, however, the trees become more stunted and you emerge into a meadow, Llulluchapampa. From The Forks to the meadow is about 2 hours. This is the last campsite before the pass, aptly named (if you are a female hiker) Abra de Huarmihuañusqa, ‘Dead Woman’s Pass’ (4,198m), which you can see ahead of you.
It will take you about 1 1/2 hours to climb to the top of the pass. This is the highest point on the trail, so take heart – if you survive this, you’ll survive the other passes. Take time to look around you. You should be able to pick out the circular ruins of Runkuracay ahead, just below the next pass. The descent is steep but not difficult. Just follow the trail on the left side of the valley to the valley floor and the next designated campsite at Pacamayo (3,600m). Nearby are some huts with basic toilets and sinks built by the INC.

Day 3: Pacamayo to Wiñay Wayna (15km)
From the valley floor it will take you about an hour to reach the next set of Inca ruins. Runkuracay, a ruin not, perhaps, very impressive in itself, but occupying a commanding position overlooking the valley, and at the end of a series of rock-hewn steps that at last give you a feeling that you are on the trail of the Incas. From Runkuracay the path is clear over the second pass (Abra de Runkuracay, 4,000m) and, excitingly, much of the time you are on Inca steps. The descent down the steps is steep, so take care.
Just before the trail turns right, you’ll see the sign for Sayacmarca. These ruins lie about an hour from the top of the pass and the name, which means ‘the Inaccessible or Secret City’, is apt. You approach Sayacmarca up a superbly designed stone staircase. This is a diversion (the main trail continues its gradual descent to the right) but don’t let fatigue persuade you to miss it.
Like so many Inca ruins, no one really knows the purpose of Sayacmarca, but these are the visible facts: it was built on a precipice commanding a spacious view; there are no agricultural terraces so the complex could not have supported many inhabitants; ritual baths and an aqueduct run round the outside of the main wall; there are curious stone rings set in the wall by trapezoid openings. For us the mystery adds to the beauty, and it is beauty all the way from here – if you are fortunate with the weather.
The trail continues down to the valley floor. From here it becomes a glorious Inca Road, being on a raised causeway over marshy ground that then rises up through cloudforest. Stone paving on raised stone foundations, steps and a gentle gradient make for easy walking, and even if it is raining (and it often is) you will marvel at the Inca workmanship.
Before the climb to the third pass there is a campsite with basic toilets. During the ascent you climb through two Inca tunnels, and if it is a clear day you will have the added bonus of a view of Salkantay over to your left. The pass (3,700m) is used as a campsite, but it gets crowded and water is some way below. Just below the pass, about 2 hours from Sayacmarca, are the impressive ruins of Phuyupatamarca. Access is down a steep flight of stairs. Clear water runs through the channels cut into the rock that feed five baths, leading one from the other down the hill.
An Inca staircase leads from the west side of the ruins (the far end from the baths) and disappears into the jungle, leading you down a thousand steps. Literally. You’ll think that your knees will never feel the same again. The trek comes at the hostel nearby the ruins of Huiñay Huayna (Wiñay Wayna). This is the last camping spot before Machu Picchu and it is often very full. Basic camping facilities. There is a small restaurant. Beer! This is also the last place to fill up with water before Machu Picchu itself.
Huiñay Huayna lies just below the hostel round to the right as you are descending, and is the most extensive of the ruins so far. It has some beautiful stonework, a fantastic location, and an air of mystery often lacking in the crowded Machu Picchu ruins.

Day 4: Huiñay Huayna to Machu Picchu (5km), train to Cusco or hotel in Aguas Calientes
The trail from the hostel to Machu Picchu (1 1/2 hours away) is clearly marked. Most people have a very early start as they try to leave Wiñay Wayna by 5.30am so they can get to Machu Picchu before sunrise. The sky starts getting light by 6am and the first rays of the sun reach Machu Picchu around 7am. The trail contours a mountainside and disappears into cloudforest full of begonias, bromeliads and tree ferns, before coming to a steep flight of stairs leading up to the first Inca gate. The path continues to the main gate, Intipunku – ‘the Gateway of the Sun’ – and suddenly the whole of Machu Picchu is spread out before you. A magical moment.
When we arrive there is plenty of time to take photos of Machu Picchu. We walk down through the site to the main entrance where you can safely leave your backpacks. You can also use the toilet and have a drink in the restaurant just outside the entrance. We head back into the site for a complete tour of the major sectors of Machu Picchu. The tour takes about 2 hours so by about mid-morning you’ll be free to continue to explore the ruins alone.
The train back to Cusco leaves from Aguas Calientes, the nearest village to the ruins of Machu Picchu, at approximately 16:30 and you get back into Cusco for about 21:00.
We suggest that after visiting Machu Picchu you take the bus down to Aguas Calientes at 15:30 at the latest (depending on your train departure time). Buses depart every 15 minutes. Check with the guide for actual times. This leaves you plenty of time at the site or to do one of the other walks nearby.
There are many restaurants in Aguas Calientes to satisfy all tastes and budgets. Of course you could also visit the hot springs that Agues Calientes is named for, which will help ease those aching muscles. Entrance to the springs costs US$2, and you should allow a couple of hours to fully enjoy them.

Please note
We include the hiring of a personal porter (one between three) to help you carry your personal items such as clothes, sleeping bag etc. This will allow you to enjoy the walk even more. You need to take a (duffel) bag – preferably lockable – for the items you want the porter to carry for you. This MUST be waterproof – or pack your things inside plastic bags. Keep the weight to 8kgs per person (luxury) or 6 kgs per person (standard) – porters carry a total of 20kgs.
Vegetarian meals available if you let us know in advance.
An extra night in Aguas Calientes can easily be arranged for you if required. Hotels costs and costs associated with returning to Machu Picchu the following day are additional.
Responsible Tourism

Andean Trails actively supports several community projects in Peru. We operate the Inca Trail together with a Cusco company, owned and managed locally.
On the Inca Trail we employ local staff, who are paid fair wages. We provide free life insurance to all of our porters. Tented accommodation and meals are provided for all trekking staff as well as foam mats, sleeping bags and rain ponchos. We have also provided the staff with trekking shoes. We try to ensure our porters carry a maximum of only 20kg. We offer them backpacks and they generally use back supports.
Clean burning fuel is used to cook the meals on the Inca Trail and porters carry gas stoves and butane bottles. We use biodegradable detergents when washing the cooking and eating utensils. If any part of our tour or trek is operated by another company, we try to ensure that high standards are maintained.
Our additional support helps the Huchuy Yachaq project which supports children and families in one of the poorest communities in the district of Cusco.

Luggage
Any equipment that you are not going to need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Don’t leave items of value with your bags, put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt. Best put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.
On the final morning of the trek your porter will take your bags directly to Aguas Calientes and wait for you there. After visiting Machu Picchu you can pick up your bags. Your personal porter will be waiting for you to give you your bags. Please check that all of your items are in order. If you have any problems please bring it to the attention of the guide immediately.

Altitude sickness
The most common cause of sickness on the Inca Trail is dehydration. Physical exercise, hot sunshine and dry high altitude air all combine to cause you to lose fluids rapidly. Take a water bottle (1.5 litre capacity) and water purification tablets and ensure that you drink plenty, possibly 4-5 litres per day. At meals times we’ll provide you with tea, mate, coffee etc but you’ll need plenty more besides. When you go to the toilet check the colour of your urine. If it is clear like water then you’re fine but if it is dark yellow then you are dehydrated and need to drink more. Extremes of temperature can also lead to sickness. Try to stay out of the sun as much as possible. Use a sun hat and sun cream and protect the back of your neck. If you find yourself waiting on other group members then try to wait in the shade. When the sun goes in the temperature can drop quickly so always have a fleece or jumper in your own day sack to put on. When you get to camp put on more clothes and keep warm.
When trekking at altitude the secret is not to overstrain yourself since you don’t make such a rapid recovery upon resting as you may at sea-level. Instead, try to make the trek in small, manageable sections. Listen to your heart rate and when it feels as if your heart is going to jump straight out of your chest it’s a sure sign to stop and rest for a few minutes until it returns to normal. Make frequent rests and take your time to enjoy the scenery – it’s not a race and no one will leave you behind.

Water on the Trail
You’ll come across a small stream or spring every 1½ hours along the trail where you can fill up your water bottle. We advice that you sterilizing tablets carefully following the instructions. The sterilizing tablets ‘MicroPur’ can be bought in most pharmacies in Cusco. With these you put the tablets in the water and then wait 40 minutes before drinking. Try to ensure that the mouth of the bottle is also fully sterilized, by tipping your bottle up and down and allowing sterilised water to flow out before you drink. Bottled mineral water can also be carried from Cusco, bought at km82, just before Wayllabamba, at Wiñay Wayna and on arrival at Machu Picchu.

Toilet facilities on the standard trek
All of the campsites that we use have a toilet block with running water. Facilities have improved a lot on the Inca Trail in the last few years. If you do need to go the toilet when there aren’t any toilets then do so well away from the trail and water supplies; dig a hole, and take the paper with you in a bag to deposit in one of the several bins along the way, do not leave it to blow about in the wind. There are shower facilities at Wiñay Wayna on day 3 although these basic and most people wait until Aguas Calientes showers or their hotel in Cusco.

Safety (steep drops)
The Inca Trail is a mountainous trek. There are a few sections where the path hugs the mountainside with steep drops to the side. There are no handrails or fences so you must take care. When wanting to pass fellow trekkers in these sections make sure they are aware you are there and wishing to pass. If you are slow please be considerate and allow others to pass. Please be patient and if you have children with you make sure that they are at your side.

Machu Picchu Rules and Regulations
Don’t throw rubbish along the trail. Take your rubbish with you and deposit it in official bins at the campsites. Don’t pick wild flowers or hunt animals and birds. Campfires are not allowed anywhere in the Sanctuary. Tour companies now have to cook with gas and not with kerosene. Smoking on the trail is banned apart from designated locations at the campsites. This ban follows several large fires caused by carelessly discarded cigarette butts. Don’t take any Inca stones away with you as souvenirs.

Practical information
Small groups mean flexibility and informality. If there are more than two people on your departure you will be accompanied throughout by a local tour leader. Your tour leader will be on hand to iron out any problems and give informed advice on things to do, where to eat etc. In towns we use clean, comfortable hotels. In more remote areas, accommodation can be more simple. When camping we use two person lightweight tents. On the trek, all equipment is transported for us and meals are prepared by our local cook. In smaller groups you will not have a tour leader with you throughout but will have local guides in each destination who will orientate you and provide you with all the information you need. Many of your activities – biking, rafting, trekking – will be in small groups of other travellers.

Fitness and experience
In order to get the most out of the tour you should be in good physical condition. It is not easy to grade the fitness level required for the trek, since it is a subjective matter. However, we have classified this trek as moderate. We trek approximately five to eight hours per day with several long ascents and descents. On the trek all personal belongings other than a day-pack are carried for you.

Altitude
Shortness of breath is normal when first arriving at altitude. Acclimatisation time is built into the tour programme. The highest point on the trek is 4200m, but we will be camping below that level.

Climate
Peru is located entirely within the tropics, but the climate varies significantly according to season and geographical zone.

Visas
Currently, no visa is required by British citizens visiting Peru, but your passport must be valid for at least six months after the date of travel. Non-British passport holders should check visa requirements with the Peruvian Embassy. All requirements are subject to change and should be confirmed before departure.

Vaccinations
Please check with your doctor or travel clinic for latest advice as requirements are subject to change. Vaccinations for yellow fever, typhoid, tetanus, hepatitis and polio are recommended and malaria precautions are needed for visiting jungle areas.

Personal expenses
We recommend you carry most funds in US dollars cash (mixed denomination, unmarked and undamaged bank notes) and some US dollar travellers cheques, which can be changed in larger towns and typically incur a 3% commission. Cash cards are also useful as ATM machines are available in most large towns visited on this itinerary. Credit cards can be used in some restaurants and for obtaining cash in certain banks.
The cost of the tour includes all meals while on the trek and all breakfasts elsewhere, but you will need money to cover: other meals, snacks and drinks (approximately 30-50% cheaper than Europe); handicrafts; airport tax ($31 international, $6 national); optional excursions (rafting $30); extra entrance fees; tips; laundry etc.

International Flights
We can arrange your international flights at competitive rates as we are an ATOL-bonded agent. Approximate prices are shown on the Dates and Prices sheet sent with the brochure.

Insurance
Your insurance policy must cover you against medical expenses and repatriation. Please send us a copy of your policy as soon as possible after booking.

Luggage & Equipment
Bring a main piece of lockable luggage to be left in the Cusco hotel while you are trekking. For the trek, re-pack into a kit bag, holdall or rucksack. This will contain your sleeping bag, torch, toiletries, changes of clothes, spare footwear etc. It will be transported for you by porter. You will also require a day-pack to carry items you need to hand. (Please let us know if you’d like to be sent a comprehensive equipment list).

And lastly…
The “Inca Trail” travels through a remote and rarely visited part of Peru and we believe our clients should be aware that the remoteness that makes the Inca Trail so very special could also cause certain problems. Thus, whilst we endeavour to minimise the chances of anything unexpected happening, it has to be noted that no itinerary can or should be rigidly adhered to. This is the very nature of Adventure Travel and we expect our clients to be prepared for delays and slight alterations in our programmed events.
The Inca Trail involves trekking over several high passes up to 4200m and involves steep descents on old Inca steps-it is recommended that all clients should have some previous trekking experience and should be in reasonable fitness.
