  • I.D. that proves they have completed their vaccination against COVID-19 “in physical or digital.”
  • A day backpack (35 liters) that can hold all your belongings, preferably with a belt for more comfort on day tours and explorations
  • A rain cover for your backpack is a must, especially when traveling in the rainy season, to keep your clothes and personal items from getting wet.
  • Pack enough padlocks for each double zipper to keep your hands from running around and lock your essentials, even in your hotel room.
  • Bottle of water. Plastic disposal is a real issue, so we recommend buying large bottles and transferring the water to a Reusable bottle – Plastic bottles do forbid in Machu Picchu.
  • A good pair of walking or hiking shoes, steps, and uneven cobblestone surfaces abound, and stones can become slippery in the rain.
  • Rainstorm poncho. Time changes very fast here. An ideal solution is to carry a good-quality Poncho in your backpack, especially during the December/March rainy season.
  • A warm jacket. Nights and mornings can get quite cold, especially between June and September, so an excellent waterproof and windproof jacket is ideal.
  • Another good option is to wear a warm fleece under a lightweight waterproof, windproof jacket.
  • Bring clothes that you can layer. Cool mornings mean you may need to pack before heading out; however, you may want to take your t-shirt and shorts off before 11:00. Great for warm layers and pants that unzip into shorts. You only need to change a few clothes because you can wash them cheaply anywhere.
  • Good sunscreen and sun hat; due to Peru’s high altitude and proximity to the equator, regular sunscreen recommends avoiding unpleasant sunburns. Beware; even if it’s’ cloudy here, you’ll get burned badly.
  • Insect protection, especially for this outdoor activity
  • Small first aid kits – In Cusco and other small towns, there are pharmacies where you can buy basic first aid and medical supplies “for superficial cuts, bruises, upset stomachs.” However, please bring enough prescription medicines, as some brands and types of drugs may not be available in Peru. A good rule of thumb is to carry enough prescription medication to cover your travel time, plus an extra week if you delay.
  • Use earplugs when you’re stuck in a noisy room or want to sleep on a bus or train.
  • A camera with lots of memory and a battery takes all the great photos you want!
  • Cash in local currency to purchase items.
  • Extra money for souvenirs, drinks, & tips for your Kondor staff
