  • Original passport (International Student Identity Card “ISIC” is applicable).
  • Travel insurance (strongly recommended but not required).
  • 1 Warm jacket/Sports clothing for sunny days
  • Light trekking shoes, shorts, and swimsuit
  • Comfortable clothing for biking and trekking
  • Windbreaker (It can be cold in the high Andes even if it is sunny.)
  • Rain poncho (Rainy season December to March)
  • 2 pairs of Trekking pants (not jeans), 1 hiking, 1 cotton–which is just enough. Please spray both pairs with an insect repellent spray  before the trip.
  • 3 pairs of underwear, 4 pairs of socks (Bamboo or cotton/nylon-blend socks dry faster than 100 percent cotton, which lose their softness when air-dried.) Inca Jungle bike ride Machu Picchu trek is nice to have a couple of extra pairs of socks to change into at night when you’re not hiking. Also, we recommend bringing both really heavy hiking socks and lighter socks as well. The weather is variable, so you want to make sure you’re not too cold or too hot.
  • 2 t-shirts, 2 long sleeve shirts “Bike Inca Jungle Machu Picchu”
  • Sun protection cream (SPF 45 or higher recommended).
  • Bug spray with 30% DEET in it–which you need, but it doesn’t work very well. The issue with Cusco outdoor is that most of the bugs are not mosquitoes. They are these small flies you can’t even see that leave weird bites that first look like you pricked your finger and then blow up into itchy red bumps. Unfortunately, these bugs seem to bite you no matter what kind of spray you put on, so bringing some anti-itch medication can be helpful.
  • Re-usable plastic or metal water container or a hydration pack such as Camel back (Inca Jungle bike ride Machu Picchu trek)
  • Flip flops to change into at night your toes will thank you!
  • Toiletries: toothbrush, toothpaste/floss, shampoo/conditioner, brush/comb, vaseline (great for potential foot blisters), feminine hygiene products, deodorant, nail clippers/file/tweezers, spare glasses and/or prescription, mini-eyeglass repair kit, contact lenses and supplies if needed, hand sanitizer, etc. Bring what you need, but pack light.
  • Medication (Imodium AD or something for your stomach, some people get an upset stomach on the trek. With 3 to 8 hours of hiking each day, you need to get over whatever the day throws at you quickly, so bring some meds.)
