  • Tip for your guide(s) and driver

WHAT TO BRING TO THE TOURIST CIRCUIT FOR A BETTER EXPERIENCE?

  1. Original passport!
  2. A backpack that can hold all your belongings, preferably with a belt for more comfort on short hikes and explorations
  3. 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.
  4. Pack enough padlocks for each double zipper to keep your hands from running around and lock your essentials, even in your hotel room.
  5. 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 are forbidden in Machu Picchu.
  6. A good pair of walking or hiking shoes, steps, and uneven cobblestone surfaces abound, and stones can become slippery in the rain.
  7. 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.
  8. A warm jacket. Nights and mornings can get quite cold, especially between June and September, so an excellent waterproof and windproof jacket is ideal.
  9. Another good option is to wear a warm fleece under a lightweight, waterproof, windproof jacket.
  10. Bring clothes that you can layer. Cool mornings mean you must pack before heading out; however, you may want to take your t-shirt and shorts off before 11:00. It is excellent for warm layers and pants that unzip into shorts. You only need to change a few clothes because you can wash them cheaply anywhere.
  11. Good sunscreen and a sun hat are recommended; due to Peru’s high altitude and proximity to the equator, regular sunscreen is recommended to avoid unpleasant sunburns. Beware; even if it’s cloudy here, you’ll get burned badly.
  12. Insect protection, especially for this outdoor trip
  13. 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, and 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.
  14. Use earplugs when you’re stuck in a noisy room or want to sleep on a bus or plane.
  15. Pack your toiletries in a zippered bag. The altitude can cause shampoo and other bottles to burst, leaving a mess in your bag. Keep all toiletries in airtight bags to avoid unnecessary clutter.
  16. A camera with lots of memory and a battery takes all the great photos you want!
  17. Cash in local currency to purchase items.

Secure your permits through licensed tour operators who manage the reservation process, ensuring a hassle-free experience on this sought-after trek.

Yes, permits are required for the Short Inca Trail and are limited to protecting the environment. Tickets can be obtained through licensed tour operators facilitating the reservation process, including securing your entrance to Machu Picchu.

The best time to embark on the Short Inca Trail is during the dry season, typically from April to October. During these months, you can enjoy more stable weather conditions and clearer views of the surrounding landscapes.

The culmination of the Short Inca Trail is the awe-inspiring arrival at Machu Picchu. Trekkers enter through the Sun Gate, witnessing the ancient city unfold before them as the first rays of sunlight illuminate this UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Accommodations on the Short Inca Trail typically include comfortable campsites with basic amenities. Trekkers should be prepared for rustic conditions, embracing the immersive experience of being surrounded by nature.

Guided tours are commonly available for the 2-day Inca Trail, providing travelers with knowledgeable guides who share historical insights and cultural context and ensure a smooth and enriching experience.

The difficulty level of the Short Inca Trail can be considered moderate. The trek involves ascending and descending stone steps, navigating through varying terrains such as lush forests, and reaching altitudes that may challenge some individuals. Inti Punku, the Sun Gate, which stands at approximately 2,720 meters (8,923 feet) above sea level, is the highest point on the Short Inca Trail.

While the Short Inca Trail is less demanding than the more prolonged and strenuous Classic Inca Trail, it still requires a reasonable fitness level. Trekkers should be prepared for some uphill and downhill sections, and acclimatization to the altitude is essential to minimize the risk of altitude-related issues.

It’s advisable for participants to engage in physical preparation before the trek and to take their time during the journey, allowing for breaks and adjustments to the altitude. Additionally, being in good health and having a positive mindset contribute to a more enjoyable experience on the Short Inca Trail.

The Short Inca Trail is a condensed version of the classic Inca Trail, and it typically spans approximately 10 kilometers (6.2 miles). The trek usually takes two days, making it a shorter alternative to the four-day Classic Inca Trail.

The starting point of the Short Inca Trail is often at a place called Kilometer 104 along the railway from Cusco to Aguas Calientes.

While shorter, the Short Inca Trail still provides a fulfilling and memorable experience, offering a taste of the Inca Trail’s beauty and the spectacular Machu Picchu.

Whether the Short Inca Trail is worth it depends on individual preferences, time constraints, and physical capabilities. Here are some factors to consider:

Limited Time: If you have limited time in Peru and want to experience the beauty of the Inca Trail and Machu Picchu but cannot commit to the longer trek, the Short Inca Trail is a valuable option. It lets you witness stunning landscapes and reach Machu Picchu in two days.

Physical Ability: The Short Inca Trail is less physically demanding than the Classic Inca Trail, making it accessible to a broader range of hikers. The Short Inca Trail might be a better fit if you prefer a moderately challenging trek without the total exertion of a more extended journey.

Cultural Experience: The trek allows you to immerse yourself in Incan history and culture, with knowledgeable guides sharing insights. If you value cultural experiences and historical significance, the Short Inca Trail offers a rich and condensed exploration.

Machu Picchu Arrival: The Short Inca Trail culminates in the arrival at Machu Picchu through the Sun Gate, providing a unique and dramatic entrance to the ancient citadel. If the anticipation and approach to Machu Picchu are essential aspects of your journey, the Short Inca Trail enhances this experience.

However, suppose you have the time and physical ability. Some may argue that the longer Classic Inca Trail offers a more immersive and complete experience, allowing for a deeper connection with the landscapes and a greater sense of accomplishment.

The 2-day trek combines cultural immersion with breathtaking landscapes, allowing you to absorb the rich history of the Incas while enjoying a condensed yet fulfilling journey to Machu Picchu.

The 2-day Inca Trail balances time efficiency and a fulfilling trekking experience, making it an ideal choice for those seeking a shorter yet rewarding journey to Machu Picchu.

Essential items include comfortable hiking shoes, a daypack, a refillable water bottle, sunscreen, a hat, and rain gear. It’s also recommended to pack a camera to capture the breathtaking scenery.

While the highest point on the short Inca Trail is lower than on the traditional trek, Machu Picchu is at a significant altitude. Spending a day in Cusco before the tour can help acclimatize to the elevation.

Peruvian regulations require visitors to the Inca Trail, including the short version, to be accompanied by a licensed guide. Booking through a reputable tour operator ensures compliance with these regulations and a more enriching experience.

Yes, most tour operators include meals during the trek. These typically include box lunch and snacks. Be sure to check with your specific tour provider for details.

The main reason for the closure of the Short Inca Trail in February each year is to safeguard the integrity of visitors with a great spirit of adventure and that of the tour guides and other support staff.

Since 2002, and like every year, the Inca Trail and 18 other archeological sites located along the route are closed to visitors in February. Conservation, maintenance, and cleaning activities were carried out that month.

That is to say, in February, treatments are carried out on deteriorated sections, repair and repair of terraces, maintenance of the areas near the campsites, and mowing of the thick vegetation. The objective is to leave everything ready and suitable for the entry of travelers.

Practical Tips: Preparing for the Adventure

Packing Essentials for the 2 Day Inca Trail Tour As you pack, remember to bring sturdy trekking shoes, a waterproof backpack, comfortable clothing, and essentials like sunscreen and insect repellent.

Physical Preparation: While the hike is manageable, preparing physically is a good idea. Regular cardiovascular and strength training will help you tackle the trail with ease. Additionally, acclimatizing to the altitude in Cusco is essential for your safety and enjoyment.

Wonderul site, great tour operator and excellent guide We had an evening flight so wanted to do something during the first half of the day, really glad we picked this half-day tour of the Sillustani ruins. The tour agent (Kondor Path Tours) was very flexible about our pickup time and dropoff options, so that really helped. We were able to arrange a later pickup in the morning that included all our luggage and then they dropped us off at the Juliaca airport after the tour. But the Sillustani towers themselves are a real treat to see and learn about all their history. The site itself is very serene and beautiful, with the lake in the background from the main viewpoint. Our tour guide (Richy/Ricardo) was excellent and very helpful and knowledgeable. He gave us not only the ancient history of Sillustani and the adjoining areas, but also a more contemporary history of Peru and the Puno region I have to add that he went over and above by even helping us to check our bags in at JUL airport!

Maras and Moray + Pachamanca Easily the best tour experience I had during my trip to Peru. I highly recommend Kondor Tours as the customer service is top-notch. James responded to my queries almost instantly each time and was very helpful. We were even treated to a can of cusquenia beer each when we visited the office! Our guide Alfredo was absolutely amazing and we were fortunate to have him as our guide for the tour. He is very passionate about his job and shared so much valuable information with us. He has a very candid character and we were very comfortable throughout! I highly recommend requesting for him as your guide (the best we had while touring Peru for 3 weeks). Also, I would say opting in for and additional traditional peruvian pachamanca meal experience must not be missed. The community people were very warm and gracious hosts and it is eye opening to witness the preparation of such a traditional feast normally done only for special occasions like weddings. We even had time for dancing! Two thumbs up for sure!

3-day Choquequirao Trek We took a three-day private group trek to Choquequirao as a family of five. Kondor Path Tours organized a pick-up and drop-off in Urubamba instead of Cusco and did an extra stop at the Saywhite archeological site. Everything went very smoothly during the entire trip, meals and accommodation were as expected or better. The trek itself is quite demanding (particularly in three days), but the nature/ views/ Choquequirao/ dearth of tourists largely compensate. Anyway, we were looking for a physical challenge! Our guide Oron was great. Explaining, motivating, solving potential problems/ demands. We would definitely recommend Kondor Path Tours.

Alittle bit of everything We had a last minute change of plans when it came to our tour. We were supposed to visit the rainbow mountain but with the recent protesting we called to see if we could change last minute and they were very accommodating. Odon and Fernando were amazing! They took us to see multiple attractions and made us feel very at home. And kudos to Renee for the amazing driving. I would highly recommend using this company for a tour.

Family vacation Kondor path tours arranged a couple of private tours on our last vacation in Peru. Our first tour was the Rainbow Mountains and the next day we did the sacred Valley Tour. The administrative services were excellent, we met at our hotel the day before our tours and our head guide, Fredy, explained everything perfectly, including what to wear and bring for each tour. On the tour days, our guides (Fredy and Juan Carlos) and driver (Juan Carlos) were great! very knowledgeable, considerate about our party, always helpful and ready to answer questions and meet the expectations (completely different expectations because we had different ages in our party (from 11 to 69 years)) of each party member. The rainbow mountain is awesome and is is really helpful to go with a guide that knows about the area, but also about hiking!!!

He knew where to stand to get the best photos and made everything fun and accommodating. The horse ride up made it much easier to enjoy the final hike. Lunch was large and tasty. Door to door service.
