We walked the 1 day version of the trail, which was wonderful and pleny for us with the time we had in Peru.
The early morning train-ride set the atmosphere, and as soon as we started the walk, and climbed up through the cloud forest...More
This is our second trip with Exodus Travel. They are an outstanding outfit with great attention to detail. We took their “comfort” option which allowed more personal luggage (up to 10kg including sleeping bag and mattress) and upgraded hotels. Very fortunate with weather despite start...More
The 4D/3N trek on the Inca Trail was the most grueling, humbling, exhilarating and rewarding experience. The scenery and the low oxygen at such attitudes takes your breath away - really. We went with Alpaca Expeditions and especially our guides with lead Jose Soto and...More
My daughter and I hiked the 4 day / 3 night Inca Trail to Machu Picchu. The 42km trail is challenging and a certain level of fitness will make it much more enjoyable.

We walked the short inca trail starting at KM104. It takes a day and you arrive at the Sun gate late afternoon. That is ideal as your first view of Mapu Picchu is when it is not so crowded. Except for a couple of places...More

We booked with Kaypi Peru Tours. They were wonderful.
My understanding is that tickets sell out quickly. I personally would not risk waiting until I was there for fear I would not get the opportunity to see Macchu Picchu.

The mentioned items will be fine. It starts out chilly but not for long as walking heats you up especially if the sun is out. You start peeling the clothes as the day goes on and then adding it back as the day ends.
